how do i force firefox to use more ram?
because google is broken im asking here.
I have 32gb ram so why cant firefox use 20gb? Firefox often max out at 7gb like the image, but once or twize i had it 9gb, but very rare, so why must my firefox lag using 7gb ram when it have another 15gb to pick from ? This is not about how to make firefox faster byt removing, resetting or that yada yada that google shove in your face when you search, I would rather increase ram to make it faster...If I upgrade to 64gb can i get firefox to use 50gb+ of ram ?
If so how do i do that, i feel like I always have lost of ram free, but firefox still lag instead of taking more ram to make it self go faster

Firefox is a multiprocess application, so I'm a little puzzled by your screenshot. Normally in Firefox 54 and later, you would see at least a few more firefox.exe processes. Are you somehow forcing Firefox to use only a single process?
Also, as you probably know, Firefox 56 is not supported any more. The current releases are:
- Standard Release (Firefox 66): https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/
- Extended Support Release of Firefox 60: https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/organizations/all/
