Firefox Hungry For Memory


Recommended Posts

You might not like hearing this, but IE8 may be your best bet for memory usage. Safari, Opera, and Firefox eat memory like no tomorrow.

If you run a modern computer with a firewall and antivirus, and browse the internet normally, IE8 is perfectly fine.

Well, I have 30 extensions installed ... cache of 100MB memory ... what I forgot to mention is that the screenshot was taken with only one tab open, but before I had several tabs open, then after I closed all and left only one open ... my intention was to say that even after closing the other tabs Firefox does not return to the system the memory used... even the old "trick" "minimize and then maximize" does not work to free the memory used...

Are you free of malware?

Yes... Kaspersky, Spyware Terminator, and Comodo all of them updated...

I think it's a Firefox problem... I remember that Opera reached the maximum of 80Mb with the same procedure described.

Protip: Kapersky + Spyware Terminator + Comodo =/= Free of Malware

Superantispyware + Malwarebytes + A post in the Am I Infected? Forums at www.bleepingcomputer.com = Free of Malware

Firefox 3.5... running an hour and a half... only one tab open ... the picture says it all, even says that perhaps I should try Opera or anything else than IE...

get safari.

How many add-ons do you have for your Firefox? They can use a lot of memory. Only keep the ones you really need, such as AdBlock Plus. Pointless ones that aren't helping you any are worth deleting (toolbars you never use, etc.).
