I am having a significant issue with firefox draining my battery. I used chrome up until the new year and then switched over to firefox from chrome. Overall I love firefox so much more. The format is way more pleasing. I love how it easily signs me back into everything, BUT IT DRAINS MY COMPUTER SO MUCH. Like i used to have an 8hour + battery span my laptop neverrr died. Now I get through MAX 2 hours of full use before needing to charge, and maybe 4 hours just having it at school but not using it.

I thought my dell suddenly started crashing, ran all these tests, and then I realized the only change was that I had started using Firefox... So sad I think I am going to have to leave it.

I read a lot of articles and did everything suggested. my graphics is webreader , i turned on all the suggested features, i have 2 extensions , the only thing I could maybe think of was that I use an animated theme so maybe that was killing the battery, but like if I can't use my theme than whats the point.

Windows 10 Pro v 22H2 Firefox 121.0.1 (64-bit)

I have tried preventing Firefox from autostarting with Windows start up by examining these potential program starting locations:

Firefox-Settings-General: "Open Firefox automatically when your computer starts up": Option not available about:config - toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart - set to "false" No listing for Mozilla or Firefox in Windows 10 "Startup Apps" settings page No listing for Mozilla or Firefox in Windows 10 msconfig.exe/System Configuration-Startup No listing for Firefox in Windows 10 Task Scheduler No Firefox program in Windows 10 - %appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup folder All Firefox extensions (2) are disabled

Where else should I be looking? Thank you

I feel like I've been seeing people online complaining about this for a couple of years now, and it's shocking to me that I still couldn't find a solution in a thorough google search. Has anyone found a fix for the mandatory restart Firefox now pushes whenever there's an update available? Basically, out of nowhere, the program will refuse to open any new tabs or load any pages, instead giving the error message in the image. A restart is forced, and all private tabs are lost without warning. This is completely unacceptable browser behavior. As far as I know, there is no setting or about:config option that will fix this. Has anyone found a work-around?

I've been a loyal Firefox user for a couple of decades at this point, but this nonsense has me seriously considering switching to something else. Thanks for any help anyone can offer.
