Quantum takes all my RAM and only releases it after crashing

I am regularly suffering from this issue where Quantum grinds to a halt and crashes after a few minutes (5 to 10 mins).

Whilst viewing the Processes tab in Windows Task Manager I have found that I have 7 entries of firefox.exe whilst having 9 tabs open in the browser.

As an example, whilst viewing ebay, carrying out a search and then looking at further pages, clicking back a page and then looking at another entry I find that the CPU increases from 2 or 3% to 50%, but the memory changes from 115,000k to over 3,000,000k. Only 1 tab shows the increased usage all the other remain relatively static. However I have opened Firefox with just one tab and had exactly the same issue.

Even as I write this question the memory has gone up to 3,150,256k and I am waiting to type further text but the memory has gone again. After 4 minutes of doing nothing it has has it dropped back to 150,552k and hopefully I will be able to finish this question before it crashes again.

I occassionally have a small Excel file open as well, but once Firefox starts using up the memory Excel crashes as the computer tries to close programs to give more memory to Firefox.

If I leave Firefox open, but not use it for about 20 minutes it seems to give back the memory, but within 5 minutes of using it again it is back up to 3,000,000k or above.

I used to be able to use Firefox whilst having other programs open at the same time, such as Photoshop CS5, Illustrator CS5, Thunderbird, Excel and Word, but since upgrading to Quantum I cannot have any other program open in the background. In fact all these programs work fine, even with all of them open at the same time until I open my browser.

The problem started with Quantum as I have not had the same issue with previous versions of Firefox.

I am using Firefox version 61.0.2 (64 bit) on Windows 7 with 4GB Ram.

I have added a couple of images to show the errors/memory issues.

Does anybody have any suggestions how to solve the problem?

A friend of mine accidentally installed something he shouldn't have which installed a plugin in Firefox called "Information Vine". The offending app is gone but the plugin remains.

The result of the addon was that it redirected every Google search to their own website (type something into Google... no "common phrase" dropdown... and it takes you to the malware's host website to display links to advertisers masquerading as Google search results.) And any installed adware/malware removal app already installed on his computer refuses to run (forcing me to install new software, which neither sees nor detects the malware.) His Avast Antivirus likewise does not detect the plugin.

Disabling the plugin solved the issue of redirecting his Google searches, but I can not find a way to *remove* the plugin itself. I've tried going thru his plugin folder (in his User\Profile directory), removing anything suspicious in his Registry that might be related, and even "HiJackThis" doesn't detect the plugin (even if I re-enable it.)

I'm stumped. How do I delete a plugin that can't be removed by conventional means? I've tried every answer found on Google but nothing works.

TIA

PS: Before anyone suggests it, I also already tried obtaining the path to the plugin via "about:plugins", found the folder and deleted it, yet it's still there.

Things have gotten worse. I am unable to reset Firefox because the moment I go to Tools> (etc) reset Firefox, it crashes.

None of the Flash help I have received from both Adobe and Mozilla is helpful.

I finally uninstalled Firefox completely and on a whim, thought I would install Seamonkey. It runs.........But, will not play ANY Flash. The plug in crashes as soon as I try to access any Flash site.

I can use Chrome with no difficulty. I can use IE with no difficulty. So, guess what??? Firefox is out until someone can fix the problem. I'm convinced that Firefox can not handle any Flash software whether Macromedia, Adobe, Shockwave or any other part of it. That is totally unacceptable.

The way I see it, I need to revert to an older version of Firefox AND Flash player. Once I can do that I think it will work together because none of this happened until the newest version was installed.

Where can I find all the older versions of Firefox?? And will I have any difficulty installing them.

Like I said before, I'm a long time fan of Firefox. Problem is, it tries my patience just to get it running again when you folks do an upgrade. The problem ALWAYS involves Flash in some form.

With great anxt and sadness,

Warning: If you upgrade to Firefox 17 and use Google's old search -

https://www.google.com/webhp?complete=0&hl=en

the autocomplete (drop-down box of you personal search terms) is disabled and per Google is not a Google issue

Again if you use https://www.google.com/webhp?complete=0&hl=en

your typed search history contained in the drop-down box is eliminated with Firefox 17, and once again Google has verified that it is not a Google issue.

