Hi

I'm an Computer Vision engineer and I migrated from Chrome recently.

The problem is, when I train a neural network and GPU utilization goes beyond 90% Firefox becomes unusable and sometime freeze my whole PC entirely.

I'm not even talking about YouTube or video sites, just new tab is enough to cause problem.

This never happen in Chrome and I'm forced to keep using it every time I need to use GPU.

Is there any tip for this?

For past week or so, pages very, very slow to load. I often must close and open browser, as pages become unresponsive. I have NEVER had this problem; have always been able to open these multiple tabs and navigate between them with no problem at all over past year! I have made zero changes to add-ons or software in past 2 months. The ONLY change has been the FireFox update. I am now being forced to use another browser. Please let me know how I can reverse the update and go back to an older, stable, usable version of FireFox

Here is the crash info. Recently, usually when scrolling through sites, my tabs would crash unexpectedly. This is a brand-new laptop that I have had for a little over a week now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Crash Reason: EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION_READ

I have recently been suffering an issue where the browser becomes unresponsive and consumes massive amounts of hardware resources especially memory, in one case was using over 60 gigabytes of combined physical and virtual memory.

I have tried refreshing with Firefox Refresh, reinstalling and the problem still persists.

I believe it is either one of the addons Tree Style Tabs, but I don't know how to accurately diagnose this though, as sometimes I am able to get to the about:addons and disable one or the other but the problem doesn't go away and in some cases escalates to freezing the whole process.

When the application does this, the currently selected pages still work say I have one open of the ABC news website, I can still scroll up and down, but if I click a link to another article or something, nothing happens, same applies if I try to do anything with the address bar, the history and suggestions pop up but the browser doesn't do anything even after I hit enter.

I'd like to try and find out what the program is doing during this state of unresponsiveness, I left it for a couple of hours last week to see if it could work itself out, turns out it couldn't and the system ran out of Ram and fell over. I'd like to know how to diagnose it, know what it's doing, what it's hung up on and if it's related to an addon, tell the creator about it.

I apologise if this is not the correct way to go about this, I have just run out of patience trying to fix this myself.

I'm using Firefox v 83.0 on Manjaro (Gnome) Linux. YouTube videos in theater/full-screen mode lag if resolution is higher than 360p and cause the CPU usage to burst. This happens for large web pages as well: when I scroll the page, text overlaps and everything is terribly slow. I've checked and this seems to be a Firefox related problem; videos play smoothly both on VLC and Chromium. I've tried all official troubleshooting suggestions: changing to default theme, refreshing Firefox, starting in safe-mode, disabling extensions, disabling hardware acceleration and so on, with no success. I've never had any problems with Firefox for Linux before and I wonder what could be the cause.

I attached screenshots for comparison of CPU usage for the same video playing in theater mode in Firefox and Chromium.

I continually have a yellow bar across the top of the page when I open Facebook on Firefox.

It says "A web page is slowing down your browser. What would you like to do?" then there are 2 buttons and a X next to that question.


My request is for Firefox to tell me it is Facebook causing the problem and how to get rid of it.

When I look at things like

I see these strange gray blocks (I think related to twitter) that have a light vertical bar moving across. This happens a lot of times. Has been happening for a few months. I suppose this relates to something they started doing in HTML at that time.

The issue: on all sites, whenever media with audio plays (either automatically, or when I click), the audio stops after 2-3 seconds. If it is video, the video continues to play without sound. When it is audio-only, such as bandcamp, the timestamp stops. Audio resumes playing if I rewind or manually move the timestamp handle (scrubber?) back. This must be repeated each time the media is paused. Audio does not resume playing if play and pause are pressed, or if the site is refreshed.

Troubleshooting steps attempted so far:

  • Tried a different browser. Microsoft Edge works just fine.
  • Allowed autoplay for both audio and video
  • Cleared cache, and ensured that cookies were allowed
  • Turned off all adblockers
  • Uninstalled flash
  • Refreshed firefox settings

I'm at a loss!

Have tried just about everything (i think) as i have read in the other support posts. When i boot my computer and try firefox, it loads for a second and then crashes asking to send the crash report and to restore the tab. I click yes and it crashes again with the same window. Sometimes if i reboot it all of a sudden works. But literally everyday when i log on for the first time it crashes, then i reboot and sometimes it crashes, and then sometimes on the second reboot it just works somehow. I have tried installing earlier versions, refreshing firefox, starting in safe mode etc.

Here are a few of the crash IDs that were submitted successfully (others failed to submit). Thanks for your help.
