Leaving a single webpage open for an extended period of time causes progressively more memory usage to the point where Firefox becomes unresponsive

I've observed that leaving certain websites open seems to consume an ever-increasing amount of memory in Firefox over time. The large resource usage eventually causes my system to become unusably slow.

For example, I was keeping an eye on Firefox's internal task manager while reading this Encyclopaedia Britannica article. Initially, the page only used about 100 MBs of memory, but as I left the page open longer (~20 minutes) and scrolled down to load more content, it eventually grew to greater than 3 GBs. Since I only have 8 GBs of RAM available on my computer, this causes Firefox (and the computer itself) to become slow and unresponsive until I close the offending tab or Firefox altogether.

Encyclopaedia Britannica isn't the sole website I've observed this sort of high memory usage issue with, but I seem to be able to replicate the issue consistently with some longer articles. Could anyone confirm if they can replicate this behavior? I'm using a relatively new install of Windows 10 and Firefox (with no add-ons installed), but I'd much appreciate it if someone could confirm this isn't something specific to my computer.

I've attached an image of the Windows task manager showing the high RAM usage. I've also attached an image of Firefox's task manager after closing the tab using so much memory to demonstrate that I only have a couple other tabs open, and they are not resource intensive.

Assuming this is an issue with the website, would an AdBlocker or NoScript help to mitigate the resource usage?

Why so slow? Why such a memory hog?

I'm running the latest version of Firefox (80.0.1) on Windows 10 on a new computer with a fast processor and 8 MB of RAM. Yet browsing is often quite slow -- much slower than on Chrome -- and Task Manager shows that Firefox alone routinely uses 3.5-5 GB of memory. (Even writing this message is frustrating; I have to keep stopping and waiting for it to catch up.) At the moment I have 9 tabs open, most of them sites that don't auto-update. And no video. I find myself closing out of Firefox and restarting it periodically, which helps for awhile but is annoying.

Is it just me or is there a systemic problem here?

Hey There,

whenever the window is inactive and i want to scroll the site (with a touchpad swipe) it instead navigates forward or backward. ONLY when the window is inactive. the behavior is the same with horizontal and vertical swipes. I've tried disabling the feature like described here (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/915174) but i had no luck with that.

i'm using firefox 78.2. on an opensuse 15 laptop. thought i might be an issue with that but with chromium i dont have that issue

I am thoroughly fed up with FireFox and would like to have reasonable suggestions for an alternative. The main problem is that FF uses ever increasing resources the longer it runs even when there is no internet connection and I am not asking it to do anything. Between the various firefox invocations and HPPA_Main.exe, there comes to be very little resource for any desired activity. Then sometimes one of the firefox invocations grows endlessly (till I stop it or the system crashes), Then once with the installation of a new version (more and more new versions makes it impractical to keep up) the old profile was deleted (I watched the files disappear one by one) so I am always loosing things.

I am using MS Windows 7 and have 8 GB of ram but firefox will have allocated much more than that by the time it becomes unusable.

After updating to the newest version, I am getting a blank screen for several seconds before the browser loads up correctly. I have followed all steps to debug extensions, theme and hardware acceleration issues and even after uninstalling, removing my profile and reinstalling the problem will exist on a freshly untouched Firefox. Oddly if I load it up in Safe Mode, instead of showing a blank screen, the browser will simply take longer to load up, but the moment it opens, it is displayed correctly.

When I click on "open link in new tab", after right clicking on a link, FF does not open the link in a new tab. FF does nothing.

For Example, I opened a new window. Went to Craigslist. Did a right click on the 'rooms wanted' link. That brought up the selection list that includes 'open link in new tab'. I clicked on that, but nothing happens. No new tab is opened. The 'open link in new window' command is not working either.

I don't think any of the commands in that drop down list are working. I even tried 'inspect element', and that did nothing.

I just restarted this FF session. What is wrong?

Firefox 80.0.1 keeps running in the background, eating up my dial-up speed. This happened after loading this latest version. When starting a new session, I let the pre-fetching stop, and then browse. This used to work well, but not anymore.

Before 80.0.1 came out, you folks had me eliminate some pre-fetching which worked well with earlier versions, but I can find nothing on-line about this new version and what is causing it. It starts periodically during a session, and then stops, and starts again, seemingly at random. With a dial-up, this is almost unusable. Any ideas?

Starting last night, I have noticed that random tabs get "stuck" and I am unable to click on them to activate the page or close them.

Other tabs are unaffected and after about 30 seconds, the affected tab will become responsive.

I have noticed that the problem always occurs on the same tabs once the problem starts, and will continue to affect that tab if I navigate to a different website.

I have not added any additional add-ins and have tried disabling existing add-ins, without success.

Could someone please provide some methode to fix this issue?

I decided to use Firefox Developer Edition on my Linux machine (Fedora 32) as I migrate from Windows for Web Development, but I have hit a wall with it with Gnome Extensions. I get the following error when I attempt to modify or even view extensions.gnome.org content:

Although GNOME Shell integration extension is running, native host connector is not detected. Refer documentation for instructions about installing connector.

The only resolve I found for this is Chrome-based so I do not feel that is the issue I am having. The browser works fine other than this, at least from what I can tell. Is there a way to use the extensions? Should this issue be a precursor to things on Fedora that should keep me on Windows for the browser? Please advise, I want to make the full move to Linux soon.

With Firefox 80.0.1 on macOS 10.13.6 attempting to use Firefox->Services->New TextEdit Window Containing Selection on a bit of selected text in a web page consistently returns the error: "Service failed. Couldn’t open the selection. There might be an internal error or a performance problem, or the source application may be providing text of invalid type in the service request. Please try the operation a second time. If that doesn’t work, copy/paste the selection into TextEdit."

This works in Safari and Chrome, so I am confused and frustrated that it does not seem to work in Firefox.

Could this be a bug in Firefox? Unfortunately, I don't know how to read or wrote computer code. All I know is that this doesn't work for me.

I am seeing problems identical to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1273349

When I click a menu it briefly appears and then immediately disappears.

Turning on "Disable popup auto-hide" solves the issue, but this is a work around not a solution.

Restarting Firefox with a clean brand new profile resolves the problem. So it seems nothing to do with any of my plugins.

But after I click on a link from within emacs, the first time I open a menu it is fine. Then the 2nd time I try to open a menu it disappears immediately. There might be other conditions that do this also, but this is the most reliable way I have found to date.

I believe emacs is calling firefox, by default, using "xdg-open". If I manually use this command from a command prompt to open a web page. It works fine. Huh???

I changed emacs to explicitly invoke Firefox. At first this seemed to have solved this problem. But now it has come back again.

This has been ongoing for some time, over a large range of Firefox versions. Currently I can reproduce with 68.11.0 ESR and 80.0.1

Sometimes I have done something and I think I have magically resolved the issue, but then it comes back again.

This is currently Debian/buster and Debian/bullseye using the i3 window manager. In the past I have also had the same issue with Debian/stretch. I have multiple monitors. I doubt any of this is relevant, but just in case.

Unlike the previous referenced post I have not been able to reproduce this under OSX. Although I don't often click links from emacs either. So wonder if that is significant.
