I just replaced that computer, yet it is still happening when I am in Facebook, although admittedly not as often. Why and what can be done about it?

Anyone else notice excessive cpu usage with Firefox 77.0.1? It's been going on for the past week. 17.6-27% cpu usage just sitting here on the support page only after a fresh restart of the computer.

I also just noticed tonight not a single page would load. Switched to trouble shooting which disables the addons and pages loaded. Closed the browser and opened it again to be in normal mode and started disabling addons. The one I disabled to get pages to load again was Adblock Plus. Go figure of all the addons this is the one that is going to kill the browser from loading anything. I've already sent a report for this on the addon itself not sure what else to do there other then enjoy a bunch of adds for a while.

The one that concerns me more is Firefox just sucking away at the power for no reason at all. I can fill the top bar with tabs normally and not be using this much cpu. I would say it has developed a memory leak of sorts or something considering it's using 0 disk and network activity yet currently is using 18.4% cpu and 635MB memory for this single page being open.

Hello. From time to time, when using firefox I find that firefox-bin process uses very high cpu process (on top command output it shows even more that 100% (i don't understand those specs)) It doesen't seem related to any specific website. I close tabs one by one and it remains the same. Even when closing firefox window, firefox-bin remains using 100% cpu for about 1 minute or so. Then a crash message appears, and I click send report.

Any suggestions accepted. cheers. Firefox 77.0.1 MX Linux 18.3

After my browser being open for a while, usually a few hours, Firefox starts to get some major hanging in some tabs; I can have two windows open, one with a youtube video playing and another with like reddit or something else, and when browsing reddit, I get major hanging when interacting for around 7 seconds.

I recorded a couple performance profiles to see what's causing it, and it seems to consistently be a very long JIT or GC call, also labelled as "Cycle Collection" in the waterfall view.

I saved the profiles and I can upload them, but I'm not sure if they come with any private info so I'm reticent to add it to this thread.

I've watched the Task Manager (the Firefox one and the Windows one) while this is happening and memory usage in the Windows task manager seems to rise quickly over a few seconds then suddenly drop back down. I'm not sure if that's relevant. In the Firefox Task Manager I didn't see anything particularly salient other than energy usage spiking up just after the hanging is over.

This doesn't only seem to happen on Windows because it also happens on my Linux laptop occasionally as well, in a very similar manner. I didn't collect any evidence on Linux yet.

This has been happening for quite a while now, on multiple versions of Firefox in a row. I'm using 79.0b3 Developer Edition right now on my Windows machine.

Closing and reopening Firefox usually causes things to clear themselves out and I don't get such long hanging for a while.

I would expect JIT and GC to happen in much smaller chunks to avoid hanging, it's strange that it takes that long for one call.

Hi,

I have an Intel NUC 10 i7 (integrated Intel UHD gpu using latest drivers 1.100.2731.0) and whenever I open tabs with videos the CPU consuption goes sky high and overheats the system.

Checking this page: http://jdashg.github.io/misc/webgl/low-power.html

In Firefox I get: {"powerPreference":"low-power"}

 => ANGLE (Microsoft Basic Render Driver Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0)

{}

 => ANGLE (Microsoft Basic Render Driver Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0)

{"powerPreference":"high-performance"}

 => ANGLE (Microsoft Basic Render Driver Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0)

In Chrome/Edge: {"powerPreference":"low-power"}

 => ANGLE (Intel(R) UHD Graphics Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0)

{}

 => ANGLE (Intel(R) UHD Graphics Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0)

{"powerPreference":"high-performance"}

 => ANGLE (Intel(R) UHD Graphics Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0)

Which is aligned with the lack of GPU usage in Resource manager in Firefox.

How can I fix this? I am sure I accessed the same pages in the past without problems in FF. Some update has messed this.

Tks

relatively recently (within the last month), Firefox has become prone to hanging. It seems to happen with randomly, and can be trigger by just about anything, e.g. scrolling a window, clicking on anywhere in the window. It appears that even with content process limit = 1, it still runs with a minimum of 5 process threads. Don't know how these are ordered, but the 'last' of these, as displayed in Task Manager (yes Windows 10 2004), seems to be the one with a wait chain.

This is quite frustrating, but although I am willing to help collect relevant diagnostics, I do not know sufficient to know which and how.

All helpful suggestions welcome. The laptop is not CPU, Memory, nor disk bound when these waits occur.

I enjoy playing Flash based browser games but they've been running slow recently. I opened my computer's task manager to see what was going on and noticed that as I kept playing, the amount of RAM being used by Flash kept going up. All the way to 1.5 GB of RAM. I think that flash is saving pieces of game data that are not necessary. Anyone know how to make it stop doing that?

After Firefox has been open for a while and/or was used for a while, memory usage is at nearly 3GB. This happens both with e10s enabled and disabled, Firefox versions 52-54 at least.

I have looked at about:memory and it is still inconclusive to me. I uploaded an anonymized one to here: https://mega.nz/#!nxIzwZYD!0V5b44D1Xfst4XlAPvbTEIVjRZXvgP6Y4Xs_jJkeeew

When I have Firefox running, Windows is freezing occasionally. Sometimes it is freezing every few minutes; sometimes a couple of times per hour. I find errors in the Windows event log from the ESENT service which correlate to the freezing events (see attached image).

The freezing events seem to occur more often if I have more Firefox tabs open.

I have tried running Firefox with add-ons disabled and have uninstalled and then reinstalled Firefox and the in both cases the freezing events still occur.

The freezing events do not occur if I use MSIE or Chrome, but I would prefer to use Firefox.

I have checked Device Manager for errors - there are none. The S.M.A.R.T. utility reports all OK for my C drive.

I am looking for advice on how to resolve this problem.

Thank you!

Should I get the same performance benefit from Firefox's DXVA implementation as a standalone player? It seems that no matter whether or not I have hardware acceleration enabled, watching an .mp4 video in Firefox uses the same amount of CPU (around 15%). If I save the video and watch it in a standalone player, I have almost 0% CPU used.

While using Firefox, at some point the sound will stop working. For most applications, they will simply run without playing sound. If I try to load a video, on YouTube or any other player, it will try to play the video for the first 3 seconds, and then the video will crash. If I try to open any file with Windows Media Player, it will give a "your computer is low on memory" error (an assertion that Task Manager will not confirm) and refuse to play any files.

Closing Firefox then reopening it solves this issue for the next 10-90 minutes or so. Closing the Flash plugin etc. doesn't do anything.

Firefox freezes at least 5 times a day, and I have to do a Force Quit. But I can't restart my Mac because there is still a version of Firefox running, so I have to press the power button for 5 seconds to shut down. Upon opening, I'm fine for an hour or two, and then the same problem. After force quit, it appears Firefox is no longer running, but trying to reopen it, a message says only one version can run at a time.
