Firefox fills disk space to 0 bytes few times a day

Hello!

I’ve been having quite strange problem with Firefox for a few months since version 80.X on clean Windows 10 (reinstalled from scratch after secure erase; the latest 20H2 version with all updates installed). It’s worth to mention that I’ve been using Firefox like 15 years and never had an issue like this before.

Firefox just fills up system drive completely (50+GB to 0 bytes remaining) few times a day under active usage. It happens randomly and I can’t identify the reason. I also can’t find any actual files saved on disk because it seems to be related to NTFS cache. I’ve tried disabling the following settings with no success:

browser.cache.disk.enable cached-web-content_cached-web-content browser.cache.memory.enable browser.cache.disk.smart_size.enabled

And couldn’t find any solution unfortunately. I usually have 2 windows opened ("common" and private) with 10 to 30 tabs each which is not much at all for i7/16GB I believe. This problem is extremely annoying and seriously affects SSD life so I'd really appreciate if someone would help me to resolve it. Thanks in advance!

Hello!

For the past few days my Firefox randomly crashes, specifically - tab crashes. Sometimes it is local news website, there was one fullscreen video that crashed that tab 2 times, and even YouTube tab has crashed.

If it helps, here is last few crash reports: bp-8aa70181-48fc-4c64-a45e-615130200612 bp-1f78d4a1-c489-4e46-bd7e-11b950200612 bp-05cb6a6c-8863-43ca-a395-d509d0200612 bp-46c4dd28-10bc-4015-8ea9-89fd80200612 bp-4b4186f4-6ee9-4bf0-96e9-3331c0200612 bp-986950ea-39d9-4cb5-84d6-1a7460200612 bp-90d58c69-469e-4af4-b861-c41940200612 bp-70ab3d45-0433-42d8-acd7-7700b0200612 bp-d1bb4768-61bc-4a2e-98c7-40c810200612

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?

With 8 tabs open, Windows task manager shows 58% CPU and 1279 MB memory use in 12 processes. The built in Firefox task manager shows less than 300 MB and mostly "low" energy impact. Why is there such a discrepancy between the two task reports?

Screenshots explain this better
