Is there literally no way to control firefox's memory usage? I have tried a lot of things and none of them work

Hello, I have been a diehard Firefox user since it was still in Beta. I have been using computers personally since 1994 and professionally since 2004, doing Windows and Linux systems administration. I can and will do whatever (within limits) you need me to do to troubleshoot and resolve this issue, which is otherwise going to cause me to abandon this otherwise excellent browser, perhaps forever. The browser.cache.disk.capacity seems to work, but browser.cache.memory.capacity does not.

Why does firefox not respect the assigned values for browser memory cache (browser.cache.memory.capacity)? Is there anything I can do to limit the memory and processor usage of Firefox and its child processes? Is extension CPU/memory usage constrained by the application values? Is there a way to determine and/or limit the resource usage of extensions?

I have included a number of screenshots documenting its behavior and generated an about:memory report during "normal use". After configuring a number of system variables, I then attempted to determine its resource usage under heavy load.

Open the browser with a couple 2, 3 tabs: ~1GB memory usage Use the browser as "normal" (dozens tabs): ~2GB memory usage Open 100+ tabs from history: The CPU and memory resource usage increases until it consumes all available system resources despite configured values. After killing and restarting the process, the tabs have invisible titles in the extension and browser, and must be closed using Ctrl+W until only a few remain after which the browser can be used normally and again consumes ~1GB.

While I understand "just don't open so many tabs", under some circumstances such as poorly written websites, bugs, etc, even single sites may attempt to claim excessive resources. I sometimes run VMs and such on this machine and in order to retain a responsive system, cannot have applications consuming all of the available resources. I have found one proposed solution that uses an external application, is this the only way?

I am open to allowing Firefox to utilize more of the SSD storage (the 1GB limit was imposed for testing) and would be fine with increased slowness due to disk cache or refetching internetworked resources. However, none of the settings I have changed or attempts I have made appear to be able to limit the memory usage in any way. Additional included screenshots are linked above instead of as attachments due to number. I can share or generate additional reports to assist in troubleshooting.

Thank you! JackD

After updating to v120 my Firefox started behaving strangely. With v119 I was able to fire up my Linux and Firefox and had immediate access to both Gmail and Calendar. Now I am requested to sign in every time, are offered a Shareable Calendar (for which I have no use) and get a notification in my cell phone reporting a new login. It would appear that the problem lies in syncing as WhatsApp Web is also requesting scanning its QR code every time too. This is most annoying. No settings were changed after the update. As a temporary solution I grabbed a v119 tar.gz from my wife's laptop and installed it in mine. Now all is behaving normally as before. Am I doing something wrong? Will appreciate any help you can provide.

I am using Firefox version 119.0.1 (64-bit) on Ubuntu 22.04. Using this version of Firefox, as well as previous versions for the last few months, I am having a persistent error when using Google Advanced Search. I enter search criteria into the field “Find pages with … all these words” and successfully progress through a chain of web pages. Previously I was able to backtrack to the previously mentioned field and find my search criteria, then edit the text, and carry out a modified search. For many months this field has been blank when returning to it. So it is now necessary to re-enter all text for a new search. This is very frustrating. I have experienced this problem on the three computers that I regularly use.

I have found that when I use the Google Chrome browser the problem goes away and searches progress normally. I would much prefer to use Firefox as my browser as I find its bookmark system superior. The truth is that if this problem with Firefox can’t be fixed soon I will be forced to migrate to Chrome. Can you please help me resolve this Firefox problem?

Spotify webplayer on Firefox is unuseable after updating to latest version

Majority of the songs do not play and I'm given with a pop-up, "Spotify can't play this right now. If you have the file on your computer you can import it."

I will play a song from a playlist and is given that pop-up, it will continue skipping to the next song until it plays, but only for 9-10 seconds until the song mutes, to specify, the dot (when hovered on the progress bar) will still move, indicating that "it's playing".

Some clarifications: 1. I use Spotify Desktop app (windows), Spotify App (android), and Spotify Webplayer on Chrome and Firefox. Everything works just as fine on all of these, except for Spotify Webplayer on Firefox. 2. Skipping to a later timestamp does not unmute the song. 2. I have Spotify Premium 3. I have no VPN 4. I am running Firefox with an ad blocker 5. I am running Chrome with an ad blocker (same ad blocker in Fifefox) 6. I am running Firefox to the latest version (Firefox 119.0.1 (20231106151204))

What I've done so far: 1. Cleared caches and data. 2. Updated my Windows to the latest update available - Win10 v.22H2 3. Signed-out of Spotify for all my devices, then logging-in first on Spotify Desktop (this automatically redirects to Firefox webplayer) 4. Ran Firefox on "Troubleshoot Mode" 5. Un-checked and re-checked "Play DRM content" setting. 6. Disabled and re-enabled the plug-in "Widevine Content Decryption Module by Google Inc". (this plug-in is last udpated on November 17, 4.10.2710.0

I'm including this link from Spotify's Community page.. where two other users, who commented it is only with Firefox (webplayer), are experiencing the same problem as I am. https://community.spotify.com/t5/Desktop-Windows/Spotify-can-t-play-this-right-now-If-you-have-the-file-on-your/m-p/5679914#M123192

For the past few days, when I try to log on to PlayStation on Firefox, the sign-in page sits on a loading swirl after inputting email. There's a clear memory leak shown on Task Manager. The menu bar's right-click doesn't draw properly. FF can't be closed and needs to be terminated. The only extension I have is uBlock Origin disabled for this site.

