Is it my time to say GOODBYE to Firefox?
I have stated this issue once before after trying to find a solution by myself.
Whenever I boot up my laptop, firefox starts running in the background taking up a lot of memory space and cpu utilization. I have been with ffirefox since I started using laptops which is 7-8 years back. I never thought of switching browser or finding an alternative of firefox until for some months the issue is occurring. Now I am really annoyed to open up task manager every time and close firefox which is running in the backgroud. I have seen nothing unusual in the "about:performance" tab of firefox.
Please help me to continue my journey with firefox.

Does Firefox open a window? What does it show?
I don't start firefox..it starts itself at the bootup in the background only taking a lot of cpu and ram without any reason.
I called for more help.
In the Windows search box on the taskbar, enter; Startup Apps
You should run this to see what is set to auto start at boot. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/autoruns
