First, this post is basically Congratulations for Firefox upon working almost flowlessly under this extreme heavy load without crashing. Saving/loading sessions works well. (which is unexpected but makes me _very_ happy :-)) Firefox exits properly without any exceptions, no matter how long it runs, or how many times the PC is sent to STR mode meanwhile.

Second, everything is fine, except RAM usage. No matter how many RAM is installed, Firefox takes up all of it after a few days of normal operation. I have recently upgraded my PC from 16 to 24 GB of RAM only for this sole reason to see if anything changes, but it did not produce any noticable change, except that it takes 5-7 days for Firefox to fill up all the RAM instead of the 3-4 days before. Disk space on C: drive was nullified by Firefox as the paging file went up to 50 GB.

I want to hunt down this thing. I have approx. 300 tabs, 2 addons, and Hardware Acceleration is disabled since otherwise Fox hangs several times a day (have to be killed from outside). Pics are attached. https://addons.mozilla.org/hu/firefox/addon/tree-tabs/ https://gitlab.com/kroppy/TreeTabs

I'd like to get suggestions where to start.

  1. Disabling or replacing the adblocker ?
  2. Inspecting memory usage on Process Manager (about:processes) and Task Manager (about:performance) pages ?
  3. Installing some external tools like Firemin ?

Please don't suggest neither safe mode nor disabling all addons, since that makes it impossible to reproduce this amount of load, which is the primary reason behind the symptom.

I PrtScr'ed Process Manager and Task Manager, see that RAM sizes per page are normal in Task Manager, but not in Process Manager (10 times more).

CPU usage is totally normal for this load, even when memory is in the heaven. See the TaskMan pic. (I suppose that's because of ad blocking)

Thanks for any ideas,

I love how the new tab page clearly states "Never fear losing a closed tab again.", and then when a window disappears it is followed by zero history to recover it. I have not restarted Firefox, let alone my computer since the last time the window was seen (about half an hour ago). It's not in my Alt+Tab tray hiding. I don't even remember closing the tab--though it's possible my keyboard double pressed when I was closing another window. (It's old and has a tendency to double hit keys). But now I have lost a window with at least 20 tabs open--mostly things i had yet to deal with and don't remember the URL to get back to it.

What use is my history and ability to reopen accidentally closed windows if everything just disappears from it within half an hour after the window could've been closed?

I would prefer to keep most of my browsing on Firefox, but I can't constitute that if I'm going to lose months worth of saved tabs randomly.

I have severe Asperger's, you're BADLY screwing my days up this way. It was pure horror to get them back, EACH TIME, as you (Firefox) figured to change it. DON'T MESS WITH MY BLOODY SETTINGS!!!!!!!!!! I can't work like this!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How do I fix it this time?

bold text My FF web pages are way too wide and I have to scroll all the time from side to side, to see the whole page, back and forth! Hate it! Not workable. Not only that, the menu texts (not the fonts on the page) are way too small, unless I reduce the whole page with the limited percentage size, and then none of it is readable to me. For a while 67% size helped but not even that works right and I am CONSTANTLY trying to adjust things so I can see them! It used to work great and now it is a CONSTANT BATTLE TO FUNCTION!

Firefox version 106.0.1 Windows 11pro. Youtube videos will not play, unless they are Live. Weird. Checked internet. Loads on phone, loads fine in Edge. Restarted FF, cleared cache and cookies, tried private browsing, started in troubleshoot mode with no addons-- even the ad video at the top won't play. What else am I missing? Why will the live videos play but not the others? That seems like a clue, but I've hit the end of my ideas. I was able to watch youtube two days ago, the only change (afaik) is a Firefox update this morning.

I've noticed over time that the History, or Library or whatever Mozilla wants to call the History, does not record all pages that are visited - and now it's getting worse and mixing pages up.

It's just been an annoyance until recently, but it has now caused me and my partner real issues, especially with his work.

Today it happened again but I have the time to actually come and tell someone about it in hopes that it actually gets fixed...

Here is what happened today, as happens all too frequently when I go to use the HISTORY function in Firefox accross multiple devices and installs over the past year or so;

I wanted to find a video I watched on youtube on the morning of the 7th November to show my friend, I know the title of it so I started typing it into the address bar to bring it up in the HISTORY but nothing appeared - here we go again I thought.

I might have thought maybe I misremembered the title if this had not happened multiple times already but I went through the motions anyway.

I know exactly when I watched it, so I opened the HISTORY and - because there is no ability to search for an actual date range for some daft reason - I started scrolling.

I got to the 7th, and there were videos I watched before, and videos I watched after, but not the video I was looking for - but there is a video I watched another day there in it's place.

So I opened youtube, went to my history there, scrolled back to the same videos, and sure enough, the video I am looking for is there and the video that is present in my HISTORY is not.

In the screen clippings attached, You can see that in my Firefox HISTORY and Youtube watch history match except for one thing, the 4 minute long "Contouring 101" video that I was originally looking for is present in my youtube watch history, but not on my Firefox HISTORY.

