I downloaded firefox 58 and made the changes listed in your article, but I am still getting multiple sessions of Firfox when I opent he browser. I set both of the browser.tabs.remote.autostart options to False as advised. SO what would you suggest I try now especially since at least 2 of the sessions are huge memory hogs taking over 100K of the available physical memory.

Last week I switched back to Firefox after a couple of years, but what I noticed is that once opened the interface seems to be very slow. When checking my CPU usage, once Firefox gets opened, the "windowserver" macOS process spikes to 80-100%. I also see other processes like "mds_stores" and "mdworker" consume a lot of CPU.

If I open Chrome besides Firefox, without actually loading any website. I can see my mouse movement lagging when hovering over the Firefox browser. I do not have this when hovering over Chrome.

Currently, I only have one extension installed + already tried to run in safe mode, but the experience is the same.

Any idea what could cause this?

When I have a video playing in the background (for example a Twitch stream) and use Firefox in a way that causes 100% CPU usage (for example navigating a Google Maps 360° view or scrolling a complex website excessively) I get interruptions and even repetitions of short bits of the playing sound. This issue started after updating to Firefox Quantum and is quite annoying. Is this a known issue? Any potential workarounds? I'm currently using 58.0.2 (64 bit) on Windows 10 16299.

I have read and tried several of the fixes for this but I continue to have firefox over a period of time use up to 6 gigs of ram. I have spent several hours on this and I just want to let mozilla know that I am going to give up and go to a browser that doesn't cause my whole computer to freeze up because of this memory problem. I have used and recommended Firefox for many years but I no longer fell like I can do this with the current version of firefox. I did not have this trouble before this version.

 I also do computer tech work and I will now have to recommend a different browser to my clients in case they have

the same problem as me.

 I dont feel that it should take several hours of trying solutions to see if I can fix something that is a problem I didnt have

until this version of firefox. So much for it being much faster and better, this is not my experience.

I updated Firefox on Linux Mint 18.1 to latest version this morning. (I can't tell you what latest Firefox version number is, because:) Firefox opens and after about 45 seconds the computer freezes completely, with me doing nothing. If I actually try to log in to Firefox or do anything else, the freeze takes about 5 seconds. I have to do a hard reboot. I've never had this trouble before, and other browsers (Chromium, Opera) work normally. Any suggestions?

Firefox is using consistently greater than 40% CPU usage. I will only have a handful of tabs open, and the only plugins installed are 1password and React Dev Tools, both of which about:performance says are running fine.

Im on 53.0.3 (64-bit) MAC OS 10.12.4 (16E195) 16GB Ram 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7

At first startup there is no problem, but after usage for about 20 minutes I start to notice slow downs as well as my computer fans fire up as the laptop heats up. This only ever happens when using firefox. I am a web developer and recently switch from chrome to firefox and I am loving the tools and community but having to restart my browser every 30 minutes is quite concerning. Would love some help to solve this problem.

Thanks so much for your help!

I'm getting a strange jump in memory use by Firefox. I'm monitoring Firefox memory use with the add-on called "Memory Restart." I keep 13 pinned tabs on my browser (they always load at boot-up). Those 13 tabs take up around 140MB of RAM. I also tend to keep around 50-100 tabs in my browser (I used Session Manager). But when I boot up, none of those tabs open until I click on a specific tab. See screen shot -- this is how my Firefox session typically boots.

After all the pinned tabs load Memory Restart shows around 140MB in use. About 10 seconds later I get a "flash" on the screen with a yellow banner under the tab section that says "Firefox memory has increased by more than 669MB since last refresh interval" (see image). Something is causing Firefox RAM use to jump immediately from 140MB to 669MB about 10 seconds after all my pinned tabs load. What could be causing this immediate large chunk of RAM use, even though none of the non-pinned tabs have been selected. ???

A paranoid thought, but I'm looking for some feedback.

I'm aware Firefox is a memory hog and there's some kind of memory leak situation, but it can easily get up to 2.5 G of the "private working set" memory.

I recently noticed Firefox doesn't have a value for its "Image Path Name" in the windows task manager. Coupled with the high memory use, does this look at all suspicious?

The picture attached is a few minutes after Firefox was loaded. I have a session with about 60-70 tabs restored (the tabs themselves do not have the web pages loaded, its just visible in my tab bar with the name oft he site so when I click it, it will load the actual page).

The picture shows the memory at around 500mb - Sure, I have a lot of tabs, but is there really that much memory consumed by those tabs when they are functionally just bookmarks? This was a minute or two after Firefox was restarted.

The part that makes me feel paranoid is the path not showing up in task manager. Makes me think of some kind of trojan-horse type virus running off the process Firefox is identified on (if that makes sense?).

Somehow, with 18gb memory, Firefox can bog my system down after my computer's been running for a day. Am I expecting too much thinking it should stay "quick as a whip" for at least a few days?

Is any of this unusual or something I should look into closer?

Hello everyone:

I got this macbook

13" early 2008 Processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Memory 4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM Graphics Intel GMA X3100 144 MB Software Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 (11G63)

Firefox 39.04

I have personas and classic theme restorer installed so I can have the tabs not be on top, and a non moving squirrel picture on the frame. I got the computer used last year, maybe the year before, It's been lightning fast, but I use it for business social media stuff, 30 twitter pages open to monitor hashtag pages. while loading other pages I get script slow errors,

The computer gets HOT the fan is beginning to make noise because it always runs. Even if I open one ONE ebay page (in FF) and let it sit there, it will within 20 seconds stop responding and get HOT. As I write this on safari the machine is running fine fan at slow idle, room temp 82 Humid no A/C.

The computer was wiped, new OS NEW FF 39 new when I set up this machine. When using FF along with Safari or Photoshop 12 I think, they can all be on and working, but FF will freeze, the others will work, and the fan runs so fast it lifts the machine off the table.

I have read and tried so many of the message board fixes, including the about:config tell the flash player not to load in each page repeatedly if not used, no help. I take a screen pic, and then restore it to original if it don't work. Something about a plug-in container. Activity monitor also says FF uses more than 450MB ram Really….? Normal….? 1 tab…? Well safari has 418 MB …..

Done some of the fix it's on the FF help pages, turned off plugins safe-mode still spins up the turbines. Not installed a new FF as there does not seen to be a real fix in doing that from what I have read.

Had this machine for a while, use to work fine, lightning fast, no fan unless watching a movie, now I don't even try using youtube…..

No other add-ons readers, tool bars etc. installed. Ever. I basically do the same thing all the time. Also for some reason even though flash is always manually updated, videos even GIF's on twitter now place an error in the center of the post "your browser does not support video playback"

How can the dam thing use more than 100% of the cpu resources anyway……? WTF ???? Using some of the CPU from tomorrow ????? Some kind of payday loan FF has for the CPU ????

Load_payday_CPU_firefox_interest-rate_120%_  :true  ??? Where is it ?


I can load other info if anyone gives me an idea where to get it terminal, activity monitor, air traffic control, what have you.


Thanks.
