In the last month or so, two different computers show increasing memory commitments using the Windows Task Manager. On a laptop with 2GB of memory and memory loads around 800MB, it hangs with Firefox consuming 99% of the CPU. The whole computer is hung up. It does not want to switch tasks. For instance, if I've used the computer for heavy web searching and document downloads, I was at over 500MB memory load. Closed Firefox with Task Manager, and reloaded. Only 150 MB required to bring Firefox back to the close condition.
