Here I will share some solutions that you can try to overcome this problem. So that opening multiple tabs later you don’t have to worry anymore until it crashes. Please follow some of the ways below starting from the first.

1. Update Firefox Browser Version

Is the Firefox version you are using up to date? If not, it’s good to update it first. Every Firefox update brings several fixes and also improvements to the stability of the device. That’s why updating this version of Firefox is very important.

2. Turn off the Hardware Acceleration Feature

The Hardware Acceleration feature is actually good to activate in order to increase the performance of the browser, but it can crash the browser if the device system does not want to be forced to work more.

To turn off the feature, please open Settings in Firefox, then type Hardware Acceleration in the search field. Later the option will appear and please disable it. After that restart Firefox and see the difference.

3. Use Tab Suspender Addon

Addon named Suspender Tabs has a function to close tabs that have not been used for a certain time. The goal is to increase memory RAM free so that the browser does not crash due to running out of memory from one of the tabs that you always open.

For example, by opening Facebook, it takes tens to hundreds of Mega Bytes of RAM and sometimes it keeps growing. It’s different again if there are several tabs that you open to surf the internet, of course RAM can be used up 1GB only for the browser only.

For that, please use Tab Suspender to free up RAM memory on unused tabs. You can download the addon on the Firefox Addons/Extensions page.
