Latest Firefox uses THREE TIMES as much RAM as Firefox 3.6, and is slower to boot.

My laptop has limited RAM - about 2GB. Of the browsers I've tried (Chrome, Safari, Firefox), Firefox uses the least RAM, but it still uses around 1GB of RAM to display about 10 tabs (gmail, facebook, reader, and assorted other websites) - this seems insanely high.

Thinking back, this didn't seem to be a problem "back in the day", so to speak, so I tried installing Firefox 3.6 again.

Lo and behold, with the same addons and the same tabs open, Firefox 3.6 is using 300MB of RAM where Firefox 21 used 980MB of RAM. In addition, navigation is noticeably snappier in Firefox 3.6 - probably because it doesn't have to page to disk as often (which would often lock up my computer using Firefox 21).

I thought that newer versions were supposed to improve memory performance, not triple the required memory...

Firefox is suffering from seriously annoying lag spikes on my mac, while other browsers work perfect. The problem is the worst when watching Youtube video's or when typing (text only appears after 1-2 seconds when the spike happens.)

I've tried the about:config stuff, I used Speedyfox, googled for days but nothing seems to be working. What's worth trying? I love Firefox and I don't want to switch to another browser.

Could it be firefox plugin process? It seems to be eating a lot of RAM from times to times (I updated Java and Flash).

Thank you

I just bought a new computer that came with Windoze 8. I hate it. Firefox works occasionally.

It is pinned to the taskbar, but I cannot get it to start. I click on it and nothing happens.

When I go to Start and click on Firefox, it does not staty. IE and other programs start, but not Firefox. Is Microsoft blocking it? I am trying to run a business and I have to use Firefox on a Windows machine. Any suggestions?

I was trying to manually restore some files from a previous installation of Firefox, and in so doing I messed something up and now one of my addons is not working properly.

I tried removing the addon by clicking the Remove button next to it in the Extensions section of the Addons Manager, restarting, reinstalling the addon and then restarting again, but it still does not work properly.

It appears that the only way to fix this is to completely uninstall and wipe Firefox and all associated files and reinstall it again, and then reinstall the troublesome addon and any others I might wish to keep. How can I do this?

Hello, I'm trying to get a video to play in firefox. I've tested it in all other browsers and on iPad and mobile and have had no issues with getting it to play, except in firefox. I get this error: No video with supported format and MIME type found? I'm a front end guy and I'm not sure what to do here. Here is the site: www.manhattanphysicalmedicine.com.

I've contacted the host (GoDaddy) and they said to include a web.config file that re directs the browser to pull up the .ogg file. They are hosting on a windows server so i was told that an .htaccess file would not work. Here is the code in the web.config file:

<configuration>
  <system.webServer>
    <staticContent>
      <remove fileExtension=".mp4" />
      <mimeMap fileExtension=".mp4" mimeType="video/mp4" />
      <mimeMap fileExtension=".ogg"  mimeType="video/ogg" />
    </staticContent>
  </system.webServer>
</configuration>

Here is the HTML:

 <video width="560" height="300" controls autoplay>
 <source src="images/flashintro.mp4" type="video/mp4"/>
 <source src="images/flashintro.ogg" type="video/ogg"/>
 <object id="FlashID" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="560" height="300">
 <param name="movie" value="images/flashintro.swf">

Don't know why the code above is not showing?

I placed the web.config file on the root folder with no success. This seems harder than it should be. Maybe I'm missing something obvious? Is it worth bothering with .ogg files? Is there another option?

Any help would be MUCH appreciated!

Thanks,

Gerry

Before the recent update, 19.0, I would google something and see [PDF] next to a link. I click the middle mouse button to open it in a new tab. Firefox would download the file and open it with Adobe Reader. I like this.

With the new update 19.0, the pdf file would be opened in the new tab. I have to go and down load it and then open it in Adobe. I don't like this.

I go into preferences under applications. I look to see if I can change this. Next to Adobe Reader document, I choose Use Adobe Reader, but when I click on a [PDF] link, it still opens the file in Firefox and not Adobe.

I want it back to the way it was.

I just updated to 18.0 yesterday. Since then, Facebook will crash FF upon login without fail. I can get to the main page (where I'd log in) but as soon as my home page starts to load, Firefox is unresponsive. I haven't noticed any issue with any other websites.

Flash and Java are all up to date, and I've checked my plug ins. I didn't have any issues with 17.xx, whatever was before 18 on the Release Channel. Any possible solutions/ troubleshooting I may have missed?

I'm running OSX 10.7.5, FF 18.0.

Using Firefox 20.x , configured to always be in private browsing mode. For some reason, after a while of browsing, when I open a new empty tab, there is content saved on the dashboard of recently visited sites. This seems almost exclusively to happen only with images from i.imgur.com . These sites do not go away after closing and reopening the browser. The only way to get rid of these is to clear all my recent history. I should not have to do this, as my browser is always in privacy mode.

I am really not sure how to test this. If I clear my history, and go to imgur links, it does not happen right away. After a few days of web surfing, I will open a new blank tab and see there is content available in the new tab window. All those spaces should be empty.

Any ideas on how I can hone in on what is going on here?
