Firefox is taking over my RAM

What is going on with Firefox on Linux? It's been my favorite browser for years and I want to stick with it, but it becomes unusable.

I've got 32GB of RAM, so I should theoretically be able to open quite a few tabs (which I need as a web developer), but when I have about 15 tabs open, it consumes about 1GB of ram per tab. Usually I have some webmail tabs open, google drive, youtube, some documentation and references, github, example sites... you know, the usuall stuff you find in a web dev's browser.

I'm running the latest updates on Ubuntu 20.04 and have the latest Firefox installed. On my Windows (dual-boot so the same computer, but windoze is more for gaming than for work), I can open 50 tabs and have no memory issues at all. I'm syncing my extensions so it's the exact same configuration, yet on Linux it's huge a pain in the behind to keep using it.

Are there any fixes for this? I've seen other complain about similar issues for previous versions of Firefox and other Linux distros, I've ran through all the self help suggestions and nothing helps.

Still trying to figure out what is wrong after refresh of Firefox.

I cannot get my handful of preferred websites to remain logged in when closing and reopening Firefox.

I have FF set to clear cookies and data on closing, but this handful of sites are listed as exceptions.

After reopen FF, the relevant cookies are not sticking. This used to work better.

I redownloaded FF and no improvement.

I'm thinking conflicting settings or....?

FF beta for Mac OS, 93.0b3.

This new version of the browser does not maintain the appearance of windows when set to the system defaults. The title bar top of the window is almost white. Moreover,

both an active window and an inactive window look 

exactly the same! Why does Mozilla keep fiddling with these color schemes? Leave it up to the user!

Hi there! I recently purchased a new computer. I tried to sync my bookmarks by logging into my FF account. But I can not find my bookmarks. I no longer have my old computer. I have tried to find a solution here but I was not able to find a previous article on this. Is there a way I can recover my bookmarks? Many thanks.

I remember from past rodeos that I need to know the precise name of the cookies. But now when I check which cookies are added when I login, I can only see them grouped by the main website title--nytimes.com and I see that they have added 7 cookies. But I cannot see individual cookies.

How can I see the cookies to copy their addresses for the 'exceptions' table for data management to allow the right ones to be retained; OR just tell FF to allow my 3 preferred sites to stay 'always' logged in when I reopen FF?

I have a shop InlaysJHess with Etsy.com using Safari 13.1.2. Etsy says they will be dropping support for Safari on Sept 14th and they suggest that I switch to Firefox.

I have had Firefox installed in my IMac for a long time and it has been updated from time to time.

I've tried to copy this: https://www.etsy.com/your/shops/me/dashboard?ref=hdr-mcpa from Safari to Firefox but that does not work.

I'm wondering if anyone can tell me how I can switch my shop account from Safari to Firefox? I would not like to close my account with Safari without having it set up in Firefox.

i would appreciate any suggestions that anyone might have. Thank you.

Firefox Browser uprated to 92.0 today. Previously whilst browsing Ad's were showing; today I have no Ad's displayed but have not enabled an Ad Blocker on Firefox. A site I use extensively cannot now be properly viewed; I get a message to turn off Ad Blocker. I have set Enhanced Tracking Protection to 'Off' but am still unable to obtain full functionality, I am using standard Firefox Privacy settings otherwise. I am able to browse the site properly using MS Edge. I have deliberately refrained from using any AD Blocking on my part so as to ensure the site in question can be properly viewed. The only Firefox extension being used is Kaspersky Protection; I get the turn off Ad Blocker message both when Kaspersky Protection is on or off.

I used to use a lot the three dots next to a webpage to share the page via airdrop (to have it/share it with my own phone or others'). Now the three dots have disappeared and, although I read here that I could do that by right clicking the page, the option for SHARE does not appear. Can you please explain how to do this now? (I use a Mac).

I'm curious: when I choose to autofill a saved password, does Firefox copy and paste the password under the hood, i.e. does the password ever appear in my clipboard, or does Firefox emulate the keyboard to fill in the password? Or something else?
