Since FF 69 the starting (not the loading!) of websites frequently lasts more than 10 seconds under Xubuntu. The tab remains empty during this waiting time, while no sign of the loading process can be seen: The tab header shows no title, only the URL. The animated loading icon of the tab header is not shown. The status bar shows no activity. For about 5 to 20 seconds it looks like the tab is frozen. (See hardcopy.) This phenomenon occurs irregularly, but repeatedly, approximately with 10-20 percent of all calls, regardless of the requested URLs. It typically occurs piled within a random period, that lasts between a some seconds and several minutes. It also happens in safe mode, regardless of the used profile (even an unmodified new profile) and both in private an non-private windows. As far as I can judge, the troubleshooting Information shows no abnormalities. There are no issues with the internet connection. I've been using Firefox trouble-free for more than 10 years, but this phenomenon only occurred since Firefox 69.0.

After my browser being open for a while, usually a few hours, Firefox starts to get some major hanging in some tabs; I can have two windows open, one with a youtube video playing and another with like reddit or something else, and when browsing reddit, I get major hanging when interacting for around 7 seconds.

I recorded a couple performance profiles to see what's causing it, and it seems to consistently be a very long JIT or GC call, also labelled as "Cycle Collection" in the waterfall view.

I saved the profiles and I can upload them, but I'm not sure if they come with any private info so I'm reticent to add it to this thread.

I've watched the Task Manager (the Firefox one and the Windows one) while this is happening and memory usage in the Windows task manager seems to rise quickly over a few seconds then suddenly drop back down. I'm not sure if that's relevant. In the Firefox Task Manager I didn't see anything particularly salient other than energy usage spiking up just after the hanging is over.

This doesn't only seem to happen on Windows because it also happens on my Linux laptop occasionally as well, in a very similar manner. I didn't collect any evidence on Linux yet.

This has been happening for quite a while now, on multiple versions of Firefox in a row. I'm using 79.0b3 Developer Edition right now on my Windows machine.

Closing and reopening Firefox usually causes things to clear themselves out and I don't get such long hanging for a while.

I would expect JIT and GC to happen in much smaller chunks to avoid hanging, it's strange that it takes that long for one call.

relatively recently (within the last month), Firefox has become prone to hanging. It seems to happen with randomly, and can be trigger by just about anything, e.g. scrolling a window, clicking on anywhere in the window. It appears that even with content process limit = 1, it still runs with a minimum of 5 process threads. Don't know how these are ordered, but the 'last' of these, as displayed in Task Manager (yes Windows 10 2004), seems to be the one with a wait chain.

This is quite frustrating, but although I am willing to help collect relevant diagnostics, I do not know sufficient to know which and how.

All helpful suggestions welcome. The laptop is not CPU, Memory, nor disk bound when these waits occur.

Hi,

I have an Intel NUC 10 i7 (integrated Intel UHD gpu using latest drivers 1.100.2731.0) and whenever I open tabs with videos the CPU consuption goes sky high and overheats the system.

Checking this page: http://jdashg.github.io/misc/webgl/low-power.html

In Firefox I get: {"powerPreference":"low-power"}

 => ANGLE (Microsoft Basic Render Driver Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0)

{}

 => ANGLE (Microsoft Basic Render Driver Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0)

{"powerPreference":"high-performance"}

 => ANGLE (Microsoft Basic Render Driver Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0)

In Chrome/Edge: {"powerPreference":"low-power"}

 => ANGLE (Intel(R) UHD Graphics Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0)

{}

 => ANGLE (Intel(R) UHD Graphics Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0)

{"powerPreference":"high-performance"}

 => ANGLE (Intel(R) UHD Graphics Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0)

Which is aligned with the lack of GPU usage in Resource manager in Firefox.

How can I fix this? I am sure I accessed the same pages in the past without problems in FF. Some update has messed this.

Tks

When I have Firefox running, Windows is freezing occasionally. Sometimes it is freezing every few minutes; sometimes a couple of times per hour. I find errors in the Windows event log from the ESENT service which correlate to the freezing events (see attached image).

