After my browser being open for a while, usually a few hours, Firefox starts to get some major hanging in some tabs; I can have two windows open, one with a youtube video playing and another with like reddit or something else, and when browsing reddit, I get major hanging when interacting for around 7 seconds.

I recorded a couple performance profiles to see what's causing it, and it seems to consistently be a very long JIT or GC call, also labelled as "Cycle Collection" in the waterfall view.

I saved the profiles and I can upload them, but I'm not sure if they come with any private info so I'm reticent to add it to this thread.

I've watched the Task Manager (the Firefox one and the Windows one) while this is happening and memory usage in the Windows task manager seems to rise quickly over a few seconds then suddenly drop back down. I'm not sure if that's relevant. In the Firefox Task Manager I didn't see anything particularly salient other than energy usage spiking up just after the hanging is over.

This doesn't only seem to happen on Windows because it also happens on my Linux laptop occasionally as well, in a very similar manner. I didn't collect any evidence on Linux yet.

This has been happening for quite a while now, on multiple versions of Firefox in a row. I'm using 79.0b3 Developer Edition right now on my Windows machine.

Closing and reopening Firefox usually causes things to clear themselves out and I don't get such long hanging for a while.

I would expect JIT and GC to happen in much smaller chunks to avoid hanging, it's strange that it takes that long for one call.

When I try to checkout on a site using Shopify, the credit card fields are unusable. The form fields turn into animations, almost like an animated GIF and will not stop. It is difficult to describe what is going on. Here's what it looks like:https://i.imgur.com/mTJfDeD.mp4. I don't know how else to illustrate the issue. This has been going on for the past several versions of Firefox. I'm currently using 79.0b3 (64-bit) on a Mac.

I have a dual screen windows 10 system. I use both Firefox and Chrome. Chrome is set as my default browser because I use many Google apps. However, when I search the internet and open non-google programs I use Firefox. I would like to have Firefox always open on a designated screen. Is there a way I can set Firefox to always default to a designated screen.

I look forward to your answer.

This is my rig: www.bit.do/kanishkpc and I use the latest Firefox Beta (always updated)

I have been using Firefox without the kind of memory usage that I am seeing recently. With ~10/15 tabs open, my PC would never be troubled. The RAM usage wouldn't be at 90% but in the past few days (possibly because of a beta update?) I get 50% RAM usage (8GB) with 15 tabs. Yesterday concurrently loaded ~6 YouTube tabs caused a 90% usage from the app and I had to close it.

The RAM usage might seem normal but Firefox actually never uses that much RAM - or didn't earlier at least.

I used MalwareBytes a few days ago to do a malware scan and it found my PC clean. If I did have malware (I had a bit of scare earlier), how would I detect it?

Firefox completely stops canvas rendering after switching back from a tab

I have been facing this problem from some of the recent versions where:

  1. I open a tab with an HTML 5 canvas [please see note 1 below] with some drawing animation or even online games
  2. I switch to another tab, wait for a couple of seconds there.
  3. Come back to the previous tab (point 1 tab) and see the beauty of frozen canvas (completely stopped rendering)

[note 1] For the test, I also have an open source app that has the canvas (no ads): http://jmblr.rf.gd/?i=1 ... </div>

Here you click on a word, then click on the organized words, that will open a background tab in duckduckgo. Then come back to the tab of jmblr.rf.gd, you will see it. If you can't see, try opening a couple of more tabs, maybe wait 2 seconds for each. Won't take long for the freezing experience.

Now this doesn't only happen with my apps, but also with other apps, and games (well this feels bad to write a site full of crappy ads, but I played subway surfer on www.poki.com and the game froze in a similar way when I switched to another tab).



Recently I was playing subway surfers online, and then switched tab, then came back and saw the game is frozen. It's happening for a month or two now...

I have tried different sandbox levels from about:config (because I previously set "security.sandbox.content.level", and "security.sandbox.socket.process.level" to 0), tried the default one, nope that's not a problem here.

What's going on?

It seems that as of 79.0 the `lock` file in profile dir is no longer removed at browser close. That doesn't play very nicely with selenium driver (ruby API) when I want to create a browser instance with existing profile name. It seems that profile directory is copied, but this fails for `lock` file, as it cannot be `stat`ed.

Is not removing `lock` file intended?

This can be reproduced with: ruby -r 'selenium-webdriver' -e 'Selenium::WebDriver.for :firefox, profile: "my_existing_profile_name"'

which gives the stacktrace: /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/rubyzip-2.3.0/lib/zip/entry.rb:409:in `stat': No such file or directory @ rb_file_s_stat - /mnt/work/webdriver-rb-profilecopy20200726-75146-9bn20t/lock (Errno::ENOENT) from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/rubyzip-2.3.0/lib/zip/entry.rb:409:in `file_stat' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/rubyzip-2.3.0/lib/zip/entry.rb:551:in `gather_fileinfo_from_srcpath' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/rubyzip-2.3.0/lib/zip/file.rb:303:in `add' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/common/zipper.rb:92:in `add_zip_entry' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/common/zipper.rb:55:in `block (2 levels) in zip' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/2.6/find.rb:49:in `block (2 levels) in find' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/2.6/find.rb:48:in `catch' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/2.6/find.rb:48:in `block in find' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/2.6/find.rb:43:in `each' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/2.6/find.rb:43:in `find' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/common/zipper.rb:54:in `block in zip' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/rubyzip-2.3.0/lib/zip/file.rb:125:in `open' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/common/zipper.rb:81:in `with_tmp_zip' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/common/zipper.rb:53:in `zip' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/firefox/profile.rb:193:in `encoded' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/firefox/options.rb:136:in `as_json' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/firefox/marionette/driver.rb:81:in `create_capabilities' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/firefox/marionette/driver.rb:36:in `initialize' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/firefox/driver.rb:33:in `new' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/firefox/driver.rb:33:in `new' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/common/driver.rb:54:in `for' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver.rb:88:in `for' from -e:1:in `<main>' 2020-07-26 21:58:10 WARN Selenium [DEPRECATION] :profile is deprecated.