In it's place is a video titled "Life Changing, Tom Shares the Fight for his Life." - which is a 30 minute video I watched on the 31st of October - according to my youtube history and my memory - but not my Firefox HISTORY.

You can see the gap in my Firefox HISTORY where the "Contouring 101" video should be is just 5 minutes, makes sense it took me 5 mins to watch a 4:17 min video and then choose what to click on next, right?

I used to love the history function on browsers, years and years ago it was so good. Now it seems to just be an unmaintained afterthough with minimal functionality and no thought to accuracy.

is there any way we can go back to a accurate, concise and functional HISTORY? Or do I have to find another browser or third party solution?

Thanks for your time.

I'm using a new PC with Windows 11. I downloaded Firefox. When browsing in Firefox it has several times caused the whole screen to go black, and the only way to get back is to turn off and turn on again. Even then the Firefox page sometimes comes up again and I have to be quick to tap the X on top right to shut it down - or the whole screen goes black again! Then when I restart Firefox it re-loads the page, so I have to quickly exit before it happens again. So this morning when it happened I just did a full restart of the PC. Then I transferred all my tabs and other info to Edge, and will use that from now on.

What is new that is causing Firefox to do this?

I imagine I could also use Chrome, haven't tried that yet.

I have removed any private information and kept the balance for everyone review and comments and left dead Mozilla addresses, which is not private or personal.

Start paste ________ Re: Your case, 00119811: Contacting anyone

20 Oct 2022 13:24NZST (20 minutes ago)

to Mozilla I note this total lack of focus on the users continues, with more forced unwanted "functionality", forced start menu shortcuts and no fixes of the reported previous issues etc., some of which can be "fixed" via a not recommend code, patch or "playing" in the config settings.

I believe most of this is driven by a race for dollars before totally pissing off the bulk of the users and will end up with much less dollars.

Urgently, regain your focus on the users themselves, provide settings in the main window that allow the users to manage nearly all settings, allow them to add or remove extra functionality, i.e. list all tabs, Firefox mode, backspace issues, search positioning etc etc. remove "Personalize new tab" does not need to be there at all, include in settings.

Further, the issue reporting requirements and process are still onerous and Mozilla's/Firefox shutting down topics on the community pages is a "We know best" approach which highlights this complete lack of user focus.

I suggest: -A new group of coders that focus on the users first and foremost, while not all of their recommendation may be implemented,they should have some priority -An open and honest discussion amongst all stakeholders on each issue as and when required -A commitment to rollback all of the unnecessary "fixes" that pissed off some of the user groups that complained, remember it must have really pissed them off to start to complain and most will be silent regardless. -and any other items that revert Mozilla and Firefox back to its original drivers

Actioning all of the above, will longer-term, retain users, drive recommendations and gain new users and will have a material impact, again as per my last email attached and as I predicted, the current user share is diminishing and will continue to do so unless significant change in methodology and focus is rolled out ASAP.

Sent late Sept 2021 Hi Tom, and team,

Somewhat ironically, the "new features" mostly include unfriendly removal of normal configuration as has been standard across all browsers since year dot as well as unneeded overheads and other.

Continuing the irony, my apparently unified login, previously known as my Mozilla login, now my Firefox login is invalid for ideas.Mozilla.org for which I apparently need a separate one, reporting this as a bug or as a requested feature update I need another separate one.

The whole process of reporting and communicating to the Dev team directly (via support or other), the navigation to such, the escalating of such is horrendous. You may end up with multiple reports and somewhat incomplete reports form average users, however asking users to have all of these extra log-ins, to read the bug treatise, to navigate through this laborious - totally the reverse of a streamlined, thought-out process is symptomatic of the lack of focus on user feedback and I believe, the users themselves.

I understand during a reconfiguration there may be teething troubles, however this is not the case, it has been this way for a long time and continues to get more distant from a user friendly experience.

If you read between the lines above, I will not be gong through to deas.mozilla.org via 2 log-in's, to go to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/file-bug-report-or-feature-request-mozilla to try to select the correct repository and having read the clumsy tome, report a "fix" needed for something that should never of been rolled-out, to go though to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=Firefox (or other) to log-in again and still be no closer to any kind-of direct, meaningful and constructive solution when I can "hack" the about:config and these issues IMO have been reported via https://support.mozilla.org on more than one occasion.

Yours sincerely Phil B

Thank you for being a Firefox user! We're sorry to hear that you're frustrated with some of the new features added in the recent refresh.

Sent late Sept 2021 Please forward to Dev management. There is no link between the support volunteers and Mozilla, there is no way to contact Mozilla, there is no way to ask for a simple roll-back of a "new" unwanted feature i.e. backspace not working, search tab/bar/screen position. Firefox is losing it's way and ignoring and not appearing to want any constructive feedback and no way to monitor or act on it. People are leaving. _____ end paste.
