Firefox crashes after using up 22GB of memory on my Win 7 (64) PC

Firefox has crashed my Win 7 (64) Ultimate by maxing out my 22GB RAM for a few weeks now; Chrome has zero issues. What is the excuse? There is no reason why open tabs in the background should be consuming resources, especially even after closing them, yet the Firefox browser is a memory hog beyond reasonable explanations. My RAM is working properly, and I have virtual memory as well which apparently makes no difference in this issue.

 The suspicion is growing, that Ffox is doing something but I can't figure out what. When I had only 8GB RAM in the same PC the issue never came up, so I would appreciate it if posters not working in IT would refrain from adding foolish comments, like this is normal, expected, etc. If I were using high end photo editing software at the same time as audio engineering editing, I could expect this to be an issue. Running a browser to view online info should require a fraction of that kind of memory. What gives?
Past postings indicate this is not a new issue, yet responses show little real info of merit in addressing what appears to be a pervasive problem.

I'll propose it here for the first time. I am a smartphone I don't have it, but can you register it with firefox as one of the security things you don't have? Because the browser constantly asks me to sign up for my android. Is it mysterious? I don't have an i-phone or another smartphone. Would this support be proof that someone is accessing it using my account? There have been a lot of suspicious accesses to my PC these days, and no matter how hard I try, I can't prevent it. So I have a suggestion for you. I want you to increase the hardness of security by registering that firefox users do not have smartphones. That way, you can block suspicious access to my PC and not feel uncomfortable. Can you know how unpleasant I am? I live in Japan. My PC terminal is connected to the corporate terminal of Osaka City Hall. Before I knew it. I just used Osaka City Hall for work! I don't live in this city. This criminal is probably using android. Register that the user does not have a smartphone and block from these things

Would you like to do it?

Thank you for reading.

Can anyone help me. Thanks Annie

I don't know quite how to explain the problem I keep having. After upgrading to 91.0 ESR, the problem I had with regular Firefox has happened once again. The problem I keep having is that the browser will stretch like it's going into Full Screen for a second, snap back, and then stretch up again before freezing and crashing entirely, that is, if it doesn't hold on the fake fullscreen and turn off my monitor, making me have to restart my PC entirely.

I also notice that this newest version freezes more than usual overall.

Can someone explain what the problem is and how to fix it, or if Mozilla's going to fix it in the next update?

Thank you!

Any suggestions?

Firefox have closed to all Feeback. I just wanted to tell them the reasons that after being loyal to Mozilla I think since 1995 I finally switched to Goggle Chrome next year. There newest version was just awful. Incredibly slow, glitchy one of the worst things and worst decisions was to get rid of Remind Fox and add on that I found unbelivably helpful and they just decided to discontinue it and there is nothing else like it other adds on just don't do the same stuff my son loved it too. And lastly there are addons to help hearing impaired users on Chrome and Firefox doesn't even have a single one. It is also just insanely slow to load now. The new version was a tremendous downgrade.

Until recently, I was able to type in the search bar that appears in the middle of the page whenever I'm at the Firefox home page, but now any time I try to type or paste anything there, it automatically puts it in the address bar at the top. I can click on that bar, and a blinking cursor appears, indicating that I should be able to type there, but it still puts everything in the address bar. This only happens with that page, and nowhere else. Why is it doing this, and how to I make it stop doing that?

I have a Mac desktop. A couple of days ago, the look of my internet totally changed. The look of websites changed also. For instance, when I do a search there is a box around each and every result. The look of websites I regularly visit has changed also. For instance, Twitter has lines and boxes around posts now. My banking website looks totally different also. When I switch over to the Safari browser, everything looks normal like it used to. So, I assume the problem is with Firefox. Does anyone know what is going on?

Hi, For a couple weeks now I have been trying to sign in to AOL Mail online and after entering my username to begin the sign in and "enter" I notice a window stating something about checking to see I'm not a robot but then I get a message "Uh-Oh, We can’t sign you in right now. Please try again in a while." I don't have this same issue when I try to log in via Chrome. In fact I don't even have a Captcha there? I have tried clearing history with everything to start fresh again but it didn't make any difference. Is there a setting I somehow need to change with this new update to get it working as before?

Thank you for your time and assistance with this.
