Been having this issue for the last few weeks where Firefox just won't load YouTube properly. In particular, livestreams won't play, chat always show as "disconnected from chat" and I can't even access the profile menu (clicking on my profile pic on the top left just shows a loading icon forever).

Tried the following without any luck: 1. Safemode 2. Clearing all cache 3. Refresh firefox (When I first did a refresh, it started working again, then I went to sleep and the next morning the same problem is back again)

Any help would be much appreciated.

# Ubuntu garbage data increases exponentially
## Intro and context

Hello. I am a power user that works in software and web development. I have been using Firefox on and on for most my life, but full time as my main browser since late 2018. One thing I love Firefox for is its lightness on memory compared to that of Google Chrome, and also its open web standards, open source, privacy, ethical owners, and customizations. I have been using Windows 10 up until July 9th 2020 before I switched to my first main Linux desktop. I have always kept my eye on CPU and RAM usage, as high CPU drains battery and running out of RAM results in a system crash. I actively keep many tabs open (less than 100 but more than 60) I ensure that they are light. I mostly have GitHub tabs open, but I keep a few other things open as well, mostly Wikipedia/wiktionary and duckduckgo tabs, a pcloud (file service) tab, but sometimes a youtube tab or two (rarely a reddit tab)

## Issue

I have been noting that garbage collection is getting exponentially worse over time. When I got my laptop, I was able to keep 2-3 fully packed profiles open at all times, and never having to close Firefox until shutdown (after about 12-16 hours uptime) I rely heavily on Firefox profiles for organization. It has been getting exponentially worse. Starting in late 2020, I had to reduce the max number of open profiles to 2, and in 2021. In early January, I had to start closing the profiles once a day to free up 2-3+ GiB of RAM (swap doesn't change much, that is the garbage data that isn't being cleared, it normally ends up at 800 MiB to 1.7 GiB by the end of the day) and now (as of January 22nd 2021) I have to close Firefox 2-3 times a day to prevent my system from getting overloaded, as Firefox eats through 1-2 gigabytes of RAM per hour, even when idle. I have noticed several processes titled `web content` that use 200-600 MiB each (there is usually 2-7 of them) I am wondering what I can do for Firefox to prevent high RAM usage. For reference, here is my main profile in idle mode:

Mozilla is refusing to let me upload images right now, so I will link them

https://github.com/seanpm2001/seanpm2001/blob/master/FFTechSupport/Jan22/MProfile1_Idle_1.22.2021.png

Here is my usual 2nd profile in idle mode:

https://github.com/seanpm2001/seanpm2001/blob/master/FFTechSupport/Jan22/MProfile2_Idle_1.22.2021.png

Here is the RAM and SWAP usage before my 2nd refresh today (uptime: 8 hours 46 minutes)

https://github.com/seanpm2001/seanpm2001/blob/master/FFTechSupport/Jan22/FF_GF_Open_1.22.2021.png

And here it is with Firefox and Nautilus closed (I forgot about nautilus before getting the first 2 pics, it uses a lot of memory depending on its usage):

https://github.com/seanpm2001/seanpm2001/blob/master/FFTechSupport/Jan22/FF_GF_Closed_1.22.2021.png

I have lately suspected that GitHub may have gotten heavier, or is sending too much data via AJAX methods, but I am not entirely sure.

    1. System specs

Device: `Dell XPS 13 9XXX`

Operating system: `Ubuntu 20.04 (Focal Fossa)`

Linux Kernel version: `5.4.0-48-generic`

Processor type: `Intel Core i5 10th generation`

Processor specs: `Intel® Core™ i5-1035G1 CPU @ 1.00GHz × 8`

Processor mode: `x64`

Desktop environment: `GNOME 3.36.1`

Windowing system: `X Desktop environment 11`

Memory: `7.4 GiB (8 GB)`

SWAP file: `2.0 GiB`

Firefox version: `84.0.1` - I haven't updated in a while due to fear of memory increase and instability

Number of Firefox profiles: `61` - no new profiles created since December 26th 2020

I am wondering what I should do about this. I work with hundreds of projects, so I can't close too many tabs, as it becomes hard to access and manage. I intend to close 16 tabs in the next month, as I am freeing up some projects.

Over the past week I've had this error popup a few times when Firefox is launched:

"You've launched an older version of Firefox. Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox."

I haven't yet spotted a pattern, but the most recent time it happened, I had the browser already open and either opened a new window or clicked Firefox in my start menu. The new window showed my homepage (blank tab) but was unresponsive: I couldn't type into the address bar, click a bookmark, or even close the window. The existing window was fine, so I closed that but had to kill Firefox in Task Manager.

