Hello!

I’ve been having quite strange problem with Firefox for a few months since version 80.X on clean Windows 10 (reinstalled from scratch after secure erase; the latest 20H2 version with all updates installed). It’s worth to mention that I’ve been using Firefox like 15 years and never had an issue like this before.

Firefox just fills up system drive completely (50+GB to 0 bytes remaining) few times a day under active usage. It happens randomly and I can’t identify the reason. I also can’t find any actual files saved on disk because it seems to be related to NTFS cache. I’ve tried disabling the following settings with no success:

browser.cache.disk.enable cached-web-content_cached-web-content browser.cache.memory.enable browser.cache.disk.smart_size.enabled

And couldn’t find any solution unfortunately. I usually have 2 windows opened ("common" and private) with 10 to 30 tabs each which is not much at all for i7/16GB I believe. This problem is extremely annoying and seriously affects SSD life so I'd really appreciate if someone would help me to resolve it. Thanks in advance!

Constant disk activity

Why is Firefox 78 writing to disk constantly? Even when the browser is idle, the hard drive light on my computer blinks non-stop, and I can hear the constant noise coming from the hard drive. The problem is with the browser because the Processor Explorer (available from Microsoft) shows Firefox as doing the constant disk activity, and hard drive stops making noise when the browser is closed.

Hi, for the last few weeks, Firefox has been showing ridiculously high disk usage and memory usage - near 100% - growing steadily from the moment I open the program until it stops responding, crashes, screws up my system (mouse cursor hanging etc) and eventually I manage to end process.

Internet Explorer on the same laptop - Windows 8, 8GB of RAM - is fine.

Things I've tried: - Making sure Firefox is up to date. - Turning off Firefox multiprocess - Disabling add-ons - 'Minimize memory usage' in about:memory - Resetting Firefox - Restarting Firefox - The other advice at this page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-uses-too-much-memory-ram?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=High+memory+usage

What can people advise?
