Huge memory leak from FF is causing my computer to shut down

Hello all,

I have been experiencing a critical issue with FF for more than a year now and even though I reported it via the FF crash reporter numerous times it never got fixed so I figured I would report it here.

The issue could be summarized as follow: browsing the website mixcloud.com triggers a memory leak from FF that eventually causes my whole computer to shut down if FF cannot be "force[d] to quit" in time.

Here is a more detailed description I sent to Mixcloud support last year:

"Often times when I open a new page/tab on the website the loading freezes and after a few seconds a yellow warning notification pops up on the upper part of the screen asking: "a web page is slowing down your browser. What would like to do?” with the two following options available: "Stop it" or "Wait". If I click "stop it" the loading will indeed stop and I just have to refresh the page again to continue browsing normally. The troubles begin if I click "wait" or do nothing: the overall memory usage of Firefox will then increase seemingly exponentially and after only a few minutes the whole system will become unresponsive and I will have to hard reboot my computer or it will reboot by itself. This is extremely annoying as you can imagine as every time that happens I lose all unsaved data in the process! Strangely enough this issue sometimes even occur without any notification displayed or freeze happening in the first place: I would be browsing a few Mixcloud pages then switching to another website and after a couple of minutes I would notice that the memory usage is increasing although no Mixcloud page is open any longer... In both cases the only solution I found is to quit/force to quit Firefox as soon as possible to prevent it (and the system) to become unresponsive. Closing the application always resolves the issue and I can see the memory usage of the overall system subsequently dropping sometimes from up to 95% to 40% in the Activity Monitor app. Again I would like to stress that I have been experiencing this issue ONLY on Mixcloud and that I have no other memory related issue on my computer nor with Firefox in general."

Mixcloud support reply at the time: "this is linked to some issues we've been experiencing but our team are busy working on a fix for". 10 months later nothing changed...

The same issue happened again this very morning: I opened a Mixcloud link from google results and even though I immediately closed it, 5 minutes later the RAM usage was at 93% and I struggled during 10 minutes to "force to quit" FF as the whole computer was becoming increasingly unresponsive. I can provide a crash report from this morning but would prefer not to display it publicly.

Please investigate this leak. It is becoming more and more frustrating to deal with as the time goes by.

Hey guys,

the following problem has recently occurred on my Surface Pro 4. I switched from Chrome to Firefox. After the change, everything went smoothly.

Suddenly the on-screen keyboard could no longer be opened when using in tablet mode. If you tap an input field, the screen keyboard opens first. The window then appears to refresh itself and the keyboard closes again.

The only way to use the on-screen keyboard is to move the browser to the right or left side of the desktop and pin it. The keyboard works as usual in this half window.

Apart from updates, I've added the ublock and umatrix extensions. Could the problem come from there?

Tab session manager: not possible to reload tabs from previous session

Hello experts, I have a problem: I had a session window open with 116 tabs open and I cannot re-open them after restert of FireFox. I use the newest Firefox version 79.0 (64-Bit) on Windows 7 Pro SP1 and the extension "Tab Session Manager" I closed FireFay and as usual, after I restartef it, I waited for the opening of the series of my previous opened tabs. FireFax opened 117 tbs but did not fill in the URLs. They were all opened as new tabs. So I tried to open FireFox with deactivated add-ons. There it was possible to restore all the tabs. After that I closed FireFox again and opened it the usual way. It opened 116 tabs but they were all empty. I used the Add-on manager to shut down my extensions leaving only the tab session manager, AdblockPlus, NoScript. After restarting te tabs were empty again. In the list of the tab session manager I could find the sessions with 116 empty tabs (see ErrorTabSessionManager0.gif) but also the last session with the original tabs. See image ErrorTabSessionManager1.gif. I could even save this list from TabSessionManager. I updated PabSessionmanager to the newest version but that did not help. How can I get FireFox to load these previous tabs again, some of them are very important for me ? thanks for any help Jochen

I downloaded Firefox installer (for version 79.0) on Windows via Edge from here https://www.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/new/ Checksums of the downloaded installer are (calculated by `certutil -hashfile "Path_to_Firefox_installer" SHA256` and `certutil -hashfile "Path_to_Firefox_installer" SHA512` in Windows command line):

SHA256 caceeacec49a4d4cac94bb48266adb28bc53515345619e336c26488846717a56

SHA512 0c1ffcd219c0c788ac01064bfbb800a95990111539e7ed20c7e9b279c7502e59cef1c7b0274f57cba71bd3bf2493d579b9f7157346ad9a0821913ecba6558e02

they do not match any from https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/SHA256SUMS and https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/SHA512SUMS

When I downloaded the same installer on Windows via Firefox checksums were different than before (calculated by the same command)

SHA256 bc4dd6ce1b53b194bc95ef908278f670494dd5fb782eea2da563098e58a2db3d

SHA512 ecec87468644b2219618e21e127d54460222346fb639a11bdd31685ffcd9ce56219991a64e4144f2f80a8f88672dbad3ab4f0edda388c11c4d9bcd8446e16a8c

they match "win32/pl/Firefox Installer.exe" on "https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/SHA256SUMS" and "https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/SHA512SUMS".

What is strange the signatures of the files are identical. I downloaded installer two more times (with restarting computer in between, why not) and it gave me exact same hashes depending only on what browser i used for downloading them. Is it a known problem when downloading firefox via Edge? Is it known why this happens? Does this problem occur to you? Is Firefox downloaded via Edge safe to install?

Thanks

I have Windows 7 and Firefox browser 79.0 (64bit).

I followed all troubleshooting steps: Firefox was "refreshed"; theme is default; all extensions were removed; hardware acceleration disabled.

Now, if I restart Firefox in Safe mode - the problem disappears. When I start it normally, the problem persists.

Can anyone help to troubleshoot this?

Thanks.

After clicking on Delete cookies and Cache for only ONE particular website, in Cookies and Site Data, Manage Data then closing Firefox and restarting it, it lost ALL of my Tabs, previous browsing session history and my Bookmarks Setting which was pinned on the left side of the screen and the Menu Bar! I tried Refreshing Firefox but that didn't help. Under Startup, I had the box selected to Restore Previous Session. What's going on with Firefox?? This is especially frustrating because I don't have time to waste trying to fix Firefox---especially while simply trying to fix a problem with one website which as made thing worse.

Why should this problem occur and how can I get all of my previous settings back shortly and make then stay?
