Solved: Firefox Quantum v62 memory leak fixed

Post by Saman » Tue Oct 16, 2018 5:01 am

If you are seeing huge memory usage by firefox, here is the solution. If this solution helps, please comment.

Copy/Paste about:preferences#privacy into the Address Bar then Enter.
Go down to the Heading called Permissions and at the bottom of that heading please make sure there is a Check Mark in the box to Prevent Accessibility Services from accessing your browser.

The above has sorted mine. If the problem persists, try below steps.

Then please go up to General --> Performance and untick everything. change the recommended size lower then see how it runs. Note: 1 = No Multiprocessor = slow again. Try 2 can try higher and down again to find the sweet spot.
Restart Firefox after making these changes please.
Note : Hardware Acceleration is for Video Card, Monitor your video screen to see if it should remain off or to turn back on.
