Laptop Slowdown - Task Manager Shows Almost 100% Memory Usage

Hello - first I just want to acknowledge how great it is to have a free browser, and the great work the (un-or underpaid) Mozilla team has done lo these many years - thank you.

Okay, just want to put this out there but it seems sometime after version 90 of my Firefox browser I am seeing extreme slowdowns on my underwhelming Dell 5520 Inspiron laptop, circa 2014, running Windows 8.1. I also have Malwarebytes and Avast Premium Antivirus running together. My last Windows update was about two weeks ago (11 Nov 2021). My Firefox browser is currently 94.0.2.

I have noticed this four times. I typically browse Reddit but sometimes it's with Youtube. This is normally the scenario: 1) Launch browser; 2) navigate to website; 3) keep tab open for several hours and in many cases my laptop will go to sleep at least once; 4) at some point after waking up PC, logging in then continuing to browse, a warning banner in Firefox will tell me "This website is slowing your browser down. Stop it?", but if I wait at least 5 seconds it will automatically clear; 5) launch Task Manager - which is not easy because of what is going on but after 30-60 seconds it will appear; 6) notice that memory usage is extremely high and most processes are coming to a halt; 7) close Firefox and thing return to normal after 30-45 seconds. I've attached some before and after screenshots. The "before" is after browsing Reddit for about 3 hours and my laptop went to sleep twice; the "after" is when Firefox was closed (two tabs were open - one Reddit, the other Youtube) and then waiting about 30 seconds. Firefox instances take a little time to disappear from Task Manager, apparently.

Lots of variables to consider here: Latest antivirus program not working well? Extensions? (I have three extensions - Adblock Plus, Privacy Badger and Ecosia Search) Perhaps Firefox itself? Motherboard/DIMMs that is/are overdue for the landfill? Windows sucks? (rhetorical).

I guess I am not really looking for help but instead just want to log this as a heads-up to anyone who is encountering the same problem under the same conditions. I will continue experimenting with refreshing my instance of Firefox and possibly turning off browsers/antivirus components in a selective manner to see if it makes any difference. There is also the possibility that a Windows Update has broken something so maybe a restore point is in order here.

Thanks again for offering such a great product.

  • Sorry if the text contains grammar mistakes, Russian in store*

I right-click on a random link, button, image etc. but nothing is happened when I select "Open Link In New Tab", "Open Link In New Window" or "Open Link In Private Window". It works only if I use combination "Ctrl + left-click". Has anyone faced the same problem and know how it fix it?

Using Firefox 94.0.2 and I randomly can't load web pages. It will work fine for a while but eventually I get stuck loading the page. Restarting the browser seems to solve it for a while. This only happens with my Firefox browser on my organization's PC running Windows 10. The browser works fine at home.

I have tried various things, like deleting private data, re-installing the browser, using installed and portable versions, running in troubleshoot mode without addons & extensions, but to no avail.

I'm currently writing this in Chrome because Chrome doesn't have this issue.

As the subject says, when attempting to upload images from my computer (Ubuntu 20.04 on Firefox 94), often but not always, the result will be a visual glitch similar to the image attached. The only time which I have ever used Zoom on Firefox, the same issue happened when I tried to use my webcam, except that the lines rapidly changed colours.

I apologize if this issue has been solved in another thread, but this is a bit hard to describe without the picture, so my attempts to search for said thread were unsuccessful.

The issue is not present when I upload the images in question via mobile. Turning off my extensions has no effect.

The image attached is taken directly from attempting to upload a profile picture to my Firefox account, but I have experienced this issue with websites like Twitter and Ebay for example. I have never had this issue with Imgur, for example, even though I am doing nothing different (uploading images). I do not know why this only occurs for a select few websites.

Any responses or help is appreciated!

Both Firefox and Google are throwing up their "Security Risk" webpage's whenever I try to get AnimalPlanet.com/pitbulls, animalplanet.com, Animalplanet.com etc. If your in the U.S. and reading this then you know what Animal Planet is and you've probably heard of Pitbulls and Parolees. I have the Channel on my computer currently through Discovery+ and am streaming the show, again. This link, the first one I listed, is supposed to take me to an "outtakes and extras" page and i figured maybe that one was broken but I should be able to get to Animal Planet's website without using Discovery+ and it certainly shouldn't keep telling its a Security Risk but no matter how i try the combination of just animal and planet it comes up??????

Firefox will not play any videos for me. This occurs on every website. On youtube for example, the loading circle will be perpetually spinning over the video. I can use the slider to scrub through the video, and a static image will appear, but not play. The Youtube video will play no problem in Edge browser.

This is on a Dell Latitude laptop with intel i7 integrated graphics. I have already tried every common solution I have found while searching:

  • Computer drivers and Firefox are up to date
  • Disabled hardware acceleration
  • Disabled all my add-ons
  • Turned off Firefox enhanced tracking protection
  • Turned on allow autoplay video and audio
  • Started in safe mode, still won't play video
  • Cleared cookies and site data
  • Refreshed firefox
  • Uninstalled and reinstalled firefox

Is there anything else I can try, or any troubleshooting steps I can follow?

Thank you!
