Firefox 32 was running but started misbehaving, so I checked for updates and it updated to 32.0.1. It needed to restart which is fine with me. But it didn't restart.

Double-clicking the Firefox icon on the desktop brought up an error that Firefox was still running but not responding.

In Windows Task Manager I watched firefox.exe's memory usage gradually decrease from around 500MB to 2MB and then stay there for 10 minutes. I created a dump file but am not sure how to send it to anyone who might be interested. A zip of the dump file is 138MB which is far smaller than the raw dump file but I doubt whether Yahoo will let me e-mail a file that size. Next I terminated the process, after which Firefox 32.0.1 was willing to start and is operating normally at the moment.

I see people had the same complaint about Firefox 29 and some other versions, and obviously it isn't fixed yet.

It is possible to code Firefox so that, when starting and detecting that another firefox.exe process is running and not responding, it can ask if the user wants to wait for the other process or terminate the other process. For ordinary users this would be more friendly than teaching them how to open Windows Task Manager, go to the Processes tab, and ignore a warning from Windows about the danger of exiting a non-responsive process.

This is on my wife's PC running Windows 7 64-bit but only 2GB of real RAM, and Firefox only uses around 1GB of virtual memory because she doesn't open many tabs.

i've been struggling with saved passwords since the 29 update i think which changed the behavior of password manager. today ff has auto-updated to 32.0.1 and this update has wiped my entire saved password list which is horrific to me, i've got passwords stored in there from the last decade that I've got no chance of retrieving. good lord mozilla, why are you making everything so hard for your loyal users? i really pains me to do this, but i think i'm going to switch to chrome until you've got your knickers untwisted.

is anyone else seeing this?

High CPU & Memory issues - Excessive and unnecessary CPU usage in Firefox for Windows (see also questions1003966 & 998289)

I am using the latest version of Firefox, 32.0.1, on an HP Pavilion dv7-4141sa laptop computer, running Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit. There should be more than enough power here to run a browser without any problem, yet the computer is regularly being overloaded by the browser's resource usage.

I am currently measuring typical average CPU usage of 45% - with the browser minimised. That is to say, Firefox is not doing any browser jobs - it is not drawing on the screen - but it is using the most CPU of any process currently running. Why?

I am an ex-software engineer, and my understanding of current application development technology is limited, but I think I can say with some confidence that many techniques and software architectures exist that enable the suspension of program activity, or at least its reduction to a very low bare minimum, when the program is not actually carrying out its design function, which is in this case to draw pictures of website data on a screen.

There is a very serious problem here, one which means that I cannot run Firefox all the time, but have to kill it when I am not actively browsing, otherwise other applications cannot run to their full capacity. This is a great pity, because I have committed a lot of effort to making Firefox my primary web tool. It manages all my many bookmarks, contains my secure password manager (LastPass), manages my web security (via NoScript, AdBlock, and FlashBlock), just for a start.

Before any well-meaning moderators or other commenters start down the usual trail of "have you done this, tried that, disabled the other", I should point out that I have followed all the advice I can find, with no positive outcome. This computer is running a fresh installation of Windows, and a fresh installation of Firefox. At the moment I am running a new test Firefox profile.

The latest version of Adobe Flash, 14.0.0.179, is installed but disabled. When it is enabled and in use, Firefox's CPU usage seems high over longer periods, but overall there is little difference. It doesn't look as though the problem can be laid at Flash's door. A few other add-ins are installed, mainly those mentioned above, and Firefox is skinned with LavaFox v2-Green, but I have previously started from a clean installation, which has made little difference after an initial period during which things seemed to be better. Turning off or disabling various add-ons has made no discernible difference.

Just now I turned Flash on, and after a long period with Firefox minimised, Resource Monitor reported Firefox at 8% average CPU and FlashPlayerPlugin at 0.32%. While running a small video, RM reports FlashPlayerPlugin at about 45% and Firefox at 8%. After the video, Flash went back down to around 0.4%, and after a bit more browsing Firefox went to around 17% minimised. There seems little rhyme or reason here, except that Flash does not seem to be the culprit, although Firefox does seem to consume less when fewer tabs are actually active, as you might expect. I just refreshed more than a dozen tabs, and now Firefox is at 30%, but still not back up to the higher figures. Weird.

