Your system has run out of application memory

On a MacBook Air with MacOS Monterey 12.1, I use Firefox 96.0.2 and Thunderbird 91.5.0. I bought this MacBook in October 2021, with 16 GB of unified RAM and 1 TB of main memory, of which 380 GB are available. Annoyingly, I get the message "Your system has run out of application memory." regularly, seriously interrupting my work, because I have to force quit Firefox and/or Thunderbird. This even happens about a day after restart.

In a typical instance, memory usage is: DeepL 67.7 MB Firefox 2.03 GB Preview 334.1 MB Thunderbird 907.4 MB Finder 75.0 MB

The answers I see on Mozilla Support do not solve my problem. In ~/Library/Application\ Support/Firefox/Profiles/aurrzm6j.default and in ~/Library/Caches/Firefox/Profiles/aurrzm6j.default, I see nothing whose name relates to Firefox.

After many and long telephone sessions with Apple Support, they conclude that my hardware, in particular the RAM module, is perfectly fine and the problem lies with lacking adaptation of the Mozilla software to the system I use.

My questions to Mozilla: Is this a known problem? Does it occur with other users as well? What is Mozilla's stand on Apple's assessment?

Web Page Rendered Incompletely on Firefox

I subscribe to a newsletter published by the International Living Future Institute at www2.living-future.org Every so often (say, once a month) I receive the newsletter through my Comcast email (which I have opened up in Firefox). The email displays only the first of multiple (8, for example) pieces of graphic and textual content. The remaining 7 (for example) pieces are simply blank boxes. The email also contains this statement at the top: "Email not displaying correctly? View it in your browser." The latter statement is linked to a page on their site; for example, today's (1/24/2022) email links to: https://www2.living-future.org/webmail/464132/545721684/7dba785a8c809f875afbfe5e3d94f7b4d88f1cccf3e71980921b90a4c1419be8

The foregoing link does not display correctly in Firefox. When I copy the link to my Safari browser, it does display correctly (with all of the boxes of content properly populated). I have experienced this problem for at least a year, and have not encountered such problems with any other site. Your help would be most appreciated. Thank you, Bill Meessen

I am on an iMac running High Sierra 10.13.6. For the last couple months whenever I try to close Firefox it either crashes or I have to force quit Firefox to make it quit. But on restart tabs have been restored, or I have been able to bring them back using "restore tabs".

Two days ago my wife was using my computer (I was out of town) and when she finished she tried to turn off the computer. She got a message that Firefox was not closing so the computer could not shut down, then a minute later (without her doing anything) the computer did shut down.

I got home todaty and started the computer. Opened Firefox and found all of my saved/open tabs (~25) were gone. No "restore tabs" option available.

Is there any way I can locate and restore the missing tabs? I've looked through some posts in Support, but all of the crash issues I found were of a different type. And it would also be really nice if I can get Firefox to close normally again. Are there any plugins that commonly cause this kind of problem?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi all, for the past two days or so my Firefox has been crashing very often. It seems to have started out of nowhere as I did not change any settings.

I have tried:

Refreshing Firefox Uninstalling and reinstalling Disabling and removing all extensions Running in troubleshoot mode Disabling themes

Yet it still crashes - usually when switching tabs, but it often crashes on it's own while I'm not even doing anything.

Any help would be fantastic

Hi there! For the past 3 days, my browser has started to show in some websites a weird red window (kinda reminds me of the youtube logo with inverted colors!). I've already tried 4 antiviruses, 3 antimalware, and I've tried reinstalling the browser cleanly but the issue keeps happening. The other browsers (Chrome, Opera, Edge) are working just fine. The issue happens only on some websites and not at all of them. What should I do now? Thank you!

I am having issues with opening link for external applications. The application can be What'sApp or Zoom or Slack and when trying to open an external app I get a windows that ask for me to select the application to open the link.. When doing this the only option have I have is System Handler and Choose Application.. Neither option is helpful.. This did not happen with firefox packaged with .deb .. I am assuming that this deal with snap sandbox security.. I later read an article

I did a little reading and came across a link https://ubuntu.com/blog/how-to-snap-introducing-classic-confinement

Which instructed on how to create a snap with --classic confinement.. I am not sure if this will resolve the issue that I am having .. But I didn't find that I could install firefox snap with the --classic option.. I am not that familiar with snaps so I could be completely off but wanted to know if someone could look into it..

I would like to add an image but it doesn't seem like firefox will allow me to on this page. (Browse is not opening a window) Also copy and paste didn't work

Hi, Firefox brings my computer to halt after a few minutes of usage. The only thing I did after opening the browser is go to support page and the FirefoxCP WebExtensions process memory usage went over 20 GB of memory.

I have tried restarting my MacBook a few times as well as restarting firefox, but nothing has helped. I’ve the latest version of FireFox installed, and using a MacBook Pro with 16GB of memory.

I haven't made any changes nor added anything new lately. I think it may have started after the last update.

Thank you for your time and support!

I used to create desktop shortcuts to websites by dragging the padlock thumbnail to the left of the URL to the desktop. (see first image)

Now it does not create a shortcut but instead creates a file on the desktop with a .URL extension.(see 2nd image) Double clicking on the file will take me to the website, but as a file and not a shortcut, I cannot modify the name displayed or change the icon displayed.

Am I looking at something new in version 96 or have I inadvertantly changed something in the settings?
