Why is Firefox using so much memory for GPU processes?

Hi there, I have noticed that my Win11 Asus laptop is always short on RAM (16GB available), with Firefox taking up a significant amount even with only a few tabs open.

As you can see by the attached image, when I go to 'about:processes' it shows that GPU processes alone are taking up nearly 1GB of memory, with the only tab running being the 'about' page. I only have 6 extensions (uBlock Origin, Zotero, Containers etc) none of which are meant to be RAM intensive.

What are these GPU processes that are running, and how can I reduce the memory used by them?

Thank you.

Note that it's about memory of your GPU chip, not about RAM. Devs are working on this under bug 1624261.

You can go to about:memory and click Minimize memory usage.

Χρήσιμο;
