Why does Firefox change the power plan to balanced on start up?

Posted

I have verified that windows 10 is in High Power and when I start Firefox it switches to Balanced. (Bad Firefox!)

I have verified that windows 10 is in High Power and when I start Firefox it switches to Balanced. (Bad Firefox!)

Chosen solution

I found it! The piece of 'System Mechanic', called Powersense, will change power settings on its own recomendations of 'High' CPU usage. I went in and adjusted, (read 'shut off',) function and problem disappeared. Good Firefox!

Firefox doesn't control that options that is controlled by the O/S power management. Firefox is a browser not a Control Panel program.

Agree 100%, but it is still happening. I've tried clean boot. I've scanned for malware. I just got the update to "63". When I start Firefox It changes my power plan to balanced.

That doesn't happen to mine and it's updated to 63x64bit firefox. Something isn't right here the browser has no control of the power management that is coming from the O/S most likely. I check with mine but don't recall it showing anything that it can control power management. Is this a laptop or desktop?

Set the power options to where you want them. Then;

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} by holding down the <Shift> (Mac=Options) key, and then starting Firefox.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

Firefox in SAFE mode. No Change in behavior. start FF, PP > BAL. Stop FF, PP > HP. All else is normal.

Something does add up here the Browser doesn't have control of the power management only the O/S can do that and I have a Desktop as well and laptop and have no power management issue. It's starting to sound like your browser is corrupted here.
