Wondering if 65.0.1 has a memory leak? Had no issues with previous version. Memory seems to creep up and max out eventually.

Had no issues with previous version that I'm aware of. After reboot & update recently seems I have a problem.

My usage habit is basically I've usually got hundreds of tabs up on a few different windows up to sometimes 10. Memory seems to creep up with browsing and doesn't really seem to go down even if I close a large number of tabs or whole windows now. A while back there was another version that would leak but it got fixed (within the quantum releases not the really old memory leak that was super bad.) Just wondering if maybe this version has a leak as well.

Side note: I DO love the crash recovery, because it works better than anything else. If I try to close all windows and then relaunch and restore session it never seems to recover everything. But if I crash it via task manager on purpose it has near 100% ability to restore. I'd rather not have to do it that way but it's what works. I'm a very heavy user and outside the norm a bit.

No issues with the previous version? I wish I had that kind of performance. I've always had 'Memory Creep' from IE and through FF versions of past and current. (I just DL'd FF 65.0.2, so it'll be running next time I restart this session.)

However, I do have 21 windows and over 1,200 Total Tabs at the moment, so maybe FF is fine after all. I just got reduce my many Tabs and browser windows. (Sigh)
