what is it so hard to disable updates and stop your releases and keep my profile and addons. I had enough of your browser as with every update more things go wrong, missing or disabled. I just want to use the internet with the old addons I donw want any of your new features crap. With 8GB or ram your last browser fails to stop freezing my computer with your ram usage and process limit. I use basically the same addons and scripts as with FIrefox 52 and everything fails to work now. I hope someone can make a usable browser that does the simple things that I want and not have to deal with this again.

I agree with disliking the current Firefox. I stopped updating and am still using v54. So far no real problems.

As to your language, this is a public forum. If you would like some help, control yourself and ask questions.


The people who answer questions here, for the most part, are other users volunteering their time (like me), not Mozilla employees or Firefox developers.

If you need to file a bug report or feature request for Firefox and other Mozilla products, see File a bug report or feature request for Mozilla products for details.

Hi zh0so, 8GB of RAM is definitely not normal. Could you try the solutions in the following article, and see if any of them help: Firefox uses too much memory or CPU resources - How to fix

One thing I would recommend is to refresh Firefox. This will purge a lot of your Firefox files, while retaining most of your personal data. For instructions, check out the following article: Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings

Also, could you please read Mozilla Support rules and guidelines? I've had to edit out the profanity in your earlier posts, thanks.
