This is a companion bug to bug 640452 and bug 640457. It's about improvements to memory measurements and benchmarking, ie. anything that helps us understand how to reduce memory consumption without actually reducing it. Eg. bugs relating to about:memory, areweslimyet.com, specific measurements that indicate areas of improvement, etc.
*** Bug 631578 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Now that we have even shorter release cycles than the originally planned 3 month ones, I've changed this to be about Firefox 5 and on. If this bug gets too unwieldy I'll close it out and start a new one.
I'm renaming this from "mprof-fx5+" to "mtools-fx5+", to broaden its scope to cover any kinds of tools related to the measuring, tracking and/or reduction of memory usage.
Renaming again to "MemShrinkTools", to reflect the fact that this tracking is for the MemShrink project.
Does anyone care if we close this bug? I certainly wouldn't.
