FirefoxCP Isolated Web Content is chewing up all the memory on my new iMac

Do you (as a Mac user) experience the same or similar:

44 instances of FirefoxCP Isolated Web Content ranging from 60MB-918MB each, with 18 of them above 200MB and 5 of them above 400MB. I have 15 tabs open and in practical terms almost nothing else open on the computer (a brand new M3 silicon iMac). It has 8 GB of memory. I had similar experiences in the past, but never as bad as now. I do not know everybody else can live with this.

Is this how Firefox is designed to operate or is this a bug?

Thanks.

If I start typing in the URL bar while Firefox is still launching, it will add the URL of my homepage after what I've typed in.

Just what they title says. If I launch Firefox and immediately click in the URL bar to type in a search, instead of preventing the page URL from appearing, it adds it after my cursor once the page has loaded. For example, if I launch Firefox and immediately start typing "weather in my area" it becomes "weather in my areahttps://www.youtube.com/feed/subscriptions".

This is a mild frustration, but a persistent one. It must be possible to fix, because other browsers (Chrome) are clever enough to not add any text once the user clicks the URL bar. What can I do to stop this from happening?

Hi there,

In the search settings, I have set DuckDuckGo as my default search engine and removed all other engines from the list of options. However, I often notice that Google (which I have removed from the options) has replaced DuckDuckGo as my default search engine and has again been added as an optional search engine, without me knowing. Why is this happening? Is it possible to stop it happening, and if so, how can I stop it happening?

Cheers Paul

I have had no trouble using Firefox for many years and am able to access all/any websites excepting for one which upto a few months ago I had no trouble with. The one that I am unable to access is

  https://www.scc-online.org 

and all I get is the "The connection has timed out.." comment on an otherwise blank screen. I have contacted the webmaster who says that I am the only one with this problem. My neighbour who uses MS Edge has no trouble in displaying the website. He uses the same ISP as I do but uses Windows 11.

The webmaster says that it might be that I am using Windows 7 64bit and that Firefox cannot handle this particular website. Alternatively he suggested that my ISP was the cause of the problem although I have been using the current ISP for over 20 years and have never had this type of problem.

I have three computers all with Windows 7 and Firefox and they all have the same problem.

Is there any help available for me as the information on the "website" is important and I do not wish to have to go to my neighbour to view the website?

I am using Bookworm 12.5.0 Debian with KDE current and Firefox 115.8.0esr long-term version. All appear current. Spiral Linux is the effective shortcut to the Debian loading in its simplified installation. Firefox opens fine, but the field of display cannot be controlled well. I can use Ctl + 0 to somewhat manage, but otherwise any cursor movement sees the display go crazy. Trying to get the cursor over any point is simply impossible. I am using a different computer now to post this with the virtually identical software. This Intel pad differs from the Beelink Ryzen unit which is the unit going berserk. Is there anything that you can tell me other than the Ctl+0 to modify the operation of the unit. I had swapped out the monitor on the Beelink though I have no idea that the monitor is the problem as I do not have the same issue withDiscover or the desktop or any of the other software. I can open up Konsole and use that or open up OpenOffice or OfficeLibre with no similar issue. Would a different monitor act like that?

I have a PC with Windows 7 64b that I have updated after having synchronized with two laptops and one Android. After that Firefox works on all the units except the PC. On that I can see all Firefox shortcuts and Firefox account. But when I try to connect to a web place the screen is blank. I have also tried to sut down the computer and start again. No change. RAM memory is okay, storage on unit C: is a bit small and the CPU is Intel Core i5 3470@ 3,2GH instead of Pentium 4 and 4GH. Should I go back to an older version of Firefox that is not som demanding or is there someting else I can fix?

the last url in moz_places in places.sqlite are not the same as in my history tab I posted here

Here is my `last-url.sh`

My script keeps giving me wrong answer. For exemple, a stackoverflow.com url instead of the youtube.com one even if i reload the page.

I have only one `xxxxxx.default-esr` profile.

Screenshot examples: the "google test" is a brand new visited url, and the others were refreshed pages

I can't get to my gmail account if I go to firefox as a search and enter the single word GMAIL. Before anything else is entered, I end up at my wife's account. Why should that be and how to get to any other email account. I have the same problem with CROME except there it appears to be bound to MY account - the word GMAIL must trigger some fixed, prior established, link that was not intended. The fixed link in Firefox predates 115. I rarely use CROME. The Firefox linkage was very strange, but I mostly accessed MY account via Thunderbird until this also looked like a problem. Is there a way to break this fixed linkage? Thank you

Looking at your guesses, it is 115.8.1 according to my inspection, W7 is correct.

I'm running FF 115.8.0esr on MacOS High SIerra 10.13.6. (desktop). I generally sleep the computer rather than shutting down each day.

The problem - If I have restarted the computer or restarted FF, I can play video and audio OK. Mostly I will find that I can still play for a day or so (even having slept the computer). Then they stop. Opening a new window or a private window doesn't help, the only solution is to restart FF or the computer. All the while, I can get the same video/audio to play on Safari, and Apple iTunes is fine too. It doesn't matter what the source is - YT, Spotify BBC iPlayer, BBC Sounds and so on.

Would really like some help on this!
