6-9GB consumption just seems like too much to me. Attached a couple screenshots and the FF troubleshooting information, any other data I can provide anyone that can help this? I'm sure restarting firefox will fix it for a while, but it seems like there is a resource leak somewhere.

Hello,

Ever since the last upgrade was installed I have seen that the browser gets slower and slower but even on the first tab opened the performance is terrible. The symptoms are that pages load slowly, typing doesn't get displayed in the order typed, using aps like Ancestry in the photo section; using the select a face from a picture is very slow and jerky.

I would gladly give up what 'improvements' 92 provided just to get back to a version that works better.

I have disabled unused features, defragged the HD, and followed what was provided about slow FF and nothing has helped.

As a test I tried another browser on the same site and it was lightening fast. I prefer FF so that is not an option.

Any ideas on what I can do to get FF to operate better????

Thanks on advance for your help!!

As I understand it, FF will soon start updating regardless of my settings. I have my update set to "Never", but it sounds as if I will no longer have say in all of this mess.

The most important feature for me is the old Tab Groups V. 2.1.4. It by far the biggest time-saver I have. Without this, I would have a heck of a time manually bringing up various tabs all the time and it would entirely foul up my schedule.

How do I keep TB from automatically updating?

Anyone know a replacement for the Tab Groups that could just take my existing tabs (over 100) and use them w/o doing it manually?

Thanks!

Issue: Facebook not loading some pictures, loading very slow, or not loading anything at all (blank screen).

Firefox 92.0.1 (64 bit). The only extension is AdGuard, deactivated for Facebook OS: Windows 10 Pro 10.0.19044 Build 19044. Recently installed. It works perfectly with Microsoft Edge and with Chrome.

What I have already tried: - "Forget this site" option - Clear all cookies and cache - Start Facebook in safe mode - Deactivate "Enhanced Tracking Protection" for Facebook - Uninstall Firefox, delete related folders, run registry clean, reinstall Firefox

I've had several instances when the browser would freeze after logging out of my user and/or when the internet cuts out on windows 10 Home 19043.1237. I figured it would stop after an update of Firefox (i currently have it set to automatic) but it hasn't. Even when I stepped away from the computer and it went to sleep, the browser froze and I had to force quit.

Suddenly my mouse cursor is erratic when I am using Google Maps through Firefox. The cursor is invisible and shows up erratically on the screen. Very hard to select anything on a map. This problem seems to have started out of the blue yesterday (September 10, 2021). I made no changes to anything that I am aware of. This problem does not happen on any other browser page, or any other application on my PC. Just Google maps through Firefox. I tried Google Chrome and the cursor worked fine.

If I copy and paste any two words or more into the search bar on the new tab it goes to google.co.uk as that is set but only searches for the phrase minus the first word. If I paste it into the address bar everything is ok. If I do the same with a one word term the search bar does nothing having "lost" that word and the address bar works fine.
