After closing (or killing from tasks), reloading with the same tabs it takes about 30megs, but periodically increasing used memory. Tab closing has no effect. With huge amount of used memory it slowdowns its responses, and became unusable. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.load firebird and taskmanager 2.open some tabs, do some refreshes 3.try to close and reopen abs Actual Results: consumes more and more memory Expected Results: free allocated memory :)

I don't think this bug should be marked as a duplicate. We don't want all memory leaks marked as duplicates of a single bug report, just like we don't want all layout bugs marked as duplicates of a single bug report. I also wouldn't be surprised if there are some Firebird-specific leaks.

I have noticed this problem in both Firebird and Mozilla 1.2-1.4 on Windows 98 and Windows ME. I open and close tabs in the browser and eventually get "Low Resources" messages from Windows. The workaround is to close and reopen the browser. To me, it sounds similar to bug 213534 on Mac OSX.

I have the same problem with this version under Win2000 and XP: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; fr-FR; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Core bug(s) ?
I can reproduce this bug on both Mozilla 2003123008 and the latest Firebird .8 nightly build Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20031230 x86 Windows 2000 Below are the memory usage reports from Windows Task Manager: Mozilla 2003123008: Freshly opened 10864 (1 tab open) Open 3 tabs, open any site in each, refresh. 18954 Close 3 newly opened tabs 18728 Open 3 tabs, open any site, refresh. 22008 Wait a while 11360 Close 3 newly opened tabs 17016 Open 3 tabs, open any site, refresh. 19080 Close 3 newly opened tabs 19176 Firebird 8: Firebird 20031216: 33744 on start (3 tabs) Open 3 tabs, open any site, refresh. 37544 Closed 3 newly opened tabs, 36756 Open 3 tabs, open any site, refresh. 37096 Close 3 newly opened tabs 36380 Open 3 tabs, open any site, refresh. 40660 Close 3 newly opened tabs 38376 etc after a few iterations of this, closed all tabs except for one open site. 52608
Maybe what you observe is the filling of the cache. How big is the memory cache? (Enter about:cache in the location bar) Is Mozilla/Firebird still leaking if the cache is full? How much memory is used (task manager) after you cleared the (memory) cache?
Reporter, do you see this in a recent build? If yes, could you post the URLs to verify. This could be also a dup of bug 213391.
Without actual memory profiling, this bug isn't of any real value. Please reopen if you can point to a specific demonstrable leak.
