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

  • Bug 241518 [mozilla.org] 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?
