Why is Firefox on Windows so bad?

I have 100 tabs open and FF freezes and stutters whenever I try to do something. When I have firefox open in Linux it runs perfectly, even if I have 100+ tabs open

windows support is an afterthought

just look how long it too for them to bother making a 64bit windows build

Cameron Evans

Idk what your talking about. I have literally 393 tabs open with <1.5gb ram. Reminder your shitty bloatfest extensions.

Parker Flores

what's the point ? Can't you simply use the thread watcher ?

pre or post e10s?

Seriously, I have 2 instances open over two screens on two different desktops. I also have sessions that aren't open saved elsewhere in case I need to open like 50 tabs at once.

Also it's probly your shitty extensions, I heard they keep a copy of their entire blocklist in every page on chrome. Probly true on the electrolysisfox now too.

Works fine for me. Althpug currently I only have around 40-50 tabs in two windows.

wtf is a protected tab?

Can't close them unless you remove protection. Pretty useful.

Casual 100+ tab whore here. I just open any potentially interesting links and then forget about them.
Then i save them all in a bookmark folder. Right now my exported .html bookmark file is about 50mb

Brandon Turner

i have very few bookmarks (thing that were difficult to find AND don't make sense to download, a rare combination)
but i have no /less/ than 100 tabs open at a time

What is a nice addon to manage gargantuan amounts of tabs?

Guys, I also use Firefox on Win7. I have about 20 tabs open but it is very slow. A quick look into the task manager reveals that Firefox doesn't use my RAM. I have 32GBs of RAM but Firefox is constantly below 1GB. How do I make Firefox use more RAM for the sake of speed?
inb4 use muh chrome
fuck off, I need customizability

Aiden Edwards

Do you have it installed on an SSD? P sure there are ways to make it use RAM for cache. Also what's the your extensions situation?

Hudson Morris
Hudson Morris

Yes, it's installed on my SSD. I doubt highly that my SSD is the bottleneck here as Chromium used to be way faster on my old PC (which had much worse hardware). As to your question: about 7-8 extentions are constantly running but they only really affect the fetching and rendering phase.
I think the issue is that Firefox doesn't keep open tabs in the RAM but fetches them again from the internet once the tab hasn't been active for a certain amount of time. That's also why websites are sometimes "refreshed" (which is REALLY annoying) when I switch to their tab after a long time.
Hell, Firefox may even use 10GB of RAM and I wouldn't mind if I can stop it from refreshing inactive tabs when I've not been using them for some time. Is there a way?

Fucking hoarders. I can't imagine how your rooms and house look like.

I use onetab to store excessive tabs

how can you even find your way around all those tabs without having some kinda search?

Eli Watson

i have 3 windows with 100-400 tabs each, I gotta restart it once it reaches around 2,5gb ram usage because it becomes unresponsive

implying that's a problem with firefox only

It's the same with Chrome. On Windows it's a bloat-fill-all-the-memory-drain-all-the battery-this-tab-has-crashed freak show

On GNU/Linux Chromium is fast, smooth, stable, with sane memory consumption and not putting a strain on the battery.
Plus (unlike Chrome) it's free of botnet.

Windows is shit for everything, including games (they are filled with DRM nowadays)

Xavier Cooper

Try the 64bit version?

Ryder Murphy
Ryder Murphy

I am talking about the 64-bit version because that's the one I'm running. It still doesn't allocate memory. Right now I have 3 windows with 8 tabs each and I'm sitting on 745MB RAM consumption, wtf? No surprise it's this slow...

I'm on the 32bit version, one window open with 63 tabs, half of them YouTube ones. Active add-ons: 9.
Task manager says FF occupies 1.5GB of ram. So, your number seems pretty normal

it's like you're asking for it you autist

Make sure you are _not_ using electrolysis. Split up your tabs among a few different profiles. There's also a setting to not load a tab until you navigate to it.
