Are you using extensions? Does the memory usage keep growing after disabling all the extensions and restarting your session?

Thank you for your reply! I tried to close all the extensions and things are get better! I will try to close extensions one by one to find where the question is!

I found when I closed the “GSConnect” ,the video or the live on the Internet would play normally. And when I opened the “GSConnect”, the video would become not smooth immediately! In addition, The problem will be more obvious after ten minutes of booting. I think I should use kdeconnect instead.
