Hi! Recently, in my laptop, Firefox started freezing at every single startup; after force shutdown and restart, though, it works flawlessly each time, and for the whole duration of the session at the computer. Can anyone please suggest a solution?

My laptop set-up is practically identical to that of my PC, but the latter doesn't exhibit the same malfunction.

I've tried anything I could, including reinstalling the browser, removing all of my bookmarks (about 10,000) and addressing extensions (Decentraleyes, Default Bookmark Folder, Disable Tab Detach, Flagfox, I don't care about cookies, Keepa, Notifier for Gmail, Privacy Badger, To Google Translate, uBlock Origin, Undo Close Tab, Video DownloadHelper and Youtube's Annotations No More), but not even safe mode improved the situation in the least. Windows Defender also hasn't detected any malware and my web surfing habits are as safe as it gets.

The only deeper data I could gather is that the problem manifests with a progressive, rapid surge in CPU and RAM usage; the former, for example, is saturated to its total 16 GB in a matter of about 20 seconds.

My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 7586 with Windows 11 64 bit; Firefox version is the latest, 100.0, and, by the way, none of the recent updates has improved the situation.

Thanks to anyone who might come up with an educated guess!

I have to go into task manager to stop background processors from freezing my computer. Closing background processors in disk and memory. Sometimes there are as many as 10 background processors running but it seems to be a only a few and can't tell which one's until I figure it out. Sometimes I can by the amount of usage. I have to do this several times as I use my computer.

Hi, since the last update, Firefox is taking a huge amount of memory and slowing everything else on my PC right down. Right now this support tab is the only webpage I have open, yet you can see in the screenshot there are 31 Firefox processes running, and over 1G of memory being taken. I've followed all the help threads and taken the steps in them - it's made no difference. Please can you help me find a way to tame Firefox. Also - I'm really not an IT expert at all so please can you tell me in very simple language :)

In the past three weeks, I have been experiencing issues with the Firefox browser on my iMac MacOSX. First, the browser, after some amount of time of usage, seems slower. Second, if I keep windows with multiple tabs open overnight and then try to use them, they don't seem to function. The YouTube videos will not play. I can't move the tabs. I need to close the tabs and window altogether to get YouTube to function. Lastly, as of now, I can't even select and move tabs. I have never experienced this problem with Firefox on my iMac.

Prior to this I don't remember having these issues. What has changed?

I am hoping someone from Firefox Development sees this and that something can be done for those of us who need to have several tabs open simultaneously. I often find myself engaged in research that for convenience requires that I have several tabs open which eventually leads to browser slow down, hanging, and sometimes a crash. Im convinced this is the correct analysis since defragging the ssd fixes it every time. I believe it would be very helpful if Firefox were to add a compressor to its file storage routine, first blush thoughts, possibly one compressed file per tab. When I get into heavy research I find myself defragging sometimes several times in a day, which temporarily fixes the problem. Any chance this can be added, or if anyone knows of a fix to this issue? rgds, j

When I use firefox, it gets slower and slower over time to the point where it's a chore just to type. And this is on a recent MacBook pro. Everything else is fast. But Firefox gets unusable. The UI should not be a bottleneck like this.

Retarting speeds it up for a while, but then it gets slow again in a few hours.

Is there some kind of profiling I can run that I can use for filing a bug report?

Due to my work I often have several tabs open for upwards of 12 hours at a time. This being said, for some reason after roughly 8-14 hours of being open my internet slowly gets weaker and weaker, it never completely turns off, and the internet works perfectl for my browser, however other programs (discord, photoshop, minecraft, anything that uses a passive amount of information) slow down until I restart firefox completely. It sometimes slow my 70mb/s+ upload/download to .1mb/s measurable upload/download and if i can fix this somehow that would be wonderful.

Just today, firefox began slowing down and soft crashing for minutes at a time. During this time, I can interact with websites, but it doesn't change the visuals or show that anything has changed. new tabs open but don't show up, youtube video audio plays but the screen remains fixed. Firefox usage for just 7 tabs is well over 5 gigatybes of ram and 10-20% cpu at all times.

I attempted everything on the help page, including: killing and restarting firefox, updating firefox, updating windows, restarting my computer, killing firefox and rebooting again, disabling extensions, and updating graphics drivers.

after rebooting with the new windows update, firefox ran smoothly for a brief minute and showed normal cpu/ram usage, but quickly climbed back up to pre reboot numbers.

I have used FF for years, now V82 on W7 starts out fine, but bogs down to point you can not type. I have tried all the fixes noted here without success. Monitoring both Windows Task Manager and FF Task Manager shows nothing unusual when this happens. Internet speed is 100MBS.

Turning off addons, limiting Tabs, clearing history, updating drivers, minimizing background programs, etc., has little or no effect. FF just bogs down, and usually doesn't recover until restarted.

This appears to be particularly noticeable on ebay, but does happen at random on other sites. Where else can I look for a clue to what the problem is?

