Firefox hogging hard drive space with temp files (cubeb-shm...input/output)

I've discovered that in my Users/UserName/AppData/Local/Temp folder, there are thousands of files eating up space with name "cubeb-shm-#####-#####-input" and "cubeb-shm-#####-#####-output", where "#####-#####" is a 10 digit number seperated by a hyphen.

I did a basic google search for these filenames and found several articles that talk about how firefox uses these, and normally creates and then deletes them, so there should only ever be one of each (input/output) file at a time. For some reason, I have thousands of these files, and they are eating up hundreds of Gb's of space on my hard drive. I only discovered this because my computer notified me I was running out of space. I manually deleted them, but I don't want to have to do this regularly, since it seems it's not expected behavior for Firefox.

I'm running the 64 bit version of Firefox 85.0.2, and there are no new updates available at the time of this writing. I'm really hoping someone can help me figure out how to get Firefox to appropriately manage these files. Help me Firefox community! You're my only hope!

Hi,

The electric cut out while my Firefox browser was open. Now I get a crash every time I try to open Firefox. I can't send a crash report and windows will not fix the problem. How do I fix this? I need Firefox to work as it has all my passwords and bookmarks saved. Why can't I simply move over to the developer edition? I did try but the morons at Morzilla didn't add any options for moving bookmarks and passwords from Firefox to the developer edition. Thanks a lot Morzilla, you really fucked up my day.

How do I move address bar to above tabs?

     SUB   : How do I move address bar to above tabs?
     To    : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/desktop/form
     I have recently, past few days, been upgraded to
  Firefox Browser ver 89.0.
     It made changes I am not pleased with.
     It saved essentially none of my preferences, bookmarks,
  extensions, add-ons and etc.
     Pretty much had to start from scratch, reloading extensions,
  re-configuring extensions, has taken me hours.
     For some reason year upon year Firefox always messes with the
  address bar - tabs positions.
     I get it the way I like, then * BOOM * it gets reset.
     During this past "RESET", my preferences are not saved, they
  get blown away, year after year.
     I have to spend many, many hours attempting to get positions
  back to the way I want.
     Here is current (not-pleased-with) appearance :
     ============================================
  File  Edit  View  History  Bookmarks  Tools  Help
  Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab
  Address bar, where the web page url is displayed.



     Here is what I want. What keeps getting blown away :
     ==================================================
  File  Edit  View  History  Bookmarks  Tools  Help
  Address bar, where the web page url is displayed.
  Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab   Tab


     Notice the Address bar is above the Tabs.



     Now, in ver 89, after many hours of searching, it seems
  instead of some simple switch I can select or de-select via
  a check-box, I now need to become a programmer to make this
  change.
     I am not in any fashion or manner a programmer, nor do I want
  to become one.
     Cutting, pasting, editing, proofing code, alas, is not in
  my positronic pathway(s), it simply does not stick, error in
  processing and so on.
     Perhaps I have overlooked something in my searching to
  correct this positioning problem?
     Where is the check-box I can select or de-select to position
  the Address bar to my liking?
     Please and thank you.

Bookmark toolbar always worked and I could turn it off or on but always left on. But now Bookmark Toolbar doesn't show and when I click on it in Toolbar options the check mark won't appear but Menu Bar still turns Off and On when I click on it. Restarted computer before this happened because trouble with mouse pad and got notice about Firefox 89 update but closed it because prefer Firefox 88 that has smaller Bookmark and Menu Toolbars

Hi since the latest update today, ebat wont display properly, I have tried clearing cookies and cache and made no difference. It displays OK in a private browsing window. Any ideas, or is it just time to migrate to a browser that works?
