Ant Video Downloader eating up all available system memory

This started two days ago. I did not recognize what was happening, but the computer slowed to a point of complete unresponsiveness. I had to hold the power button in for a hard shutdown. Next day, I was watching a YouTube video, the video stopped playing, and the computer slowed to a snail's pace. Task Manager revealed something was using up ALL system memory. A look at running processes showed that the culprit was Firefox.

Firefox would start normally, then gobble up all system memory over a few minutes, rendering the computer almost inoperable.

Tried garbage collection, CC, and minimize memory usage under about:memory. This would temporarily reduce overhead, but then it would climb back up next time I started Firefox.

The Ant Video Downloader underwent a redesign days ago; this memory issue started exactly two days ago, on Friday evening, the 7th of January, 2022.

I disabled the add-on. At this moment, Firefox memory use is 642,716 KB of an available 12 GB. There seems to be one main process using the largest share of memory (200-300,000 KB) with 12 other firefox.exe processes running concurrently, all using smaller amounts of system memory. Firefox memory use no longer climbs until all system memory is consumed.

Is there any way to rein in memory use by Firefox add-ons short of disabling them? Are other users reporting this issue? How are add-ons vetted prior to use with the browser? There are few of these video downloaders available. Most are merely copies of a single piece of non-functioning software—but listed under different names, supported by what are clearly fake reviews. Is anyone verifying the integrity of these add-ons in addition to their developers?

In this case, the developer is based in Hong Kong.

Thank you to the community for any assistance offered in this case.

Hello. I updated Firefox yesterday and I have 2 little problems:


1. Can't limit number of processes. Option in settings is missing. They are always about 8 FF processes, so it's hard to kill them quickly from task manager.


2. I use Win7 with classic theme, FF is set to use system theme, and userchorme.css is put in Firefox profile folder. I don't like new unreadable tab design and and modern designs at all. Also I like simple classic look. After last update my URL-toolbar and active tab starts to display white. They were correct colour before update.


I'm uploading screenshot and userchrome.css. Thank you in advance for your answers.

As of version 91 I think it was, around middle of 2021 (last year), in the dropdowns from the across-to-the-top bookmarks menu, the items are spaced out vertically way too much. So much space is wasted. I like the spacing they had before that version. I just want to go on record as giving feedback that I don't like it, and wish it went back to the original spacing. I have looked at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1346987 and know there's all sorts of weird stuff I can do to customize my Firefox to get the spacing I want, however, my point with this post is to get feedback back to the Firefox developers to see if they will consider changing it back. If posting here is not the best way to get feedback back to the developers/designers/product-owners, please let me know the best way. I couldn't find another way.

Time is passing, new versions releasing, but problem are same. Firefox 71 had a good looking colored cleartype. Fonts was clear and pretty. And new versions have a monochromatic cleartype, which makes fonts to look like sh1t. How to take back a colored cleartype? Just tell me, how. I tried many gfx.font_rendering.cleartype_params, but nothing is working.

Win 7 pro 64 bit OS, Firefox browser, system "stable" for 3 years, or as "stable" as windows ever gets. My malware tool "Super Anti Spyware" license is expiring. Trying to update, firefox flags the website & gives a warning about a security risk if license renewal proceeds. I like the SAS tool, it consistently finds more problems than any other. A Malware Bytes scan that is clean can easily show a dozen cookies and Trojans when scanned with SAS. I have been successfully using the tool for over a year without problems. Yet I am reticent to ignore the warning. What do you think ? I have about a week to decide on a course of action.

FF has hijacked my PDF files, i.e. opens them online by default. I have selected "open in Acrobat 9.5" in the Settings menu / Applications, but it still opens the files in the web viewer. How do I stop that short of uninstalling Mozilla? I am using Windows 7 Enterprise and this problem just started with the last FF update.

Firefox will not save ANY new passwords. Some older ones still work. Checking menu->passwords gives 'no logins found'

I use Thunderbird Mail which I had not updated for years. I was starting to get a lot of certificate errors of some emails so I did an update (and set auto update) It's now at 91.4.1. This update broke Thunderbird in that is needed a passwork every time is started, or sent email, or attempted to check the server for emails. Totally unusable. Searches to fix this suggested two files are used, and one post suggested a third file. Suggestions were delete these files and Thunderbird would recreate them. I did, it did and the problem remained. However the third file mentioned in only one post DIDN'T get recreated. From memory the three files were cert9.db, key4.db and logins.json and I think it was logins.json that didn't create. I created a dummy file of the same name and now I can save my email login.

As a result of the above cert9.db, key4.db and logins.json were deleted, from the Firefox profile as well as the Thunderbird one.

On starting Firefox I quickly found I'd lost all the logins, and started re-adding them as I needed them. This worked for a while, but now I can't add any more. Firefox still prompts to save but next time that site is accessed it asks for the password again (earlier sites are still remembered) The dates on the files are logins.json 14/11/2021, cert9.db & key4.db 15/11/2021 (current date 26/12/2021) I removed all these files from the Firefox profile, started Firefox and it recreated the two db files with the current date, logins.json was created with the date 13/11/2021, which is the date of logins-backup.json Next I deleted the three files and logins-backup.json and started Firefox, db files recreated but not logins.json this time.

In both cases the earier web sites still remember the passwords and the laster ones don't, and firefox still shows 'No logins found'

Where are the passwords stored? It's clearly not cert9 or key4, there's a hight source that can recreate these files

Is there a registry problem?

Thanks

When I search for autoplay in about:config I get quite a few matches and have disabled all of them (I think). Yet video boxes/windows still popup blocking part of the page. Is there any way of stopping them? At least now the sound has been muted. But when I checked permissions for a particularly aggravating website I see that in Permissions I see autoplay is allowed/default. It seems Firefox is intent on disrupting my reading by these incessant and pestering videos, 99% of which are utter drivel and have nothing to do with what I'm trying to read. Its like web design by 8 year old children.

What is the solution for killing video popups once and for all? As videos often don't even work in Firefox I've relegated video watching to Chrome which is fine. I use Firefox for reading and Chrome for watching. No problem.

FF 95.0.2 (64-bit) started to "eat" memory / CPU till it gets dead

Good day! Things were fine for years till the problem with my FF (95.0.2 (64-bit), Windows 7 64 bit) started ~two days ago. As it started it persists every time I try to us the FF. Because of this new non-disappearing problem I had to move to Chrome instead.

As soon as my FF is opened and even when it has only one tab with no activity inside, its memory usage starts to grow rapidly and in a matter of minutes comes from ~900MB to ~6GB+ with the CPU usage "balancing" between ~25-45%. If I browse the used memory value grows a bit faster.

Along with that: - When the FF memory usage comes to ~85% of my memory, the FF browsing fails showing symptoms similar to a network issue (the network at the time is fine). - When the FF is closed, its processes are left along with their memory utilization keeping the same high rate till the FF processes are killed manually. - No add-ons / extensions or anything else were installed for months.

Please, assist in solving this sudden problem.
