Multi-Account Containers pegging CPU

I noticed that recently, several of my machines (all logged into the same FF account) are experiencing pretty extreme performance penalties, and when on battery, the battery drains very quickly. Within the Windows Task Manager, I see that FF is often taking up 50%+ CPU even though I'm using fewer tabs than usual. Within `about:performance`, I see that Multi-Account Containers is the resource hog.

On another machine where I am not logged in, FF performance is pretty good. On the affected machines, Edge runs very fast with low CPU/memory use, so there's definitely an issue with FF on these machines.

About:config shows that extensions.experiments.enabled=false, and the Containers plugin hasn't been updated in 2.5 months.

I would prefer to not uninstall containers since they're so useful. I could clobber and reinstall them for testing, but is there a known issue or a quick fix for this?

Hey y'all,

So last week I opened up Firefox and half the websites wouldn't load. I would click on my bookmarks or type in the URL and nothing would come up. It refused to even attempt to get on the page, nothing would come up. The page would be blank. My extensions weren't working, either, and some websites had logged me out. So the solution I found via Support was to do a Refresh.

I did that and everything worked great again. My bookmarks and tabs were saved, I just had to fiddle with my extensions and theme.

Now, only a week later, Firefox is having the same problem. Websites not loading, extensions not working. I'm using the latest version on Windows 10, so that can't be the issue. Do I just Refresh and hope it doesn't happen a third time? Doing a weekly Refresh would be such a nightmare.

I love Firefox, especially because of the extensions, but that's the only thing I can think of that's causing this issue. I don't have that many and I don't want to get rid of them - they make using the internet bearable.

Thanks~

Not sure what happened. None of my extensions work. Some don't even load a drop-down menu like they used to, my password manager is broken. Ublock origins says there is nothing to block when there clearly is plenty to block on the page, etc. I use the exact same extensions in Chrome and Chrome still doesn't break when using extensions. When was the last major FF update?

I checked my addons and installed programs and can't find anything unexpected.

I have scanned with Malwarebytes and Windows Security and they can't find anything.

I haven't captured a screenshot, will do so next time it happens.

Hello!

I have been using an add-on to download certain live broadcasted video. It did this by downloading the audio and the video as separate files, that I then put together outside of Firefox. I don't know if this is the right place to ask but since I can't get any further than the first step this time I thought I'd start here.

The add-on no longer works so I thought I'd open the "Inspect Element" page, go to "Network" and leave it open with the live video playing. There were lots of small files loading in, ending in .m4a and .m4v. Too many sort and download manually so I tried right clicking and hit "Save All As Har"

So now I got a .har file of around 100 MB and I wonder if this has those small pieces that I can do something with? Thanks

Using Firefox Portable (call it ONE), just updated to 74. T T blinks about every 2 seconds, and the groups are not shown. Tree Style Tabs works okay, but there is no toolbar or groups on T S T. I uninstalled T T and re-installed, no change. A firefox update and a windows 10 update happened just before I noticed this, don't know if they are related.

Downloaded another portable installation file (call it it TWO), and added T T. No Blinking, and toolbar and groups are there. Any ideas on how I can make it work in ONE? All help appreciated. Thanks!

I created a custom theme using a picture from online through Firefox Colors. Whenever I log out of Firefox browser, I have to go to Firefox colors in order for me to get that custom theme to show by going under my saved themes. When I try to export, it just makes me open it in a picture program on my computer. I can't keep this sucker enabled as it seems Firefox doesn't want to save and apply it. I have gone all over the settings about light, dark, and other themes. Nothing should be causing this. Uninstalling the Firefox Colors, reinstalling it, and redoing the ENTIRE theme all over again has only resulted in it not being saved and me going through Firefox Colors every time just to get the theme I want.

I first disabled the add-on, then removed it, then uninstalled Firefox and installed it again (restarting my computer at each operation). The problem is not solved. The message I get that there is an error loading the page - as if there was no internet connection.

An update to Firefox disabled RoboForm. When trying to manage extensions in Firefox settings, there is no option to enable this extension. Is there a problem with RoboForm? Or another way to re-enable? (I am not trying to view a toolbar at bottom of page, just over enable the extension.)

Firefox says at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-update-add-ons, "Check for Updates: Allows you to check for any updates to your add-ons manually. If there is an update available, you have the option to choose to update it now or later." I don't see that option. I can install all updates now or not. How can I install selectively? And (since Firefox does not seem to reveal the versions of the add-ons I'm using), how can I be sure whether a particular add-on I'm using is already up-to-date?

I have a 64-bit HP laptop, running Windows 10 Home, with 12 gig memory, and 2T hard drive.

Is this going to be an ongoing problem every time Firefox installs an Update???? I have better things to do with my time than beat my head against a wall with these SAME continual problems.

I went to your support page (it also shows at the top of this page) and it sent me to a URL that was supposed to fix this problem and I installed that version. Mozilla Firefox 67.0 (x64 en-US) I rebooted and it STILL does not work.

I'm really struggling to be nice here. You knew that this was a problem from some months ago and you let it happen again. OMG.

In trying to get this add-on to work, I've disabled my other two add-ons then I Removed and Re-installed this Add-on and still it does not work. The download button appears but when I click on it, nothing happens. So what gives, this time? Is there ever going to be a permanent fix? I'm in the middle of downloading 5 youtube files that should have been done this afternoon, and now it is almost 11pm and who knows when/if they will ever get downloaded. I've wasted hours of my life on this! And you guessed it, it still does not work.
