Please note that this seems to occur without extensions as well, and merely gets worse as extensions are added. Will reply after creating profile without extensions. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Start Browser 2.Wait (Add extensions to decrease wait time) 3.Notice browser disappear Actual Results: My browser suddenly disappeared, as though a KILL signal was sent. Expected Results: My browser should have continued running without increasing memory usage severely. AMD Athlon 1000+, Gentoo Linux ebuild, 196mb memory, 500mb swap.
Now, in order to test this bug more thourougly, I am going to run Firefox (no extensions now) overnight, and see what the memory usage is. Starting at 29mb. After this, I will test, if neccesary, a default Mozilla Foundation build.....
It appears that this bug occured as a result of an extension that I was using.... 29 mb of memory still used by firefox-bin.
