Why would someone have Firefox open for days and weeks?


I do. As to why? I like having my previous tabs already their for me.


There is an option to have Firefox restore previous tabs on startup.

Firefox is using 12.4gb and I laughed at you people when you criticized me for having 16gb!

Does the memory come back when you close the app? If so, it's not an actual memory leak.


How and why is that?


It could be that Firefox has just reserved that much RAM in case it needs it. There's no harm in that because it will release it if another application needs it.

Not all add ons are programmed perfectly as well.

while(1) { malloc(1); } will still let the memory be recovered when you kill the program, but it is definitely a memory leak.

Now, if we'd just use postfix syntax like sensible people, this wouldn't even be an issue. -scudobuio

Who the f*** keeps their browser on for weeks or even days? That's just silly.
Tools > Options > General > When firefox starts, open tabs from previous session.
That was so hard.

What's the point in closing it?
