This problem is causing my whole PC to stutter and LAG whenever I want to play games

here is a screenshots of the task manager

I tried to close it one by one by "end task" option but still, every time I open Firefox again these tabs or whatever they are are back and using memory more than any browser

Hi,

I am signed into a Firefox account. I have used this account on at least three different computers. I have downloaded the application anew at least a dozen times.

Firefox randomly, from where I sit, opens things in French rather than English. How can I keep it in English unless otherwise specified (I occasionally want German or Japanese)?

Thank you.

best, Sea

Why, with not very many active open windows, and just after opening, is FF using 175% of my CPU, not counting all the separate listings in my Activity Monitor. Plus it's using nearly all 16 GBs of my RAM. With every new update, I pray it will mean the browser will just work, and not use up all my computer's resources, but it just never does. Pretty soon, more & more of us will just give up on this browser, which used to work better, years ago, and has only gone downhill since.

When 'Clear Now,' Cached Web Content; is clicked, it does not zero out. (It used to clear completely).

The browser webpage has been refreshed, the browser closed and reopened, and the computer restarted but the cache does not reset.

This issue started on the morning (Pacific time) of June 26-Is this a known glitch or am I missing a detail?

I'm not sure what I did when using Multi Account Containers (Must have clicked "yes" to always open in a specific container when accessing Microsoft, www.office.com. I enter user name and password and Firefox containers prompts me to Always open in container and I click no. It's like I'm stuck in an endless loop, each time I enter user name, password and two-factor a new tab opens and I have to do it all over again (Never getting into office.com). However, when using private windows I am able to get in. Can I turn off, "Always open in X container"? Thank you.

I have this problem. It just showed up after installing a brand new ARRIS modem exactly like the one I had. "Your connection is not secure" error when trying to log in to my modem's login page at the local address. There are several fixes that I saw, none seem to help. Tried the SSL refresh and it screwed up the browser. Now I get to figure out how I had it set up before the "refresh". Like I said this just started in Firefox and it prevents me from accessing the modem console period. If I use Edge it does not block me. (yuk) It does show a "Not Secure" message in the address bar but it will allow me to access my Modem. Why cant we get a fix for this. Its a local web address not on the internet. Should be a way to add to a allow local address list and ignore certificates or whatever else is causing it to block access.....

Email me when someone answers the thread seems to be broken on this page. I would like a email please so I can find a response.

Hi,

I have a web application which runs perfectly on firefox versions below 103. Meanwhile, I had to change my laptop and I installed latest firefox version on my new laptop. I have a login page in my web application which isn't working in the latest firefox version. But, the application works perfectly even now in the older versions below 103. What might be the reason?

I've been using Firefox for 25+ years, always keeping it up to date. I've been a customer of CIBC Bank for 20+ years and using their online website since its beginning. Last week I've been unable to login to my accounts without going thru an inconvenient and time-consuming telephone code procedure every time. Previously, this procedure had been in place only occasionally as a secondary method of identification.

CIBC advised changing my anti-tracking and cookie settings. After trying all the alternatives, there was no change. Checked out Edge browser, and it was the same. Checked out Firefox and Edge on a second computer and it was the same. Installed the Chrome browser, and it works fine!

No problems accessing any other website. Anyone ever experienced this? Any suggestions?
