I just upgraded my computer to a 1 tb hard drive and installed windows 10. Now firefox doesn't work right, example: I go on Facebook or another site and when I try to type a post I have to type 2 or 3 letters, then wait several seconds for them to appear. I have re-position my cursor and type 2 or 4 more letters and wait again. Can this be fixed?

In the past weeks, suddenly my Firefox started behaving really weird - a few times a day the currently opened tab becomes unresponsive (you can't click or hover anything) but you can still scroll through them (at least a bit - after that point, it's just plain white). At these times, the cursor is the hand one, during the whole unresponsiveness episode, as if everything was clickable (though obviously clicking does nothing). You also can't close the tab during this tab - the only way is either to wait a good 30 seconds for it to unfreeze or to change to a different tab and close the unresponsive one. When you do change tabs, though, the newly opened tab sometimes disappears completely, with a radial loading circle appearing in the middle of the screen for a few seconds before it magically reappears (it does _not_ reload, though!). From what I've been able to observe, this tends to appear on content-heavy websites like Reddit, Facebook and YouTube most often.

What is happening? I haven't changed my browsing habits in the past weeks, nor have I installed any new add-ons. I've tried disabling the ones I have but it's still happening with them turned off. What else may I try?

I went back to beta. Worked for a couple days. Now an update came in: BAM! same thing! Now I have 2 broken Firefoxes on my PC.

Not even running the Profile manager worked!!

Back to standard version: Works

This is a fresh install (I uninstalled and removed all folders and registry entries before reinstalling). Ive run scans for infections.

Firefox is very slow to bring up pages (30 seconds minimum) while IE and Chrome are normal.

When I close FF, the firefox.exe process doesnt' close for 3 to 5 minutes ad then I get a "Firefox crashed" message.

I'm seeing this on a ton of machines (7 and Vista).

Please help!

Hi all, I'm using a MSI GF62-7RD laptop running Windows 10 64-bit, latest Firefox version (59.0.2 64-bit). For the last few weeks Firefox on my laptop has been taking years to load almost all web pages, while Internet Explorer on those same occasions was able to load the same pages in good time. The annoying thing is that Firefox on my desktop (Windows 7) is not similarly afflicted. And to make matters even stranger, my laptop when using other internet connections (at friends' houses etc.) is able to use Firefox without the speed issues I get at home.

This problem was also present intermittently on my last laptop (also MSI with the same OS), but now it seems to be a permanent state of affairs. I have variously in the past tried disabling accessibility services, refreshing Firefox, and doing a complete re-install (including deleting all Mozilla folders in the user's Appdata folder). Nothing seems to help....

For the past few months or so, Firefox has become completely unusable for me. About every five minutes or so, the browser freezes, and I have to kill the process in order to re-launch it. I've tried clean uninstall/reinstall, removing all add-ons, etc. Nothing seems to work. I've installed it on 4 of my computers, and it freezes on all of them (Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows 7 Professional, and Windows 10).

Has anybody had any luck fixing the instability, or am I just stuck with Chrome?

Hi Firefox keeps on suspending when switching between different tabs (already opened or new tabs). When the FF is hang I can do nothing in the FF, but I can operate on the Windows (8.1) without issues.

I have already tried: - Put new Firefox portable - the same issue - Close other tabs - Disable EMET for Firefox - Prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser set to True - Security.sandbox.content.level set to 2 - Disable add-ons plugins and start in safe mode

Nothing of above helps. I would appreciate If you could provide the solution. I attached Troubleshooting information.

Removed all addons, no change! SET Prevent Accessibility Services from accessing your browser to true, no change! Under performance set content process limit to 1, no change (I suspect this is a fake setting, it has no effect on number of processes!!)

PS Everyone else I know that uses Firefox has the same problem, is Mozilla trying to kill it?

First thing, why is there no "register button" on the forums, tell your UI guys this IS confusing, not might be confusing, you have to go through this question submission to register at the forums. Been on the Web since I started hosting a BBS in 1988, I should not be confused. I should be browsing the forums right now looking for the right thread to get some help in. Wonder where this will be posted? I don't know, because this is confusing.

