# Ubuntu garbage data increases exponentially
## Intro and context

Hello. I am a power user that works in software and web development. I have been using Firefox on and on for most my life, but full time as my main browser since late 2018. One thing I love Firefox for is its lightness on memory compared to that of Google Chrome, and also its open web standards, open source, privacy, ethical owners, and customizations. I have been using Windows 10 up until July 9th 2020 before I switched to my first main Linux desktop. I have always kept my eye on CPU and RAM usage, as high CPU drains battery and running out of RAM results in a system crash. I actively keep many tabs open (less than 100 but more than 60) I ensure that they are light. I mostly have GitHub tabs open, but I keep a few other things open as well, mostly Wikipedia/wiktionary and duckduckgo tabs, a pcloud (file service) tab, but sometimes a youtube tab or two (rarely a reddit tab)

## Issue

I have been noting that garbage collection is getting exponentially worse over time. When I got my laptop, I was able to keep 2-3 fully packed profiles open at all times, and never having to close Firefox until shutdown (after about 12-16 hours uptime) I rely heavily on Firefox profiles for organization. It has been getting exponentially worse. Starting in late 2020, I had to reduce the max number of open profiles to 2, and in 2021. In early January, I had to start closing the profiles once a day to free up 2-3+ GiB of RAM (swap doesn't change much, that is the garbage data that isn't being cleared, it normally ends up at 800 MiB to 1.7 GiB by the end of the day) and now (as of January 22nd 2021) I have to close Firefox 2-3 times a day to prevent my system from getting overloaded, as Firefox eats through 1-2 gigabytes of RAM per hour, even when idle. I have noticed several processes titled `web content` that use 200-600 MiB each (there is usually 2-7 of them) I am wondering what I can do for Firefox to prevent high RAM usage. For reference, here is my main profile in idle mode:

Mozilla is refusing to let me upload images right now, so I will link them

Here is my usual 2nd profile in idle mode:

https://github.com/seanpm2001/seanpm2001/blob/master/FFTechSupport/Jan22/MProfile2_Idle_1.22.2021.png

Here is the RAM and SWAP usage before my 2nd refresh today (uptime: 8 hours 46 minutes)

https://github.com/seanpm2001/seanpm2001/blob/master/FFTechSupport/Jan22/FF_GF_Open_1.22.2021.png

And here it is with Firefox and Nautilus closed (I forgot about nautilus before getting the first 2 pics, it uses a lot of memory depending on its usage):

https://github.com/seanpm2001/seanpm2001/blob/master/FFTechSupport/Jan22/FF_GF_Closed_1.22.2021.png

I have lately suspected that GitHub may have gotten heavier, or is sending too much data via AJAX methods, but I am not entirely sure.

    1. System specs

Device: `Dell XPS 13 9XXX`

Operating system: `Ubuntu 20.04 (Focal Fossa)`

Linux Kernel version: `5.4.0-48-generic`

Processor type: `Intel Core i5 10th generation`

Processor specs: `Intel® Core™ i5-1035G1 CPU @ 1.00GHz × 8`

Processor mode: `x64`

Desktop environment: `GNOME 3.36.1`

Windowing system: `X Desktop environment 11`

Memory: `7.4 GiB (8 GB)`

SWAP file: `2.0 GiB`

Firefox version: `84.0.1` - I haven't updated in a while due to fear of memory increase and instability

Number of Firefox profiles: `61` - no new profiles created since December 26th 2020

I am wondering what I should do about this. I work with hundreds of projects, so I can't close too many tabs, as it becomes hard to access and manage. I intend to close 16 tabs in the next month, as I am freeing up some projects.

Running Firefox 82.0.3 on MacOS 11.0.1 (Big Sur) -

If I go to full screen mode with Firefox, and then let my cursor get to close to the top of the window, it activates the dop-down of the menu bar. That's supposed to happen. But the bar is blank (the menu bar items appear above it), and hides tabs. And sliding my cursor away, the bar does not go away. Stuck. And can't resize Facebook to regular view to get rid of it. Need to close it and start over.

