When Facebook updated their system a few months ago, running it on firefox with windows 10 on a pc crashes mozilla. It happens if you are logged into FB for some length of time (say an hour). I have no extensions operating just plain firefox. I turned on task manager inside firefox to watch what happened over time along with windows task manager. Within a half hour, FB is using high energy impact and just about all available memory in the system and filled the cache as well. Eventually it just freezes firefox and I have to kill the program go back and clear the cache and often do a complete refresh of firefox

Today my mouse sporadically stops scrolling and I have to click and hold the slider on the right to scroll to the bottom of the page. First time something like this ever happened. My other browser scrolls fine. Also the wait time for the browser to initially open usually takes around 20 seconds or so. Not to happy right now. Latest windows on PC.

It's been a while since I noticed Firefox video is laggy on every website. I thought it was about some driver problem but everything else seemed to work well. I downloaded Chrome and it didn't have any problem running any video.

I tried clearing Firefox's cache and I tried to "refresh Firefox" on about::config, but it didn't work. I don't have any missing system updates, I'm running Firefox 84.0.2-1.fc33 on Fedora Workstation 33.

I don't like using Chrome so your help will be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Pretty much title.

Since about two weeks when I open firefox the browser freezes every few minutes for 10-15 seconds. Launching firefox in Safe Mode or disabling all extensions didn't help. When I open Task Manager during freezes it shows that Firefox is "Not responding" and when I open sub-tasks it's usually one or two causing the problem. When I close those either firefox closes completely or youtube or reddit crashes, leading me to believe it's something with those sites? Refreshing or reinstalling firefox hasn't helped. I'm on Windows 10 (all updates installed) and Firefox 84.0.1 (x64) as of the time writing this.

I hope someone can help and suggest something. I would hate to switch to another browser, but the problem has become unbearable.

Firefox (84.0.2 x64) has recently become a memory hog to the point where my system (W7) slows to a point where it is unusable. I do not wish to spend an entire day (or more) troubleshooting in the hope that I can make go away a problem that didn't exist 1 month ago do so how can I roll back to an earlier release (say the one running in december last year) which did not have any of these problems?

I attach two screen prints from a laptop (W7 12GBRam) running one instance of firefox with maybe 20 open tabs Windows Task Mgr which shows Firefox with 9 processes using around 5GB with one process using 2GB Firefox task mgr which shows 25 tabs using a total of around 0.5GB

Clearly the info in the firefox taskmgr is rubbish - or rather not reporting the same thing!

this problem only happenas after first youtube video. only the first youtube video is fine. there's no freezing, lag, latency on the first video.

If I bring up a safari browser, the exact same URL loads fine. I didn't change any firefox configuration settings. Any ideas?

After upgrading to FF 84, my previous sessions are no longer saved and restored unless I restart in Safe Mode.

- I have Restore previous session checked in Preferences.

- I have opened new windows and tabs and one by one disabled and restored every add-on that I have had enabled and quit and restarted each time, until every single add-on has been disabled, and still the previous sessions are not saved and restored.

- I have looked in the sessionstore-backups folder with each restart, and there is never any file for the previous sessions in it.

- I have cleared all my cache before quitting and restarting.

- Again, even when there are absolutely no add-ons enabled, the previous session is not saved and not restored.

- Again, only when I restart in Safe Mode is the previous session saved and restored.

What is the solution?

Firefox seems to be a very high user of disc resources. I can hear the drive it's installed on being continuously accessed, and can see in Task Manager it's almost always using the most disc resources of any process. Even with one or a few tabs open, when Firefox isn't being actively used.

Can anyone tell me what is going on, and most importantly if there is a way to reduce the endless disc access. thx,

My wife called me in this afternoon when big red error message popped up "saying" it is a red alert and the web page used Apple's logo on it, said the old 2011 iMac, OS 10.10.5 Yosemite, is "blocked" and has a virus. It had an 877 phone number to call but we failed to write it down. She did nothing after that. When I saw that I pressed the red window page kill button, upper left. Got the rotating rainbow ball. . . computer working overtime. Next, Command-W to kill the webpage, nada. Finally, pressed the hardware ON/OFF button behind left side of screen. On SAFE restart I opened my account not hers and found Firefox had thin, white, flashing lines across the tab bar area(full width) and tabs were flashing individually. Every time you open a tab, this happens or possibly when it is accessing. So, I upgraded Firefox, leaving the OLD version intact. Upgrade I NOW notice is the 64 bit version.

Is there a fix out there? or, is this thing "infected" with the CCP virus or something? Fix for it?

I will shut down and re-open the old version and see if it still happens and post an update here.

After I updated to the newest Firefox on dec. 16, 2020, my computer began to operate at a terribly slow pace. Not just Firefox, everything. I worked with Apple senior advisors and their engineers to try to isolate what could be wrong. In my Mac activity monitor, the kernel_task was using over 500% of the CPU, even with no browser or application open. After 2 or 3 weeks of checking everything, Apple told me it was Firefox that was causing the slowness. I threw Firefox in the trash but nothing improved. I realized that throwing just the application in the trash did not eliminate all of Firefox, so I reinstalled it and then tried to remove anything related to Firefox from my computer. I’m not sure if I got everything, but the situation stayed the same. I reinstalled Firefox and went through all the solutions that I found on these pages. Nothing has helped. My cpu still shows amazingly high activity even when nothing is open. I cannot figure out what to do and my computer is working so slowly it is essentially useless to me. Has anyone else had this issue? Any suggestions?

I've looked at other questions/answers about this issue. I've emptied cache, history, but no change. Haven't tried in safe mode becuz I've just not got the patience to work through this problem.

Sometimes the vids work fine, sometimes eventually they load, sometimes not at all. And now Adobe Flash is finished...is some sort of replacement needed? My secondary browser is Vivaldi, and the vids open fine there.

FF 84.0.2, Mac 10.15.7

thanks very much.