For the last two days and multiple times loading the firefox browser, it has taken about five minutes for the browser to load on our Dell Inspiron desktop, running Windows 11. Nothing happens for about one minute, then the spinning blue circle appears, then firefox starts to load, then the screen goes back to the desktop, then a black screen appears, then some white rectangles start to appear across the top of the screen, then the screen goes back to desktop, then back to the black and white top-of-browser window that is still trying to load, and then finally after the five minutes, our home page loads. However, clicking on a bookmarked website, or typing in a website in the address bar results in a 2-3 minute wait for that site to load. And this happens time after time with the computer still on, and also startup after startup. If this should continue for a few more days, we will start using Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge, and also cancel our subscription to Mozilla VPN. This cannot continue!

Firefox is slow; so slow I have to use another browser, Brave, to get around this.

It is not about 'how many open tabs' or 'what extensions are doing'. I can have one profile open with one tab and still wish there would be a better response.

I have lots of profiles. I think the performance was better when I first started Firefox on this computer. I wonder If I eliminate profiles will I get a better performance.

How do I go proving this? - How easy can I take the profiles folder copy and rename it then start firefox with a profile folder and only one profile and one tab then What?

I did not gain a significant advantage in the load times for firefox. The load time for the browser with only the one empty tab 22 - 26 seconds . The load time for yahoo.com main page 31 -36 seconds. The load time for a link on the yahoo main page 20 - 22 seconds.

The question was "does having a large profile folder slow response time for firefox"? I believe I am seeing that this is true. When I load the yahoo profile it can take 10+ seconds more to resolve the main page and up to an addition 5-7 seconds to resolve the opened tabs.

Know that the browser was the only user process opened at the times of the tests. Know that the internet connection is the primier package and I have been monitoring the speeds frequently recently. I am good with the internet connection times. Know that I know the quick fixes and either there was no improvement or the inconvience of doing with out dark reader is no option.

Now understand I did not run these tests through a testing suite. These test were a couple one offs I used to form an opinion. Everyday usage forms an opinion in everyday users without hard data to coincide with the usage.

I am getting more & more frustrated and exasperated, as simple browsing has become tortuously slow, with many sites taking forever to load, or only partially load, or have to be refreshed a couple times, to finally get it to load. And videos constantly freezing up, despite lots of free RAM, and a very high-speed internet connection. I assumed whatever was causing this would've been addressed in the last update, or two, but no, it's only getting worse.

I am facing a strange issue where the Browser doesn't load the website for a minute and shows server error. However, this behavior is not specific to any website and the server error shows randomly. Sometimes the browser loads the website normally while other times it shows server error. Please check this screencast: https://jmp.sh/jEu4D9k to understand better. So, I initially tried to open calendly.com and it didn't load despite my multiple reload attempts. However, when I tried to reload it after a minute then it came to life.

I have been facing this issue for many months and I tried almost every solution I found on Mozilla community pages like Resetting Mozilla, Setting No Proxy, Turning Off IPv6, DNS Prefetching Changes, Turning On/Off hardware acceleration, Uninstalled Mozilla and Installed a fresh copy, Changed to Mozilla Developer Edition, etc. but no luck. Please note that the other browsers are working fine and don't have any issues.

Hello!

I got this issue when i am clicking on input tools (on screen keyboard) on google search page,it opens up with a 3-5 second delay and this problem started after i installed version Firefox 90.0.02 64 bit.

My OS is Win 10 64bit. All updates except KB5004237 are installed.

I do have a couple of add-ons like Default Bookmark Folder and uBlock Origin and i even disabled them but still the issue stands with input tools delay.

I also refreshed my Firefox but that didn't help either.

I try to keep always open some tabs in Firefox,, probably already too many (it's not unusual to have 25-30 tabs opened, each having it's internet page). I'm using Firefox up-to-date on Windows 10 Home already at version 20H2.

So, quite quickly Task Manager comes to report that Firefox takes 1400-1600 of RAM (out of the laptop's total of 6 GB). At the same time, Firefox's internal Task manager pretends that memory taken by all tabs does not sum up more than cca 650 MB !!! This is concur with about:memory tab if I try that too.

Here's a capture taken with Snip&Sketch having both Firefox's tab with it's internal task manager, + Windows's Task manager over it (attached).


I feel like I'm cheated here, but ... who is most closer lay blame on ? Who is more likely to lie in this case ?0 Firefox or Task Manager ?

I tend to believe it's Firefox, but I'm willing to have other opinions. Are there extra memory taken by Firefox that is not reported in the about:memory tab, or in it's internal task manager ? (I'm onto this, I believe that there is something that is not reported, but so far have not a shred of evidence on this).

This is exactly why on my computer at work (on an OpenSUSE install) I gave up on Firefox and turned to Chrome, because on this one I can trust the internal task manager, and it does not crush my Linux box like Firefox eventually have done with it's crazy memory consumption and/or CPU huge load from time to time. I am still using Firefox on the home Windows 10 laptop because I share it with my wife, and decided she is to use Chrome, and myself Firefox:-)
