Possible IPC memory leak - how to pinpoint the culprit?

Hey there, I'm having trouble with Firefox. Something inside Firefox is eating up my RAM and CPU. Usually I recognize the problem happening because my laptop fans ramp up. The problem occurs on my laptop as well on my desktop (both on latest stable Firefox[Build ID: 20220513165813] and Windows 11). The workaround is to kill the Firefox subprocess which is using most of the CPU and RAM. Then everything is back to normal for some time, until Firefox starts messing with me again.

While trying to pinpoint the problem I'm stuck. I can't find a culprit other than the fact it has something to do with Firefox. Clean reinstalling did not help. The Firefox Task Manager doesn't know anything about huge amounts of RAM being taken. I searched for solutions on the net and the about:memory indicates the problem is some IPC related stuff:

 {
  "process": "Main Process (pid 12648)",
  "path": "queued-ipc-messages/content-parent(Browser, pid=9612, open channel, 0x22e4b33fc30, refcnt=38)",
  "kind": 2,
  "units": 1,
  "amount": 0,
  "description": "The number of unset IPC messages held in this ContentParent's channel.  A large value here might indicate that we're leaking messages.  Similarly, a ContentParent object for a process that's no longer running could indicate that we're leaking ContentParents."
 }

The bug reporting guidelines(https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/page.cgi?id=bug-writing.html) are encouraging me to attach steps to reproduce and try the steps listed on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-uses-too-much-memory-or-cpu-resources . But I've exhausted the steps there (Except for upgrading the PC / RAM).

Especially on the go this Firefox-RAM-Party takes quite some battery and right now while writing this Firefox has >100GB virtual RAM reserved for some IPC messages, I personally think this is too much. So I'd like to file a report, but without steps to reproduce I'm afraid the developers are going to say 'well, that's something we are not able to diagnose', because I am unable to explain how to reproduce it. It just happens from time to time.

The anonymized about:memory report: https://bin.disroot.org/?2ba01ef78154cce4#8PLVqLTd9qgaRn2QVX2P17hkbHQyrTDuVAwoykj2cBxg

I left Firefox running like this for about half an hour and at 138GB reserved RAM Windows slaughtered my Firefox. The resulting crash report: https://bin.disroot.org/?0bc57492585dde4b#5YtbWgXcbZSkWYmg2CGkVn9iiipYwfYbxUfCLhmMJh7d

Do you have a clue where I might find out who sends those IPC messages, and therefore who is responsible for this?

Gmail "open message in new window" redirect fails since updating to FF 100.0.1

I have two Gmail Workspace accounts logged in to two different tabs in one FF browser window. Have used this set-up for years. However, ever since updating to FF 100.0.1, when I try to open an email thread in a new window (pops out the message into a separate window), there is a "cannot properly re-direct error" that appears.

Only way to resolve this appears to be clearing the cache for mail.google.com and signing in again to both accounts. However, this solution only appears to work for a day or two before the "redirect error in a new window" occurs again.

This error does not occur in Private Browsing mode, and Google Workspace support has confirmed it is not an issue with Gmail/ Workspace.

Any thoughts on how this can be fixed? I have disable all "enhanced tracking protection"

Thank you for your time and help,

Seems as if Firefox is updating every other day lately. I have Dashlane on my tool bar, and it seems to freeze/disable after every update. When I open Dashlane separately in the browser and log in, it congratulates me on installing it on a new device. What is Firefox changing with its updates that makes my computer look different to Dashlane? I cannot find the Dashlane version running but I do have it on automatically update.

I am an a US citizen, living in Europe! How do I keep Mozilla from changing languages on me? I just connected my Laptop PC and everything is in the German language. Why? I'm sorry, but I must insist that Mozilla stop doing this. My mother tongue is American English, and when I keep getting your communications in a foreign language, there is a good possibility that I might misinterpret what has been written by Mozilla to me. Or is the problem with me living in Europe?

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/permission-request-messages-firefox-extensions?as=u&utm_source=inproduct The long list of permissions here seem incredibly excessive, completely irrelevant to the task and therefore an invasion of privacy. Some examples: ''Extend developer tools to access your data in open tabs "Download files and read and modify the browser’s download history" "Open files downloaded to your computer" "Read the text of all open tabs" "Access recently closed tabs" "Access your location" "Access browsing history" "Monitor extension usage and manage themes" "Exchange messages with programs other than Firefox" "Read and modify privacy settings" "Control browser proxy settings" "Store unlimited amount of client-side data" Seriously? All I want the browser to do is search for an image, not hand over all my personal information to you. You can't find an image without checking where I am, what else I've been doing, modifying my privacy and browser proxy settings, storing unlimited data, reading everything on my open and recently closed tabs? Is this to be used for commercial purposes? What's going on here? I think it's time to find a new browser. Please explain.
