Hi all (sorry about my english and uppercase :-)

SIMULATE: open the firefox-google-group in eg. 5-10 Tabs on firefox - and your MEMORY GROWS UP TO 1GB (10 Tabs on a iMac) and the Browser gets extremly slow (need kill process)

(tested on iMAC OSX10.6, and Windows Vista (the physical-mem-size is diff on windwos) - new installation v15b, std-plugin/adon - nothing changed)


DEAR MOZILLA - where is your problem to solve this ?? you founded a group to solve the leak-problem! WTF you do? nothing - just optimize the extension-memory (you solved in v15b!) BUT NOW SOLVE THE BASIC MEM-PROBLEM!! its ridiculous, on browsers like chrome, safari is NO PROLBEM (check with link above) - and a lots of users have this problem - NOW YOU CAN SIMULATE YOUR PROBLEM. :-(

GO HURRY FF AND WORK ON IT! ITS THE BEST BROWSER

I tried just one window open and Disabled most Plug-ins, etc. and my Memory was at 176,000 Kb - lowest I could get it. When I start up with 7 Tabs, it jumps to 250,000 and stays there or goes as high as 300,000.

Windows Live Mail (Window 7) takes 155,000 Kb so together, they use 3 -4 gigs of my 4 gig RAM memory! By then my computer is so slow that it won't move at all and I have to power it down and re-start it again.

I'm using Firefox 15.0.1.

So even at 176,000 (lowest I could get it with FF running) that's over a gig.

I had terrible problems with FF version 14 and Adobe, now that's finally fixed but this is worse - destroys my whole computer!
