Firefox on PC and new facebook
When Facebook updated their system a few months ago, running it on firefox with windows 10 on a pc crashes mozilla. It happens if you are logged into FB for some length of time (say an hour). I have no extensions operating just plain firefox. I turned on task manager inside firefox to watch what happened over time along with windows task manager. Within a half hour, FB is using high energy impact and just about all available memory in the system and filled the cache as well. Eventually it just freezes firefox and I have to kill the program go back and clear the cache and often do a complete refresh of firefox

I found that FB pages would load memory over time so I no longer leave them open. I close a FB tab when I have finished with it. You can open it again later by clicking on it in "Recently closed tabs" in History.
So do I but it doesn't solve the problem. Even being open a half an hour is enough to slow firefox down to a crawl. No problem with any other sites, just FB
