  3. Firefox memory usage going up?
2 years ago#1
Firefox use to top out at using 300-400MB after being open for hours but now after less than an hour it shoots up to 700-900MB and just keeps going up the longer it's open. Anybody know what could be causing this? I haven't installed any new add-ons or anything since this started so I can't imagine why it's doing this. I only have 2GB of RAM so this really sucks =/

It will use as much memory as you have available and release it when other applications need it, it's not a big deal.
