A lot, not a bit smile.gif

Try this, open several articles in www.tweaktown.com and you'll notice this memory leak.

It was bloating up to 3GB just after approx 45 actions and 36 tabs and 2 windows

Okay thanks I'll have a look at that then :)

Mines always used 2.5-3GB after a few hours just with two instances open using multifox and facebook open in effectively 2 tabs or 2 windows. I remember it being a lot better under V34 though. I have 8GB of RAM.

@MrAlex

I'm not sure if I told you this problem already but when I re-open my WF browser (it is set to save all tabs upon exit), the last selected tab turns into a "new tab" without any information on it so I lose that tab. Simply put, when I exit WF while a specific tab is selected that tab will become a "new tab" when re-opening WF. How do I troubleshoot this?

Yes there's a useful guide here, although might be a bit out-dated.

I ran through the tips (and thank you for them! did answer other questions I had about FF/WF) and adjusted things to be smaller, but this isn't touching the issue. Here are the cache info screen the above link referenced and the Task Manager screen, capped a minute apart so it will be referring to the same session/quantity of data:



I saw someone a page or two ago question whether Flash is the culprit, which to me would make sense because I have done most of my browsing to get to this point on Tumblr, which is fairly heavy with things that autoplay and the fan on my GPU kicks in accordingly (Vine loops, uploaded videos, and convoluted themes invoke this). Would the Flash plugin -- and isn't that one of the rare 64-bit plugins? -- hang onto data like this? The only add-ons I have installed are Flash Video Downloader 7.1.2 and Xkit 7.4.5. I'm just making guesses how the browser can report one thing about itself but the system another.

And to concur with bIOforger, I don't recall seeing bloaty behavior like this in v34.

friend ask
try --disable-verify-mar he say
Code:
# Check whether --enable-verify-mar or --disable-verify-mar was given.
if test "${enable_verify_mar+set}" = set; then
  enableval="$enable_verify_mar"
  if test "$enableval" = "yes"; then
    MOZ_VERIFY_MAR_SIGNATURE=1
  elif test "$enableval" = "no"; then
    MOZ_VERIFY_MAR_SIGNATURE= 
  else
    { echo "configure: error: Option, verify-mar, does not take an argument ($enableval)." 1>&2; echo "configure: error: Option, verify-mar, does not take an argument ($enableval)." 1>&5; exit 1; }
  fi
fi

memory leaks very bad still hope soon fix security important thumb.gif

A little tip to people that have RAM probs with FF/WF.

Open about:config
search for " config.trim_on_minimize " without the hyphens.
If it doesn't exist, create it ( new, bolean ) and name it " config.trim_on_minimize " without the hyphens.
Then set it to true, if not possible just ok it and when created double click it to set it to true.

This will make FF/WF flush it's memory consumption when minimized to tray.

When you say "without the hyphens", do you mean the preference should be name "config.trimonminimize"?

Mine ("trim_on_minimize") has been set to True all along and I have the consumption issues.