As I'm typing this my characters are freezing ever 15 seconds or so. Is there something wrong with the current build? I've had crashing and "not responding" problems for the last month and a half. Have removed all plugins and Add-ons (not cool at all) and then re-installed, twice if you include today. You see, since the last update, which I thought might be a bug fix, Firefox is now using most all of my ram, usually about 3.2 GB of it, no matter if there is 4 tabs or 15 (which I would NORMALLY have in my browsing, so I no there was a point where Firefox had no problem with this). That sounds like a memory leak to me. My question is: Is there something wrong with Firefox right now? Seccurity Essentials and MBAM both say I"m virus and malware free, which would make 4 years of being virus and malware free, I make an effort to browse smart, so I'm pretty sure that's not it. I'm attaching a link to a Screenshot I put in my dropbox of the threads tabs of Process Explorer, what are all these threads? Why is firefox running all these Threads at once. Is this normal? I cannot use Firefox right now, is there something wrong on my end or your end?

While playing FarmVille 2 foxfire keeps hanging - says at top "not responding". I can load game and play for a few minutes but then hangs. Sometimes it hangs right after loading. Will not come back so I have to quit foxfire. I have been having the problem in last several weeks but yesterday it got really bad. I usually only had to restart foxfire once to get it to work. I have tried refreshing foxfire. Also disabling hardware acceleration. My plugins are up to date. My computer is only 1.5 years old and I have windows 10. I can play FV2 on Google Chrome and MSN edge but both are slow and jerky. I really prefer foxfire over the other ones.

After powering up my computer, or completely shutting down firefox, it takes about 25 seconds for firefox to start (blank page displayed) then another 25 seconds to load. I have tried all of the options in help section (re-installed, reset, cleared extensions, changed start up page, etc.) but nothing helps. No problems with Chrome nor Internet Exploder, they both start up and load instantly. 64 bit Windows 7 professional, Intel i7-7700K CPU at 4.2GHz, 32GB Ram, GTX 1080 video card, MVMe boot. This machine is a screamer, except for Firefox. Also have a very slow Thunderbird but it is not nearly as bad as firefox.

Firefox has become completely unusable for me because it has become very slow. It was fine on this computer (newer i7, 32GB ram, ssd) last weekend but not this. It is actually happening on two different computers. It becomes impossible to type (echo is seconds and windows reports that the application is not responsive).

However sysinternals procexp doesn't report anything much unusual for the computer as whole or FF. Speed test shows that my internet connection is fine and Chrome is working normally

I have paired sync down to only bookmarks and add-ons of which there are only 5.

The problem may be due to sync - FF seems to perform normally in safe mode or before it has asked for the master password.

I have a beef with visibility around sync - it doesn't seem to be possible to see how often it is running, how much data it is sending, how many disk writes are happening.

I am submitting this report from Chrome because FF is unusable.

Hello, I recently moved to Firefox from another browser and I am very pleased with it. My usage is that my computer remains on 24/7 with the browser open. I saw a paragraph in the help docs:

"Firefox's memory usage may increase if it's left open for long periods of time. A workaround for this is to periodically restart Firefox."

However this can be inconvenient when you have several tabs open that are logged in to various sites for work, which also retain state which is not restored when the browser is restarted.

Over a few days the memory "leaking" (?) is mounting up significantly as per attached. In summary:

Pre close - system RAM usage 12.5GB Post close browser - system RAM usage 8.1GB (4.4GB drop!!) Re-open browser with same tabs - system RAM usage 8.7GB (actually 9.0GB after all tab views were accessed and put back into the state they were in before closed)

From this simple test I can see that 12.5GB - 9GB = 3.5GB was hogged by the browser and not actually required.

As a developer I am interested to understand the reason for this memory leaking. Is there anything I can do while the browser is open to free it up? Or cause it to not "leak" in the first place?

Thanks,

Andrew

Firstly, I want to say right away that the problem arose with the release of the 57th version, that is, Quantum. Until the 57th version everything was fine. And also I want to say that this problem does not exist in other browsers. The problem manifests itself in this case: If you open the site of the dns-shop.ru or technopoint.ru store and, without waiting for the page to fully load, click on any item on the page, for example, on the left, select the directory partition, then the whole browser hangs. In this case, the browser stops responding to any pressing in the interface and generally does not react to anything, except for the completion of the process in the task manager. That is, I open the task manager and find there a process of firefox that uses almost all the resources of the CPU. After that, I end the process and firefox starts to work and writes that the "tab has dropped" (image # 3) I noticed the same problem on other sites, in particular youtube, vk, fb. Also, with fast transitions between site pages or streaming video, the browser may hang and the CPU load immediately 90-100%. Tried it on a completely clean firefox, on a freshly installed one, it ran without add-ons. All the same. I have to use google chrome until it's fixed ...
