Firefox Memory Problems Fixed? September 20, 2007

Posted by fvter in Programming, Technology.

News on the MozillaBlog would seem to suggest that Firefox may finally fix some of its memory issues:

Many Mozilla community members, including both volunteers and Mozilla Corporation employees, have been helping to reduce Firefox’s memory usage and fix memory leak bugs lately. Hopefully, the result of this effort will be that Firefox 3 uses less memory than Firefox 2 did, especially after it has been used for several hours.

This would be good news. I have been fighting with Firefox memory issues since I adopted it as a browser. For example, right now What’s Running tells me it is using up to 46560K when it starts and hits close to 265000K when it is no longer useable and drives me nuts!

I just hope they do succeed in finally fixing this bug (cause it is a bug)!
