20 GB RAM usage, pagefile takes up all space on C: - 300 tabs in Tree Tabs

First, this post is basically Congratulations for Firefox upon working almost flowlessly under this extreme heavy load without crashing. Saving/loading sessions works well. (which is unexpected but makes me _very_ happy :-)) Firefox exits properly without any exceptions, no matter how long it runs, or how many times the PC is sent to STR mode meanwhile.

Second, everything is fine, except RAM usage. No matter how many RAM is installed, Firefox takes up all of it after a few days of normal operation. I have recently upgraded my PC from 16 to 24 GB of RAM only for this sole reason to see if anything changes, but it did not produce any noticable change, except that it takes 5-7 days for Firefox to fill up all the RAM instead of the 3-4 days before. Disk space on C: drive was nullified by Firefox as the paging file went up to 50 GB.

I want to hunt down this thing. I have approx. 300 tabs, 2 addons, and Hardware Acceleration is disabled since otherwise Fox hangs several times a day (have to be killed from outside). Pics are attached. https://addons.mozilla.org/hu/firefox/addon/tree-tabs/ https://gitlab.com/kroppy/TreeTabs

I'd like to get suggestions where to start.

  1. Disabling or replacing the adblocker ?
  2. Inspecting memory usage on Process Manager (about:processes) and Task Manager (about:performance) pages ?
  3. Installing some external tools like Firemin ?

Please don't suggest neither safe mode nor disabling all addons, since that makes it impossible to reproduce this amount of load, which is the primary reason behind the symptom.

I PrtScr'ed Process Manager and Task Manager, see that RAM sizes per page are normal in Task Manager, but not in Process Manager (10 times more).

CPU usage is totally normal for this load, even when memory is in the heaven. See the TaskMan pic. (I suppose that's because of ad blocking)

Thanks for any ideas,

Peter B. (I'm PC enthusiast)

I am currently having problems with my Firefox browser. For example often if I type something into the google search box at the right of the address bar and hit return nothing happens until I go down and select Bing instead of the google setting. Also in hotmail (I am on a desktop) if I go to reply, the original is now ether twice. This does not happen if I use Google browser. But I prefer Firefox as I have used it for years.

My concern is if I delete Firefox and reinstall it, I may lose some of the settings or bookmarks that I have set over the years.

Any suggestions? Please simple as i am old and not computer savvy.

Your help would be so appreciated. I am currently on Firefox 107.0 (64 bit)

Thanks, Anthony

After moving to Firefox 91.9.1esr I found problem with System theme 1.2. The color of tab add button was changed, and the button is not visible with my Windows 7 classic windows system theme. So, I'm trying to find a way to port System theme 1.0 color scheme to newer firefox versions.

Creation of a simple theme with firefox color extension works. But it is unable to recreate the effects related to active and inactive window color changes. As, I had to use bitmap to get the OS blue color transition pattern.

It seems the system theme is stored in omni.ja file. Modification of the omni.ja seems to be not a practical solution. So, it would be a better way to create an addon theme with the same code as the System Theme 1.0.

The first question is, if it will be possible to create a theme with the same code as a system theme has. Will it be able to perform the same way?

The next question is: Where the source code of the system theme is? I was unable to find it in the Firefox source. It seems, it is not stored in any obvious location.

Hello :)

I'm using Firefox 107.0 on macOS 12.6.1 and I'm having weird issues with the displayed font. It appears on the startup screen of Firefox and on websites (see screenshots attached).

The garbled font is called ".SF NS".

I've tried turning the option "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" on and off without success.

I have also tried enabling and disabling hardware acceleration - also without luck.

The issue does **not** appear in safe mode. Unfortunately resetting the theme and disabling all extensions hasn't helped either :(

I have also downloaded and installed a font called "SFNS Display" but the issue persists.

Uninstalling Firefox (with AppCleaner) and reinstalling hasn't fixed the problem.

I don't know what else to try. Can someone help me please? :)

Prior to the decision by Ubuntu to use a Snap to package Firefox, Firefox was routinely updated by APT. This was largely invisible to the user who merely had to authorize the update. However with SNAP there is now the annoying countdown that appears every day when I go into Firefox. I have not researched Snap vs Flatpak vs Aur vs ..., so I do not understand why Ubuntu does not update the Firefox SNAP in the backfround. Undoubtedly there are advantages to Canonical in using Snap, but they haven't sold those advantages to me!

Like a lot of people I spend a lot of my life with the browser open. Linux does not generally use proprietary apps for access to tools which use such apps on mobile devices, so using Twitter, or Youtube, or Reddit, or various Google tools, just uses tabs within the browser. This means to update the SNAP for Firefox I have to exit out of every application on my desktop, and then wait while the SNAP refresh runs in a terminal window, not even a GUI tool. Furthermore this is not just the time to apply the update, I also have to wait while 3MB of code is downloaded, because Ubuntu doesn't bother to preload the Snap update! Strangely Ubuntu 22.04 does not even automatically run a SNAP refresh during a reboot, when everything, including the SNAP daemon itself is shut down! One of the first things I had to do after upgrading to 22.04 was to apply a new snap of the daemon itself. Ubuntu does not provide a tool to shut down the snap daemon. You must open a terminal and kill the daemon.

