Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 594

post #5931 of 7360
Why does WaterFox use and NOT RELEASE over 1gb of memory?
Sorry to change the subject (I happen to like Australis. Used with Tab Mix Plus)
When I first load WaterFox v30.0 (also happened with earlier versions of WF)
it claims about 800 to 900 MB of memory with 4 tabs open (three news sites and FaceBook). Over time, less than one hour, this has climbed to over 1.4 GB and sometimes increases to over 1.6 GB. Closing tabs has no affect on reducing the memory use and as WaterFox claims more memory it slows to a crawl, to the point of becoming unresponsive at times. See attached screen shot. Is there a way to get WaterFox to release it's unused memory? Thanks in advance.

What security product are you using ?
Can you also see how much lsass.exe is using at the same time ?

Is anyone else experiencing this or can confirm ?

What happens when you end the process waterfox.exe in task manager ? Does it make a difference ?

Pale Moon has a similar memory creep problem; I have to close and restart it once it pushes the 1 GB RAM limit since it starts to get kinda sluggish. There is probably a leak in the base Mozilla code.

Win 8.1 w/ Windows Defender
lsass.exe is using 7616 K with 0 CPU cycles
All memory used by waterfox.exe is released when the process is terminated
post #5936 of 7360
Any extensions being used ?

Its definitely not access tokens using the memory judging by your lsass. Utilized when visiting secure sites and sites that require logging in.

Its either a plugin, extention, addon etc, or purely waterfox code. Using version 30 yet ?

I am using a number of add-ons (see screen shots) but none seem to abuse their allotted memoy. Yes WF v30

Still, that's definitely a lot of add-ons. Have you tried disabling one at a time to see if memory usage as reported by task manager suddenly rises or falls?

Thread Starter 

This is quite a conundrum as Waterfox is meant to be a 64-bit performance version of Firefox. Basically, the Firefox that everyone is (not) used to and presenting in a light that makes it as fast as possible.

 

^^ That was meant to be posted almost two weeks ago but got saved as a draft instead! OOPS!

 

Also, if anyone is interested a 64-Bit build with partial support for 32-Bit plugins!! It can find and list 32-Bit plugins in the Add-On manager but when it goes to used them, it crashes. But it's good progress :D

Is there a stable release build of Waterfox with a proper installer yet?
