View Full Version : Firefox memory clogging

FF 3.0.12 / latest Ubuntu 9.04 with all updates

My workflow consists of modifying code, hitting Ctrl+F5 or F5, checking if it works, repeating previous steps. Not at all unusual) The strange thing is that after a day of work my FF runs on about 1.3G of RAM. I've heard about memory leaks in JS apps, but all memory "related" to page should be freed right after refreshing it.

Do you know what's the cause?

Is that with or without firebug installed / enabled?

I have firebug installed and I find I end up having to restart firefox.

Yes, firebug is enabled. Ok, so this is a known issue, thanks)
