Default Re: Firefox 6.0 Final released

I love Firefox and its extensions. Nothing beats noscript and adblock, but their memory management is ridiculous.
I often have many tabs and keep the browser open for weeks and my memory usage won't go significantly down until I restart it. I can have the browser with 4 tabs opened hogging 500MB+ of ram. If I restart it, I end up with less than 150MB (with the same tabs).

This becomes aggravating when I need to start a VM (at work).
As the universe is curved, there cannot be a straight answer...
