I'm using thousands of tabs, of course with the option "don't load tabs until selected" activated so FF is supposed not to have to load really more content in memory compared if I was just opening one tab.
But my Firefox is using more than 2GB of memory just to boot up i.e. loading the list of the tabs with their little icon, a tab and the extensions.
I tried to boot FF in "without modules" mode it doesn't even manage to boot.
That was quite annoying but OK but now my ff is randomly CRASHING (I am probably around 3000 now) !
The memory problem is here for a lot of time but the crash is new but I believe it's more the tab number than the new version responsible for it.
I cleared cache and cookies, it doesn't solve anything.
How I'm suppose to solve this problem ? Just deleting my beloved tabs ?
I believe there's a deeper problem in the way Firefox manage "this unload until selected" option because it isn't acting as if theye were not here.
My system is otherwise quite stable except my system clock can go back in time a little bit, is it a possible reason for the crashes ?
Is there an 'hardcoded' limit number of tabs opened ?
Shall I post on Bugzilla where no one seems to listen to anything ?
Or you just consider this a 'non normal usage' and do not even care ?
Thanks to anyone helping me and sorry for any mistake in english.
PS: FF lacks a simple way of knowing how many tabs you've got.
