firefox + long sessions of youtube = uncontrolled memory leaks. No wonder maleware creators love firefox, all that unallocated memory opens open a whole new world

I blame Flash, not Firefox. Try using YouTube's HTML5 mode and see if it makes a difference.
Also, I have Firefox and Chrome running side by side and Chrome is using more memory, and I have less tabs open.

I've had Firefox open for 3 days now and I've viewed hundreds of Youtube videos and my memory usage is sitting just south of 400mb.

This. It sounds like the flashplayer is going crazy as usual and taking up a lot of RAM.

Pretty sure the TC is referring to the infamous id10t error.
You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

my firefox likes to use a gig of RAM, and chrome does the same, but only with a single tab.
It's irritating, with a single chrome tab open, chrome has spawned 6 processes.
Firefox has spawned one process.

Firefox still hasn't separated its plugins into separate processes? That sucks.

And here I was thinking about switching back to it.

I don't know, I'm on version 19 and no intention to update, I hate the new downloader.

I think starting with Firefox 4 plug-ins have been running in a separate process.
