In an hour the volume of used memory exceeds 90 Mb. It occurs under any conditions. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
How about providing any url where this happens?
I have written, that it occurs irrespective of pages which are opened.
Does this also happends in safe mode? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode
Yes. It happened in safe mode. More Memory used when I go to Gmail, Google Reader.
WFM. I think I saw something a bit like this earlier in Bug 311645. Have you tried using a new profile?
I uninstall Firefox, delete all files, delete all entries in registry and install again. I have this problem.
It's also WFM for me. Branch build 20051007, win xp Did you start Firefox with firefox.exe -p to create a new profile?
No. But for why if I have this problem after new installation?
(In reply to comment #8) > No. > But for why if I have this problem after new installation? You didn't h ave this problem before?
Again. I have Firefox 1.0.6. Uninstall it. Remove all files. Remove all entries from registry. Install Firefox 1.5 Beta 1. And see this problem. After installing Beta 2 I have this problem too.
Try comment 7 please
When I start Firefox with "-p", How I can returh old profile after creating new?
1. start firefox.exe -p 2. create new profile, name it, start firefox 3. test again, does it work better? 4. to go back to the old profile, start fireofx again with -p and select your old profile
I have this problem after creating new profile too. After start I have 18 Mb memory. After 10 minutes I have 32 940 Kb. I visited to Gmail, LiveJournal, mozilla.org. I don't make any changes in options after creating new profile.
I am also in that memory range when surfing around after a while. Same with IE 6.
I use it only 10 minutes. I want my options and extensions for work and can't test more then this time. When I go to sleep I leave opened Firefox (new profile). Firefox Developers speak: Firefox use less memory than IE
(In reply to comment #16) > Firefox Developers speak: Firefox use less memory than IE I hope this is not a statement you got from this bug report, since I am no Firefox Developer
Ok. I use new profile and memory using is normal. What is this? And how I can fix it for my real profile? TY.
>>I use new profile and memory using is normal. Sounds like it could possibly be an extention or theme causing your problem with memory then.
As I say, I use only Greasemonkey 0.6.2 and last version of Flashgot. I haven't any themes.
(In reply to comment #20) > As I say, I use only Greasemonkey 0.6.2 and last version of Flashgot. I haven't > any themes. So it could be one of these extensions causing the memory leak. You could (if you want) install each one of them in your new profile, one at the time, to see which one is causing the leak
My friends who have these exts don't have this problem. I have "Remember last visited pages in _999_ days". It can be problem?
(In reply to comment #22) > I have "Remember last visited pages in _999_ days". It can be problem? Could be yes,set it 9 days and clear the browsing history, does it help?
I change to 7 days. In some case it fixed problem. For now I have ~59 Mb memory used by Firefox. It's normal or not?
Depens on what sites you use, but i usually land on 40-50 something
For now I have 85 Mb memory used. I visited to: mail.google.com livejournal.com dirty.ru uk.wikipedia.org bugzila.mozilla.org
Greasemonkey (or at least some Greasemonkey scripts) caused quite a bit of leaking due to bug 241518. email@example.com, is Firefox's memory usage significantly better for you if you use a trunk build (which includes a fix for bug 241518) instead of Firefox 1.5?
I don't know. I don't like to use trunk builds :) Sorry.
