View Full Version : Windows 7 and Firefox = Memory Leak?

I've got Firefox 3.05 installed on both my workstation and laptop as my main browser. But something I just noticed this morning. If you leave FF running for a while, let's say overnight, with a few tabs open, then close Firefox, hardly any of the memory gets freed up.

I did this and noticed that a lot of my memory was being used. Once I realize FF was the memory hog out of all my open apps, I close it but found that none of the RAM was opening up for other apps.

Anyone else experiencing this?

Hmmm, nope, can't say I've noticed that problem. Mind you I'm using Firefox 3.1 beta 2....so maybe it doesn't have the same problem...
