Windows 10: Firefox uses massive RAM?

    Firefox uses massive RAM?


    So...I've got numerous Edge tabs open. One single tab of Firefox...and I get this RAM usage. What the heck?

    I can't even use Firefox on this machine since it eats up all my RAM. The whole machine slows down. What gives?Click image for larger version.

    Firefox does the same for me. I can leave a single tab open for a while and it will eat more RAM than Chrome with 10+ tabs in constant use.

    Thread belongs in the Browsers and email location.

    First thing to try is to open Fx in Safe Mode; do that, then post the result, we can proceed from there.

    In case you are not aware of Safe Mode:

    Safe Mode - MozillaZine Knowledge Base

    If you are aware, then don't have read the two previous lines of text....

    What version of FF are you running? I run Win 10 Pro, Firefox Quantum 59.02. with one Add ON. Have you tried disabling Add On's -Pug In's? If there's no noticeable difference I would uninstall/reinstall FF

    I have seen that behaviour sometimes when having both Facebook and Youtube opened for a long time.
