Firefox on Mac OS X gets spinning wheel after several days of use
I have the latest version of Firefox, 8.0.1 and Mac OS X. After running Firefox for several days to a week or more, Firefox starts to become really slow and I would get the spinning wheel for a few seconds when I click a link or click on a field box. Then I have to reboot my computer and it is fixed for another week or so and the spinning wheel starts up again.
What is the memory usage of Firefox when this happens?
You can check the on the about:memory page via the location bar.
That page also has a button ant the bottom to reduce the memory usage.