This website works on Edge.

Attached is the broken menu from right-clicking the menu bar.

I'm having an issue with Fidelity Investments website logging me off after 5-10 minutes of inactivity. Before Fidelity's website redesign, I could go at least 30 minutes or more without having to login again. It seems now I have to login constantly.

I have contacted Fidelity, but the said it was a Firefox issue, however, I cannot find any information about this issue (or I don't know where to look).

How do I extend the time before needing to login again? Thoughts on if is this even a Firefox issue or is it Fidelity's website?

Thank you!

I was having trouble with Firefox freezing and needed to close it with Task Manager and reopen it whenever this happened. On one of these restarts, only a few of my windows opened up with the new session. All of the other open windows vanished. They're not in my history or my recently closed windows at all. There are three specific windows of the lost windows that had data I was actively using and don't want to lose. The URLs would be enough. I was also using the other windows, but I can re-find that information easily enough.

For the past few days, Firefox has been freezing up. By playing around with it, I've found that it's still functioning, but it ceases to update visually. I'm not having the same issues with any other program on my PC, I don't see the icon to update Firefox, and I've restarted my PC a few times along the way.

When this happens, it's not just website contents that freeze, but Firefox's UI as well. Hovering a tab doesn't highlight it. Clicking the hamburger doesn't appear to open the menu. Etc...

If I have a video playing when this happens, I will continue to hear it, but the frame the video is on stays in place.

If I click on another open tab, it will still show me the tab it visually froze on, but if I end Firefox with Windows Task Manager & reopen it, the session saves the tab switch, so it's still taking mouse inputs. I've been able to do similar with keyboard inputs by clicking on the address bar and entering a new URL. I don't see anything as I type it, but after using Task Manager to close and reopen Firefox, the site I entered is there.

I can switch between open Firefox windows when this happens without issue, even on the same monitor, and if I pull up something else in front of Firefox and then switch to Firefox it will still display what was last visible in that Firefox window while the bug is occurring.

I have tried disabling add-ons, and actually found that disabling some of them made it happen *more* frequently, not less. Privacy Badger, Auto Tab Discard, & Ad Nauseum specifically. Switching from Ad Nauseum to AdBlock Plus or uBlock Origin neither increases nor decreases the frequency. My other add-ons, like Duplicate Tabs Closer, haven't had any effects on frequency that I can see. With all of my Add-ons disabled, Task Manager shows double the number of Firefox processes.

I tried to clear my history, but I can only select my last 1 hour of history, as clicking on the dropdown box to select another duration will cause the problem to occur & I can't see the other options in the box to select a longer option. The dropdown to select a topic for this question has the same issue.

These are some actions that risk causing the bug to start, but aren't 100% reproducible, and the list is not exhaustive:

  • Trying to click & drag to pull a tab into becoming its own window or to move the tab into another window. (Firefox does not save this movement if it causes the bug, so closing and reopening it will keep the tab in the window it was already in.) This seems to work fine for some sites, but specifically tends to break if it's a YouTube tab.
  • Mid-clicking to open a link in a new tab, if done on several links in a row
  • Clicking on a UI element, like the hamburger button
  • Right clicking on an image and selecting "copy"
  • Right clicking within Firefox
  • Opening Firefox

I have not seen the bug occur at any time that I was not actively providing some input to the Firefox program.

Hello,

I have a problem retrieving my favorites/bookmarks. I changed computers (all of them, even the hard drives).

I would like to recover my favorites/bookmarks but cannot do so because I am asked to look for them in folders that I no longer have, because they are on the old computer.

Does Firefox not save any information about my favorites/bookmarks? Have I lost them all? Do I have to redo my whole life?

We have 2 desktop computers, both on the same wifi internet wireless network. On 1 we can ad the Ublock Origin extension no problem. But except for only 2 times, the other computer says installation aborted because add-on appears to be corrupt. Like I said, we have gotten it to load twice but both times it disappeared and now it won’t load. I’m not sure how it can be a connectivity issue, since they both access the internet from the same source. Is it that the problem system has Window 11 and the other 10? Why would it install twice and then disappear? Note that as a test I have uninstalled Ublock and then reinstalled it no problem on the Windows 10 machine. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I need help with Mozilla Firefox 119.0.1 (64-bit) version which is almost not working internally without Internet link. When I try to open local internal site Mozilla Firefox waits to open https://www.bootstrapcdn.com/ Internet location which is unavailable because we are using the browser in isolated network and it is waiting for this site for more than 15 minutes before it opens the local site.

This is not the way we are expecting the browser to work so the question is can we disable this requests in Mozilla Firefox that we were not aware of and that are not asked from out side?

Thank you!

I'm using last release Firefox in a fresh install of Debian 12 with KDE. Trying to personalize colors and get a coherent style, I've installed Firefox Color and it worked fine, except for a few GUI elements.

I solved the scrollbars part with this answer:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1419353

Is there a similar setting for the menus? I mean in Firefox's menu bar or the ones popping over the page. The dropdown of the burguer menu and the bookmarks toolbar do get styled (I will include images showing the difference).

I'm having an issue that has been going on for some time now and it finally has me at wits end. My Account sync keeps disconnecting where I have to go through the sign in process again and again. I have searched multiple times for this issue and have seen that others have suffered from the same issue with no clear solution to the problem. I have now tried with several Firefox desktop versions including my preferred browser being Firefox Unbranded, and every single one disconnects me several times daily.

Does anyone have a solution to this issue?
