For the past few days, when I try to log on to PlayStation on Firefox, the sign-in page sits on a loading swirl after inputting email. There's a clear memory leak shown on Task Manager. The menu bar's right-click doesn't draw properly. FF can't be closed and needs to be terminated. The only extension I have is uBlock Origin disabled for this site.

This website works on Edge.

Attached is the broken menu from right-clicking the menu bar.

Since the last update (earlier this week) firefox uses large amounts of memory. It shows in the windows task manager 20 and more instances of firefox being open and one of them using 85%-90% of the available memory. I looked up help articles regarding this issue and one of them mentioned to "Delete content-prefs.sqlite file". When I do that it will help for a short period of time but then the issue is happening again. I'm using Windows 11 64 bit.

I'd appreciate some advice on how to deal with this.

Hello,

I'm seeking help because sound is not working on Firefox. All other software are able to produce sound on every speaker and headphones I have. The speaker logo does not appear in tabs were videos or music is playing and firefox doesn't show up in EarTrumpet. It does show in the volume mixer but no bar appears to show it is displaying sound while media is playing.

I'm running : Firefox version 119.0 64 bits Windows 10 64 bits version 22h2, OS build 19045.3570

I've tried :

  1. Restarting Firefox
  2. Muting/Unmuting Firefox in the volume mixer, in firefox tabs too
  3. Downgrading to version 118.02 32 bits
  4. Uninstalling all my audio drivers followed by a restart (they got re installed but no change for Firefox)
  5. Restarting Firefox with all addons disabled

I'm running out of solutions.

Kind regards

I have custom URL's set when opening my homepage. For the last few weeks, Firefox has been opening tabs from the last session. I've checked the URL's and they are correct in the settings but for some reason they're not loading properly.

These are the correct URL's in the setting page. https://www.etsy.com/your/shops/UiJewelryMaui/tools/listings/state:sold_out,sort:sold_out_date,stats:true|https://www.etsy.com/messages?ref=seller-platform-mcnav|https://www.shopify.com/|https://maui.clareityiam.net/idp/login|https://outlook.office.com/mail/|https://calendar.google.com/calendar/u/0/r?pli=1|https://www.microsoft365.com/?auth=2|https://www.canva.com/|https://hawaii.infinitecampus.org/campus/portal/parents/hawaii.jsp|https://mauinews.org/pub920.htm|https://www.mauicounty.gov/Bids.aspx?CatID=19|https://hiepro.ehawaii.gov/vendor-dashboard.html|https://us2.admin.mailchimp.com/campaigns?ref=plums_nav&_ga=2.43380451.756894218.1698551103-1299448220.1698551096#f_bucket:recent;t:campaigns-list|https://hawaiicovid19.com/

However, the pages that load at start up are not these URL's, instead they're opening with the ones in the photo I provided. How do I fix this or do I need to select a different default browser?

Orientation option is missing when I try to print documents from a website. The Firefox Print Preview window, which usually allows orientation choices for printing, is now not available.

I have lost all my Bookmarks - they have the same name, but the icon & address is wrong.

  • This is on-going = I cannot Bookmark without it occuring.
  • I have attempted to restore to a previous point, but the issue did not resolve.
  • This occurs over all my synced devices. (I have now stopped Firefox syncing.)
  • The incorrect icon & address is from a 'trusted' site (ie. national govt, email provider etc) that I have previously visited, but never Bookmarked.

Please help as I use Bookmarks professionally & have built an excellent database over many years.

Have sold loads on Ebay using only Firefox as the browser. Tried to list another item a few days ago, and after entering the details on the first page (Item description and section to list it in) couldn't get beyond that page. The next page appeared not blank but as light grey filled rectangles where the text etc should be. Obviously tried reload. Same over the next day or so. In desperation, used Edge. No problems with that, using the same first page which Ebay had stored for me. Just tried again with Firefox - same fault.

