I have many tabs like 200-300. Firefox crashed today. I also have 4GB page file on top of that. Strange! After I restarted Firefox it was using only 6.8GB RAM. Perhaps memory leak. BTW if I have browser.cache.disk.enable set to false. Is page file still used?

Thanks for help.

I realise that Firefox uses up a lot of Memory (particularly as it tries to run each Tab separately). However, my Firefox seems to keep increasing its usage!

I can start with a number of Tabs open & (after refreshing each Tab - to ensure it is "lice" & "active") I will get (according to Windows Task Manager) about 1,300MB in use.

Without opening up any more Tabs & without trying to run any Web-Based Videos, over a period of a few hours it will increase & increase & increase - perhaps getting up to 4,000MB!

I've cross checked with "about:performance" (to open FF's own Task Manager), to show the individual Tab usage, & that NEVER totals up to anywhere near the figures shown by the Windows Task Manager!!

Obviously, my FF is fully up to date!

Any comments!

I had a different issue I came here for, but I discovered a very serious bug while I was writing my question, so I want to make sure this gets addressed first.

After writing my question, I clicked the "share data" button below. I got a message "We can't automatically get your browser's troubleshooting data, please try these manual steps. " Without thinking, I clicked the link to the "manual steps." Unfortunately, instead of opening a new tab, which would be the expected behavior, clicking the link took me off the get help form page (the page I'm on as I write this). What's worse, when I used the back button to return to the previous page, everything I'd written was gone. Obviously, the expected behavior would be to not take the user off the page in the first place, but if for some reason it did, to autosave the writing so it can be restored when the user returns.

This kind of bug used to be a lot more common in the early days, when I first started using the web, 25 years ago. I used to have a boilerplate describing the problem because I was sending reports of the bug so frequently. I've only encountered it twice, to my recollection, in the last 5 years. Firefox's website would have been one of the last places I'd ever expect to find a bug this glaring and elementary.

Thanks!

I'm using a Surface Pro 7, running Win10H. Firefox had a brief period when I first installed it where the on screen keyboard would appear and work, that stopped after a few hours and has not worked since. I fiddled with the settings on both Firefox and my surface, though nothing has changed. Un/re-installing did not help, thought it could reset something. Any fixes or advice would be greatly appreciated.

For clarification, the Accessibility Menu on-screen keyboard does work, but the tablet-specific larger keyboard does not function. It does open and type in other applications.

Hi All

So recently I had some windows issues on my newer laptop and had to resort to going back to my old laptop for the time being. Before using it I restored the system to factory settings and such then reinstalled the newest versions of firefox and such then imported my profiles that I backed up from the new system.

Was working fine for few weeks but the last week or so I have noticed firefox has become sluggish in how it loads websites and such.

I have tried setting up a test profile and that new profile was reacting the same way very sluggish in loading pages.

I have also cleared my browsers cache wondering if that would help.

I have also tested loading pages in Microsoft Edge to see if it was browser or system related and Edge seems to be loading pages just fine so it has to be browser specific.

Any ideas what I should try next to clear this up as the sluggishness is getting old fast!

Thanks

When you are presented with a text field, sometimes when you type, a small list of words you entered previously will drop down. You can then select one of those previous words, or continue with what you were originally typing. This is the Autofill feature for Firefox.

Lately, it has been a pain. After an hour or so of use, the instant I click on a text field to type something (usually for searching), the autofill box would partially drop down, only for Firefox to completely hang up. Once you recover from the initial crash, the autofill bug would not appear until at least an hour later. I tried turning off Autofill, but it cost me access to my History, so I was forced to do a complete browser reset. This issue has been with me for about a couple of weeks, and I have no idea why it's doing this.

Thanks to terrible, productivity-sucking changes in the basic functions of the FF browser, I have started using other browsers. First - FF updates far too frequently - almost daily. No option to block update notifications. Never know if it's something trivial, an important security fix, or a major interface change. The 'what's new' page is always incomplete. 2nd - FF downloads software surreptiously through the sneaky "normandy" back door and inserts feature changes irregardlessly. Doesn't matter if you explicitly selected NO to enrolling in studies. Users can't get a straight answer on how to disable Normandy. Named after the Allied stealth invasion of Europe, it does the same thing to our computers. 3rd- FF caters to fringe techie desires with an onslaught of unwanted or unsuable additions that bloats the software, uses up CPU, or inserts intrusive attention-seeking diversions. I am forced to spend too much time after each update to investigate how to shut off unwanted surprises as well as unannounced alterations to my option settings. For example, if I press the mute button on my keyboard a very large media window pops up and takes over a sizeable chunk of my computer screen. It cannot be resized. It has no close button. Took hours to find out how to disable this. 4th-FF developers seem to expect users to have the newest computer equipment, huge display screens, and lot's of extra memory. If not, too bad. 5th - the recent puzzling, arrogant changes to the basic print function is evidence of that mindset. FF developers say they aren't going to let users revert to the normal "classic" small foot-print pulldown menu on the left side of the screen to preview, set up headers, etc. Too bad if the open window is too narrow to view this new intrusive, real estate consuming right hand display. Too bad that you can no longer simply seamlessly interact and accomplish the task. Too bad that the FF developers think they know better than you that you should change the way you work. 6th Reader view is an obscure feature. I do not want to be forced to use it. I do my best to strip out or ignore the overwhelming number of pictographs competing for my attention, 7th - I can no longer see URLs in the address bar. You've truncated them. I am forced to cut and paste them into a text editor to see them in their entirety. 8th - Firefox hangs video streaming sites like peacocktv.com. Windows Taskmanager shows that FF forces CPU and hard drive usage to 100%. 9th -There is no mechanism to escape, break, or interrupt FF's failed video stream. How sad that Microsoft's obnoxious Edge browser is better at video streaming. It uses far less system resources on the same video streaming site. AND doesn't hang the OS. It's likely FF's new unwanted capability to launch multiple picture in pictures - which I don't use - hogs resources. 10th- How about beta testing using 'normal' non-super techie /gamer users? 11th -FF disabled user Feedback. I stopped updating Firefox. Not trustworthy.

