Is there an option for increasing the maximum JS memory for a tab?

I was wondering if there way a way to override Firefox's default JS memory limit per tab? Right now, upon reaching about 4-5GB of memory usage, my JS console window reports an our of memory error and dumps my code. I appreciate that this is pretty normal behavior, as 4GB of memory is fairly outlandish for a website. However, for the use case of VR, particularly in physics engine development, it can feel a bit restrictive and even silly when I have 32GB sitting idle - and I could readily double that to 64. However, I know Firefox has a rather extensive about:config section - and I was wondering if anyone knew if one of these variables allowed us to override the internal limits of the browsers memory limitations?

I'm new to using a computer and trying to understand all Mozilla can do. I want to protect myself from hackers and don't want to lose my photos or financials. I was told I could be online and switch to being offline (just working with files not exposed to the internet).

I also have Windows Explorer, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer I'm trying to find my way around...was told Mozilla Firefox would be a good default...and not sure what that means either.

Any guidance will be appreciated. Thank you.

how to disable autoupdate of firefox 52>60esr? its important! I don't care why you stop supporting 52esr - it's the only one browser that allows me work

Governments and their agencies are in no hurry to update their websites and web applications. 52 esr is the only one version of your browser that works with such "hurdles". To suggest the transition in IE and Edge is not necessary, they are not working with some sites. Where they can be used - and we do. The situation is very unpleasant we have to use 4 different browsers for different tasks and your demarche deprives us of one of the most important. To expect governments best response to changes of the surrounding world is naive. Please ask users to update or not their version of firefox. Thanks. Yet we must smash 60 esr and reinstall 52 esr daily.

or better said - I want the Firefox to be used by two persons (each separated, with its own history, cookies, etc.). It seems that Firefox doesn't support this function - Multi account containers or multiple profiles really doesn't work in this way.

Is it a bug if Nightly causes Release to crash (crashes due to .cache/mozilla, extension data unreadable)?

I downloaded and ran Firefox Nightly 64.0a1 (2018-09-13) (64-bit), and forgot to run it in a new profile.

Afterwards, Firefox 62.0 crashed immediately upon startup. Deleting ~/.cache/mozilla fixed the issue.

Even after fixing the crash, all extensions acted as though their storage data was wiped. I think the storage format changed. Is this a bug?

i know that firefox has disabled the webroot password manager add-on. But all of my passwords were saved there and now I can't access my websites. How do i recover my passwords? By the way, it's frustrating that this was done with no warning. I could have simply downloaded the passwords into excel before the add-on was disabled IF i had been warned this would happen.

After I installed the 57 version I was really disappointed about the "dark" theme since the only dark area was the tab. Which is not dark at all. It simply hurts my eyes to look at such a bright browser, especially in the dark. Is there any way to make Firefox really completely dark?

There was another post before (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1192351#answer-1043824), however I was confused as to what to do. Any help is appreciated.

I'm generally happy for my downloads to all go into the same Downloads folder but occasionally I want to redirect it elsewhere. It would be cool if there was a keyboard button I can press while clicking on a link so that I get to choose where it downloads to on those occasions. Is there such a key?
