I had surfed many and multiple sites that spawned windows as well as the tabbed windows I created. I close all but the primary/first one I had open. I happened to have a program that appeared to not be responding so I went into task manager. At that point I had upwards of 83,000 Kb allocated to mozilla.exe. I went into mozilla and I had one tabbed page open where the content of the entire page was no more than 200Kb. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.go to any URL 2.create a new tab for each link (ctrl+click) or roller on Intellimouse 3.open more and more tabs then close them.... Actual Results: memory is not totally released In my latest test I had 34 Mb allocated prior to open and closing 40-50 tabs and 5 or 6 windows. When I finished closing back down to the one window and two tabs I started with my memory allocation was up to 58 Mb . Expected Results: if i return to where i started as far as page open and same number of windows and tabs.... then I would expect a similiar memory allocation as to where I started.

Stephen, one thing to try, is that AFTER you close all the windows & tabs, and you are back to the start, is to go in and clear your cache... Theoretically that will take you back to 34Mb Edit->Preferences->Advanced->Cache : Clear Cache