Thoughts?

With Gmail open in Firefox browser, when I start typing the name of the addressee in the TO field, many addressees will not autocomplete, even though they are properly saved in my Gmail contacts list. I looked for common solution for this ... and found: use different browser. I did, and MS Edge works just fine. Is there a setting in Firefox that will fix this?

Hello,

I had this problem mostly on 1 site across multiple Windows installs. But now it happens on multiple sites. Text overlap each other. I Am using Windows 10 Pro 20H2, Firefox Last stable with only UBlock addon.

I tried: even troubleshoot mode didn't help!

- changing/flushing dns didn't help (heard dns could cause that)

Any idea why is this happening. It doesn't look like site issue, since recently it happened multiple times!

WidevinCdm crashes. I have submitted multiple crash reports but not sure if any went through. There was no pop-up window or any field to describe the problem like what the 'Learn more..' link says when the crash occurs.


I have already seen other reports of this problem (e.g. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1334218 )


Crash seen on:

Firefox 78.10.0 Mac OS 10.9.5 (Can't upgrade further on existing HW)


I don't like the recommendation on the above URL to install an older version of Firefox. We never tell anyone to go back to old versions of our SW if the bug is created by the new version. For me, the crashes started right AFTER I upgraded Firefox to 78.10.0. I was watching CBS shows. So the crash has a definite connection to the Firefox upgrade. I haven't changed anything else on my MacBook. I had no problem watching the shows on previous versions of Firefox.

To reproduce the crash, try to watch a "free" CBS show ( e.g. https://www.cbs.com/shows/fbi/ ). No subscription needed for a few episodes available for free.

When trying to paste text in a message window this message pops up:

"Because of your browser security settings, the editor is not able to access your clipboard data directly. You are required to paste it again in this window."

I have no idea why and have looked all over the FF settings for something to change, but no luck.

I'm also suddenly having problems with TamperMonkey not running scripts even though it shows they are enabled.

I was able to past directly into the "Plugins" window below.

Win7 Pro, I'm the only user on PC.

Thanks.

When i watch the stream with 120 FPS, i got "skipped flames" and the video stops for a moment, at the same time, everything is fine in the Edge (no freezes and 0 skipped flames)

I detected recently a change in behaviour that is annoying me quite a bit. I do not know where to change such behaviour. It concerns examples such as :

A link like "file://path_to_some_folder" used to open Windows Explorer and now opens a new tab.

A link like "thunderlink://blahblah" used to open the associated application just like that. Now it first opens a new tab before doing so. Leaves me with lots of unnecessary tabs (only having "thunderlink://..." in their titlebar).

I assume it is the one or the other default setting that changed, but I cannot figure out how to restore the original behaviour.

Firefox Browser 89.0b6 (64-bit) Developer Edition Windows 10 Pro 20H2 Build 19042.804 Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.551.0

I currently have two displays connected, the 2nd display is positioned above my primary display, the two displays are arranged as such in the Display settings.

With Firefox open on my primary display; if the window is Maximized, it extends several pixels beyond the top of the screen and onto the second display above.

If I go into Display settings and rearrange the displays so that Windows behaves as though the 2nd display was actually to the right of the primary display, maximized Firefox windows to do not extend onto the 2nd display.

From what I have observed (a handful of various browsers, notepad++, office applications, adobe reader, explorer, cmd, and other miscellaneous software), this seems to be specific to Firefox.

It appears to be that Firefox is drawing itself slightly beyond the top of the desktop when maximized.

It is enough to cover approximately the lower two thirds of the information in the 'status bar' area of the windows on the 2nd display.

Is this a known issue? Is there some a way to fix this? Is this somehow not an issue with Firefox despite it only happening with Firefox?

Any help is appreciated.
