Audio/Video frequently goes out of sync. I can fix it by exiting FF and restarting it, but this is annoying because it usually has to be done one or more times every day.

I am running Windows 10 Pro on a PC Firefox 120.0.1 (64-bit) Thanks for your assistance.

This problem just started recently, where I can't unmount an external USB drive without getting this error message:

The disk "Projects" couldn't be ejected because "Firefox" is using it.

I hate to keep quitting FF just to unmount a USB drive - that means logging in again to various web accounts.

My only extensions running right now are Enhancer for YouTube, Grammarly, and Facebook Container.

What's preventing me from unmounting a USB drive?

Thanks!

Hello,

I've read and tried the fixes to open the newly updated (deleted and installed 3 times) Mozilla Firefox and nothing is working. I've pressed down alt to open in safe mode and I am unable to get it to open. I've looked for the Facebook plugin to disable it (saw a comment on that) and the plugin folder is empty. Is there a help desk with an actual person that can figure this out?? It is quite alarming to see so many other people with this problem and no real help from Mozilla employees themselves. HELP!!

I remember having: Panaroma, 2 tab organization and several YouTube addons to enhance my experience like Adblock, unhook, dislike return. And with several tabs as checkpoints for my search but I couldn't separate them and also it lagged a lot when having unloaded tabs. LibreWolf provides a better service maybe you could understand the frustration that Firefox had on me. There's no section for videos.

So I just picked up a new laptop (ASUS Vivobook 16x), and everything is fresh on it. Additionally, this only affects some video content in Firefox, with Edge browser unaffected. In brief, what is happening is that within a couple hours of having the browser open, certain video content stops working, specifically Twitter/X videos just spin, YouTube previews stop working, and videos continually load. Netflix videos continue to work, but hover previews stop functioning. I even check the 'Stats for Nerds' on YT and it shows 0 KB network activity in Firefox.

I've tried every basic action I can think of:

  • Turning off extensions (only use Ublock and Bitwarden)
  • Browser Refresh (x3)
  • Reverting from 120.1 to 120.0, and now 199.0.1
  • Clearing the browser cache
  • Reinstalling NVidia and Intel Drivers
  • Running in Safe Mode

Only by doing a refresh or completely closing/opening the app gets videos to function again. This doesn't affect the old laptop or my desktop, which makes me think it's a rogue driver--but then why would Edge function without error over the same period of time?

Are there any settings to play with in the browser that can help diagnose?

Firefox 120.0.1 Memory Leaks, Windows 11 & 10, not a new issue

Firefox uses too much memory, sometimes 20GB on a 32GB Windows machine. It's usually one or two threads which are hogging incredible amounts of memory. This time I had about 30 tabs open.

Today I tried Firefox about:memory "Minimize Memory Usage" several times, and it was largely ineffective.

I did a "create memory dump file" of one 5+GB bloated thread using task manager, but can't find a way to upload the compressed archive with this report for analysis. Finding a way to report this issue was quite a challenge. It seems most help avenues are now missing/moved, and other reports of this type of issue are "Archived".

I tried killing the 2 bloated Firefox threads and checked for tabs which might be missing or malfunctioning. Everything continued to run normally while more than 10GB of memory was returned to system use. Leaving these bloated threads overnight doesn't improve anything, in fact I can often get up and find my machine is completely out of memory because Firefox consumed it all. My smallest machines have 16GB RAM.

These memory issues aren't new. I've been reporting them off and on for more than a decade. They get better for a few months after reporting, then they get bad again in a few more months. The battle to get memory leaks fixed is continuous while Firefox springs more leaks.

I'd like to give you the memory image I generated so you'll at least have some real data to look at and analyze for this report.

The attached task manager snapshot image is a very minor example of this issue. The numbers keep increasing like there are one or more large memory leaks.

Windows, Ver. 120.0.1, 64-bit. Hardware acceleration enabled.

Many tasks on all websites result in GPU usage spikes. Very basic functions such as page scrolling or entering text often take a half second to register, making the browser feel unresponsive. I do not have a bunch of tabs open either and am not using any other applications that would be power-intensive.

Using an RTX 3050 Ti Mobile. Newest NVIDIA drivers, 546.29.

GPU usage spikes to over 10% when just scrolling the screen. Help!

I have been using Firefox to log into the Social Security site for years. Today, I am unable to log in, after trying several approaches. I switched to Chrome and was able to log in immediately. What has changed in Firefox?

Unrelated issue. On this page is an option to "share data." When I tried it, nothing showed up, but there was a link to explain how to do it manually. When I went back to this page, it was blank, and I had to start over again. Not good website design!
