Nightly updated this morning and the help menu from the sandwich has stopped working. The menu options display, but none of them function. Mouse click makes the menu disappear as if it's going to show the panel attached to the option.

Uncaught Out of Memory Error Despite Ample RAM Availability - Firefox 126.0a1

Hi,

I am encountering an issue where Firefox throws an "Uncaught out of memory" error in the console, despite my system having ample RAM available. Here are the details of the problem:

  • Error Message in Console: Uncaught out of memory
  • Memory Usage Observed: Using about:processes, I noticed that Firefox's maximum memory usage caps at around 7GB.
  • System Specifications: The machine running Firefox has 128GB of RAM, so there should be plenty of memory available.
  • Firefox Version: 126.0a1

Given the significant amount of RAM available on my machine, it seems unusual that Firefox would hit a memory limit at just 7GB. I suspect there might be a bug or a misconfiguration causing this issue.

Can you please assist in diagnosing and resolving this problem? Are there any settings or configurations I should adjust, or is this a known issue with the current version of Firefox?

Thank you for your help.

Hi guys,

My Firefox Nightly keeps asking me to download empty files with random names, e.g. ABC1234567.htm, they always have random letters and digits but the .htm extension is always the same. The files are always empty, 0 bytes. As far as I noticed, it happens when I navigate through pages, e.g. clicking on various buttons on sites or using the Back/Forward buttons on my mouse. I tried to lookup of what's the source of the files via F12->Network, but it did not show me anything related to this problem.

It happens on different websites even on the site coded by me, so that's definitely a browser/extension issue. I saw some posts mentioning this problem on Reddit but there were no solution/explanation.

Just now it asked me to download 3 different files in a row. I made a screenshot of this issue.

Browser is FF Nightly 112.0a, but this is probably a bug in stable FF, too. "Always ask you where to save files" is checked, in preferences. Like title says, the "last download location" is stored, and works for downloading files, and downloading a SINGLE item in Tools\Page Info\Media (Ctrl-I), but if multiple items are selected (in Page Info\Media), folder opened will always default to set location, instead of last download folder.

How to disable Enhanced Tracking Protection on all sites and for every FF session. Choosing Custom, and deselecting all check boxes doesn't work.

I have tried the suggestions as described in the following article: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1273784 However, am still having the issue. It's as if the settings are totally ignored. I am using version 108.0a1 of Firefox developer edition. Ideally what am trying to achieve is away to disable all features of ETP. I figured setting it to custom with all values unchecked would have done the trick but it's not working. What works is if I add the site to the list of Exceptions for Enhanced Tracking Protection, then I will see all Ads loaded just fine on the page. However, this is not viable for me as I have a large list of sites that I visit, and I need to see the ads on them.

Does anyone know of a way to get around this feature in FF?

Is there another setting am missing from the previous article?

Unfamiliar icons appear in drop down box when I go to select a site I've visited from it.

This is for Firefox Nightly 105.0a1 (2022-08-05) (64-bit)

I have included a screenshot of the address bar dropdown and there are four unfamiliar icons that appear in it as large grey boxes with icons and descriptive text, in each of them. They are labeled: "View Add-Ons | Clear History | Open Downloads | Open Inspector" i would like to know if it is possible to remove these from this dropdown box or have them moved so that they appear elsewhere.

Every time Firefox developers add something, they inevitably fail to provide for it to be altered or moved to somewhere more suitable for the user's preferences. Kindly forward detailed instructions as to how I can update these to either disappear from this menu or move them elsewhere.

Also kindly please forward on a message for the developers to ASK PEOPLE where they want something to appear or be moved to or from. It does not make any sense to me, for me to have to put up with random icons in areas of menus, dropdowns, etc., that they were never before in!
