  1. Ubuntu garbage data increases exponentially
    1. Intro and context

Hello. I am a power user that works in software and web development. I have been using Firefox on and on for most my life, but full time as my main browser since late 2018. One thing I love Firefox for is its lightness on memory compared to that of Google Chrome, and also its open web standards, open source, privacy, ethical owners, and customizations. I have been using Windows 10 up until July 9th 2020 before I switched to my first main Linux desktop. I have always kept my eye on CPU and RAM usage, as high CPU drains battery and running out of RAM results in a system crash. I actively keep many tabs open (less than 100 but more than 60) I ensure that they are light. I mostly have GitHub tabs open, but I keep a few other things open as well, mostly Wikipedia/wiktionary and duckduckgo tabs, a pcloud (file service) tab, but sometimes a youtube tab or two (rarely a reddit tab)

    1. Issue

I have been noting that garbage collection is getting exponentially worse over time. When I got my laptop, I was able to keep 2-3 fully packed profiles open at all times, and never having to close Firefox until shutdown (after about 12-16 hours uptime) I rely heavily on Firefox profiles for organization. It has been getting exponentially worse. Starting in late 2020, I had to reduce the max number of open profiles to 2, and in 2021. In early January, I had to start closing the profiles once a day to free up 2-3+ GiB of RAM (swap doesn't change much, that is the garbage data that isn't being cleared, it normally ends up at 800 MiB to 1.7 GiB by the end of the day) and now (as of January 22nd 2021) I have to close Firefox 2-3 times a day to prevent my system from getting overloaded, as Firefox eats through 1-2 gigabytes of RAM per hour, even when idle. I have noticed several processes titled `web content` that use 200-600 MiB each (there is usually 2-7 of them) I am wondering what I can do for Firefox to prevent high RAM usage. For reference, here is my main profile in idle mode:

Mozilla is refusing to let me upload images right now, so I will link them

https://github.com/seanpm2001/seanpm2001/blob/master/FFTechSupport/Jan22/MProfile1_Idle_1.22.2021.png

Here is my usual 2nd profile in idle mode:

https://github.com/seanpm2001/seanpm2001/blob/master/FFTechSupport/Jan22/MProfile2_Idle_1.22.2021.png

Here is the RAM and SWAP usage before my 2nd refresh today (uptime: 8 hours 46 minutes)

https://github.com/seanpm2001/seanpm2001/blob/master/FFTechSupport/Jan22/FF_GF_Open_1.22.2021.png

And here it is with Firefox and Nautilus closed (I forgot about nautilus before getting the first 2 pics, it uses a lot of memory depending on its usage):

https://github.com/seanpm2001/seanpm2001/blob/master/FFTechSupport/Jan22/FF_GF_Closed_1.22.2021.png

I have lately suspected that GitHub may have gotten heavier, or is sending too much data via AJAX methods, but I am not entirely sure.

    1. System specs

Device: `Dell XPS 13 9XXX`

Operating system: `Ubuntu 20.04 (Focal Fossa)`

Linux Kernel version: `5.4.0-48-generic`

Processor type: `Intel Core i5 10th generation`

Processor specs: `Intel® Core™ i5-1035G1 CPU @ 1.00GHz × 8`

Processor mode: `x64`

Desktop environment: `GNOME 3.36.1`

Windowing system: `X Desktop environment 11`

Memory: `7.4 GiB (8 GB)`

SWAP file: `2.0 GiB`

Firefox version: `84.0.1` - I haven't updated in a while due to fear of memory increase and instability

Number of Firefox profiles: `61` - no new profiles created since December 26th 2020

I am wondering what I should do about this. I work with hundreds of projects, so I can't close too many tabs, as it becomes hard to access and manage. I intend to close 16 tabs in the next month, as I am freeing up some projects.

Greetings, I am trying to fill out a PDF form using Firefox's built in PDF viewer and form editor. I'm running Linux (Ubuntu) with Firefox 84. I am able to successfully view and "Open" the PDF within the browser, and even edit the text properly. However, upon saving or printing, the text gets rendered with a massive font size nullifying the ability to edit in browser. I've been trying to find some online resources without success, and can't seem to find others reporting a similar case.

I've disabled all extensions and restarted Firefox, but did not notice any change in behavior. Any tips for debugging? Attached are two pics of the PDF form while editing, and then the rendered PDF after saving.

Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit) Running HTTPS Everywhere Running Privacy Badger Firefox set for standard enhanced tracking protection HTTPS-ONLY mode set for all windows

At my bank and a few other websites using HTTPS as standard operating procedure, Firefox gives me an error that the site is NOT using HTTPS and gives me the option of using only HTTP! This is unacceptable, financial transactions must be secured with HTTPS. What is the fix for this?

I'm spread thin and don't have the personal time resource to keep hunting through thousands of miscellaneous support articles that, from their titles, I haven't a clue whether they are relevant or not! (Though I tried investing an hour or so in this exercise getting nowhere.)

Sorry, I didn't save copies of the same error message on three different HTTPS sites.

