I tryed the memory leak fix that is on a bunch of sites but it does nothing. any suggestions?
Mine isn't as bad as that but I don't have anything else running really when I am surfing. Its considered a fact that it rapes your memory anyway.
this is one of the reasons im about to toss firefox. it always gets upto 100-140 for me. once had it at 240
I've had mine almost to 300 before, if you minimize and maximize the window it will flush the memory in use...
Wow, nice hint. Thanks
I'v been thinking of tossing it, but I'm so used to it now I don't think it'd feel righ going back to IE.
right, it CONTSTANTLY crashes, and it also always forgets who I am and doens't remember my bookmarks / settings EVER! Always crashes and clears everything.
Firefox 1.5 has had a ton of improvements, memory usage being one of them. The 1.5b2 that is out right now is extremely stable and the offical release should be coming out any day now.
yea mine's like that too
opera can be just as bad, if not worse at times.
mine was at 150, I did this and it dropped to 36
I hope its soon.. I've had my mem usage at over 330 before (considered it an accomplishment since it usually crashs at ~240).
I run the latest releases of all three (IE, Firefox, and Opera). I've never seen it use up as much memory as FireFox. FireFox is cool (if you want a lego set for a browser), but it has always had issues with memory management.
Mine was at 100 earlier. Lagged my whole machine down.
if it crashes, and then asks you to choose a profile when loading it again, you need to CTRL+ALT+DEL and close the firefox.exe that is running still under the processes. That's a glitch that i've only experienced a couple of times, but that should do it for you.
This is true and if you don't you lose all the settings.
You do know that it will suck up memory if you're viewing threads with gifs or pictures in them right?
agreed. it hardly ever climbs above 30MB and even if it does, it will actually release memory when it should.
That bug no longer happens on the Linux version. If you try to run firefox when the process is still running, it'll just open up a new window. I'm surprised they haven't fixed it on the Windows version.

I haven't had that problem since ~1.0.1...