Hopefully Firefox fixes this issue because tens of millions of people who use Google's old Search Engine -

https://www.google.com/webhp?complete=0&hl=en

use it because it retains your typed search history while eliminating google's suggestions, making searches fast and precise and effective and efficient without google's clutter of suggestions, yet Firefox 17 disables it altogether

As of midnight 12/12/14, Firefox started blocking plugins (in this case, Adobe Flash and Java Deployment Toolkit, possibly others as I've just been to websites that use those), saying that they're out of date. When I click on "Update Now," the Plugin Status page tells me that all my plugins are up to date. (I'm currently running Flash 15.0.0.239 and Java Deployment Toolkit 10.71.2.14, for the record.)

I get the point of this feature, and I really don't want to permanently turn on "always allow," but having to click two "allow" prompts every time I load a website that features Flash is quickly making web browsing intolerable. I'm on the verge of switching to Google Chrome over this.

Hi,

I have been using a website daily without issue for several years, suddenly last week I received a message saying secure connection failed when trying to do a search function on the website.

It has today got worse as I get the message now as soon as I log on, rather than when I just do a search.

The site is fine and I have used it for years. Please see attached screenshot.

Please help as its really driving me crazy!!

All of a sudden Flash slideshows I have installed are getting an "unresponsive script" error when you click on any of the hyperlinked slideshow images. After clicking on the image, it takes a long time for the page to change, then the "unresponsive script" warning window pops up identifying this page as the culprit with a :16 at the end.

Example: http://accessretirement.com/new

The slideshow itself works fine, it is the hyperlink that is a problem. I didn't change the script. This happens in Safe Mode as well. Also happens on Windows laptop. Does not happen in Safari. Clients are screaming, have tried asking this question before but didn't get an answer. Appreciate any thoughts.

Anyone with Norton software

Please also see these posts by CheckMate lower down in this thread:


I updated to Firefox 24.0 today (on a Windows 7 64-bit system) and since then I have had program crashes about every 2 to 15 minutes apart. Disabling hardware acceleration did not work. Firefox did not crash when I tried it in safe mode, but since I'm not sure what's triggering the crashes, I am still not sure if this is an extension problem. I have two crash reports: bp-40c597f4-aec4-47a0-92dd-14f382130918 and bp-abbbabef-0535-405b-8b30-0a5642130918. Can someone look at these and post a reply?

System details: OS: Windows 8.1 Professional (64-bits) Graphics Card: PNY NVidia GT 610 (2GB) RAM: 5GB Firefox version: 36.0 (32-bits)

Starting yesterday, when images would load on websites, some of them would either be completely black, or mostly black, with only a piece of the images loaded, only to fully load several minutes later.

Turning off hardware acceleration resolved this issue, but reduced the overall performance of firefox. Is there any other way to work around this issue, besides turning off hardware acceleration?

Note: The only 2 things I didn't try were resetting firefox, and a fresh install of firefox. I don't want to lose my addon data, and custom firefox settings, because it takes too long for me to put them back where they are now.

I'm also fairly computer savvy, so you can get pretty technical with me. If I don't understand something, I will ask.

Also, sometimes images and videos are not showing up in Tweetdeck.

The embedded tweets and Tweetdeck images and videos show up properly in safe mode, but not in regular mode even with all of the extensions disabled (yes, I'm restarting after to make sure they're disabled). I've also turned off hardware acceleration and restarted and that doesn't fix it, either. My laptop is updated, and all of my drivers are up to date, and so is Firefox and all of the extensions. These problems started after the big-ass update to Firefox 57. I have "refreshed" Firefox and that still didn't fix the issue.

Hi,

A fully functioning Firefox updated recently to Firefox Quantum. The browser starts and I have captured the 'About' window for you:

https://i.imgur.com/Y4vEeir.jpg

However, currently it is useless as it won't load any website pages. No errors are reported.

I have no problems with Google Chrome and Internet Explorer.

I believe I have followed all the help and troubleshooting advice on the Mozilla website. In particular, - I have removed and allowed Firefox through the Windows 7 Pro 64-bit Firewall. - I have uninstalled Firefox, rebooted, Run CCleaner and reinstalled Firefox 64bit (It is now correctly installed under C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox - I have refreshed Firefox. - All Plugins Disabled.

Nothing works!

Firefox has, for many years, been my preferred browser so this issue is proving to be very frustrating.

Please, can anyone help fix this nonsense? It is difficult to understand why, at the time of installation, Firefox could not configure itself correctly. Never experienced anything like this before.

Thank you.

Mike
