I've had 4 different Firefox windows for months now or even more than a year. I use two monitors and I use lots of tabs. It has been easier for me until now to organize like that. I have 3 Firefox windows on my main monitor - one of them has like 10 tabs open. The other has 5. And the third one had maybe around 100. On the other monitor I have the last 4th Firefox window that has around 500 tabs open. I do this all the time where I get to a point in which I review them all in a day or two, filtrate thru the content I saved thru this method and after that reset the browser. So today I started this cleaning process with the 3rd window that had over 100 tabs. Was going great when suddenly I clicked the X button on the whole window and without any warning it instantly closed. I restarted the computer and nothing happened. All my information from over 100 tabs now gone forever and honestly this might sound funny to you but I'm literally having a panic attack right now having difficulties breathing. Before when it happened at times that I click the close button on these windows it always asked me a warning message if I want to close the window with these X tabs. No matter if the tabs are 10, 100 or 800. Always. No matter how many windows I have opened with different tabs in them. I immediately checked my settings and I see that "Confirm before closing multiple tabs" wasn't turned on which like NO WAY IN HELL did I go in the settings menu and turned that thing off. I haven't been in the settings menu since I installed firefox on this PC which was after I got my Windows OS like 2 years ago. And as I said I remember multiple times in these past months where I clicked the close button and it asks me if I want to close these X multiple tabs. So I dunno how that happened. Also I had the "Open previous windows and tabs" TURNED ON but that also didn't work apparently for some reason. So I'm not really sure what question I want to ask here, I guess I want some explanation why these things happened when clearly they shouldn't have and it wasn't my fault/mistake (from my point of view considering the facts). And also if there is any way to restore that window with the closed tabs.

Basically, firefox only opens new tabs. If you click on anything in the side menu, nothing happens. Of course, I tried reinstalling the program. I also tried clearing cache, refershing firefox as it was suggested in help pages. I also tried starting firefox in troubleshooting mode but it crashed and won't open in that mode. Although it opens in normal mode.

  • Other browsers (Chrome and Opera) are working well.

Whenever I search something and follow a link, or if I'm on a page and click a link to another site or page, the history in the tab gets overwritten.

I've only noticed it this month and if I'm looking for something quickly its extremely frustrating having to re search with the same parameters over and over or remember to open every search in its own tab.

I've had a hard time searching this issue, I don't know if my terminology is right or if it's just a very niche issue I'm having.

Any help would be EXTREMELY appreciated.

When I watch 1080p youtube videos on windows the cpu usage is very high, between 80 and 100%. If I start in safe mode, cpu usage is around 30%. In linux mint cpu usage is about 25-30%. I've tried to disable every extensions in Firefox but whatever I do the cpu usage is very high. Whats going on?

Greetings,

For a few months I've been experiencing consistent crashing in Firefox 95.x versions. At first the crashing happened "randomly" while browsing Facebook, but I eventually identified a pattern and learned that the crashes would happen when a Facebook 3D photo attempted to render in the feed.

Since then, I'm able to consistently reproduce the same crashing issue by opening Google Maps and launching street view. The crash happens immediately when street view attempts to load (unsuccessfully). This happens even with all plugins disabled.

Unfortunately I've had to failover to Google Chrome due to the stability issues in Firefox, though I would like to return to Firefox if this issue can be resolved. The issue does not present itself in other browsers.

I'm currently on Firefox v95.0.1 64-bit on MacOS Catalina 10.15.7, and my GPU is an integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB with a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M.

Thanks for your support.

Writing this feels a little like having a time bomb open as I'm using the Firefox browser. Of course, I’m not *certain* it’s Firefox causing the crashes, but it seems like it.

Using Firefox > seemingly on click (no specific type of object that I’ve discerned) but once in a while just if I have the browser open in the background > computer freezers > fans whir at max for about a second > computer crashes & automatically restarts

This happened once before. I’m assuming by the version number that it might be due to a new update. Before, I put up with it for a couple days then it went away on its own. This was months ago but fewer than 6 months. My computer is in good condition (no falls or rough treatment, it’s a 2019, the hard drive isn’t anywhere near full, etc) so it really SHOULDN’T be something failing, but the sequence of events is so weird.

Anyone else experiencing this on 95.0.1? Has anyone else experienced this before? Already tried a fresh install. Going to see if I can revert to 94.something to test my theory that it is Firefox… and save me from having to use some other browser. I have a text file of the crash output that gets sent to Apple but I do not see a good way to attach it here.

using firefox 95.0.1, 64 bit, on LInuxMint 20.2 I am in Israel, when I use google search, the result of the search opens in Hebrew display language. The only way I have found to fix this, to display in English, is to change my IP address to an English speaking country, e.g. the USA.

another browser, for example Brave based on Chrome, it always opens a google search result in English.

Please fix this ASAP

I see lots of people asking this question, but there is no guidance online. What is up? This is causing FireFox to use way too much resources, and slows the computer.

So why does firefox need to have so many processes opened for one tabbed window for a single tab?

3 Years later and this is still broken.

I have a win10 with 16gig ram and have found the system slowing down look at the task list and will find Firefox with 18gig of the memory and 90% of the cpu.

I have 9 tabs open to different sites but will see 30 firefox processes open.

At initial boot of FF only 9 to 10 processes open but the longer it stays open the more memory and processes it consumes just like a BOT virus would.

Why has this not been resolved?

Once the process shown a single with 1 gig memory just itself but many times the memory is spread out across multiple processes from half a meg to 500 meg per process.

Hi Folks, I just tried to search an archive website, www.nwhs.org, the website for the Norfolk & Western Railroad Historical Society. I can get as far as drilling down to a specific class of equipment such as a freight car, and it gets as far as saying 'XX documents found for xxxx' and 'loading'. At this point, it should load a list of available drawings, with thumbnails of any that have been digitised. I have used this website many times and it has worked just fine. Now, following a recent Firefox update, it doesn't load the list with thumbnails, instead it jumps to saying 'of 0 documents' and nothing else happens, just blank window where the list & thumbnails should be.

I have rebooted my computer, checked to see if another programme was interfering somehow....nothing changed. As a last resort, I fired up MS edge and oh, look! The nwhs website works just fine....

I'm not a programmer, but the evidence suggests this is a Firefox issue. How do we push the 'undo' button on that darned update because it looks like the most recent one might be a bit of a screw-up....somebody, anybody, do it quick, before I get too cosy with Edge!

Hello,

There is this one website where scrolling with keyboard keys (arrows or PgUp/PgDown) works intermittently. Sometimes it works when I load the page and then it stops (usually when I switch to another tab and then return to it), sometimes it doesn't work from the start. I went through the usual diagnostics (safe mode, new profile etc.) and even though sometimes they seemed to help at the beginning, the problem always returned. I kind of gave up on it, since the time consumed by me trying to find a solution is disproportionate to the minor annoyance it causes, but it still mystifies me. FWIW, it's a blog with a very long Disqus comment section (the latest post has nearly 1,500 comments). Maybe the problem has a very simple solution which I've just failed to find?
