Memory leakage in Firefox 17.0.1 related to a single webpage- is it a FF bug?
How to reproduce: open this page, leave open for 5-10 minutes, and make it active: http://www.pickpackpont.hu/csomagkereso?bc=
Make another page actice, wait a minute, go back to this a few times. Memory consumption temporarily goes up, sometimes above 700 MB with only this page, downloads and about:memory open.
System: Firefox 17.0.1 on Ubuntu linux 12.04 + MATE DE
hardware: Sempron 2800+, Abit KU8 motherboard, 2x512 MB DDR400, ATI Radeon 9200SE 5964 (AGP) (not supported, running in VESA mode)

After filtering out ||pickpackpont.hu/static/pubimg/* &
||pickpackpont.hu/static/banners/* using flashblock, memory usage returned to normal. These filters are related to the banner list of partners at the bottom of the page. I also emailed the webmaster of the page. Just in case if it's not a FF bug but lazy web programming.