Recently it happened every time I tried to download multiple media on a page. On Firefox "Page Info > Media", I selected a batch of media files, say pictures in .jpg format and clicked "Save As". I was prompted for file folder. After selecting the folder, the batch of media files were not downloaded to the folder. As I exited Firefox, I was prompted whether to stop the downloading. Weeks ago, the selected batch of files would be downloaded immediately as I clicked "Save As". (Environment = Firebox 84.0.2 (64 bites) on Windows 10)

As captured in the long thread "What's the difference between ALLOW and ALLOW for a SESSION?”, with a lot of handholding from jscher2000, I managed to set custom choices for privacy and security the way I wanted on my mac computer (blocking all cookies in all windows, with exceptions saved for ALLOW, ALLOW for SESSION and some for BLOCK). To accomplish this, required enabling deletion of cookies when Firefox closes.

My assumption based on information I got in the above mentioned thread, was that even when deletion of cookies is checked for when Firefox is closed, cookies for websites identified as exceptions with ALLOWED, are not deleted.

However, this is not what happens. A specific example is tripcheck.com, which stores custom itineraries for cameras in cookies. I setup quite a few of these custom itineraries and saved them and they were OK until I closed Firefox, when they were deleted, as the cookie was deleted. This website is setup as ALLOW in the Exceptions list.

As explained in the above mentioned thread:

"(2) Scenario Two

[X] Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed (checked)

Firefox shortens cookie expiration to session only unless the site has an ALLOW permission in the exceptions list. “.

I am more confused than ever, the settings do not appear to be working the way they are meant to work, not only for session cookies but also for what should be "permanent".

Am I doing something incorrectly or am I misunderstanding how setting should work?

If cookies of websites setup for ALLOW are deleted when Firefox is closed, the setting is defeating what I am trying to accomplish: saving cookies for websites that I use and save data in cookies (such as recognizing the computer, what’s needed for 2 step authentication, etc.).

Thanks.

I usually watch YouTube video's at 1.25x speed, and I noticed recently that it seem to make some audio distorted. So far I've only noticed it on lower notes, but it causes to sound a bit distorted and warbled.

I noticed it on this video: https://youtu.be/IubSudelVmw?t=429 at the tagged time, and also on a channel called The 8-bit Guy on his intro theme. https://youtu.be/d3NIe1jTZMc

Again, this is all at 1.25x speed (or faster), and this only seems to happen in firefox. I made sure to check and see if it was my speakers, which it isn't because I can also hear the distortion through headphones.

I'm not sure there's much to be done to correct the issue, but I thought I'd post about this in hopes it might get checked in a future update.

Today, Google Calendar is not opening. I keep Google as a pinned tab set to automatically open when I start Firefox, so always available. But today it did not open. No error message, just a blank screen and the blue line moving across the top of the window. The same thing is happening when Zoom webinar registration attempts to save a calendar item to my Google calendar. No error message, just a white screen and blue line moving across the top. I am able to open Google Calendar in Chrome and also can open it in Firefox by opening a new tab and then repinning it. But if I close the browser window and the re-open it (something i have to do every day or two to keep GMail from bogging down - that is another question!) then the saved pinned tab will not reopen again and I have to go through the manual reopening process again. Any clues? Thanks!

I have done all the suggestions From Zynga..cleared cache, deleted web content, rebooted, reinstsalled their Launcher+ program so you dont need Flash and flash is disabled, I did virus and Malwarebytes scans, even did a sfc/ scannnow, I changed the Firefox settings to allow pop ups and set to privacy to standard. It starts to load but the page stops and locks up and I am left with a white window on the left where the farm should load ...the laptop to a point sometimes I have to reboot to close the window. It used to work just fine. I know my way around a bit but not an expert..just cant play on one of the laptops..frustrating. It started about a week ago. All other programs seem to work ok. Appreciate any help..Thank you.

I find that images generally show on webpages such as the front page of a news site. However, when I click into a specific article, the image which is usually near the start of an article in a lot of cases does not show (so it's not a "always never shown" situation); it's as if it's been removed from the webpage syntax i.e. there's no white space section showing something is missing. One example (of many I could include!) is https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/phonics-revolution-the-new-sound-of-reading-in-the-nations-schools/7A5UVZ55NAOJEQACLKELCNEU6U/ I verified there are images there by restarting Firefox with Add-ons disabled (which starts Firefox in Safe Mode), and also by opening in another browser. So I went thru and disabled *all* add-ons and restarted Firefox. Images still don't show! These missing images only show when I run Firefox in Safe Mode.

In the back of my mind, there is/used-to-be an option to limit the size of images on a page(?) but I can't find any option now. I have also refreshed Firefox (a number of times; including a total de-install, reboot, re-install) but the problem remains. .. What am I missing? I'd like to be able to see these images.

Thanks.

Hello All,

I was working on a Google Apps Script to convert a Google Form entry into a Google Calendar event. Nothing too crazy so I'm not sure that the JavaScript I'm using would do anything to the browser. I could access Google Calendar just fine this morning and then all of the sudden, my calendar page wouldn't completely load. It loads the upper and left panels but not the actual calendar. There's no error message popups, the loading status just keeps spinning.

I've cleared all cache, closed/reopened the browser, restarted my computer, refreshed Firefox, opened Firefox in Safe Mode, tried a Private Window, uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. I can access Google Calendar just fine on Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome.

Web Console shows a lot of warnings and an Exception error but I don't see anything that gives me a clear understanding of what the problem is. Halp!!!1!1
