I realise that Firefox uses up a lot of Memory (particularly as it tries to run each Tab separately). However, my Firefox seems to keep increasing its usage!

I can start with a number of Tabs open & (after refreshing each Tab - to ensure it is "lice" & "active") I will get (according to Windows Task Manager) about 1,300MB in use.

Without opening up any more Tabs & without trying to run any Web-Based Videos, over a period of a few hours it will increase & increase & increase - perhaps getting up to 4,000MB!

I've cross checked with "about:performance" (to open FF's own Task Manager), to show the individual Tab usage, & that NEVER totals up to anywhere near the figures shown by the Windows Task Manager!!

Obviously, my FF is fully up to date!

Any comments!

Sometimes it happens during the day too, but it always happens every night.

When I check the crash reports, the signature line says "OOM | small", which confirms my observation that it's running out of memory. On those occasions where it happens during the day, and I can catch it, the Peak Working Set in Windows Task Manager reveals that Firefox used all available memory before it crashed. (I have 8 gb total.)

It doesn't make any difference how many tabs I have open. I can have one tab open - about:home e.g. - and it can still crash with "OOM | small".

I wonder if Firefox spawns some background process that typically only runs at night, and that process is failing for some reason.
