Just like the question topic says.. Will the memory leaks ever be addressed and fixed?

FF has had bad leaks all the way back since 3.6.x, and they seem to only be getting worse as updates continue.

This is not nor ever has been an add-on/plugin issue. I have many computers at my disposal and all have had the same problems with FF. On any OS, with any hardware config, with clean installs.. No add-ons at all.. Lots of add-ons running.. Any possible variation you can think of. All have had memory leaks.

My current main computer.. FF 9.0.1.. With or without add-ons I can simply go to gmail.. google.. youtube.. wiki.. any site really.. Normal surfing habits. Within 20 minutes to an hour I'll look in my task-manager and see that FF has sucked up over 1.5GB easily. Now if I visit a site that has any sort of streaming, or large downloads.. (Downloading a file over 1GB? forget it.. Memory sky rockets) Multiple images, etc.. I can easily hit 6GB memory in use.

I'm running 16GBs of top of the line ram.. A Very beefy system.. so I rarely get crashes, but the sluggish response and ultimately freezing to the point have to shut down the process is very annoying. Every other PC I have, including 3 laptops, and 2 desktops.. All have the same memory leaks.. I'm running Win 7, Vista, XP, and multiple forms of Linux. All have the same issue.

I'd really like to know if the FF dev team is even attempting to address this issue? As everyone knows, this has been a big issue for what, almost 5 years now? Do a simple google search and you'll get over 400,000 hits for FF memory leaks.

You guys make the best browser that's out there, but it's getting worse and worse.. Will you fix it? Or be lost to the rest of great browsers that "could have been"..

dalepres How do you know what the problem is or isn't if you haven't fixed it? I "had" the same problems everyone else did with FF and now I don't. I also don't use FF 12 because of all the documented problems all over the Internet before I ever discovered this forum full of them. I leave one window open 24/7 to keep from having to reload FF every time to check emails. I don't have ANY toolbars or unnecessary extensions. Toolbars, like Yahoo, repeatedly "tap" the Internet, looking for new emails etc.

Memory leaks aren't the only problems with Firefox but then I'm not having that or any other problems