The freezing events seem to occur more often if I have more Firefox tabs open.

I have tried running Firefox with add-ons disabled and have uninstalled and then reinstalled Firefox and the in both cases the freezing events still occur.

The freezing events do not occur if I use MSIE or Chrome, but I would prefer to use Firefox.

I have checked Device Manager for errors - there are none. The S.M.A.R.T. utility reports all OK for my C drive.

I am looking for advice on how to resolve this problem.

Thank you!

This is my rig: www.bit.do/kanishkpc and I use the latest Firefox Beta (always updated)

I have been using Firefox without the kind of memory usage that I am seeing recently. With ~10/15 tabs open, my PC would never be troubled. The RAM usage wouldn't be at 90% but in the past few days (possibly because of a beta update?) I get 50% RAM usage (8GB) with 15 tabs. Yesterday concurrently loaded ~6 YouTube tabs caused a 90% usage from the app and I had to close it.

The RAM usage might seem normal but Firefox actually never uses that much RAM - or didn't earlier at least.

I used MalwareBytes a few days ago to do a malware scan and it found my PC clean. If I did have malware (I had a bit of scare earlier), how would I detect it?

Hello,

I recently had to switch back to my laptop and noticed that firefox is micro-stuttering (missing a couple of frame at worse) at a somewhat regular interval. Which is very noticable and head-ache inducing when watching a youtube video.

I tried to disable every plugins that I have, switching to a new profile, setting browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo and browser.sessionstore.max_windows_undo to 0, closing everything in the background, clearing cookies caches and etc.

Nothing worked, I noticed that disabling window's "Hardware-Accelerated GPU Scheduling" helped. With it on I've got a very regular micro stutter (every 10 seconds) whereas with it turned off I "only" get a microstutter once every 20/30 ish seconds. Therefore I suspect some shenanigans with optimus drivers but I don't know for sure how to confirm. I tried to force firefox to use the integrated gpu with nvidia pannel but it didn't help.

I would have capture a video to show off the problem but everytime I start recording (with lenovo's nerve sense capture software) the problem totally disappears !

Anyone have any ideas about what could be happening / how to diagnose more precisely the problem ? Thanks for reading.

specs :Windows 10 (x64), Firefox 78.0.1 (x64), Intel Core i5-7300HQ, optimus GPUS : Intel HD Graphics 630 + NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Max-Q)

From time to time, when using firefox I find that firefox-bin process uses very high cpu process (on top command output it shows even more that 100% (i don't understand those specs)) It doesen't seem related to any specific website. I close tabs one by one and it remains the same. Even when closing firefox window, firefox-bin remains using 100% cpu for about 1 minute or so. Then a crash message appears, and I click send report.

Anyone else notice excessive cpu usage with Firefox 77.0.1? It's been going on for the past week. 17.6-27% cpu usage just sitting here on the support page only after a fresh restart of the computer.

I also just noticed tonight not a single page would load. Switched to trouble shooting which disables the addons and pages loaded. Closed the browser and opened it again to be in normal mode and started disabling addons. The one I disabled to get pages to load again was Adblock Plus. Go figure of all the addons this is the one that is going to kill the browser from loading anything. I've already sent a report for this on the addon itself not sure what else to do there other then enjoy a bunch of adds for a while.

The one that concerns me more is Firefox just sucking away at the power for no reason at all. I can fill the top bar with tabs normally and not be using this much cpu. I would say it has developed a memory leak of sorts or something considering it's using 0 disk and network activity yet currently is using 18.4% cpu and 635MB memory for this single page being open.

Firefox freezes at least 5 times a day, and I have to do a Force Quit. But I can't restart my Mac because there is still a version of Firefox running, so I have to press the power button for 5 seconds to shut down. Upon opening, I'm fine for an hour or two, and then the same problem. After force quit, it appears Firefox is no longer running, but trying to reopen it, a message says only one version can run at a time.
