Firefox slowdown and crashes

I am running Firefox 94.0 in a couple of Linux Mint systems.

My main desktop computer, with a 3.8 GHz 6-core AMD Ryzen 5 processor on an MSI B450-A PRO MAX MB with 16 GB RAM, has had Linux Mint 19.3 installed for over a year. Just today, Firefox, which has also been installed in this OS for a long time, exhibited extreme slowness. I did an online search, and found that the slowness was cured by using the Troubleshoot Mode, but none of the suggestions I found solved the problem in normal mode. So, I went into Settings and turned off hardware acceleration. That solved the problem, somewhat ironically. The hardware acceleration seemed to accomplish deceleration instead. So my browser works, but there is something wrong with hardware acceleration in Firefox.

On a new install of Linux Mint 20.04, I recently experienced frequent crashing of Firefox just after clicking on a link. I tried online solutions, which didn't help, but then I turned off - - guess what - - hardware acceleration, and no more crashes. That is what motivated me to turn off hardware acceleration in Firefox on my Linux Mint 19.3 machine today.

I don't really have a problem to solve, but I don't know of a better place to submit a bug report, so I am hoping you will pass this on to the developers.

A Firefox (all versions since one year) freezes problem. It started freezing, other browsers do not do that. The freezing stops when hardware acceleration is disabled. No hardware changes in the PC, other programs work normally. Changing video drivers does not help.

I would like to keep the hardware acceleration going, otherwise the browser is slower. If the problem can not be fixed i will look for another browser.

Autofill Causes Firefox To Crash

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.

There is an older thread that describes the same symptoms, but seems limited to nVidia GPU's. I have a:

  • Dell Latitude E7470 that has an Intel HD 520 GPU (Dell driver v26.20.100.6888, Feb 24, 2019). Win10 x64, running 32bit FF v77.
  • Dell OptiPlex EX3, with an Nvidia Quadro P2200 GPU (driver v442.92, Apr 16, 2020). Win10 x64 running 64bit FF v77.

Both exhibit this problem, but the EX3 is a more recent development. If I disable hardware acceleration, no crashes. With acceleration, the computer freezes. There is no crash, it just simply locks solid forcing an unclean shutdown. Plugins active or uninstalled, doesn't matter. Nothing in the Event Viewer but an unexpected shutdown. I've just installed the Intel driver ( v27.20.100.8280, May 29, 2020) onto my laptop to see if there is any improvement, but it's a wait and see thing.

Firefox worked fine this morning. I had multiple tabs open, and then opened a tab to install Microsoft Office. Came back after lunch, restarted the computer because my writing software wouldn't open, and then everything but Firefox was fine. Everything in the window, all the tabs, look like smeared unreadable paint. I uninstalled Firefox, restarted the computer, and reinstalled Firefox. Still no good. How do I fix this please? I need to finish my research and paper, and I do not like Edge or Chrome. Please Help!

Thank you, Hillary
