Are you tired of Firefox crashing? I am. It crashes weekly for me. It makes me crazy. I’m “hard” on my browser. I keep a couple windows open with about 15-20 tabs per window. On startup, in this configuration, I’m using about 135 MB or RAM. Within a couple of days I’ll be sitting at about 350 MB of RAM! Damn! Can you say memory HOG?
Anyhow, I came across a post yesterday about keeping Firefox’s memory use in check (Prevent Firefox from Bleeding Memory). Not sure if it was legit I checked the Firefox about:config FAQ and sure enough if you search down for ” browser. cache. memory. enable” you will see that setting this to false should halt my memory growth problem.
I’m gonna run like this for a few days and see what happens. If I don’t see the memory growth, and I don’t see any “slowness” I’ll be thrilled. Give me a week and I’ll report back.
