My laptop has limited RAM - about 2GB. Of the browsers I've tried (Chrome, Safari, Firefox), Firefox uses the least RAM, but it still uses around 1GB of RAM to display about 10 tabs (gmail, facebook, reader, and assorted other websites) - this seems insanely high.

Thinking back, this didn't seem to be a problem "back in the day", so to speak, so I tried installing Firefox 3.6 again.

Lo and behold, with the same addons and the same tabs open, Firefox 3.6 is using 300MB of RAM where Firefox 21 used 980MB of RAM. In addition, navigation is noticeably snappier in Firefox 3.6 - probably because it doesn't have to page to disk as often (which would often lock up my computer using Firefox 21).

I thought that newer versions were supposed to improve memory performance, not triple the required memory...

I'm running Mozilla firefox 32.0.3 (most updated version) on a desktop with Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. During the past few weeks, firefox has been running slow and crashing every 5 minutes (literally, not an exaggeration). I already reset my browser to the default settings but that did not solve the issue. What can be causing the problem?

Been using Firefox for years and have never had this problem before. Recently upgraded to V 20.0.1 and since then Cut/Copy/Paste will not work. Have tried Resetting and have even tried a complete uninstall and reinstall neither has worked. Unfortunately I need to use these features on a daily basis and if I can't get this fixed I'm going to have to move on to anther browser.

I tried to use Firefox in three different computers but only in the one with over 4 GB of ram is usable. Why it uses so much RAM and renders so slow? Specially the scroll is really laggy.

I tried clean installations but they do not fix the issue.

When opening Firefox and Chrome and playing a video in YouTube, Firefox uses over 500 MB while Chrome uses less than 300 MB. Both with the same single addon.

Is there something that can be done to use Firefox in computers with less than 4 gb of RAM?

About a week ago, my browser shifted to the new version of Firefox, version 29. Ever since then, I have had repeated random crashes multiple times a day and even an occasional blue screen incident. The browser has become so unstable as to be useless. If I'm counting right, this has generated over 50 crash reports since the upgrade; here's the tags for the last five:

I've shifted over to Chrome until this can be resolved, but I don't want to stay there because of the privacy issues.

I apologise if this is the wrong place to post this, but I thought to share my findings as I have seen other unresolved issues on the support forums matching my issue. I am not really interested in helping to solve the problem, as I have a workaround, but thought that someone in the Mozilla community might appreciate my findings.

Around a week ago, I began seeing regular system freezes. I was unable to pin down the exact cause of the freezes but there were some anomalies:

@Running Windows 7 Professional @No blue screen @Was unable to retrieve any trace or core dump @System ran fine in safe mode, but NOT when running a "clean" boot

I would be running for around 10-30 seconds after login before having a complete lockup and having to cut the power to the PC.

I pinned the crashes on one of two possibilities:

1. Hardware failure 2. Driver conflicts / issues

Instead of turning off services one by one to narrow down the problem, I opted for a complete re-install. I wiped the hard disc and re-installed windows from CD. After completing the initial setup, I left the desktop open for an hour, waiting for any freezes. After an hour of running, I began to start applications, ran solitaire, IE, etc. Another hour passed of me browsing the web with no crash. I installed all system updates and again waited an hour with no crash.

I had thought my problems solved, so I began a few downloads for applications: Deluge, Steam and Firefox. Firefox was the first installer to complete, so I installed and launched, within 10 seconds my system froze again.

After looking for other issues, I've seen there could be a conflict between firefox and my AMD display drivers. I have seen a few of these issues (still unresolved) in the mozilla support pages.

Despite me preferring firefox, I'm not too keen on spending any more of my time to help resolve this issue and am now using (urgh) Chrome. I'll keep an eye on firefox patch notes for any references to the issue and will try again in a few months.

As of writing this, I am back up to a rough description of my system before and have been running chrome with no crashes for 24 hours.

Again, apologies for my hasty description, likely posted in the wrong place, but I hope that someone finds this useful.

After I uninstalled Firefox, all icons returned to usual PDF icons and files were identified as "PDF" files, but when I installed Firefox (31.0) again, all PDF files again are identified as "Firefox HTML document". Extensions do not change, they are always .pdf, and files automatically open in Adobe Acrobat, but icons became "firefox HTML documents" icons and it is very confusing.

I was quite happy with the resolution before, and find this tacky and annoying...

When I downloaded Firefox's last update Firefox 22, Last night everything is now so zoomed in and big on this Firefox. Even the buttons seem bigger. I wanted to know how can I reset everything so it will look like the previous update of Firefox ?


Everyweb page I go to I have to zoom out twice just to get it back to its normal size now.

Is there also away to just change the webpage zoom and leave the buttons there current size. My brother likes how big the buttons on firefox it self is but not how far it's zoomed in on web pages.

Redo because not only does my thread seem to have disappeared, but also I wanted to start afresh.

