Firefox is experiencing a huge memory leak which persists after reinstallation. After 5 minutes, browser is consuming 15+ GB of RAM.

Postáilte

I'm using selenium webdriver with Firefox to download a large amount of content. After 5 minutes or so and visiting roughly 20-30 pages, Firefox's memory consumption balloons to over 15 GB of RAM or more. I've tried setting preferences to allow no caching, no history retention, etc. At one point I had 20+ GB of RAM in the page file, making my computer run horrendously slow. Note that I'm running an older version of Firefox because of Selenium, but problem persists with newest version (outside of selenium) as well.

I'm on Mac OS X 10.11 (fully updated) and running 32 GB of RAM. I viewed the console and Firefox cites a possible memory leak:

firefox-bin[3875]: notify name "com.apple.system.powersources.timeremaining" has been registered 20 times - this may be a leak

Earlier today, I had the same message with over 1200 registrations. I've tried to find this file to delete it but have not been successful.

Help?!
