I left my FF browser open by accident when I went to bed, no other applications were open. This morning I realized my GPU was sitting at 55c when I looked at the thermistor sensor in the hardware monitor report in precision X1.

As soon as i closed FF the temps went back to 25c in less than 1 minute.

So what is FF doing that consumes so much GPU even when idle?

I had a 2080TI GPU go bad two months ago after sitting idle overnight - now I know why - it was firefox using my GPU and overheating my system (even while not "appearently" doing anything).

I used to be a FF fan, but not anymore after losing a $1200 GPU due to the horrible programming that basically is making FF become a huge contributor to my electricity bill wearing out my hardware.

as of 2021 I am abandoning FF due to concerns of further damaging my PC.

For days I was noticing that, after exiting sleep mode for at least a couple hours, Firefox would open up with the spinning wheel and would be completely frozen. Frequently I'd have to reboot and re-open in Safe Mode, because it wouldn't force quit. Then I'd disable the plugins when I had it open. But eventually I had to re-activate this plugin in order to stream content. I don't know 100% if this is causing the problem. Is anyone else having issues with this plugin and if so, is there a simple way to fix/debug?

I refreshed my firefox (as recommened ). I have now lost all my passwords and "restore previous history" .. I have managed to log in to Firefox but can't retrieve my passwords other than re-registering with my various accounts. How can I get back to my previous version of Firefox which was what I used for years with no problems.

Hi!

Firefox won't open any webpage on my PC. Firefox starts but the addres bar won't open anything, no google none of the about: pages or anything else. I run Manjaro Linux 20.2.1 with linux kernel 5.10.19 and my Firefox is at version 86.0.

I have tried multiple different solutions for example changes my profile, creating a new profile downgrading firefox and doing a full clean install of firefox. The same problem persist also on LibreWolf(fork of firefox).

Do you have any idea what could be the problem?

I use Zone Alarm Extreme Security to scan for viruses, etc. I just upgraded to the latest version on my Windows 8.1 PC. Almost every scan has found the Heur:trojan-Downloader.script.generic virus in the same place. The path is as follows:

C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\56zaeue3.default\extensions\staged\{b54cc223-b03f-4f2f-8cab-347ec67ab3fe}\bootstrap.js

ZA keeps treating the virus, but I want to get rid of it all together. I haven't been able to delete it because it is not visible in the folder location listed in the path. I've turned on view system/invisible files, but it is not visible. ZA tech support suggests reinstalling Firefox to see if that solves the problem, and if not, then a complete uninstall then reinstall of ZA.

I'm wondering if I can just delete the "staged" folder to get rid of the virus... The only extension I have added to Firefox is AdBlocker Ultimate, and I did that after the virus started showing up.

Has anyone else had this virus problem and if so, how did you solve it?

Firefox crashes and restarts my computer all the time.

What happens: Suddenly the screen just goes black and my PC boots up again. Like the power was cut for a second.

When does it happen: It started in the last quarter of last year. It happens randomly when firefox is open and multiple times a day! It does not matter whether there is heavy load on the system or just few pages are open and I'm not even doing anything. I think it has happened only once while gaming (but the firefox was open that time). And generally with heavy workloads (gaming/solidworks) the PC runs just fine. Since it started I have done two clean installs of Win 10, "refreshed" the firefox, tried disabling all extensions, disabled hardware acceleration. The crash still happens.

The crash: The windows event has two errors after reboot: Event ID 6008 and 41. The crash happens so suddenly, there are no crash logs when windows boots up. It seemed so odd that I started to suspect my PSU is broken. BUT THEN I used edge browser and my computer didn't crash for a WEEK.

I miss using firefox to sync my stuff between mac, android and windows without having to log into big corporation account. But since starting to use firefox again, the crashes are back just as before.

Any Ideas how to fix this?
