FireFox opening excess windows and using over 1/2 of memory, reset Firefox or remove and reinstall? Firefox opens 9 or more windows when startup on msn.com. Sometimes it freezes when it uses up all memory, 8 GB. I have not emptyed cookies in quite a while and I have not refreshed FireFox 94.0.2. Please provide detailed instructions in English to fix.

You get 9 separate popup windows when you open MSN? Do you have the popup blocker enabled? See: Pop-up blocker settings, exceptions and troubleshooting.

Have you tried disabling this extension:

MSN Homepage (id: {ff5a3a9f-9fba-4335-a208-c85db15056e5})

You can view, disable, and often remove unwanted or unknown extensions on the Add-ons page. Either:

  • Ctrl+Shift+a (Mac: Command+Shift+a)
  • "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons
  • type or paste about:addons in the address bar and press Enter/Return

In the left column of the Add-ons page, click Extensions. On the right side, find the "Manage Your Extensions" heading.

If there is at least one extension before the next heading -- "Recommended Extensions" -- please continue:

Then cast a critical eye over the list below that heading. Any extensions Firefox installs for built-in features are hidden from this page, so everything listed here is your choice (and your responsibility) to manage. Try disabling that extension by clicking its slider switch. Do see anything suspicious or that you just do not remember installing or why? If in doubt, disable (or remove). For your privacy and security, don't let mystery programs linger here.

Any improvement?

If you want MSN as your home page, here's how you set that: How to set the home page.
