Firefox 81.0.1 consumes RAM until my computer freezes. High RAM consumption was always a problem with Firefox, but the recent update seems to be much worse. Why can't Firefox release memory like all other high resource programs? After about 30 minutes it's consuming 2GB, and my 8GB RAM gets maxed out. I use very few plug-ins and no frills in the browser.

I use Xfinity email that,m like all email applications, has compose, reply and forward controls. I have loaded Grammarly for Firefox (on Widows 10) as a spell and grammar checker. When I open any Xfinity mail window Grammarly does not attach. If I turn Grammarly off and on using the task bar then it does load. Using the Chrome browser, every window has Grammarly attached. So, what is stopping Firefox from attaching Grammarly as an extension to any editing window? And how do I fix it? Any help is appreciated as it is a pain to have manual control on each window in a flood of emails. Bob N

Hi! As the title states, since the latest windows update (am now on 19041.508), anytime I go on a webpage on Firefox it's extremely slow to load, however once loaded the page is as fast as it should be!

I don't have any antivirus other than windows defender, and disabling it/the windows firewall doesn't fix the issue, so it doesn't seem to be linked to that either, on the online forums such as this one I found it was also common to have issues caused by hardware acceleration, playing with that setting does not help either.

Another friend of mine has the same issue as me since the last update, so I'm assuming it's not something unique to my situation, is this a known issue for which a fix is available? Searching for one has yielded only outdated results.

Thanks a lot!

In Firefox 81 removing the checkmark under Tools/Options/General/Tabs in the checkbox for "open links in tabs instead of new windows" disables the downloading on certain sites (i.e. ASUS). The browser just blinks and that is it.. This started with rel 79.

For those that want to reproduce the problem: 1. Go to Asus.com 2. Select "English" as language 3. On the drop-down menu click on "Consumer" 4. Under the line "Select a Product" chose "Networking" 5. Under "Select your Product" click on "Product Series" 6. On the drop-down menu select "Wireless Routers" 7. Then click on "Product Model" 8. On the drop-down menu select i.e. "RT-AC66U" 9. Then next to the router picture click on "Driver & Tools" 10. Under "Driver & Tools" select "BIOS & FIRMWARE" 11. Then click on "DOWNLOAD" button in the "Firmware" box 12. The browser will then do a short and quick "blink" and not download anything 13. You will also see a little line above the "DOWNLOAD" button saying "2020/10/08 Downloaded" with a little downward arrow in a circle right next to it 14. Check everything and you will that nothing was downloaded. 15. Try it with and without a check mark in the Firefox options as described above.

This started with firefox rel/ver 79.

I wonder how long it is going to take, till a developer reacts and confirms this "serious" problem. ASUS says it is a Firefox problem. I would really appreciate a reaction, since I am not using firefox anymore because of this.

I've had firefox for a long time on multiple computers, and on the one I'm using now for 8 years. Only within the past two months has this issue popped up. That being: I cannot get any audio from youtube no matter what. There is no speaker on the tab to show it, and I don't mute my tabs ever so it's not that. Even muting and unmuting it does nothing.

The video always buffers for 5 seconds upon loading the player before autoplaying with no sound. Every video does this, EXCEPT for if it's flash based which I tested via this link. Flash audio players have no problems either. The speaker icon DOES show up for these ones, but nothing else.

And there's another problem... sometimes, it fixes itself! Out of nowhere, while I'm doing something else on my comp or on my phone (just away from the browser in general) when I let it loop through a playlist, the sound just happens. It startles me every time, because there seems to be no rhyme or reason.

I've done the common checks you do for your computer audio and it's none of that. Browser only. Restarted comp and refreshed firefox; nothing. Completely wiped firefox from system and reinstalled (which gave me a whole new host of issues for another topic); still nothing. For 2 months it's been agonizingly painful trying to get answers so I can stop focusing on it.

I'm trying to move back to Firefox from Pale Moon. I've exported my logins/passwords file from Pale Moon, as an XML file. However, I cannot figure out how to import that data into Firefox - Import from another browser doesn't include Pale Moon, and I have no Import from a File option that I can find.

I also saved back the files key3.db and logins.json from Pale Moon, but I cannot find their locations in FFX, so I'm guessing it doesn't use those files any more?

Any help on how I can import my Pale Moon saved passwords to Firefox is appreciated!

So, starting yesterday (10/10/2020) Firefox suddenly began having playback issues on YouTube in the form of very obnoxious and repeat micro-stuttering. I'm not sure what caused this because the version of Firefox was installed over a week ago (81.0.1), and nothing changed before this happened. But here's the thing: my laptop has the same version without suffering stutters. It's only happening on my desktop. I've updated windows, updated flash, cleared cache, updated drivers, turned off vp9 stuff, installed add-on h264ify -- I've done every solution I could find to fix this and it refuses to fix. It keeps happening.

I'm sharing data below to see if you guys can spot anything wrong with the browser itself.

Recently firefox has started printing everything in duplex (double sided). The print dialog that pops up when printing has the duplex box unchecked, so should print single sided.

In about:config print.printer_HP_LaserJet_4050_Series_PCL_5.print_duplex is set to 2. If I change this to 0 I get single sided printing for a random small amount of time, but at some point it reverts to 2 and duplex printing.

This does not occur in other browsers.

Firefox has disappeared as an icon pinned to the dock. I can open it, from applications or upon startup. If I minimize Firefox, it shows as an icon of the last open window only, not the Firefox icon. Right clicking does not give any option for pinning it either.

Possibly related, UBlock has not been able to update either. I uninstalled it, then reinstalled, same issue.