The CPU usage does vary a lot around the average, but 30% is still a lot for a program that shouldn't be doing anything above the minimum status maintenance, and still puts it at the top of my Top Process Monitor list. (Right now it's gone back up to 45%, without my using it in any way).

I have Telemetry turned on, so presumably Mozilla is recording some of the relevant data.

This is a very serious fault, which is more or less reproducible and which a lot of people seem to be experiencing. Probably more people have it than realise, because most users will not know anything other than that their computer slows down for some non-obvious reason; they may just think it's something to do with the computer itself, not knowing how to use the Resource Monitor and interpret the results.

Oddly, the problem does not seem to occur when running Firefox under Linux Mint 17, where the response is snappy and the CPU usage ostensibly low; I am going to look at this in more detail shortly.

I am not posting here for advice, but for information and as a form of bug report which hopefully other users will see. It will hopefully spare them a lot of effort and time in trying a lot of recommended "solutions" which will not work. The problem is inherent in the software, and can be solved only by Mozilla.

I am willing to supply any diagnostic data requested; as I said above, I have also turned on "Telemetry". However, I will not be trying out any more reinstallation/new-profile/add-on disable-enable-delete cycles unless I am asked to for very specific reasons. Please do not suggest courses of action which have already been mentioned elsewhere on this forum. I have tried them all.

The situation is very disappointing, but I have confidence that the Firefox developers will pin down the fault eventually and engineer a satisfactory solution that makes it viable to leave Firefox open all the time. Even with that restriction, it's still far better than the alternatives.

I just upgraded to Firefox v32.0.1 yesterday, and I see that keyboard-created emoticons like smileys (colon +right parenthesis), winks, hearts, etc. are not displaying in Facebook on status messages or comments. This isn't just for new posts, but for old posts as well. They were visible before the upgrade, and now they are not. I believe this is a Firefox/Mozilla issue, not a Facebook one, as I just checked Facebook on two other browsers (Google Chrome and Internet Explorer), and the emoticons do display. Is this something you can fix soon? Thank you.

I love Firefox and don't want to use another browser. I frequently get the error "Firefox is already running". I even created a batch file to kill the process so I can re-launch it. There has to be a real solution.

The key to my issue is... I use shortcuts to web sites from my desktop. This is what seems to trigger the error (but not every time). Please don't tell me to stop using shortcuts; that isn't a solution.

I am using Windows 8.1 64 bit Firefox 32.0.1 (had this same problem with all prior versions too)

In mid July, after the firefox update, I had decided to close firefox like I usually do before I open the client for my MMORPG Aion, so I did. I end up not turning on firefox for a few days and when I did my bookmarks were gone as well as my toolbar bookmarks and my history. I start to wonder what happened and then I realised that there was a grey bar at the bottom of my browser stating, "Sync encountered an error while syncing: Unknown error. Sync will automatically retry this action.." I had no idea why this would happen as I never had this problem before so I look at the firefox support database but since I'm quite the greenhorn when it comes to programming there was only so much I could understand. I did try looking for corrupt or locked profiles but I saw none. Now as of today it's going on 2 months since the problem began and just today I recieved the firefox 32.0 update but still have this problem so I'm at my wits end and I not sure if I'll ever get it working again. Also my sync account is the one under the new system I had updated a few days before the problem began it also seems to be working on my other devices. Im lost without my bookmarks please help.

With this new version of Firefox (32?), ALL of my passwords have been deleted, and any "AUTOFILL" option that was SUPPOSED to exist does NOT, in fact exist. My reaction to this abortion follows: 1) How dare you write a new version of your software that ERASES MY passwords on MY COMPUTER. That SHALL NOT happen again. 2) If I do NOT receive a FIX for this BUG by Monday morning, Sept. 15, 2014 I WILL (not shall) migrate all my browsing to another Browser and purge Firefox from my system, forevermore. For instance, SAFARI has fixed this problem on their browser. 3) You arrogance (or stupidity? or both?) is both monumental and bewildering.

I don't know when the problem started but it has been many versions of both Firefox and Adobe Flash since Flash has worked reliably and quickly. I have tried many solutions including uninstalling both Firefox and Flash and reinstalling them yet the performance problems continue. When the dialog appears to send a crash report, many times I do. My Firefox is 32.0.1 and the Flash plug-in is 15,0,0,152. Is there an end in sight for this problem? The standard answer is Mozilla pointing the finger at Adobe and Adobe pointing at Mozilla.
