Mozilla Firefox seems to just take up more and more memory the longer you use it at first it use's realitively little memory but the longer you run it the more memory it takes up even closing tab's doesn't lessen the amount of memory it takes up it eventually reaches the point that clicking any link or switching between any tab takes several min for the computer to do

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run the program continuously for several days or weeks or even months

Expected Results:  
Use less memory 

default theme only google plug in (as far as i know)
This report is basically useless since it's far too general. There are known memory issues in firefox, some of which are leaks, others which are poor memory management.

Make sure your Flash player is up to date (9.0r28 for windows) and make sure your other plugins are up-to-date too. Try in firefox's safemode to see if that changes anything ( ) and give a read.

Firefox 3 will have a spiffy new cycle collector in which will hopefully help matters. But unless you can come up with definite examples of firefox leaking memory (as opposed to having bad memory management) then there's not much point in a bug.
