Memory consumption temporarily goes up, sometimes above 700 MB with only this page, downloads and about:memory open.

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.
