Journal marcosdumay's Journal: Tracking Firefox's memory usage 3

I want to know if the memory bug of Firefox is caused by an extension, and, if so, which one. So, if you have a huge memory usage (100+MB) even after closing all the tabs but one, please leave a comment here telling your usage and which extensions you have.

Also, if you know how to easily copy the extensions list for pasting here, tell me.

Tracking Firefox's memory usage

Comments Filter:
  • Bug 241518 [] makes calling addEventListener with a closure with access to a node in the document cause the document to never be garbage collected. It's been fixed, but I don't think the fix is in any Firefox release yet. Most Web pages don't trigger this bug, but it's pretty common in GreaseMonkey scripts. Maybe that's your problem?

Marvelous! The super-user's going to boot me! What a finely tuned response to the situation!
