This requires some explanation.

I have 6GB of RAM, and am running Windows 7 64b.

I just updated to v115 from v56esr. I was using an extension that broke when the quantum update came out, and I wasn't willing to let go of it so I stopped updates. When the occasional website stopped working on the old version I would use Chrome for that website, but Firefox has always been my preference. Chrome was such a memory hog that I couldn't have more than a dozen tabs open at once before it crashed, and for me that is unacceptable. At this point however, enough websites have ceased to function in Firefox that it was worth it to me to update. After updating I found that Firefox uses just as much memory as Chrome. Where I previously could have 30 or 40 tabs loaded at once before running out of memory, now I only get about a dozen.

Question: In what version(s) did the memory consumption drastically change? What version can I revert to in order to bring memory consumption back to a manageable level? What other settings can I tweak to reduce memory usage? (For example, can I automatically reject loading of subframes?)

Please Note: - I use adBlock+ and I have made a habit of turning off tracking and rejecting cookies and notifications everywhere I go online to prevent excess resource usage, among other things. - I use very few extensions so there isn't really any memory to save there. - I understand that my computer is old and should be upgraded. Telling me to get a new computer or add more RAM is unhelpful and will not be appreciated. - I also understand that running out of date software is a security risk and is not recommended. I don't care, so don't bring that up. - And I also understand that I am a tab hoarder. Because of the way I work I typically have 50-100 tabs open, but I periodically close it so as to unload everything and usually don't have more than about 30 active tabs at once. - I know that some websites (particularly those with lots of subframes) use much more than other sites so my memory usage is entirely dependent on which sites I have open, and I know that I can open the task manager to close/unload unnecessary tabs and subframes. Having to do that frequently is a pain, and it doesn't work if I need all the tabs that are active.

Hi, I posted this question about 3 upgrades ago. I run Win7_64 (Yes I know it's outdated!) with dual monitors. After closing FF I was always left with a partial FF screen window open on the left monitor. It could only be cleared with a screen refresh, or dragging another app. screen over the top. I checked the obvious like GFX drivers (which had never changed), FF .exe processes seem to have terminated and I confirmed no other app did this (even Chrome). I suspected it was a FF shutdown problem? I asked the question here but didn't get a solution until now.

I've now installed the latest update 115.11.Oesr (64 bit) and have not seen the same problem for a week. If it stays that way, thanks to the FF team for fixing this annoying problem.

I have streamed TennisTV in the past no problem but now it stutters and task manager shows CPU 100%. It also shows Firefox running 2 processes which consume CPU and accounts for the 100%. So I closed one of the processes (the one using least memory) and it solved the problem. So how can I stop this second process from starting, it seems to consume CPU without actually doing anything?

The first post on the Facebook page will always display the timestamp, none of the remaining posts display the timestamp - only a dot or period. The space for the timestamp is there and hovering the mouse over it will show the date and time (so the information is on the page, just not displaying).

I've tried all the CSS fixes, installed the stylus extension, created a userContent.css - essentially everything that seemed to help people a year ago. None of it fixed the problem. I've disabled ALL add-ons - made no difference.

I'm on Windows 7 pro x64, Firefox 115.12.0esr (64-bit). Chrome doesn't have this problem.

As far as I'm aware it started within the last day or two.

Hi folks,

I run a server which is ONLY accessible from my own IP address. I have a particular script on that server which deletes certain log and temporary data files at the end of a job run. I have a problem where those files being deleted WITHOUT me visiting the page !!

Somehow Firefox appears to be randomly visiting that page all on it's own, without a window or tab open which is then deleting the files at the wrong times without me doing anything.

I have put some tracking in the script and the http request is DEFINITELY coming from my IP.

The user agent is being reported as: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:109.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/115.0

The page address is not being recorded in my browsing history.

How is this happening ? I only have 2 extensions installed: Tab Reloader and UBlock Origin.

Is there a way to track ALL activity that Firefox is doing so I can trace where this is coming from please ?

I'll point out that to my knowledge, this is ONLY happening on this specific page on my own server and not anywhere else that I am aware of. All my other scripts on that server have tracking as well, but none of them have been randomly run.

I need to track this down as right this moment I have the original script renamed and I'm having to use £%~£%&{ chrome to run it as I cannot trust FF NOT to run it !!!!

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi All,

I'm trying to change the appearance of the "Bookmarks Toolbar / Chevron >>" popup menu, which (after version 88) has turned bright white with extra padding between menu items and rounded corners.

I'm a fan of system menus, so I would really like the popup menu to look like the regular bookmarks menu from the top menu bar (see attached image).

I also like the subtle chiseled vertical line separating the favicons and the descriptions, and the 1px gray border around the menu, plus square corners.

I took a guess at some of the variable names, but only the menu's background color has changed.

Maybe someone knows how to change other attributes such as border color, radius, menu-item-height, padding, and add in the 3D vertical column line?

Thank you!

Here is my first attempt at the code...

#PersonalToolbar menupopup {
  /* Text color */
  --menu-color: #000 !important;
  --arrowpanel-color: #000 !important;
  --panel-color: #000 !important;
  /* Background color */
  --menu-background-color:  #f0f0f0 !important;
  --arrowpanel-background: #f0f0f0 !important;
  --panel-background: #f0f0f0 !important;
  /* Border color (if any) */
  --menu-border-color: #606060 !important;  /* not working on boomarks toolbar menu */
  --menu-border: 1px !important;  /* not working on boomarks toolbar menu */
  --menu-border-radius: 0px !important;  /* not working on boomarks toolbar menu */
}
/*** Tighten up drop-down/context/popup menu spacing (8 Sep 2021) ***/
menupopup:not(.in-menulist) > menuitem,

  padding-block: 0px !important; /* reduce to 3px, 2px, 1px or 0px as needed */ 
  min-height: unset !important; /* v92.0 - for padding below 4px */
}
