it was up over 750MB prior to that

I do keep a number of tabs open and leave FF running pretty much 24/7, but the memory usage still seems extreme

Firefox 7 running on Windows XP –– 154,828K with two windows open.

Memory usage dropped dramatically when I installed NoScript.. I have scripts and cookies tightly restricted
on my desktop ( NoScript and MAXA Cookie Manager, along with Kaspersky Anti-Virus, Malwarebytes, and Hijack This ).

Once I kept all the garbage from running in the background, memory usage dropped from multi-Megs to a few hundred K.



Edited to correct pre-caffeine typos.

Just Barfcom open 103mb

That's FF7
Link Posted: 9/29/2011 12:37:50 AM EST
Before I switched to Google Chrome, FF7 regularly went up around 1GB, and caused all sorts of problems on my comp. (ie. freezing, crashing, and even got the blue screen a couple of times). Since I switched to Chrome I am running around 100 Mb, and have not had a single freezing/crashing issue. I will not go back to FF unless they make some drastic changes.

240mb, not too much. But then I really don't tax it like some of you do, I just don't run a bunch of open tabs, etc., and always close/open stuff. I'm gonna switch to it from Safari for a few days and leave tabs and stuff open and never close it, just to see.

1.1GB. Seems about right. I restart mine when it gets into the neighborhood of 1.5GB. It's at 900MB now, so I'm guessing it will be there by this afternoon.

It's been this way for me since v1.5. 6 versions later.... They're testing my patience.

Right after I read this I got an AVG pop up message stating Firefox was using 500mb of memory.

Jesus christ people, 1gb? What the fuck are you doing? I've never had any version of FF go over 500mb and that was with like 15 tabs open, reading different articles/looking at pics and looking at PDF files.

I could have 15 tabs in one window when researching something at work, and I"ll have 5-6 windows open. There are also times when I might not close it down for 3 days in a row, hell sometimes all week depending on the research. Shit adds up.

More or less the same here. 7.01 on Win 7.

ETA: As RightHandTwist, I have NoScript and AdBlock running as well. Prevents lots of extraneous bullshit from running.
ETA2: I just checked, and Chrome 14.0.835.186 m was using over 1.4GB with six tabs open...

but chrome is listed about 6 times, weird?
Link Posted: 9/29/2011 4:34:33 PM EST
For the last time: this is a memory leak. It climbs over time. The longer you have FF open, the higher that usage climbs.
Link Posted: 9/29/2011 4:35:31 PM EST
I wouldn't have the first clue as to how to check said figures.

Arfcom said "Evil: Use Firefox!". Ergo, Evil used Firefox.

I know what I do not know.
