Hi! Recently, in my laptop, Firefox started freezing at every single startup; after force shutdown and restart, though, it works flawlessly each time, and for the whole duration of the session at the computer. Can anyone please suggest a solution?

My laptop set-up is practically identical to that of my PC, but the latter doesn't exhibit the same malfunction.

I've tried anything I could, including reinstalling the browser, removing all of my bookmarks (about 10,000) and addressing extensions (Decentraleyes, Default Bookmark Folder, Disable Tab Detach, Flagfox, I don't care about cookies, Keepa, Notifier for Gmail, Privacy Badger, To Google Translate, uBlock Origin, Undo Close Tab, Video DownloadHelper and Youtube's Annotations No More), but not even safe mode improved the situation in the least. Windows Defender also hasn't detected any malware and my web surfing habits are as safe as it gets.

The only deeper data I could gather is that the problem manifests with a progressive, rapid surge in CPU and RAM usage; the former, for example, is saturated to its total 16 GB in a matter of about 20 seconds.

My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 7586 with Windows 11 64 bit; Firefox version is the latest, 100.0, and, by the way, none of the recent updates has improved the situation.

Thanks to anyone who might come up with an educated guess!

In the past three weeks, I have been experiencing issues with the Firefox browser on my iMac MacOSX. First, the browser, after some amount of time of usage, seems slower. Second, if I keep windows with multiple tabs open overnight and then try to use them, they don't seem to function. The YouTube videos will not play. I can't move the tabs. I need to close the tabs and window altogether to get YouTube to function. Lastly, as of now, I can't even select and move tabs. I have never experienced this problem with Firefox on my iMac.

Prior to this I don't remember having these issues. What has changed?

I am getting more & more frustrated and exasperated, as simple browsing has become tortuously slow, with many sites taking forever to load, or only partially load, or have to be refreshed a couple times, to finally get it to load. And videos constantly freezing up, despite lots of free RAM, and a very high-speed internet connection. I assumed whatever was causing this would've been addressed in the last update, or two, but no, it's only getting worse.

Ever since I updated, typing has become incredibly challenging... There's big delays in the words showing up, letters come out in the wrong places, & it doesn't improve even when I clear cache, clear memory, & refresh pages. I don't know what else to do. Should I delete and re-install Firefox, or replace this with the previous version?

I am hoping someone from Firefox Development sees this and that something can be done for those of us who need to have several tabs open simultaneously. I often find myself engaged in research that for convenience requires that I have several tabs open which eventually leads to browser slow down, hanging, and sometimes a crash. Im convinced this is the correct analysis since defragging the ssd fixes it every time. I believe it would be very helpful if Firefox were to add a compressor to its file storage routine, first blush thoughts, possibly one compressed file per tab. When I get into heavy research I find myself defragging sometimes several times in a day, which temporarily fixes the problem. Any chance this can be added, or if anyone knows of a fix to this issue? rgds, j

I have to go into task manager to stop background processors from freezing my computer. Closing background processors in disk and memory. Sometimes there are as many as 10 background processors running but it seems to be a only a few and can't tell which one's until I figure it out. Sometimes I can by the amount of usage. I have to do this several times as I use my computer.

Hellow,

Since updating the latest firefox version 91.01 it has considerably slowed down browsing speed to an impossible crawl. The task manager shows the update as permanently on, sucking 100% resources. There´s something not right when it does this, and is becoming a bad habit of constantly refreshing firefox to get sensible operation.

It started by installing a clear cache which helped as firefox also hangs when connecting to the internet as a result it goes off-line at random times. Barely ideal. 

Is it worth rolling back to an earlier version that is more stable ? Any other users got debugging suggestions ?

Just today, firefox began slowing down and soft crashing for minutes at a time. During this time, I can interact with websites, but it doesn't change the visuals or show that anything has changed. new tabs open but don't show up, youtube video audio plays but the screen remains fixed. Firefox usage for just 7 tabs is well over 5 gigatybes of ram and 10-20% cpu at all times.

I attempted everything on the help page, including: killing and restarting firefox, updating firefox, updating windows, restarting my computer, killing firefox and rebooting again, disabling extensions, and updating graphics drivers.

after rebooting with the new windows update, firefox ran smoothly for a brief minute and showed normal cpu/ram usage, but quickly climbed back up to pre reboot numbers.

Hello!

I got this issue when i am clicking on input tools (on screen keyboard) on google search page,it opens up with a 3-5 second delay and this problem started after i installed version Firefox 90.0.02 64 bit.

My OS is Win 10 64bit. All updates except KB5004237 are installed.

I do have a couple of add-ons like Default Bookmark Folder and uBlock Origin and i even disabled them but still the issue stands with input tools delay.

I also refreshed my Firefox but that didn't help either.

Any solutions to this issue?

For 3 days now, I have not been able to view or use anything in my Facebook account. The page would drop the internet because it was too slow. I have tried various things from support and also received 1 from the community. it has not worked so I am going to switch to Microsoft Edge because I did not experience this problem with ME. I have used Firefox for years but the slowness is very annoying. I will try it again in the future. Thank you

Since the last Firefox update (92.0.1 64-bit), my bookmarks menu is slow to load, and also slow for navigating. It's slow to load the list when I open Bookmarks tab. And it's slow when I move my cursor up/down the bookmarks, it takes a bit for the highlighted bookmarks to catch up. It's very odd. I don't really have a lot of Bookmarks, I would guess ~500 total. Plus I am using plenty of RAM with Windows 7 on a SSD.

Bookmarks loading and accessing was lightning-fast prior to this last Firefox update. I have searched on this Forum for answers, plus Google.... no luck yet. I'm sure there is an answer. Does anyone have it?? Thanks for any help. Dave F.

PS - I LOVE Firefox. Many thanks to Mozilla for a terrific product! ;-)

Hi, since the last update, Firefox is taking a huge amount of memory and slowing everything else on my PC right down. Right now this support tab is the only webpage I have open, yet you can see in the screenshot there are 31 Firefox processes running, and over 1G of memory being taken. I've followed all the help threads and taken the steps in them - it's made no difference. Please can you help me find a way to tame Firefox. Also - I'm really not an IT expert at all so please can you tell me in very simple language :)

This past week I have noticed while using google workspace it seems as firefox will time out. This causes my gmail to show errors because it is not connected any longer. It also seems that when this does happen I can't do anything through the firefox browser such as search or browse the internet until I completely close and re-open firefox. I would like to know what I can do to resolve this issue. I have refreshed, uninstalled and reinstalled, and tried about:config settings that handle "timeouts". Please I need assistance asap with this issue.

It doesn't crash every time, but when it does, if I restart and try to save image/video/etc. again, it will usually keep crashing a string of times before it finally allows me to download without going "Not Responding" and at which point I have to force quit.

I've tried browsing other solutions but nothing seems to work or be applicable. I'm running Firefox 78.15.0esr (64-bit) on an El Capitan 2010 iMac.

Thanks for your help!

For quite a while I am using Firefox and had no issues, but recently, with new version , I am constantly facing two issues 1. the initial load of a page takes more then 30 seconds , sometimes 1 minute, but after the first page has been loaded if I open another page , it will be as usual 2. Completely random and without any sign of slowing down the OS - the OS freezes - nothing works at all and I have to restart it using the power button. ( and this happens when Firefox is open so I doubt Firefox)

version Firefox Browser 91.0.2 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu canonical - 1.0
