Why is Firefox using so much memory for GPU processes?

Hi there, I have noticed that my Win11 Asus laptop is always short on RAM (16GB available), with Firefox taking up a significant amount even with only a few tabs open.

As you can see by the attached image, when I go to 'about:processes' it shows that GPU processes alone are taking up nearly 1GB of memory, with the only tab running being the 'about' page. I only have 6 extensions (uBlock Origin, Zotero, Containers etc) none of which are meant to be RAM intensive.

What are these GPU processes that are running, and how can I reduce the memory used by them?

Thank you.

This has started to happen whenever I try to do a Google search. I type in something into the search box and before I can go any further I'm hit with having to go through reCaptcha. This is a major pain in the butt. How can I disable this?

It doesn't happen when I use other search engines - just Google.

Thanks... any help would be appreciated!!!

Since the last upgrade of firefox to version 125 we cannot download anything anymore from our internal servers using firefox. At first the download is blocked because of an insecure source (but the server is on our internal LAN). Then when we choose to allow it anyway, the file always is corrupted. That means we cannot save any report results anymore.

I already tried to uninstall firefox and install an earlier version (124) but the result was the same.

Please help to solve this issue asap

Back in November 2023 I had the misfortune of a software engineer not doing his job correctly and he reinstalled the OS on my laptop instead of repairing some software that wasn't functioning correctly. Mercifully, I have had Microsoft support working on recovering my data, which has proved a tremendous task. 4 months and counting.


We have now finally managed to recover my passwords for my browsers, but they are encrypted. Microsoft Support have therefore asked if Mozilla do a decryption tool as they cannot open the file without it being decrypted first. If I was using Microsoft Edge, they would have been able to assist as that is a Microsoft product, but as Firefox is a third party application, they've asked for assistance. By the way, these are NOT scammers or hackers 'helping' me, but Microsoft support and I get everything emailed about our support etc.

Thanks in advance.

When saving/opening file dialog is on screen the whole program freezes and take forever to unfreeze to the point I have to force quite the program. The problem seems to be only in Firefox.

Safe mode - same problem, Have done a complete refresh - same problem. Clean uninstall and reinstall - same problem.

Have moved to Chrome - similar problems.

So Mozilla supports privacy rights- and I've supported Mozilla for that reason- but they want Whatsapp to be censored for "misinformation" ? How does that go together? Whatsapp was supposed to be encrypted and not even Whatsapp was supposed to know the content of messages. How would they know about misinformation? And how do they get to decide what's misinformation now?

I opened my laptop out of sleep mode and it quickly reset itself, and when it loaded back up Firefox no longer worked. Everything was working fine prior to the reset, but now I can load any websites, nor do any of the menus within Firefox work. I keep clicking on the menu button in the top right, but nothing happens. The only thing that seems to work is the add-ons icon. I can click that and it navigates me to the add-ons page, and from there I can get in to my settings, but that's it.

No websites will load at all. I've already tried configuring my firewall to allow Firefox, and I've removed it and re-added it to my exceptions list, but nothing seems to work.

Does anyone know what might be causing this, and what can be done to fix it?
