Waterfox 56.0.1: 13 December [Free, open and private web browser.] - Page 350

@MrAlex: Right, and I was wondering if there was anything one could do to help out. I wasn't trying to discourage or yell 'HURRY UP MANG', just seeing if there was help I could provide of some sort.

I know, I didn't mean to sound as if I was attacking tongue.gif at the moment there isn't anything, but if there is anything users can do I post it here anyway. thumb.gif

Firefox is 32bit, thus memory usage does not exceed 4GB of RAM ever, even with memory leaks caused by addons. This is why you are having issues with Waterfox and not Firefox. Because Water-fox is 64-bit, it can exceed the 4GB barrier that 32it programs have. Firefox 15 is officially out of beta and includes the awesome work of the MemShrink project. My browser instance is using less than 500MB of memory with 100+ tabs open. You can read more about how they eliminated a long-standing problem with problematic add-ons, 'zombie compartments' and more on their blog:

or the excellent Ars Technica article below.

I'll try reinstalling later today, I thought I'll just post it here because I find this pretty weird.


I ran into what I also believed was a memory leak when I went to WF v14. I was able to recreate the problem (quickly) if I went to Facebook and just left it sitting. WF would quickly begin to slow down. Didn't see it with any of my other web browsers. When I reverted it back to WF v13 I did not see the same problem. This lead me to believe that it had something to do with WF 14.

The other day FF v15 was released and one of the things it fixes was a memory leak issue in v14. I've moved off WF v13 (for now....) and started to use FF v15 and so far I've not run into any problems.

I'm hoping that WF v15 will resolve the problem I ran into with v14 rolleyes.gif

Well, you could get a Waterfox beta testing team to test pre-releases? tongue.gif

Sorry Mr Alex, but it seems to have more to do with the "Waterfox" execution file as opposed to previous versions using the traditional Firefox.exe to run. Still gives grief when Windows is trying to open something to default browser if Waterfox is not already running
