Plugin container often takes 75 to 80% of memory even when all addon's have been removed/deactivated

I've been using Firefox for years...since early 2005 and it has been a dream. But recently it has started to crash and the Plugin container regularly uses 50% of my memory and this has increased to over 95% causing the computer to freeze altogether. Even trying to open task manager to close Firefox has on one occasion taken 20 minutes. This seems to have only recently started to happen since I "upgraded" to Firefox ver 49.0.2 I have tried installing earlier versions, but keep getting annoying popups to upgrade, so I've reinstalled 49.0.2. I know earlier versions may have security issues, but anything has to be preferable to the Plugin container taking over my computer. It still happens now, even thought I have disabled all my plugins/add-ons listed below I have an Acer laptop with 4Gb memory and running W 8.1 Help in resolving this would be appreciated Eddie

Updated to Firefox 49.0.2 I go to facebook, and try loading a java game called Bingo Drive. It takes 3 to 5 mins to load the game. Tried running in safe mode.. Same results.. Tried refreshing, it said it had a problem with one of my tabs or something like that..

I usually run it with Adblocker plus and Video downloader helper..

If I go to facebook and load this game in MS Explorer 11, the game loads in 15 seconds.

No idea what is causing this problem of slowness.. It says all my add ons or what ever are up to date.

Firefox won't read my password file

I don't know why - possibly after a firefox update to 49.0.2? But Firefox on Windows 10 is no longer saving or using my saved passwords. When I try to display saved logins, there are none showing. However, I do have intact key3.db and logins.json files, and I can see in logins.json that there are lots of logins stored in there. So I'm sure the data are there, but just not being read.

Uninstalling and reinstalling didn't help. Refresh didn't help. Synch seems to connect, but doesn't help. Isn't there some command to force the browser to read the saved logins file?

Firefox has been crashing intermittently until yesterday, it began crashing every time I tried to start it. Now I cannot even open it in safe mode. I have tried uninstall and reinstall via synaptic on my Linux Mint 17 system. Below is the most recent crash report:

After my husband logs in and Firefox starts up, he continues to get window to Restart Firefox To Update. When I click on About Firefox it also indicates that we have to Restart Firefox To Update. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox from Mozilla.org 3 times now and this problem continues. Refresh also does not eliminate the problem. Clicking on Firefox in Applications file identifies version as 49.0.2. Operating system is OS X El Capitan 10.11.6

When I log in to Firefox under my user, I do not have any problems.
