Who the f*** keeps their browser on for weeks or even days? That's just silly.

That was so hard.


Pretty common for some people, especially Mac users like myself, to never quit apps. There's no real reason to.

Most likely an addon causing the leak. Addons in general will start to use a ton of memory if you have a lot of them. My Fx use to always jump above 1GB after a day or two of leaving it open, and have something like 450MB on a fresh start.

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


How and why is that?


Because by definition a memory leak is what happens when an object is stored in ram but can't be accessed by whatever put it there. What Firefox is doing is probably caching things and should be taken as a giant hint from the computer god to close the damn thing every once in a while. Tabs were never meant to be used as a half assed replacement for bookmarks
Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively.

So it's not really a memory leak problem, it's you not wanting to close the program while having multiple tabs and add-ons for it opened for weeks on end. Okay, I think I got that right.

Firefox will restore your tabs if it crashes. End the process from the Task Manager, re-open, old tabs will be restored, mem usage will be back to normal, ????, profit!

I know this but do not want to do it as of yet until I get something settled.

What's the point in turning it off? So I can wake up in the morning and spend extra time getting my workspace set up again?
Now, if we'd just use postfix syntax like sensible people, this wouldn't even be an issue. -scudobuio