Although I can tolerate the time it takes this update mechanism to run, I cannot tolerate the time it would take me to restore all of the activities that I had open within Firefox. At this moment, a typical day, I have eighteen tabs open in Firefox. Ubuntu demands that I shut down Firefox, which will discard all of that state information, sit around while it mindlessly loads and applies the SNAP that it could have done in the background, and then I have to restore those eighteen tabs.

So I open the terminal, enter "sudo killall firefox; sudo snap refresh". But then when I go back into Firefox it naturally wants to warn me that the previous session was terminated abnormally. I know that I killed it. The message Firefox chooses for this is misleading "Sorry. We’re having trouble getting your pages back." Instead of, for example "Firefox failed abnormally. Do you want to resume your previous pages?" Since I cannot easily avoid the Ubuntu implementation of SNAP for Firefox is there a Firefox configuration option that says "Yeah, I know Firefox crashed, but I would prefer not to be annoyed by a misleading message when I start it up again if there is a snapshot to recover from."

Hello, I'm experiencing a issue with my web server specifically on Firefox, allow me to explain: 1. A user clicks a login button and receives a HTTP 401 response, which the user responds to by entering their credentials in the built-in Firefox browser popup then selecting "Sign In". 2. After authenticating successfully, "Save" is selected when Firefox prompts to save login information for this website. 3. User then navigates to a page outside of the origin/index (ex http://192.168.0.3/foo/bar.html, origin/index being http://192.168.0.3), to which they're prompted to save login information again. Issue here with the second save login prompt.

If in step 3 the user selects "Save" this issue goes away, however, more than one popup for saving user credentials is not a good look. Additionally, the save login popup in step 3 is filled out with bogus user credentials; blank username and "password" as the password.

If "Save" is selected in both steps 2 and 3, about:logins will show two entries: 1. 192.168.0.3 (REALM) 2. 192.168.0.3 Where entry 2 contains the bogus user credentials and entry 1 contains the correct user credentials. In entry 1, the REALM is set as the correct realm I send out during the digest authentication process (per digest auth specification).

During both instances of the save login popup, in the Firefox Browser Console the following is printed: LoginManagerPrompter: Couldn't process supplied URIString: http://192.168.0.3 LoginManagerPrompter.jsm:994:16

As I've mentioned this happens with Firefox and never in Google Chrome (Chrome only has 1 save login popup after the initial authentication).

Would someone be able to shed some light on this behavior? Why is Firefox saving a login with my REALM and another without? Is the failure in LoginManagerPrompter related?

Thank you.

Hi Firefoxers, I am wanting to test an email before I send it out to clients, the email has a link to a video in the heading of the page. When I click the link in the email it opens the webpage, but the link defaults to "preview not available" the rest of the page is viewable, but not the image of the video. At first I thought it was a broken link but when I send a test to colleagues using IE it opens automatically and they have the option play the video.

I made the following changes in Preferences > Privacy & Security > Autoplay > Settings > Allow Audio & Video

I refreshed the page, didn't work Restarted Firefox, still didn't work

Can I get some advice on the correct settings or where I am going wrong.

Been using Firefox for over 6 years as main browser. Yesterday 30th of november 2022 i went in and opened my account page on Youtube. When loading all the preview videos on the main page FireFox froze for several seconds. Could do nothing. Never happened to me before.

i tried closing and open browser and go into youtube 15 times. Always the same result. Firefox freezing on load-in for 5-10 seconds.

I thought i had gotten a malware or something. So to be sure , i scanned with MalewareBytes and several times and did a virus scan. Came up with nothing.

I did some searching on google for firefox issue freezing. Found out that users have been having issues with firefox for a long time, several months, with firefox browser freezing. But no real solution to solve it.

I use Mozilla FireFox Version: 107.0.1

No other browser i tested, chrome, Edge, Brave have this issue when visiting youtube. ONLY Firefox!

Just to test something, i went into the network settings in Firefox settings. I changed the pre-selected setting from "use system proxy setting" to "NO proxy" and activated the setting "Activate DNS over HTTPS".

BOOOOOOM --- Problem solved!!!!!

What ever is wrong with Firefox 107.0.1 - i suggest FIX IT ASAP if you want me around as a user. Your browser is NOT OK as of now. I have never ever been forced to change any network setting for ANY browser during my 31 years using the webb. -Ok, almost true, maybe during the Robotics 28.800kb/s days back in 1993 ....

I have shortcuts to launch Firefox in two ways, one with no commands and one with the following command: -P "Personal" --no-remote This used to show two separate Firefox icons on the taskbar. Firefox windows opened in each profile would be grouped with the same profile and kept separate from other profiles. With the latest update I still have two icons, the Default profile has a Firefox icon and the 'Personal' profile has a private browsing icon. Even though there are no private windows open. According to latest updates, if I open private windows then they should be grouped with their own icon. However, whether I have Default or Personal profile windows open, Private windows are grouped with their standard browsing windows.

This is on Win 10, Firefox 107.0.1

Any ideas how to fix this? Ideally I would have the standard Firefox icon on both profiles then, to conform with the private window separation update, my private windows would be separated from the standard windows but also from different profiles.
