Firefox doesn't load pages with high RAM usage

Hi all!

I've been experiencing this problem for quite some time (≈1.5 years) and have finally decided to speak up, since it seems like either the team hasn't solved this bug yet or no one else experiences this.

Every so often, while browsing, pages will stop loading and the error, "Server not found," appears. The trigger seems to be a high-ish amount of RAM use, about 1GB. This happens every couple days if I don't open too many tabs with high RAM use (e.g. YouTube, NYT, etc.) or every couple hours if I'm browsing heavily! Refreshing and/or clearing cache have no effect. Only restarting Firefox (starting RAM use is ≈350 MB) allows me to load pages again—annoying if I fill out a long form, click "Next", and have to start all over again because the next screen doesn't load. This issue frustrates enough that I've finally decided to give Chrome another go (gasp!) and surprisingly, no niggles yet.

I'm on the latest version of Firefox on Windows 7 Pro x64. Hardware: Intel Core i5-2500K, 12GB RAM, 128GB SSD, AMD ATI 5850 Series. Internet connection is perfect at 20Mbps and other browsers run well even when Firefox doesn't. I've tried un- and reinstalling, starting with a new profile (syncing only bookmarks), and even deleting my %appdata% folder to try anew. As you can see, it's quite frustrating and time-consuming!

I'd love to keep Firefox as my primary browser—its customizability and design are the main draws. Any help much appreciated!

Thanks, vinging

Hi. I have a annoying problem with firefox. I dont know in how conditions, firefox begin to flash, the pictures, videos and words are upset, I can not see anything on the screen. If I reset firefox works great. To more easily understand I made a gif image. https://mega.nz/#!2NJFzTAB!uVMlMKqcS0QqvS3q2I1YxAUgrQ5X5F3SrdHyPEk_RZg

Hello all! It seems recently I have been having some major issues with Firefox. Namely the fact that, when playing video, the CPU usage goes through the roof. What could be causing this and what can I do to fix this? I appreciate any help anyone has to offer.

This has been happening for a couple of months now. Firefox has been crashing ever so often, and because it usually happens when flash content is being run; i.e., a video or a web game. Another reason that leads me to believe this is Flash is that before I had this problem, flash would eat up my CPU, and I would be peaking at 100%! Another problem that I am having right now: I can't have two Flash things actively running at the same time, or else Flash will crash, for example, a video and a game. Ads don't seem to crash Flash as often, but it will sometimes happen, especially if there is a lot of moving content. Anyways, you can look at some crash logs to try and figure out what is happening with my issues.

With hardware acceleration turned on I get weird artifacting on the Youtube timeline (see image), it looks like white noise in the real world since the image doesn't show all of them. Without the acceleration the artifacting disappears. Only noticed this on Youtube. In rare cases it used to crash the display driver after switching videos, but I have not experienced this for some time now.

I am running Intel graphics on a Lenovo T450s. Drivers are updated.

FF uses 100+ CPU on my otherwise totally fast up-to-date MacBook. This, despite doing all the fixes suggested, repeatedly.

It has gotten so bad that it constantly overheats my Mac, causes my fan to go on full blast non-stop, even when it's in the background, so I basically have to stop using it.

Mozilla needs to get serious and overhaul this heavy-use browser.

Hi!

In Firefox 38 and later (also tried 43) I examine a really high CPU usage while playing Youtube videos in HTML5 mode. A simple 360p video takes 30-34% CPU in v43, and 56-65% in fullscreen mode.

Firefox 34 works much better here: it consumes 18-25% in both general and fullscreen modes. And even less (just about 8-17% when the video buffering is complete). Firefox 29 works a little worse, but still much better than the new versions.

I have Windows 7 x86 and an nvidia graphics card, so https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1077259 should not apply especially since older versions work just fine. I should also note that I am using a fairly weak PC for testing this (2GB ram, old Athlon II CPU), yet again older versions never caused any troubles.


I also noticed that in v43 videos from Youtube don't keep buffering until 100% anymore. While completing buffering reduces CPU usage in 34 much, it doesn't seem to have this effect in 38.

It didn't start until the last update. I'm on Mac Snow Leopard and I tried turning off extensions. I have nothing else open, no other software except utility (to confirm its FF sucking the RAM). I have 1 or 2 tabs open. And yet it's sucking over half my RAM! I don't normally need that much and therefore haven't bothered to upgrade. No way I should need to up the RAM JUST for a browser with no extensions on and only 1 or 2 tabs open! What is going on here?

Firefox (latest version, 43.0.4) is causing my HDD to run between 98% and 100% all the time and making heavy CPU demands too, fluctuating between 30% and 70% CPU being used by Firefox. I've tried clearing my cache and cookies etc. No change. And I've tried starting Firefox in Safe Mode. Again no change.

Tried disabling my Internet Security software (McAfee). Again no change.

Google Chrome doesn't do this and Microsoft Edge doesn't do this, so it's definitely associated with Firefox.

Running a PC with Windows 10 (64-bit Pro version 1511 with all subsequent updates installed).

After stopping Firefox in Windows Task Manager everything returns to normal. (0% HDD usage and 4% CPU usage.)

Help!

Hello all! For the past few weeks, Firefox seems to be a large CPU hog. It uses around 30-50% of the CPU for seemingly no reason. I have ADBlock off (As you can see) There are only two tabs open (I am running Opera as well) I've cleared the cache, I've refreshed the download of Firefox as well. Could someone give me any other suggestions?

I can easily find web pages that will drive my Windows XP system to 100% CPU usage. My Task Manager shows Firefox sucking up 97%-98% of the CPU. Then I minimize the Firefox window expecting the Firefox CPU usage to drop to near 0%. But no. Firefox continues to use nearly 100% of the CPU in activities that I cannot see ... because the Firefox window is minimized. This does not make sense to me. Everyone knows the minimized Firefox window is just servicing adWare.

I have a problem with high CPU usage only when watching videos. When I use I.E. 9 watching the same video, it will drop from about 100% usually to 56% (cook's country.com for example). I believe this is a browser problem. I use Firefox as a primary browser & would like to know what may be causing the high usage as the videos will not "work" as well as they should. I feel that if the CPU usage was a little lower, I would not have any problem viewing the videos as what it does is start & stop constantly, and that is very aggravating to me.

Thank you in advance
