Hi, my Firefox (the latest public version 188.8.131.52) is leaking memory. I know that you think you’ve heard this before and that it’s extensions, or old version, but seriously this has to stop:
Fixed! Removing the Firebug extension completely solves the problem. I don’t know why Firebug leaks memory, but trust me, it does.
Yup, it’s using 623MB of memory. Opening a new tab is visibly sluggish. Closing a tab, clicking on links–every action takes seconds to perform on my Core Duo 2 6600 processor with 4 GB of RAM. Extensions? I’m running two: Firebug and an S3 attachment:
The secret Firefox memory cache page (about:cache) returns nothing out of the ordinary:
Number of entries: 1114
Maximum storage size: 28672 KiB
Storage in use: 75316 KiB
Inactive storage: 0 KiB
I have no idea what’s causing this behavior, so I’m going to ask for help. Digg this and let the world know Firefox *still* has memory management issues.
