This is my rig: www.bit.do/kanishkpc and I use the latest Firefox Beta (always updated)

I have been using Firefox without the kind of memory usage that I am seeing recently. With ~10/15 tabs open, my PC would never be troubled. The RAM usage wouldn't be at 90% but in the past few days (possibly because of a beta update?) I get 50% RAM usage (8GB) with 15 tabs. Yesterday concurrently loaded ~6 YouTube tabs caused a 90% usage from the app and I had to close it.

The RAM usage might seem normal but Firefox actually never uses that much RAM - or didn't earlier at least.

I used MalwareBytes a few days ago to do a malware scan and it found my PC clean. If I did have malware (I had a bit of scare earlier), how would I detect it?

On the same web, Edge is using 153.8 MB, Chrome 0255.8, Firefox 565.9. Why & is this going to be fixed?

These results are in Task Manager when all 3 browsers are on on the same page: https://blog.mozilla.org/internetcitizen/2018/08/13/firefox-privacy-philosophy/?utm_source=… (tuilleadh eolais)

Hi, for the last few weeks, Firefox has been showing ridiculously high disk usage and memory usage - near 100% - growing steadily from the moment I open the program until it stops responding, crashes, screws up my system (mouse cursor hanging etc) and eventually I manage to end process.

Internet Explorer on the same laptop - Windows 8, 8GB of RAM - is fine.

Things I've tried: - Making sure Firefox is up to date. - Turning off Firefox multiprocess - Disabling add-ons - 'Minimize memory usage' in about:memory - Resetting Firefox - Restarting Firefox - The other advice at this page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-uses-too-much-memory-ram?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=High+memory+usage

What can people advise?

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?