First off, are my threads even showing up anymore? Usually I get fairly prompt replies, but my last couple of threads have gotten nothing. While I am sorry if I come off as rude or demanding, and understand that there are other people needing help and you all are busy, it is rather frustrating to not get a single reply on a thread, even if that reply is "We don't know" or "we are working on this problem". It might not seem like an important problem to you, but for me it is a problem and lessens my enjoyment of the Firefox product. Plus, having questions answered grants me more knowledge of the product, and thus grants me more ability to fix problems on my own.

Anyways, on to the issue:

Hello, Ever since I downloaded Firefox 25, I have had an issue with scrolling. If there was some way to record this, I would, but at this time I cannot, so a description will have to do. If someone knows a way to record what is happening, I will gladly do it to make what I am saying easier to visualize.

On some sites I visit, scrolling will be what can only be described as "choppy"- I will attempt to scroll down, but there will be a small delay before the page responds and scrolls down. Thus, the scrolling does not go smoothly. This mostly happens on sites (tumblr pages especially) with non-scrolling backgrounds (ie backgrounds that do not scroll with the page) on them.

First off, I do not think this is a problem with any extensions, my computer, or the sites themselves. When I open the same pages in Chrome, the issue does not occur and the issue does not occur in all pages.

I have tried clearing the cookies and cache, resetting my browser, disabling hardware acceleration, checking the plugins (problem still happened even when all plugins were disabled), updating my graphics card, and disabling website colors. The first few produced no lasting result/fix, and while disabling website colors did fix the issue, it made the rest of the site/other sites (ones that were working fine) difficult/impossible to use.

One interesting fact of note is this: If I downgrade to Firefox 24, the issue not only disappears, but stays away, and does not occur.

Another fact of note: I have written a previous thread on this issue, but ended up not getting an answer to a second question I had. In the first thread, I was given this possible solution, referring to a bookmarklet I could use/try: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/976244#answer-496960

So my questions here are these: 1) What is going on in Firefox 25 that makes scrolling choppy in that version, but not in version 24 or any other browser except version 25? 2) How exactly do I use that bookmarklet I linked to? Where do I need to place it? How do I get to where I need to place it? How would it work? Is there a way to/Can someone make it into a Greasemonkey (I have Greasemonkey) userscript, if it does work?

Also, is there a way to "bump" my thread without actually commenting on it?

so what has been happening is every time i boot up firefox and play a video in youtube its been setting my volume mixer in windows to max volume every time despite it showing it at 20%. i have tried lots of trouble shooting from other forums and none of them seem to help.

as far as i can figure out and been testing this bug for a while,

- it only happens to html5 videos and not flash.

- i have tried turning off the "allow applications to take control of this devices" in the headset properties in windows. (does not work)

- tried other browsers like chrome and this problem does not show up there.

- tried uninstalling and reinstalling

- i have plugins installed but pretty sure none of them are doing this. (autocard anywhere, ublock origin, https everywhere)

- i have been using windows 7, firefox 56.0.1


hope this get fixed in the next update :\

WIN XP. Have checked file association settings and pdf files are directed towards using Adobe reader. Completed uninstall of FFox31 and icons changed back to Adobe. Cleaned computer and carried out clean install. Icons remained as pdf for two restarts and then changed back to FFox icons. Everything works normally but the icons remain as FFox. Have set FFox application options to 'always ask' temporarily. I have a second WinXP machine that has upgraded to FFox 31 without this problem. Strange!

With each new version you suck a little bit more.

You have become as bad as google, updating and changing for no good reason, in a race to the bottom with yourself.

The whole reason I started using Firefox is because it worked, now after thousands of installs and convincing users to ditch IE you have become just as bad.

I now restart Firefox a dozens times a day on the 3 machines I use daily. The memory requirements are staggering and FF is now SLOW.

First thing out of the box you will say "you have too many add ons", sorry, I only use one, noscript and not even that on 2 of the three machines.

Three tabs open and nearly 600,000K and using 1-12% CPU just to type this text.

Don't bother with an answer, just clean up your mess. In the alternative we can all wait for someone to come along and eat your lunch. Give me a browser that WORKS and I will forget Firefox ever existed.

UPDATE! This question is not marked as answered, as the issue is a new 'feature' of Firefox 22, and if you read all the comments you'd see that. Clearly, with the large volume of 'new' answers coming in saying the same thing over and over, people aren't, so I'll say it here: THERE IS NO NEED TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION ANY MORE.

I recently asked about my UI being big and fuzzy, and managed to get that fixed in the about:config, but websites are still big.

For some reason, the default zoom (ctrl+0) is at 120%.

I tried the FullZoom and NoSquint addons, but both had one issue. They messed up the top level image view (which for me works with the old default image style addon) and made the unzoomed image a bit bigger than my screen, and the magnifying glass icon which should appear with a + or - in it when I mouse over the image is just a regular mouse pointer instead.

How can I reset the default zoom to be 100% (or preferably about 80% because even 100 seems to be overcompensating for my high dpi screen) without an addon messing up my default image view?


Further details. If I disable the 'old default image style' addon, the top level image view works fine with the NoSquint or FullZoom addons.
