I realise that Firefox uses up a lot of Memory (particularly as it tries to run each Tab separately). However, my Firefox seems to keep increasing its usage!

I can start with a number of Tabs open & (after refreshing each Tab - to ensure it is "lice" & "active") I will get (according to Windows Task Manager) about 1,300MB in use.

Without opening up any more Tabs & without trying to run any Web-Based Videos, over a period of a few hours it will increase & increase & increase - perhaps getting up to 4,000MB!

I've cross checked with "about:performance" (to open FF's own Task Manager), to show the individual Tab usage, & that NEVER totals up to anywhere near the figures shown by the Windows Task Manager!!

Obviously, my FF is fully up to date!

Any comments!

Hello,

My Firefox routinely shuts down while I'm using my 2018 Macbook Pro, and the problem began when I updated my IOS to Big Sur This is a systemic problem with non-native apps ever since installing Big Sur. Apple won't address the problem unless I confirm that my non-native apps are compatible with Big Sur. Can you please confirm the most updated version of the Firefox Browser is compatible with Apple's Big Sur IOS? Can you also let me know if other users have experienced problems and if there is any fix?

for over a week I have not been able to access my Centurylink.net email.. when I have logged in and click the email button, the page brought up has a different URL than usual and page is blank. my email will work fine with the MS Edge browser. I have two computers, one using windows 7 and the other windows 10 and neither computer with the firefox browser will work for my email. everything else works fine in firefox. when I called centurylink last Monday they claim the problem is not on their end. I've cleared the cache and that didn't help. One computer is using Malwarebytes, but not the other. frustrated!

Normally use Edge. Using latest version of Firefox for something Edge doesn't do. I know how to get the Page Info (Tools/Click Padlock) but noticed in the popup context menu for this version that it is missing now when right clicking on a page or image. Only see View Page Source in the menu. Anyway to get the context menu back so it shows "View Page Info"? Maybe edit the "about:config page"?

Both my PCs were downloading from you tube perfectly, until two days ago, when the download button on both PCs disappeared, almost at the same time. As the people at Video Droid do not have an answer, I must assume the problem lies with Firefox. I hope we are not returning to the days when every update from Mozilla fucked up. Kindly explain how I can fix this mess, or how I can backdate to an earlier Firefox that worked properly. To be quite honest with you, I’m not the slightest bit interested in your new smart arse add ons, and tricks, all I want is a browser that works for me, not one that loses me days working time because your programmers can’t get their shit together.

Hi guys, hope someone might be able help, much appreciated! My organization forced us to auto-update win10 & it seemed they install "another" firefox than the one I normally used (Pic 2 - Firefox Quantum) & it seemed my firefox I normally used also was updated with this [Pic 1 - 78.10.1esr (64-bit)]. This is a mess!!!! After this erupted updates, everything was gone, seemed like Firefox has created new profile (afresh) for those "2" firefox.

I was digging on this forum, none was helping. So... 1. There was NO "old firefox" folder on desktop. 2. Tons of articles about "about:profiles" but not sure how it worked as it did not work for me, I was trying to look in "both" Firefox and click "Launch profile in new browser" rather than go to my "old profile", it seemed to create "default-esr-1...2...3 etc" as in Pic 3 & 4.

I am not very techie, pls someone could give some advice how to solve this a step by step would be wonderful.

Although I love using Firefox, this is sooo stressful & I'm pulling my hair out!

PS. Chrome on the other hand, had no issues with this at all, after the win10 update, Chrome just simple retained everything & let me restore all of session I was working on before, nothing lost from fav & apps either.

Hello, Sorry for my poor English.

I manage the network for my school. I use roaming profile and quota. At each new version of Firefox, I’ve got a new default directory for older version. At the end the size of the profile directory exceed the quota. Is it possible to limit size or number of these creation?

Thank you
