java.lang.OutOfMemoryError constant firefox crashing

Regular usage of Firefox results in crashes; usually have no more than 4 tabs on, but also crashes even with only one tab on. Using other mobile browsers (Brave, Chrome) with the same or even more level of usage does not result in crashes, leading me to believe the problem is with Firefox.

This problem was already asked previously (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1431267) but has been archived without a solution that worked for me.

Hi

I am sorry to hear that Firefox for Android is crashing. I hope that we can help resolve this for you. Before following the steps below, make sure that you have updated both your Android device and Firefox for Android to the latest versions available.

As a first step, close down many of the tabs that you have open to as few as possible. Does this help reduce the incidence of a crash?

If this does not resolve the issue, open the Android Settings app, select Applications then find Firefox in the list. In the section headed "Storage", selct the option to clear the cache (do not clear data!). Does this help?

Failing that, our developers will need to look into this in more detail with some logs from inside your copy of Firefox for Android. Type about:crashes in the address bar which will display information about recent crashes. If you select the most recent "Socorro" link, a crash report will open in a new tab. If you could copy and paste the address of the page that opens into a reply to this thread, we will be able to look into this further for you.

I hope that this helps.

Did so, still no luck.

Already copied above, I believe.

Please can you provide a link to the crash report that opens when you select Socorro.

Hello, how exactly do I do that? Where is this '"Socorro" link' ? (screenshot attached)

Edit: Apparently, the socorro link is located with a crash located further down. Here it is!

I have switched to Firefox beta in the meantime, no problems encountered. Firefox stable still keeps crashing.