My Mozilla occasionally crashes on various websites but this is rarely a big deal and is usually restored without further problem. However, when trying to access my online banking (Co-operative and Smile) it crashes repeatedly after a few seconds, making these sites unusable. Anyone got any ideas why this specific site is a problem and how to overcome it?

My cookie cache is erased every time firefox closes and I only have Ecosia as an Add on. My security setting was strict but I changed it to standard. This had no effect. I'm not very familiar with Linux so a simple explanation would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance

P.S; The crash reports fail to submit. I don't know if this is related.

Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) on Ubuntu 20.10 is currently unusable as it won't open anything.

  • Firefox opens with no page loaded.
  • Clicking the single "getting started" bookmark does nothing.
  • Entering a search term in the address bar and pressing 'enter' changes the url in the address bar but nothing is loaded and the page remains blank. There is no indication that anything is loading.
  • Entering a url, such as "www.youtube.com", and pressing "enter" does nothing. There is no indication that anything is loading.
  • Opening the menu by clicking on the burger icon, then on "preferences" does nothing except make the menu disappear (same with most of the options in the menu).

In the browser console I see some errors and no request info (see screenshot).

I've tried `sudo apt purge firefox` then installing again, which didn't help. The problem started with ubuntu 20.04 (I only updated to 20.10 to see if it might resolve this problem).

I've tried the "refresh firefox" option, starting in safe mode, and clearing the startup cache, which didn't help.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Dear Community,

I have problem with my Firefox version 86.0 (64-bit). I have Windows 10 20H2 64-bit operating system. Firefox can't load some websites. For example I can load https://allegro.pl/ but I have problem sometimes with this website: https://allegro.pl/myaccount/newpayments_incoming.php

If you go there and use F5 key on keyboard (refresh website) sometimes this can't load. On other browser I don't have this issue. This very frustrated me because I can't work. On Windows 10 1909 on older machine (another computer) I don't have this issue with my firefox (this sam 86.0 version). So this is probably problem only with Windows 10 20H2.


Steps to reproduce:

1) Open new tab and go here: https://allegro.pl/myaccount/newpayments_incoming.php 2) Log in to your account for Allegro website (without account you can't load website) 3) When website loads normally you must refresh this website (F5 key on keyboard) few times (you must be patient, sometimes this can take some time) 4) When website can't load or it's load partly you can see that this stops loading when it try connect to analytics.google.com so I think that it is very strange behavior.

On other browsers on Windows 10 20H2 version this website works without issue. Only with Firefox I have a problem. On Windows 10 1909 version on another machine I can't notice this issue. Also on Ubuntu I don't have any problems with this website with firefox.

Can you fix it? I can't work on my computer with Windows 10 20H2 system. I musted to switch to another browsers (Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge). I contacted with owner of the website but this is not the first problem with Firefox on Windows 10 20H2 so you should fix it. I remember that I had some similar problems on another websites but I don't remember what was address for these websites.

Actual results:

Sometimes I can't load this website on Windows 10 20H2 64-bit: https://allegro.pl/myaccount/newpayments_incoming.php

When website can't load or it's load in a part you can see in the bottom of the browser that this stops when it try connect to analytics.google.com so it is very strange behavior.

This can be not problem only with this website.

Expected results:

I should load this website always: https://allegro.pl/myaccount/newpayments_incoming.php


I hope that you can fix it.

So I've been experiencing a rather annoying bug/issue, and I have a work around for it, but I would love if anyone could help me figure out the issue at hand. I couldn't find a relevant, up to date solution for this issue.

Basically, certain websites (the most notable being Reddit) will eventually no longer load. In fact, it won't even try to load. I will click a link from a Google search, or even just type in the URL for Reddit directly, and Firefox just does nothing. No error, no loading, nothing. The tab will stay blank with the URL listed as the name of the tab. I can't seem to tell if other browsers have this issue as it requires a bit of use/time to pass, but it doesn't seem to be an issue in Explorer. It isn't JUST Reddit, but it's only a couple of sites that this occurs on.

I do have a workaround --- if I tell Firefox to "Forget This Website" - suddenly it will work again. I will be logged out and see the default page due to having deleted all saved dated - but the site will work (for maybe a day) before I have to forget it again.

If this was a once a month type issue it wouldn't be a big deal, but the fact that I have to constantly re-do my local settings because of this is frustrating.

I am running Windows 10 and my Firefox version is 85.0 (64-bit). I have tried disabling any add-ons such as my AdBlocker, however that does not fix the issue.

Hey,

on one of my notebooks (Thinkpad E495) FF occasionally crashes. This started happening a few months ago. Before I've been using FF on the same machine for years without any issues. It's pretty random but usually happens at least once a day, usually shortly after startup or wakeup from hibernate mode. A while ago it used to even crash back to back twice in a row meaning after I reopened it, it immediately closed again and only worked after I selected to restore the previous session after the 2nd reopen. Nothing is registered under about:crashes and I don't see any errors in the system event log.

I already tried to disable hardware acceleration and reinstalled FF completely without any addons besides a different adblocker. I cannot really reproduce the crash in safe-mode but don't really want to browse the web for possibly hours without an adblocker.

Any ideas what this could be or what else I could try? Maybe downgrade to a previous version?
