This problem is causing my whole PC to stutter and LAG whenever I want to play games

here is a screenshots of the task manager

I tried to close it one by one by "end task" option but still, every time I open Firefox again these tabs or whatever they are are back and using memory more than any browser

Last few days any Firefox 102.0.1.8221 launch causes my Windows 7 64bit to reboot, usually when I try to mouse click anything in Firefox after it's fired up and restored open tabs, however even if I don't mouse click anything Firefox will force a reboot within a minute or so.

This Firefox Win 7 reboot behaviour only started after the last Firefox update, though I would point out that around update version 100.nn I started getting failed update notifications from within Firefox which necessitated a manual newer version Firefox download and install.

Running Windows 7 in safe mode with networking on allows Firefox to function without crashing, albeit slowly and with no MSE protection available etc.

Only one crash report dated 16/07/2022 with following content: Crash ID: bp-d8383165-9c77-45e4-9929-a3ce12160527

Please note I'm sending this report via Firefox on my iMac coz that still works...

Why, with not very many active open windows, and just after opening, is FF using 175% of my CPU, not counting all the separate listings in my Activity Monitor. Plus it's using nearly all 16 GBs of my RAM. With every new update, I pray it will mean the browser will just work, and not use up all my computer's resources, but it just never does. Pretty soon, more & more of us will just give up on this browser, which used to work better, years ago, and has only gone downhill since.

Hello. I've had this problem for over a month now ever since I switched to Firefox from Chrome.

Problem: Every once in a while, Firefox will suddenly be really slow and not load a page. When it finally does load, all text on the website is in the first font alphabetically on my computer. (I tested this by adding/removing fonts on my computer to confirm it was doing this and not just loading a specific font. I have a lot of fonts because I'm a graphic designer, and it's always picking the first font I have when they are all listed in alphabetical order.) This problem can occur on any website.

When the problem occurs: I thought it might be occurring when the computer or Firefox was low on memory, because the problem happens a lot more often when I am working (and thus have lots of programs and tabs open) than just browsing. I started working with both Windows's Task Manager and Firefox's Task Manager open so that when the problem occurs I can check to see what is happening. Memory usage when the problem happens is kind of high, usually around 50-70%, with Firefox being the most or second-most memory-intensive task in Windows Task Manager. But no other programs on my computer are slowing down when Firefox is, and Firefox's Task Manager is not showing any one tab/add-on using more than "Medium" usage. (Although notably, the tab that is having the problem is not showing up in Firefox's Task Manager at all.)

What I have tried:

  • checking and unchecking "use hardware acceleration" settings in Firefox. (It doesn't seem to matter, the problem still happens)
  • changing the default font settings in Firefox
  • closing and reopening Firefox. (This does fix the problem temporarily. After reopening Firefox and restoring the session, all pages load normally. But the problem will happen again later on a different site.)
  • restarting the computer (I shut down every night and turn the computer back on the morning. This problem still happens almost every day and often multiple times a day.)
  • Having fewer tabs open. (That does seem to decrease the chances of the problem happening, but it does not decrease those chances to zero. The problem has occurred with as few as five total tabs open.)
  • Checking add-ons (I'm not using very many add-ons in the first place—uBlockOrigin, Don't Accept webP, I don't care about cookies, and AutoDelete Cookies.) All of them are showing no or low usage in Firefox's Task Manager.

I am running Windows 10, Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-9750H CPU @ 2.60GHz, with 16GB of RAM.

Has anyone else ever experienced this issue? Does anyone know how to fix this? I'm really sick of having to close and reopen Firefox in the middle of work.

Hi Guys,

over the pas month i've been gettign an error where my windows 10 apps slowly stop working, so it will start with the news and interests (clicking on it just does not seem to work, then the search will not work again clicking on it will not work, then eventually the start menu will stop working.

now the reason i'm posting here is for weeks i've trying to pin down the cause and today after rebuilding my windows porfile again on friday its happened again (ps the only way to resolve this issue is to rebuild my windows profile as reinstalling windows apps and store do not work), and i've looked at programs and features and firefox updated itself today.

so my thoughts are its when firefox updates itself that my windows apps start to corrupt, so has anyone else experienced this and do any of you guys have any suggestions on how to stop this happening?

i hope this makes sense

Good Afternoon,

Yesterday I went to use my Arkscan Label printer as I always have for years and it distorts the image very largely as appose to fitting 4 x 6 as it always has. I re downloaded the driver, checked my setting from my label shipping site (etsy) and all is the same. My co-workers is still working, (she does not do automatic updates). After reaching out to technical support from Arkscan it is a widespread problem after your latest update to firefox. I was suggested to use a different browser such as Chrome or Edge. Will you be addressing this issue ASAP or should I use another browser from here on out?

Thank you,

Recently I wanted to install Firefox on this PC (my Dell laptop). Im using Windows 10 64-bit 19044.1415 OS build. I tried to use Firefox as I have been using chrome on my other past devices for years now. I tried to install FireFox multiple times for Windows 64x, but it didn't work; I used Mozilla's desktop download link. is there some particular download I need to get for my device? (all firmware is installed to its latest version)

'The Problem: I use the chrome browser literally for everything, and it is what I'm using to write this question. Anywho all other browsers, including Firefox, fail to load on my device; I've tried reinstalling, I've tried factory resetting my PC, and I've read countless articles on how to fix this, yet none has worked. The issue is when I click on the browser icon or try to run the program, Mozilla doesn't open. Instead, it shows a black screen for a split second, then nothing. And nothing works either. No amount of troubleshooting, firewall deactivating, hardware wiping, installing the latest version of java, and crap will work. It's absurd, and I'm genuinely frustrated. Can someone help me?

Hello,

Have recently lost the ability to print from Firefox. From the File Menu, from "3 lines" in the upper right, from ctrl-p. All result in spinning diagram and "Preparing Preview" and then just never getting further. Cannot think of any change I made in the last few days that would have caused this.

my twitch tab stutters when i change from a different tab to the twitch tab. I don't have it everytime, it's really inconsistent. It appears that my video moves forward some seconds. Suggestions like in the link didn't helped for me.

I tried: - set media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled to false and restart -> didn't solve the issue -set media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled back to true and restart -> didn't solve the issue -set media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled to false set network.http.throttle.version to 1, restart,

 set media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled to true again and restart -> nope

- set network.http.throttle.version to 0 and restart -> nope.

I'm really helpful for any ideas. Thanks in advance!
