The FireFox browser (Version 93.0 (64-bit)) keeps having so much RAM usage. I am using the FireFox browser; session-after-session; and the FireFox browser is still having so much RAM usage. Stop FireFox from having so much RAM usage.

Start Firefox using Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode {web link}

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

MemTest LAST UPDATED : 12/04/2020 Could you please run a tool from http://memtest.org/ in order to check the integrity of your RAM?

You will need a thumb or disk drive to install it on.


Do you let Windows handle the page file or did you set a fixed size ? Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Performance -> Settings

If you use a fixed size for the page file then try the former and let Windows handle the page file. How to determine the appropriate page file size for 64-bit versions of Windows {web link}

I used Troubleshoot Mode, and this problem is still happening.

Start your Computer in safe mode with network support. Then start Firefox. Try Secure websites. Is the problem still there?
