500 MB of RAM per tab??

Hi everyone,

I have the problem in the Subject line. FF sucks about 500 MB to be run, on top of which it takes 500 MB per tab, and that makes it impossible to run a research on my 8 GB Mac. Yesterday I was looking for a lamp and had no more than 7 tabs open, 3 of which were largely text, 2 were online shops, and 1-2 were websites with pictures. No Facebook or social media, no YouTube. FF froze, made the whole Mac freeze (well, Mac is garbage nowadays but let's leave that out of this topic), and I had to wait MINUTES before I could close it, because the computer was nonreactive.

When I check online, I see people being like "why can't it manage more than 50 tabs?". 50?!?! My computer dies with a maximum of 10 when it's only text websites!

So, I guess there's something wrong with this.

- I don't have many extensions (SimilarWeb, VPN, and Flash Player), I always use incognito so I can't use the plugin that allows me to use several accounts at the same time, so I can't see what's messing with my Mac. - The Activity Monitor (pretty much Task Manager on Windows) shows "FirefoxCP Isolated Web Content" for each tab, could that have anything to do with my problem? - CPU usage is very low, some 0.5 to 10% max during heavy use. - I seem to remember I used to have dozens of tabs open in the past, although I can't be sure. Is this a recent problem?

I really hope there's a way to solve this, because now I always fear that opening FF while on a Zoom meeting might freeze the whole thing.

Thanks to anyone who might want to shed some light on this big problem.

Screenshots: RAM and CPU usage with 2 tabs open. Two, taking more than 1 GB of RAM and about 250 threads in total? While using 0.2% of the CPU? I'm lost

After a computer reboot, ALL my bookmarks have disappeared. I'm running Firefox 98.0.2 on Mac 10.14.6 - I've followed all the 'help' advice: I opened firefox profiles, it only shows one. I rebooted Firefox (I was left with bare bones) and still no bookmarks and still only one profile. I've looked in the computer 'library' and I can find nothing compressed (the bookmarkbackups folder has 15 items but all are dated 2022). Can someone please help me retrieve them, I'm in the middle of a project and NEED the bookmarks. Thank you in advance!

After doing a reset to try and get rid of the yahoo redirect malware attached to the Firefox browser, now I cannot access google search engine within firefox, or my gmail email account.

FIrefox has been my default browser for years but if you cannot fix this very annoying and frustrating bug, I will be forced to your Chrome.

Very unhappy with this

Starting last night Firefox will not let me download anything. If I click on a download link, my Mac toolbar goes gray like normal, but no download dialog box ever appears. I have confirmed the dialog box isn't hiding behind any open windows on my desktop, and I have tried rebooting my system with no change.

Please help me fix this.

Whenever I click on a web search link that goes to Facebook, my Firefox browser back button is cleared. This makes it impossible to go back to my original search easily.

When I remember and notice, I open link in new tab to retain my history.
This started happening several months ago and can be frustrating when doing deep searches.
 I hope there is a security setting I am missing that is allowing Facebook access to my browsing history!
Thanks for your help!

Every time I enter a link to a google service, I see a notice that says "Your should be redirected in a moment..." and then I get redirected to the Stanford University website (https://pass.stanford.edu/signin.html). It is not a specific website redirecting me, but rather some algorithm is detecting a google link and sending me to Stanford University instead . For instance, if I paste in a link to a particular location in Google Maps, I will end up at Stanford instead. I have no idea how to fix this, but it makes me avoid Firefox and use Chrome because Chrome does not redirect. I would rather use Firefox.

I'm downloading a lot of images, and every time I do so a popup box appears showing the most recent five downloads and a button to show all downloads, It covers some of the icons I use for downloading images which is frustrating. If I right click on any of the downloads one of the options is to Clear Preview Panel, so I assumed it was called Preview Panel, but help does not know about that and I can't find how to stop it coming up (it used not to until I did something, I don't know what) It's driving me crazy.

I always use the current Firefox on two Macintosh browsers running OS 10.14.6.

Recently (in only one of the computers), if I download a file, a pane containing recent downloads opens in the upper left-hand quadrant. This is distinct from the downloads portion of the "Library" area, and gets in the way of my ability to use Firefox efficiently.

I can't seem to find a way to keep this pane from repeatedly opening up as I download things. Can anyone help?
