Most likely and addon as the culprit.

Ghostery had a memory leak. A couple hours in and it would be eating 2GB of memory for 3 tabs.

Disable addons and see if the leak disappears.
It should because Firefox 24 does not have a memory leak for me so it can't be the program itself.

I don't have any extensions but still have that memory leak problem. MrAlex can you chime in in this issue please?

Does this occur in both Firefox and Waterfox?

If so, then try reinstalling Firefox and test without any extensions.
If not, then it could be a problem related to the compiling of Waterfox.

Let the memory leak run for a little while then go to about:memory to see a list of memory usage between objects that call for it. See what the culprit is.

I don't have any extensions installed and the memory leak is not that critical, it's not like 2GB for 3 tabs only. I have a lot of tabs (more than 50) and multiple tab groups but my FF/WF is set to load tabs only when selected. For a give amount of time, it reaches like up to 700MB of RAM usage.

This happens to all my FF/WF installation in multiple computers.

This is important because I use Google Phone, and it won't run under Waterfox. I thought this had something to do with the registry, but Google Phone isn't recognized when I launch the 32-bit dot-exe file. Am I missing something? Can 32-bit Firefox coexist with Waterfox?

Google phone is a 32 bit program and it only works in 32bit browsers. I just run it in IE or Chrome. If you have windows 8 you can download and use a Google phone app like FreeTalk.

Thnx for the reply!!!
The xpi files from https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/24.0/win32/xpi/ works, but the xpi from http://sourceforge.net/projects/waterfoxproj/files/xpi/ does not.
Now looking a litlle bit longer I see that the date of this xpi is a little bit old. So I think it's an xpi from a older version of waterfox and therefore not compatible.

700MB would be acceptable for that many tabs.

A memory leak will keep increasing until eventually you get memory errors.

Monitor the memory usage with the same tabs open. If it stays the same after a short while then it's normal usage.

But it seems that it doesn't release the memory usage when you close tabs?

Does memory usage go down at all ever?

The tab you closed may be using only a small portion of memory. 700MB - 300MB for the application itself = 400MB / 50 tabs = 8MB per tab.

Just monitor the usage in task manager. If it goes down as you close some tabs then it isn't a leak. A leak will never stop until its consuming all of your memory and you run into memory errors (ie. "too many apps are open, close some to free up space!" in Windows).

Ghostery had a bad leak in it. After about a day of leaving it open it was consuming 5-6 GB of memory.

Oh ok. I'll monitor it first and see. Thanks for the insight mate.
