20 GB RAM usage, pagefile takes up all space on C: - 300 tabs in Tree Tabs

First, this post is basically Congratulations for Firefox upon working almost flowlessly under this extreme heavy load without crashing. Saving/loading sessions works well. (which is unexpected but makes me _very_ happy :-)) Firefox exits properly without any exceptions, no matter how long it runs, or how many times the PC is sent to STR mode meanwhile.

Second, everything is fine, except RAM usage. No matter how many RAM is installed, Firefox takes up all of it after a few days of normal operation. I have recently upgraded my PC from 16 to 24 GB of RAM only for this sole reason to see if anything changes, but it did not produce any noticable change, except that it takes 5-7 days for Firefox to fill up all the RAM instead of the 3-4 days before. Disk space on C: drive was nullified by Firefox as the paging file went up to 50 GB.

I want to hunt down this thing. I have approx. 300 tabs, 2 addons, and Hardware Acceleration is disabled since otherwise Fox hangs several times a day (have to be killed from outside). Pics are attached. https://addons.mozilla.org/hu/firefox/addon/tree-tabs/ https://gitlab.com/kroppy/TreeTabs

I'd like to get suggestions where to start.

  1. Disabling or replacing the adblocker ?
  2. Inspecting memory usage on Process Manager (about:processes) and Task Manager (about:performance) pages ?
  3. Installing some external tools like Firemin ?

Please don't suggest neither safe mode nor disabling all addons, since that makes it impossible to reproduce this amount of load, which is the primary reason behind the symptom.

I PrtScr'ed Process Manager and Task Manager, see that RAM sizes per page are normal in Task Manager, but not in Process Manager (10 times more).

CPU usage is totally normal for this load, even when memory is in the heaven. See the TaskMan pic. (I suppose that's because of ad blocking)

Thanks for any ideas,

Peter B. (I'm PC enthusiast)

I've noticed that for the last few days, Firefox takes several seconds to start. I happened to look in settings while I have the spinning ball and waiting for it to start, and noticed that the "Checking for updates" is running. The moment that it verifies Firefox is up to date, my initial browser page opens with my default page. It looks like version 107 was installed on Nov 15th, which is just about the time I noticed this problem occurring.

Is there any fix for this or is that something I have to live with until enough people notice it as a problem and a new update is released? Using Windows 10 if that makes any difference.

Thanks for any help from any of you.

Hello there,

I installed Firefox with high expectation, and mostly it satisfied me but this issue: it cannot connect to the server at my portfolio website. Firefox apps on iPad, iPhone, and Android can. It only happens on the desktop Firefox on PC.

For your information, Firefox is allowed through Windows Defender Firewall.

Weirdly enough, it works immediately once I create a new Firefox profile. But the issue just comes back when I reboot my PC and start Firefox with the profile which worked one minute before. I have no idea what kind of glitch it is, but I thought anyone might know about it. Any suggestion?

Best regrads, HM

Titlebar and tabs missing in full screen mode (literally missing)

From time to time when maximising the Firefox window, the top 20-80 pixels or so are replaced with a white bar.

It is usually possible to grab the window by clicking somewhere next to the address field, and thereby move the window downwards, alt double clicking there which set the window to "not full screen".


Right-click in any of the "white" areas - which is located inside the FF window - opens the Windows desktop menu.

screenshot 1 - "not full screen" (all is fine) screenshot 2 - FF in full screen mode (title bar vanished - replaced by white space) screenshot 6 - right-click in white space opens Windows desktop menu

Found a few reports that seem similar but not identical to this one. Rebooting the computer usually helps but after a while the problem returns. It is a rather old machine, and quite possible that this is not caused by FF, however, only FF suffers from this behaviour - any other application works "normally" (i.e. you see the title bar and buttons when the window is maximised).

For last few weeks I am have trouble opening my browser after clicking on it several times. Some times I have to right click and select open from the drop down menu. I done the restore to the previous version, but did not help but did loose all my bookmarks and other personal setting, which has taken me a long time to fine tune to my personal likes, I am not happy about this. I do not have any trouble opening Microsoft Edge. If I can not get this fixed soon, I will switch to Google chrome. This has cost me a lot of frustration over the last several weeks and properly add to that once I get it fix, as I have lost all my personal setting. I am a 75 year old frustrated man. Thanks Gary

I'm on macOS's Firefox Developer Edition 108.0b3 right now (arm64/M1 CPU). Though my current version is a bit outdated, this problem appeared several months ago and still bothers me to this day.

When I, or any another application, opens a new link in Firefox, the browser _doesn't initiate the request_. So the address bar changes, new tab opens, but absolutely nothing happens afterwards, I'm just getting blank page. In order to get site opened, I have to click the address bar and press enter. Rarely, even that does not help and I have to press enter one more time again. The same applies to the basic links too - on this support website I practically had to click every link twice to get it opened. The click even is clearly registered: I see the :active state for a second. But afterwards, nothing happens, just like event got canceled in browser (clearly not JS error since it not only happens with links). It doesn't matter which site I'm using, where I am (even start page has this bug), and don't really seem to be connected to the extensions I'm using (recently I had high RAM usage by extension, and being unable to determine which extension uses RAM I disabled most of the untrusted extensions, which do not have cup icon given by Mozilla or not very popular), so I practically use _mostly_ clean Firefox now.

Before going full reset, I wonder if anyone happen to have the same issue?

afternoon, my keyboard is missing several keys so please bear with me. I have been having issues opening Tumblr in firefox for about a month now. I have been clearing my cache, i deleted all of my browser history and cookies to the beginning of time, and tumblr still hangs whenever i open it, going unresponsive until I forcequit from the task manager. sometimes, if I grab the scrollbar and get it away from the top of the page before it hangs, itll let me browse no issue, but most of the time it takes about 2 seconds to become hanging/unresponsive. I have not experienced this issue on any other site with the frequency that Tumblr experiences, and I cannot find any help desk information about a problem like this. I would really like to avoid moving to a different browser but its getting kind of insane how hard it is to live around it. if I have music/video going in the background, it will continue to play while Im forced to hang on tumblr, until I forcequit.

Everytime I try to close my Firefox browser window, it just stops. There are multiple processes taking in excess of 200 or 300K in memory that seem to be causing the problem. I have to manually end the process just to close Firefox, and it is quite annoying.

I just checked, my Firefox is up to date. Yesterday I deleted and re-installed Firefox, but it's still doing the same thing.

This is kind of driving me nuts to be honest. I have Chrome, Opera, and Edge also installed on my computer so I'm ready to jetisson Firefox but thought I'd see what the community has to say first.
