20 GB RAM usage, pagefile takes up all space on C: - 300 tabs in Tree Tabs

First, this post is basically Congratulations for Firefox upon working almost flowlessly under this extreme heavy load without crashing. Saving/loading sessions works well. (which is unexpected but makes me _very_ happy :-)) Firefox exits properly without any exceptions, no matter how long it runs, or how many times the PC is sent to STR mode meanwhile.

Second, everything is fine, except RAM usage. No matter how many RAM is installed, Firefox takes up all of it after a few days of normal operation. I have recently upgraded my PC from 16 to 24 GB of RAM only for this sole reason to see if anything changes, but it did not produce any noticable change, except that it takes 5-7 days for Firefox to fill up all the RAM instead of the 3-4 days before. Disk space on C: drive was nullified by Firefox as the paging file went up to 50 GB.

I want to hunt down this thing. I have approx. 300 tabs, 2 addons, and Hardware Acceleration is disabled since otherwise Fox hangs several times a day (have to be killed from outside). Pics are attached. https://addons.mozilla.org/hu/firefox/addon/tree-tabs/ https://gitlab.com/kroppy/TreeTabs

I'd like to get suggestions where to start.

  1. Disabling or replacing the adblocker ?
  2. Inspecting memory usage on Process Manager (about:processes) and Task Manager (about:performance) pages ?
  3. Installing some external tools like Firemin ?

Please don't suggest neither safe mode nor disabling all addons, since that makes it impossible to reproduce this amount of load, which is the primary reason behind the symptom.

I PrtScr'ed Process Manager and Task Manager, see that RAM sizes per page are normal in Task Manager, but not in Process Manager (10 times more).

CPU usage is totally normal for this load, even when memory is in the heaven. See the TaskMan pic. (I suppose that's because of ad blocking)

Thanks for any ideas,

I am currently having problems with my Firefox browser. For example often if I type something into the google search box at the right of the address bar and hit return nothing happens until I go down and select Bing instead of the google setting. Also in hotmail (I am on a desktop) if I go to reply, the original is now ether twice. This does not happen if I use Google browser. But I prefer Firefox as I have used it for years.

My concern is if I delete Firefox and reinstall it, I may lose some of the settings or bookmarks that I have set over the years.

Any suggestions? Please simple as i am old and not computer savvy.

Your help would be so appreciated. I am currently on Firefox 107.0 (64 bit)

Thanks, Anthony

After moving to Firefox 91.9.1esr I found problem with System theme 1.2. The color of tab add button was changed, and the button is not visible with my Windows 7 classic windows system theme. So, I'm trying to find a way to port System theme 1.0 color scheme to newer firefox versions.

Creation of a simple theme with firefox color extension works. But it is unable to recreate the effects related to active and inactive window color changes. As, I had to use bitmap to get the OS blue color transition pattern.

It seems the system theme is stored in omni.ja file. Modification of the omni.ja seems to be not a practical solution. So, it would be a better way to create an addon theme with the same code as the System Theme 1.0.

The first question is, if it will be possible to create a theme with the same code as a system theme has. Will it be able to perform the same way?

The next question is: Where the source code of the system theme is? I was unable to find it in the Firefox source. It seems, it is not stored in any obvious location.

Garbled font in Firefox on macOS Monterey (12.6.1)

Hello :)

I'm using Firefox 107.0 on macOS 12.6.1 and I'm having weird issues with the displayed font. It appears on the startup screen of Firefox and on websites (see screenshots attached).

The garbled font is called ".SF NS".

I've tried turning the option "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" on and off without success.

I have also tried enabling and disabling hardware acceleration - also without luck.

The issue does **not** appear in safe mode. Unfortunately resetting the theme and disabling all extensions hasn't helped either :(

I have also downloaded and installed a font called "SFNS Display" but the issue persists.

Uninstalling Firefox (with AppCleaner) and reinstalling hasn't fixed the problem.

I don't know what else to try. Can someone help me please? :)

when opening tickets in our helpdesk system, TeamDynamix, the new window opens on the main display. if the Firefox browser is open on another display the new window has empty space on the right and bottom (see attachment). if the Firefox browser is open on the main display or the new window opens on the same display as the Firefox browser there is no empty space. dragging the new window from the main display to the display with the Firefox browser open the empty space disappears and the new window displays correctly.

this only happen recently. with an older version of Firefox (not sure which version), there was no empty space on the new window.

Every time I close and re-open firefox, the extensions Ublock Origin and Translate Web Pages become invisible in my tool bar even though they are pinned. The extensions also stop working until I disable and then enable them again, as well as this they also lose all settings I have saved on them. For some reason other extensions such as Youtube enhancer do not do this and work perfectly fine. I have tried looking up the question to find related but not applicable solutions. any help appreciated

The best example of pinned tabs functionality on web browsers can be seen on what MacOS Safari is doing. Safari maintains pinned tabs across multiple windows and sessions, it also remembers the initial url used when the pin was placed, that means that when you open a new Safari session, the pinned tabs will always display the url you pinned and not the last page you visited on that tab. Firefox pinned tabs lack real world functionality, this point can be proven by seeing how many Firefox extensions for specific sites are on the extension browser. Please add this functionality, it could be one optional preference on the Settings page.

If I open multiple browser windows, each one moves about 1/4 inch to the right of the previous browser window. So if for example I opened 12 new browser windows, the 12th one would end up about 3 inches to the right of the first one. This is most annoying. How do I get each new browser window to open in precisely the same place as the previous browser window already open?

Any help would be much appreciated.
