Approximately I have 50+ tabs, does that explain it?

Yes. having too many tabs open can cause a high memory usage. Even on other browsers. As for me i only have 4 tabs open. Memory is only at 400+ Mb memory usage. Not really bothersome cause my ram can accommodate it.

Yeah I understand that but what I don't get is why does RAM and CPU usage increase over time as long as WF/FF is opened even it sitting at idle.

Waterfox 14 most likely. See, I don't have a bunch of test computers or users either. Releasing preview builds here, while does help, still doesn't match the scope of the thousands of people that use Waterfox. So there's no way I can account for all the issues that crop up. But the next build will be rock solid thumb.gif

Maybe of your tabs are having some activity. (like 1 or 5 tabs are playing a flash content.) Many factors really. It's how heavy the website is. But outdated extensions or too many extensions can affect the memory usage of WF/FF. if you want it to trim down memory when idle or when minimized there's a tweak on about:config that will shed some memory when it's minimized. (forgot the tweak code sorry biggrin.gif )

No activity in each of the tabs, really. Just plain forum texts.

Also, I only have one extension (IDM) and it is updated. I only have Silverlight, Flash, Shockwave, and Microsoft Office as plugins also.

Oh and by the way, I followed all the tweaks of djkilla here: http://www.overclock.net/t/975626/waterfox-v13-pl1-6-jun-firefox-64-bit/2050#post_16944929 . Maybe one of his tweaks causes my issue? Not sure on that.

Curious if there is a work-around or plug-in for Google Voice and Video that works with this browser?

Not a deal breaker, but would be convenient.

I absolutely love this browser and am willing to go without, but never hurts to ask!

Thanks!

I've never used them before. Are they 32-Bit plugins? If so, there's nothing you can do but wait for Google. But take note this issue has come up at Google and is being looked into.

Like qwerty77 said, there are lots of factors. He did mention a tweak that you can do to help memory and I'm going to give it to you. Hopefully it will help but there are so many factors involved that it's hard to pinpoint exactly what could be causing this issue for you. MrAlex has mentioned that with thousands of users, some will have issues and some won't. Every setup is different and it's almost impossible to reply and chase down every little thing especially when not everyone has the same issue due to each persons setup. Anyway, try this:

This little hack will drop Firefox’s RAM usage down to 10 Mb when minimized:

1. Open Firefox and go to the Address Bar. Type in about:config and then press Enter.
2. Right Click in the page and select New -> Boolean.
3. In the box that pops up enter “config.trim_on_minimize”. Press Enter.
4. Now select 'True' and then press Enter.
5. Restart Firefox.

Cool, looks like they have x64 plugins for fedora and debian:

I'll keep snooping around =]

Google is aware, looks like they are dragging their feet:
