Description

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:9.0a1) Gecko/20110901 Firefox/9.0a1
Build ID: 20110901030807

Steps to reproduce:

Use Firefox 5 x86 on Windows 7 x64.


Actual results:

up to 2 gigs of RAM while only 5 tabs open, social networks, no other plugins


Expected results:

...
Firefox 5 is not supported. Firefox 7 will contain many JavaScript improvements. One of which was found to be particularly helpful when sites had a lot of FB like, comment on Twitter, Google+ and whatnot buttons.

For memory reports to be useful we need the relevant section of about:memory from a nightly build or the entire about:memory attached to a bug.

This is not enough info for a bug report.
