Leaving Firefox on for more than 12/24 hours, and you will see your CPU utilization rise dramatically, upwards of 75% and higher. As you know, this is very, very serious. I'm concerned that once this becomes known, this could be a major drag on Firefox's new found success. Question: Why isn't this bug not prominently featured on the Mozilla main page? You go there and its all nice and cheery as if there were no issues at all. This is extremely serious, and I hope you are able to fix this forthwith. Thank you.
There's many potential causes for this, not some single bug that's causing it. We're continually working on memory leak issues, finding unoptimized code and fixing it, and resolving crashers. In certain heavy use situations, you will find the memory usage getting high, but its an incremental process in trying to bring that down. Marking this bug INVALID, not because its not true in certain cases, but because its a generic observation rather than a specific bug to be fixed.