Is there literally no way to control firefox's memory usage? I have tried a lot of things and none of them work

Hello, I have been a diehard Firefox user since it was still in Beta. I have been using computers personally since 1994 and professionally since 2004, doing Windows and Linux systems administration. I can and will do whatever (within limits) you need me to do to troubleshoot and resolve this issue, which is otherwise going to cause me to abandon this otherwise excellent browser, perhaps forever. The browser.cache.disk.capacity seems to work, but browser.cache.memory.capacity does not.

Why does firefox not respect the assigned values for browser memory cache (browser.cache.memory.capacity)? Is there anything I can do to limit the memory and processor usage of Firefox and its child processes? Is extension CPU/memory usage constrained by the application values? Is there a way to determine and/or limit the resource usage of extensions?

I have included a number of screenshots documenting its behavior and generated an about:memory report during "normal use". After configuring a number of system variables, I then attempted to determine its resource usage under heavy load.

Open the browser with a couple 2, 3 tabs: ~1GB memory usage Use the browser as "normal" (dozens tabs): ~2GB memory usage Open 100+ tabs from history: The CPU and memory resource usage increases until it consumes all available system resources despite configured values. After killing and restarting the process, the tabs have invisible titles in the extension and browser, and must be closed using Ctrl+W until only a few remain after which the browser can be used normally and again consumes ~1GB.

While I understand "just don't open so many tabs", under some circumstances such as poorly written websites, bugs, etc, even single sites may attempt to claim excessive resources. I sometimes run VMs and such on this machine and in order to retain a responsive system, cannot have applications consuming all of the available resources. I have found one proposed solution that uses an external application, is this the only way?

I am open to allowing Firefox to utilize more of the SSD storage (the 1GB limit was imposed for testing) and would be fine with increased slowness due to disk cache or refetching internetworked resources. However, none of the settings I have changed or attempts I have made appear to be able to limit the memory usage in any way. Additional included screenshots are linked above instead of as attachments due to number. I can share or generate additional reports to assist in troubleshooting.

Thank you! JackD

I accidentally hid the menu bar and toolbars (with an accidental keyboard shortcut, I think), and when I re-enabled them, now the tab bar is above the location bar instead of right above the content windows. How do I move it back? I can't find the "browser.tabs.onTop" setting in about:config, or any check box in the View menu, settings, etc.

I'm using Firefox 119.0.1 on Ubuntu Linux.

Thanks!

I booted up firefox and clicked on youtube and I got the message please diseable your adblocker. I specifically came back to firefox after a year or 2 of not using it because I read that it will be intependent and will have working adblockers on youtube even when Microsoft edge,Opera and other browsers will bend the knee to Google. So what happened??? Why did the adblockers stop working on mozilla firefox? I have windows 11 and ublock origin as my add blocker. As it was recommened by most sites saying it was the best way to dodge youtubes anti-adblocker system. But now my adblocker no longer works on youtube.

A few days ago Ubuntu (22.04 LTS) showed me a message saying I can upgrade my OS (or something along those lines). I click on agree (any button that would let me proceed) and the upgrade took place (without restarting). Along with the upgrade Firefox was also updated to its latest version at the time (119.0). Since then, videos on Twitter play but without sound. On some other websites also none of the videos play. On YouTube, Firefox shows me a message saying "To play video, you may need to install the required video codecs" but the videos play fine; I haven't tried other websites but I assume all would have some issues. Google Chrome however doesn't have this issue and all videos play without any issues.

Note that I have not restarted my computer since the upgrade. I doubt this could be an issue but please let me know if you think this could be the issue.

I did the followings and restarted Firefox but none have worked so far for Twitter and some other random websites that I come across, but they resolved the issue for YouTube and now YouTube videos play, although I still get that codec message at the top of the tab:

sudo apt-get install ffmpeg sudo apt install ubuntu-restricted-extras sudo apt install libavcodec-extra

Someone told me this is because the default Firefox on Ubuntu 22 comes as a snap package and I should install the APT package manually instead so that it works. I prefer not to do this because I have lots of tabs open and have manually changed lots of the settings (including in about:config) that I want to preserve. I would also like to preserve the history of visited websites and keep the current cookies (don't really want to keep entering username/password on the same websites again). So the best way for me is to fix the issue for the default Firefox on Ubuntu 22.

Could you help me figure out what I should do to fix this issue?
