Hello, i've just updated my firefox developer edition from 78.0b9 to 79.0b1 (64-Bit) Now a HTML5 Game in the first tab freezes when i'm opening a website (google or mozilla or any other) in a second tab. Occures with the HTML5 Versions of Shakes&Fidget and Forge of Empires, which i play. No problem with latest version of the normal Firefox (77.0.1 64-Bit) and the previous dev edition 78.0b9 64-Bit. My OS is Windows 10 Pro Version 2004 Build 19041.329

Thanks in advance, Nicole

I have tried to Clear Cookies and Site Data repeatedly in Standard, Strict and Custom modes with no success and repeated that test when trying to uncheck Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. Incidentally this problem began occurring when Firefox offered me the opportunity to use DNS Over HTTPS. I Like using DNS over HTTPS although it may very well be that hackers and info miners (Phishing) do Not like this new firefox setting and have adjusted their cookies into Permanent SOLs. Google hires hackers for many things. How can you help me you ask? Please repair the problem.

I'm using Firefox Beta on a slow laptop in Linux -so, manually changing videos to 360p from the cog works to make them play smoothly. The facebook SD Only setting in https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=videos doesn't really work -only in a few videos. If anyone knows of an extension that handles this on latest Firefox Beta let me know. Thank you.

JIT/GC/Cycle Collection hanging periodically

After my browser being open for a while, usually a few hours, Firefox starts to get some major hanging in some tabs; I can have two windows open, one with a youtube video playing and another with like reddit or something else, and when browsing reddit, I get major hanging when interacting for around 7 seconds.

I recorded a couple performance profiles to see what's causing it, and it seems to consistently be a very long JIT or GC call, also labelled as "Cycle Collection" in the waterfall view.

I saved the profiles and I can upload them, but I'm not sure if they come with any private info so I'm reticent to add it to this thread.

I've watched the Task Manager (the Firefox one and the Windows one) while this is happening and memory usage in the Windows task manager seems to rise quickly over a few seconds then suddenly drop back down. I'm not sure if that's relevant. In the Firefox Task Manager I didn't see anything particularly salient other than energy usage spiking up just after the hanging is over.

This doesn't only seem to happen on Windows because it also happens on my Linux laptop occasionally as well, in a very similar manner. I didn't collect any evidence on Linux yet.

This has been happening for quite a while now, on multiple versions of Firefox in a row. I'm using 79.0b3 Developer Edition right now on my Windows machine.

Closing and reopening Firefox usually causes things to clear themselves out and I don't get such long hanging for a while.

I would expect JIT and GC to happen in much smaller chunks to avoid hanging, it's strange that it takes that long for one call.

When I try to checkout on a site using Shopify, the credit card fields are unusable. The form fields turn into animations, almost like an animated GIF and will not stop. It is difficult to describe what is going on. Here's what it looks like:https://i.imgur.com/mTJfDeD.mp4. I don't know how else to illustrate the issue. This has been going on for the past several versions of Firefox. I'm currently using 79.0b3 (64-bit) on a Mac.

This is my rig: www.bit.do/kanishkpc and I use the latest Firefox Beta (always updated)

I have been using Firefox without the kind of memory usage that I am seeing recently. With ~10/15 tabs open, my PC would never be troubled. The RAM usage wouldn't be at 90% but in the past few days (possibly because of a beta update?) I get 50% RAM usage (8GB) with 15 tabs. Yesterday concurrently loaded ~6 YouTube tabs caused a 90% usage from the app and I had to close it.

The RAM usage might seem normal but Firefox actually never uses that much RAM - or didn't earlier at least.

I used MalwareBytes a few days ago to do a malware scan and it found my PC clean. If I did have malware (I had a bit of scare earlier), how would I detect it?

I need help in installing a caret browsing add-on for my Android cell. I want to insert a cursor on any webpage and use my left/right arrows to move through the text so I can track where I am reading. I can do this on my laptop but not my Android cell. I have tried Edge and Chrome but the add-on is not available for Android. Any solution would be greatly appreciated, even if I need a different browser. Thanks in advance.
