User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030529 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030529 Under Mo1.2/1.3, I was able to open about 50 tabs on my Win98SE machine with 384Mb of RAM (probably more, actually, I just never tried it). On 1.4, I cannot open 20 tabs. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to, e.g., www.cnn.com 2. Open a story link in a tab. 3. Repeat step 2. 4. Number of simultaneous open tabs is significantly higher in previous versions of Mozilla. Actual Results: Got a "low resource box." Expected Results: Used less RAM. Closing open tabs only helped a little, and only for a little while. Ultimately, I had to shut down and restart Mozilla. DID NOT have to reboot, however. But aside from horrendous memory hogging, there also seems to be a problem with reclamation of memory associated with open tabs.
FWIW, Win9x resources are not the same as RAM. A Win98 machine with 32MB ram has the same amount of resources as one with 2GB RAM. I'm surprised you could get 50 tabs with previous versions under 9x. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 204374 ***
