Hi, for the last few weeks, Firefox has been showing ridiculously high disk usage and memory usage - near 100% - growing steadily from the moment I open the program until it stops responding, crashes, screws up my system (mouse cursor hanging etc) and eventually I manage to end process.

Internet Explorer on the same laptop - Windows 8, 8GB of RAM - is fine.

Things I've tried: - Making sure Firefox is up to date. - Turning off Firefox multiprocess - Disabling add-ons - 'Minimize memory usage' in about:memory - Resetting Firefox - Restarting Firefox - The other advice at this page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-uses-too-much-memory-ram?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=High+memory+usage

What can people advise?

Why is Firefox 78 writing to disk constantly? Even when the browser is idle, the hard drive light on my computer blinks non-stop, and I can hear the constant noise coming from the hard drive. The problem is with the browser because the Processor Explorer (available from Microsoft) shows Firefox as doing the constant disk activity, and hard drive stops making noise when the browser is closed.
