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.

I've been moving between computers and used a time machine back up to bring over everything, including my Firefox profile. Everything was fine but about 2 weeks ago the computer seemingly crashed while I was absent and on the restart and ever since, just the one window, of 3, that I had open stays on screen. I have tried seeing all windows and looking on separate desktops but all to no avail. When I quit Firefox it clearly recognises all the windows as the tabs count is correct but only the 1 window was ever visible. I did all the madness of renaming the sessionstore file and deleting the recovery json files and replacing the previos json file but nothing has changed the outcome. I tried the Henderson?!? website to get a list of everything but that just looked like it was eternally thinking and never concluded. It's highly likely the workload was exceptional and might well have completed one day but it seemed to be stuck. If it helps, I'm on an 10 core 3.6ghz iMac with 64Gb of RAM and I'm using the latest Firefox version. Before anyone asks, I had an obscene amount of tabs open as I have many projects on the go and different windows are used for different things with multiple tabs in each window. The highest total tabs I've ever had was 541! I know, I know.

Just upgraded from Mint 18 to 20.2 and am finding FIrefox unusable. I've tried to research this and am getting nowhere. Ryzen 5, Gigabyte GA-356-gaming MB , 32GB Ram

I have about 10 windows configured with 10 tabs. (Happily this version of Firefox now remembers which desktop they are on across reboots!) When I start up firefox and it begins loading these tabs, it grinds to a halt with high CPU utilization and for some reason there is almost no activity on ethernet. The tabs take FOREVER to load, and once loaded firefox windows and tabs operates either clunky or unresponsive. MInt is affected some too, with other operations somewhat clunky.

I can reboot and load a session of Chrome and it behaves fine and speed tests there are proper. Since it works on Chrome, I figure this is strictly a FIrefox code issue, not something underlying like BIOS (which is F31, not the highest for this MB) But hopefully there is a Mint work around that someone knows.

Firefox seems to be partially transparent, which makes my background to bleed over the Firefox windows. I have already reinstalled it, cleared cookies and data, refreshed firefox, made a new profile and even deleted all firefox files and cache in ~/.mozilla/firefox and /usr/lib/firefox/ & firefox-addons/.


And despite all of this it still does not seem to fix the transparency issue, apart form it all the browser works great only that visual bug annoys the experience. The errors seems to disappear if Firefox is launched in Troubleshoot Mode but launching without it brings back the issue.

NOTE: It can be fixed by installing a fresh copy of the system which is not convenient. Error happens in Firefox-92.0 in linux.

Firefox sign in button does nothing when clicked. Same happens for the drop down menu and in the settings window. I have all extensions disabled, still nothing happens when I click the sign in button. Perhaps it is a problem with multiple profiles because sign in works when I open Firefox to my alternate profile. I would like to sign in to Firefox through my default profile. Thanks in advance to anyone who may be able to help.

Been trying to reslove a issue i've noticed since updating to the latest firefox version that was released this week. Never had a problem before. Chrome and Edge load and play stream normally. Updated all the normal things like drivers for audio and video card, reinstalled Firefox with a new profile, no add ons etc, turned hardware acceleration on and off, still get the same issue.

System is overpowered so its not down to it running slow or being old and also intenet connection is fine and I'm cabled in before anyone asks the "Have you turned it on and off questions :)"

Going to try and downgrade to the version before and see it fixes the issue and hope its resloved in the next hotfix.

It should be noted that this problem is related to streams and not normal videos, however someone on this forum posted problems with lagging videos, so maybe related.

From about the time I installed Dropbox 2-3 weeks ago my Windows 10 PC won't go into sleep mode unless I close Firefox first. Closing Dropbox makes no difference so it might just be co-incidence. If I use Norton to run a scan and go into sleep mode at end that also works, and PC stays asleep until I wake it. Have tried refreshing Firefox but no improvement (running Firefox 91.0.2 (64bit)). Any thoughts please?

Every couple of days, I go to check what the covid updates are in my province by going to covid19stats.alberta.ca/

However, if I click in the address bar and start typing "cov" - firefox continually recommends covid19stats.aberta.ca/ (with alberta misspelled)

I'm sure I never typed out this url and gone there, and I've deleted it from the search suggestions a half-dozen times. This doesn't happen for me in other browsers.

There is nothing meaningful at "aberta.ca" and I've been to the "alberta.ca" one hundreds of times by now so you'd think it would recommend sites I go to a lot.

Why does it keep suggesting this nonsense url?

I prefer Firefox but speed-tests show it is considerably slower than Chrome and Edge. I have cable network connection. Max download speed is 1000 Mbps. Test show above 900 Mbps for Edge and Chrome and 5-600 Mbps for Firefox, sometimes it is much slower and sometimes download stops for 5-20 seconds. I therefore tried "Refresh Firefox" - and my dear Bookmark sidebar disappeared!! Firefox info told me bookmarks would be saved. Well, it is saved, but it is real troublesome to use it compared to my old sidebar. I WANT MY OLD SIDEBAR BACK - ANY HELP? Kind regards Toralf

Hi: I'm using Firefox 91.02. It works great until I sign on to https://facebook.com.

At that point not only can it not handshake, but all my other tabs and links no longer work. I have to restart and then everything is fine, unless I click on FB.

My system is well protected with AVG.

Can you please advise?

Thanks. David

Hi,

I frequently have a problem where I will receive this error message every time I try to open a link from another application or the Windows desktop: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window."

The existing Firefox window is running perfectly fine with no problems, and I am forced to copy and paste links to open them.

The problem goes away temporarily if I restart Firefox but usually starts happening again not long after.

I did search for help with this problem but the only results I found were in relation to the Firefox process actually being stalled and preventing the application being re-opened, this is NOT what is occurring for me.

Can't open links from other apps, error "Firefox is already running"

This question was asked 6 months ago and I have the same problem.

Running Ubuntu Mate 21.04 (metacity), FF 91.0.2 (64-bit). I have it set up with two different profiles, with separate menu entries for each using "firefox -P [PROFILE NAME] -no-remote %u". One of them is set to always use private browsing mode and I use that profile as my default app in mate.

If if set chrome as my default browser, I can open links from other apps without a problem regardless of chrome being already running or not.

When I set FF as default, whenever it is already open and I try to open a link, I get a "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile." error.

I've seen some comments about similar issues with wayland and tried setting MOZ_DBUS_REMOTE and even MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND to 1.

Can you help me?

Since the upgrade to 91.0.2 I am encountering a problem with one page on one website. Can anyone help me to resolve this?

I've checked page settings and removed Cookies etc, to no effect. On logging in securely to My Xero, the Dashboard is the default page loaded, and it works fine. If I browse to any other page (but the Dashboard), all works well. However, when going to the shortcut for the Dashboard, I get this error on the blank page.

'Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete'.

If I use the back button, it opens OK. Using Web developer tools I see the error message in http://go.xero.com/Dashboard/ : I get NS Error redirecting, but have no knowlwedge to do anything more. Can people offer a fix?
