I just checked task manager, since my computer was running a bit slow, and found firefox to be using nearly 1.2 GIGABYTES of RAM, with only 4 tabs open + Chatzilla for IRC. I have Skyrim running at the same time, and it is using LESS RAM than Firefox is!

I've tried disabling plugins, to the point where I only have the Flash and Adobe PDF ones running, I had to disable the plugin container since it crashes repeatedly (Usually at least once every couple of days). I tried using the "Free Memory" options in about:memory, and they do literally nothing to reduce the RAM usage. It's normally between 400 and 600 MB (Which is still insanely excessive for a browser). Closing Chatzilla only reduces the RAM usage by about 10-15 MB, so it doesn't seem to be the problem.

How in the name of all that's sacred is a browser using more RAM than a modded version of Skyrim?

Before the update everything was working fine, but yesterday after the update I noticed that whenever I open a page and after that I hit back button, it doesn't reload the page like before. It's annoying, because I use forum and sometimes is confusing when I open a thread and after that it still says that "new thing", the only way to remove it is to reload the page from the refresh button.

I have YouTube videos embedded on my website and some of them will play and some will not. This happens on both PC and MAC so is not OS specific and all the embedding coding on the website is the same. When I first embedded the videos they all worked, now only certain ones play. The ones that will not play have a black screen and audio only plays.

I have McAfee Internet Security with a Site Advisor that works when it wants to. When I start my browser it sometimes isn't there and it isn't until I restart my computer it makes an appearance. The same problem is true for the green ticks that show whether it's safe to browse. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and Site Advisor but neither have worked for me, so I am left with restarting my computer every time I turn it on to get a working Site Advisor. I am using Windows 7 64 bit if that helps so if anyone can fix this perplexing issue for me once and for all I will be forever grateful.

Since Update Tuesday from Microsoft (13 Aug 2013), v23.0 has been crashing unpredictably and almost constantly. This might, in theory, be related to the most recent update to Ghostery, but there was a crash prior to the Ghostery update that installed later on 13 August.

  • Occurs with both single session and multiple tabs
  • Occurs with flash running and flash not running/visible on on tab
  • Occurs when browsing the 'net and when viewing (previously OK) files on disk, even when the 'net is explicitly turned off

Session restore DOES appear to work.

System basics: Win7Pro32, HP Pro Book, although I've experienced this on multiple machines with a variety of Win7 setups

Related crashes: Thunderbird is also misbehaving a bit since Update Tuesday, although not nearly so severely... and only (about 1 in 4) when Firefox has also just crashed.

NB2 I will NOT use the "automated crash reporter" because much of my work involves privileged information and investigations in progress.

I'm having some trouble with javascript menus (or what I believe are javascript menus). Whether it matters or not I am not sure, but it happens in both Firefox and Chrome...IE works fine.

Examples of sites with menus that don't work:

1. Orbitz.com: Can't pull down the "Adult" or "Child" menus. 2. toyota.com: Can't "select vehicle" at the top of the page.

I get no error messages. I have started Firefox in safe mode, I have also reset Firefox.

It's now Firefox 23 and the HiDPI mess is still going strong!

Does anyone know how to actually fix it and return Firefox to looking the way it did up to version 21 or is going back to 21 the only viable solution?

I did try the whole messing around with layout.css.devPixelsPerPx but it doesn't work - interface text gets too small and blurred, icons on the other hand are still big and blurred, and website content is HUGE. In addition to this Firefox feels slower.

Since updating to Firefox 23.0.1, I am unable to connect to our company servers. The error message is "Certificate type not approved for application.", and it gives me no option to create an exception.

In previous versions, Firefox gave the option of creating a security exception, and then everything worked as expected. The new version does not give this option, and hence I cannot connect to our company servers.

I can connect using Explorer, Opera, Chrome, etc., without any problems. Only Firefox refuses to connect.

Please advice.
