Firefox either slows down or crashes when its memory footprint gets above 1GB. This is on a 64bit Windows 7 machine with quad core AMD and 8GB of RAM.

@ cor-el

All the answer seem to dodge tackling the problem.

The solution is to not leave the program running so long, close it down and restore the tabs when you use it again.

Thats a great solution Mozilla!
