For about the last month I have seen my Firefox browser get very slow. I also see for a brief time, a message at the top that says "Firefox not responding" when I access a web site. This message at the top of my screen window only lasts for a short time, and then disappears. I would appreciate any help and suggestions that may help my problem. Thank you.

When I navigate to www.pcmag.com on my Surface Book 2. FF will hang or crash. I do not have this problem with other browsers on my laptop. Is this a known bug or do I need to update something.

I am running the latest FF version with default settings, the only add-on is BitWarden.

This is a fresh install (I uninstalled and removed all folders and registry entries before reinstalling). Ive run scans for infections.

Firefox is very slow to bring up pages (30 seconds minimum) while IE and Chrome are normal.

When I close FF, the firefox.exe process doesnt' close for 3 to 5 minutes ad then I get a "Firefox crashed" message.

I'm seeing this on a ton of machines (7 and Vista).

Please help!

After starting Firefox, Sync starts and gets stuck on "Syncing" till I restart. Ever page shows as bookmarked for a while and then they all turn into not bookmarked. Backups won't be saved. Changes to bookmarks and adding new ones won't work either. Have tried a new profile, deleting xulstore.json and places.sqlite and have also tried safe-mode and all of them together. The sync is still in a loop. I have about 56000 bookmarks(I know that's a lot!) but it didn't use to take more than a few seconds. And not being able to see the last sync time by hovering really sucks as well btw.

Recently Firefox has become nearly unusable. Opening links are *_sluggish_*... They eventually complete but it's annoying - I've switched back to brave for now. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1175357 seems to be the exact same issue however nothing in the thread resolved my problem.

I'd like to stay with Firefox but it's not worth it at this time. :(

Any thoughts/help are much appreciated.

For the past few months or so, Firefox has become completely unusable for me. About every five minutes or so, the browser freezes, and I have to kill the process in order to re-launch it. I've tried clean uninstall/reinstall, removing all add-ons, etc. Nothing seems to work. I've installed it on 4 of my computers, and it freezes on all of them (Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows 7 Professional, and Windows 10).

Has anybody had any luck fixing the instability, or am I just stuck with Chrome?

I went back to beta. Worked for a couple days. Now an update came in: BAM! same thing! Now I have 2 broken Firefoxes on my PC.

Not even running the Profile manager worked!!

In the past weeks, suddenly my Firefox started behaving really weird - a few times a day the currently opened tab becomes unresponsive (you can't click or hover anything) but you can still scroll through them (at least a bit - after that point, it's just plain white). At these times, the cursor is the hand one, during the whole unresponsiveness episode, as if everything was clickable (though obviously clicking does nothing). You also can't close the tab during this tab - the only way is either to wait a good 30 seconds for it to unfreeze or to change to a different tab and close the unresponsive one. When you do change tabs, though, the newly opened tab sometimes disappears completely, with a radial loading circle appearing in the middle of the screen for a few seconds before it magically reappears (it does _not_ reload, though!). From what I've been able to observe, this tends to appear on content-heavy websites like Reddit, Facebook and YouTube most often.

What is happening? I haven't changed my browsing habits in the past weeks, nor have I installed any new add-ons. I've tried disabling the ones I have but it's still happening with them turned off. What else may I try?

Firstly, I want to say right away that the problem arose with the release of the 57th version, that is, Quantum. Until the 57th version everything was fine. And also I want to say that this problem does not exist in other browsers. The problem manifests itself in this case: If you open the site of the dns-shop.ru or technopoint.ru store and, without waiting for the page to fully load, click on any item on the page, for example, on the left, select the directory partition, then the whole browser hangs. In this case, the browser stops responding to any pressing in the interface and generally does not react to anything, except for the completion of the process in the task manager. That is, I open the task manager and find there a process of firefox that uses almost all the resources of the CPU. After that, I end the process and firefox starts to work and writes that the "tab has dropped" (image # 3) I noticed the same problem on other sites, in particular youtube, vk, fb. Also, with fast transitions between site pages or streaming video, the browser may hang and the CPU load immediately 90-100%. Tried it on a completely clean firefox, on a freshly installed one, it ran without add-ons. All the same. I have to use google chrome until it's fixed ...

Whenever I am using Fire Fox after about 20-30 minutes the menus (even the main menu icon), function pop-ups (e.g. click on the print icon to get the print pop-up asking number of copies, click on a download icon to get the pop-up asking destination), etc. stop working. This happens all the time independent of what site(s)/tab(s) I have open at the time. Tabs still work (a new tab will open). Sometimes I am actively using Fire Fox at the time, other times it is open but not my active window (in this scenario when I return to make it the active window again I find that the problem has occurred). Once in a while it will try to open something that generates an error message (NS_ERROR_FAILURE):

JS frame … contentCache … js::ObjLayerActionGoToNewWindow::line 7 data:no

In this case it was trying to open a survey window at the end of a course I had just completed. Most of the time I don't see an error message - just an audible ding and nothing happens.

When this problem occurs I have to completely restart Fire Fox to clear the problem - for another 20 minutes.

I've tried clearing the browsing history, turning off hardware acceleration, making sure pop-ups are enabled, and installing the latest version of Fire Fox (63.0.1). I'm not sure what else to try.

My laptop is Windows 10. According to Fire Fox these are the installed plug ins: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. Shockwave Flash

Thought problem was just on MyPoints when viewing videos but occurred yesterday at InBoxDollas while playing a game.

