When I try to open chatzilla with more than 10 tabs in firefox open it crashes. I have two channels on one server set to open at when chatzilla starts but it doesn't even get that far, the *client* tab opens as a grey blank space and the cpu usage goes to 100% and stays there. Then the "send error report" window comes up and firefox crashes. The problem might be that I have only 512MB ram, when I closed all the tabs but this one it stopped crashing.

This is more of a problem with firefox being a general memory hog than chatzilla screwing up but if you can convince someone that firefox should use less memory that'd be great.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open many tabs/windows
2.Try to open chatzilla
3.Wait a while open more tabs and repeat.

Actual Results:  
Chatzilla freezes up and Firefox crashes.

Expected Results:  
Opened the server and then the two channel tabs.

I have 5 scripts (chattytunes, geoip, gspel, 8ball and dice) and am using a custom motif and the two channels in the one server opening when chatzilla starts.

Hate to tell you, but this really can't be anything to do with us. Until we can blame someone properly, please put Talkback IDs in here, too - a crash is useless without a TB ID.
