I'm using bandlab to link me and my friends who are hundreds of miles away to make music. Firefox and all browsers crash a lot with a "high memory usage" alert. But these are pretty big projects. I have 32GB RAM, this thing is crashing at much lower RAM levels than I would like for it to use. like 1GB seems to be the limit (i dont know that number if its exact or correct)

Is there any setting where I can INCREASE memory usage so I dont lose work from random crashes due to memory usage?

I have used a free Hit Counter for many years that I got from https://www.freecounterstat.com/

I have 3 such counters and have stopped working in the latest version of Firefox on my desktop. They work with Firefox on my iPad and Android phone. They also work fine if I use the Edge Browser but I prefer using Firefox as I have for many years.

The embedded code is pretty simple, here it is for one of my counters... <a href="https://www.freecounterstat.com" title="visitor counter">Hit Counter for Financials</a> Can you help? Thanks, Bill T

For some reason, the bullets used to hide a password are not rendered properly in Firefox. As shown by the first uploaded image, they are displayed as big white-filled circles.

This problem does not occur on chromium-based browsers, as shown by the second uploaded image, which is a screenshot taken from chromium, on the exact same session.

I have already done the following:

  • verified that the "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" box is checked in my preferences. I have also tried disabling and re-enabling this option
  • launched FF in troubleshoot mode to disable extensions and hardware acceleration
  • verified that gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled is set true in my about:config

All of these attempts however failed to solve the problem.

This problem is occurring on a fresh install of a Linux distro, so I first thought that I might be missing some fonts, but the problem might lie somewhere else since the symbols are properly displayed in chromium-based browsers.

Firefox browser doesn't load youtube's content, showing only grey for videos and text. The browser console shows a number of errors (I've attached a screenshot of the console). Even playing a YouTube video linked from a web site plays only that video. All other content is greyed out. Safari loads YouTube without problem. iMac 2017 OS is up to date, as is Firefox. What do the errors mean, and is it a problem with my settings? Thank you for any help

Repeated freezing/crashes with Firefox browser despite refreshes/new installs

I've been using Firefox for about six months. I'm a MacBook user with the most recent version of Sonoma installed. After a month or so of using Firefox it starts crashing and freezing. Sometimes I can't restart it for several minutes. Whenever this happens, I refresh it. I've refreshed it about twice. I've re-installed it twice too, but it keeps happening. Most settings are default, but I wanted to include the settings in case this could be the problem: - I've turned off Firefox home content - I've turned off all passwords and autofill features - Never Remember History - Do Not Track and Tell Websites not to share/sell my data are turned on - I left the standard-level security settings as is

I have one extension installed.

The only other browser I have installed is Safari and I am not having these issues. I should add that I don't receive any error messages when this happens, it just freezes. The most recent issue is that I was clicking on buttons on a website and it wasn't working, but when I started using the Safari browser (which also set to private mode) it worked fine.

When it works I love Firefox and would like to keep using it. I am wondering if there is anything I can do to fix this.

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.

Today I noticed that typing characters with accents like á, ã, â, etc. doesn't seem to work at all from firefox, they all end up ignoring the dead key and just typing the letter itself. It can render them just fine and I can paste them from another app normally too, but actually typing them is impossible from firefox.

After trying to troubleshoot, I eventually found out a few things: - iBus is not at fault, since it works in every other app and I even restarted it, but the problem persists - This only happens in my main profile, newly created profiles don't have that problem - The problem still happens on troubleshoot mode (as long as it is my main profile) - Compose key also doesn't work (I don't want to use compose key anyway, because my keyboard has specialized dead keys, but I at least tried it)

I suspect the problem lies in a setting on about:config that's different from newly created profiles, but I have no idea which and Ctrl+F searching this site doesn't show any relevant configuration that might be the culprit.

Hello,

I've been experiencing a great deal of crashes recently, mostly just with individual tabs, but occasionally the Firefox window itself goes down as well. I've tried reinstalling and refreshing Firefox, and I've been doing checks to see if my RAM or other hardware are faulty with no results so far.

I've mostly experienced the issue when playing videos on YouTube, but I've had crashes just casually browsing other sites as well.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated, and thank you in advance.
