For about..hmm... I'm not sure how long. At least a couple months, Firefox has been acting very strange. Before christmas I did a reset on firefox to clear up some issues. I don't run very many add-ons. I use moderator toolbox for reddit, ublock origin, and a "view image" add-on to add the "view image" option back into google images.
I've had all of those for much longer than this problem has existed.
I checked browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory and it's set to false.
I have 32 gb of ram and my ram is nowhere near being fully used.
What I'm seeing is that if I have 4 or 5 tabs open, going back to a reddit or youtube tab that I always have open results in that tab being unloaded and having to wait while it reloads the tab.
I also notice from time to time that middle clicking something to open a link in a new tab results in the browser jamming up from anywhere from 1-3 seconds.
Used Firefox for years and never seen any kind of issue like this before. I used to be able to easily open 20-30 tabs if I was going through google search results to try and find some information and never had any problem.