    • 9/15 - Attached is one of the video screens with the website slowing...... In this group Postables - almost all had this come up. Sometimes just froze there & when I refreshed screen this ... website slowing.... came up & I had to StopIt for video to continue. {Often the screen would be Black as attached shows, sometimes black with an x in the middle so I refreshed}**

Last night I deleted History (except for personal.). Opened MyPoints this morning & went to Postables where half or more of the videos had this popup line stating Website slowing...... & I had to keep clicking on StopIt. I went to the video in image I added but the 2nd from there had this popup - slowing website.... So I guess deleting history helped some perhaps - but is still there. {Searched last night & all the ideas/thoughts listed to stop this went back to 2016. Before deleting History, I went to registry & searched for Firefox Pioneer and also Shockware - None were found.

After powering up my computer, or completely shutting down firefox, it takes about 25 seconds for firefox to start (blank page displayed) then another 25 seconds to load. I have tried all of the options in help section (re-installed, reset, cleared extensions, changed start up page, etc.) but nothing helps. No problems with Chrome nor Internet Exploder, they both start up and load instantly. 64 bit Windows 7 professional, Intel i7-7700K CPU at 4.2GHz, 32GB Ram, GTX 1080 video card, MVMe boot. This machine is a screamer, except for Firefox. Also have a very slow Thunderbird but it is not nearly as bad as firefox.

Hi all, I'm using a MSI GF62-7RD laptop running Windows 10 64-bit, latest Firefox version (59.0.2 64-bit). For the last few weeks Firefox on my laptop has been taking years to load almost all web pages, while Internet Explorer on those same occasions was able to load the same pages in good time. The annoying thing is that Firefox on my desktop (Windows 7) is not similarly afflicted. And to make matters even stranger, my laptop when using other internet connections (at friends' houses etc.) is able to use Firefox without the speed issues I get at home.

This problem was also present intermittently on my last laptop (also MSI with the same OS), but now it seems to be a permanent state of affairs. I have variously in the past tried disabling accessibility services, refreshing Firefox, and doing a complete re-install (including deleting all Mozilla folders in the user's Appdata folder). Nothing seems to help....

I had my usual "several" (probably 3 to 5) Firefox windows/tabs open ... and Microsoft decided to send an update to my Windows 7 box.

I observed Firefox memory use rise rapidly to nearly 800MB ... while netsvcs.exe did approximately the same thing. (This machine has 2GB of RAM.)

Fortunately I had Windows Performance Monitor running, and was able to determine that Windows Update was the competing activity ... and after-the-fact, determined that it had been installing an update to MS Security Essentials (basically a malware signature update - and I have the ID of the specific update, but since it is a security update, I'm hesitant to post that detail in a quasi-public forum). Usually, such updates install quickly and transparently. I also cannot tell, with confidence, whether the memory consumption was from the process of installing the signature - or the process of scanning for malware presence after the sig was installed (although I'd *guess* the latter). I believe both of those aspects execute within netsvcs.exe.

This happened over a period of approximately an hour, during which about all I could do was "sniff around" to identify the culprits; eventually I killed the Firefox process (hoping that its History feature would allow me to return to my open tabs... which was not quite true).

I have reported the event to Microsoft as well, as it could equally be their problem.

Suggestion: Add instrumentation to Firefox to capture data on sudden increases in RAM use - paying particular attention to outside-the-norm values, in relatively short time periods (minutes, not hours) that do not self-resolve ... and consider whether Firefox can be more aggressive at releasing memory it has "claimed," when things go bad.

(Perhaps collect high-level "physical memory available" data when things begin to "go bad," and capture the "footprint" of Firefox memory use... And perhaps add intelligence to log memory allocation failures somewhere. I don't know with certainty if the issue was fragmentation, or the sheer amount requested, but experience and grey-hair lead me to suspect the former. The only Firefox window/tab that I know might have been a high-memory-consumer was a moderate-sized Google Map covering an urban area of several dozen square miles, so it was a complex image.)

Not suggesting this is Firefox's "fault" -- clearly, both processes were "to blame" in the sense that they didn't handle the situation well... but Firefox might handle it better.

I've seen (and reported) quite a series of memory-utilization issues since 28.0 ... perhaps it's time for a "tiger team" to look into these.

AH - one other detail: I keep Firefox pinned to the Windows task bar, and when it starts, it asks me which profile I want to use (of about 5 choices). When restarting Firefox after identifying all the above... I found that it no longer asked me to choose a profile, and the profile it opened was clearly NOT my most-common profile, which includes (e.g.) all my most-common, site-specific login information. I had to mess around for several minutes to get this profile "back" up and running, and I did not make note of what I tried during that effort.

Mozilla drains so much ram even with a few tabs open on windows 10

Hi dear developers and people who help other people in this forum, I'm Kristian, an old user of Mozilla and since I have installed mozilla of quantum project on my laptop with windows 10, I have notice on the task manager that mozilla drains a lot of ram even with a few tabs open ( Let's say 7). Well my concern is because with Google Chrome (I know that is offensive to compare) I have open more than 30 tabs and its ram consumption is understanble to be higher, nevertheless is really close to mozilla ( Lets say 1GB of RAM). I tried to run mozilla on safe mode with no addons but I get the same result. I tried reduce the content process limit to 2 (4 by default) but again, the RAM consumption still high. I reinstall mozilla, but unfortunately nothing changes. Im the only one with this trouble? Any ideas of what it can be? The mozilla version what Im using is 60 x64 and windows 10 x64 Thanks in advance ps: I attach an image to prove what I wrote