When I relaunched Firefox, I got the above error message. Luckily I use Sync, so my many bookmarks are backed up. But of course all cookies have been deleted, so I have to login to websites again.

Firefox is up-to-date (84.0.1, 64-bit) and running on Windows 10 Enterprise. I even uninstalled, cleared out the data in AppData\Roaming\Mozilla (plus Local and LocalLow), and reinstalled.

As I said, this has happened a few times over the last week (3 or 4?) and is starting to get annoying now!

Any ideas? Thanks!

I closed a session with about 70 tabs, and upon reopening, firefox opened two windows, and the "restore previous session" was grayed out. I looked at "recently closed tabs" and there was only about 5 recent google searches in there, and none of my older tabs.

I closed the windows and tried again, this time "restore" was available but it opened only one tab to a website I hadn't had open in a session for weeks.

So I tried the fix listed here: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1245632

Renamed the folder. And now on opening, all of my history, my bookmarks, my bookmark toolbar, is completely gone, and the only toolbar bookmark I have is "Getting Started" like a brand new version of firefox.

Please help, I have so many important websites in my bookmarks and I'm ruined if I can't restore them.

I am disabled and cannot type, and colleges 100% online this year because of CovId 19. When I tried to download the add-on for Dragon naturally speaking the program I use to write Foxfire says that it appears to be corrupted and will not allow me to download it. I know it's not corrupted because I have downloaded it from the same site for chrome. Can anybody tell me how to get around this problem? My sincerest thanks Kevin Arthur Cleveland

The print dialog box has been changed, Now I see no way to add or modify custom Header text. I am all for simplification and streamlining, but not dumbing down so much to the point of removing functionality which is seemingly has happened here. Used to be able to change the text as shown in attached picture "Page Setup"...is this just gone now? Please help, now I will have to try in another browser or use a sharpie.

Hello, I update Wordpress pages on downtownlanguages.org. The past couple of days, the site's top menu bar covers up the page headings on all the pages and does not scroll with the rest of the page. I don't know if this is a Firefox problem or a Wordpress problem. The pages display correctly in MS Edge and on my iPad. To my knowledge, I've done nothing in WordPress to cause this to happen. I have refreshed Firefox and cleared startup cache but it did not resolve the problem. Please help. Thank you! See https://downtownlanguage.org/donate for an example.

Search fail's me (again), avast F* antivirus installed a new browser on my computer, and now firefox is no longer my standard browser.

1) STAY AWAY FROM AVAST!!!! 2) when I uninstall that avast browser, and make firefox my default browser again, firefox boots a "fresh" browser. NOT my adapted (add-ins, theme, ...) firefox.

This happened before, but I have zero clues how to fix this (again). Last time it took me 6 months or so to fix this and it was a pretty straight forward thing. I can't for the life of me remember what I did?

My website, www.bluecollaru.com www.bluecollaru.com has been verified live in MS Edge, and by GoDaddy And it's verified it's live on Chrome for Android and by isitdownrightnow.com

This happened just last night. If I type the URL directly into the Firefox address bar I get this message "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at www.bluecollaru.com."

I have cleared cache, cookies, history, cleared the Managed WP site cache, had GoDaddy clear the global cache, I've rebooted router and WiFi, I have disabled all plugins, allowed cookies (although my site doesn't use cookies) I get the same error in Private Mode.

I can do a Google search and the site comes up - I click on the name and it works just fine.

Anything I haven't done?

Hi All, I have been using Firefox for many years. Recently microphone did not work in my laptop. As part of service they fixed hardware issue and installed windows 10. Then I tried to connect with Google Meet or WebEx, It seems camera and microphone audio don't seem to work as I expect. In screen, I see the message camera is starting and it stays there.

I am able to connect with other browsers. We did try several things. We couldn't find it.

Only one application is using camera at a time Browser asks permission to allow access to microphone and camera. Permissions in Privacy and Security also looks fine Sometimes windows defender asks for permission. There also it seems to be fine. Tried Firefox reinstall also. But Firefox somehow loads earlier settings. In other laptops Firefox works fine.

I am just wondering what could be root cause for this issue. Some settings need be done in Windows 10, defender or firefox as per my understanding

I involve in online teaching. Hence camera and microphone are important for me.

would appreciate your suggestions in trouble shooting.

I want my firefox to save my browsing history locally. It only saves a day or so at a time. I use adblock, video speed controller, DuckduckGO privacy essentials, and Tampermonkey extensions. I've looked through all their options for anything that might be causing my history to not be saved, especially the Duck duck go one but there's no setting that shouldn't be on as far as I see. Why won't firefox save my browsing history?
