    True, but there are real leaks in the 3.0 branch as well. Mimicking the others I'm ogling mine in the task monitor and the memory usage fluctuates wildly, even when doing nothing and also when the # of threads and such are reduced.

    As 2.0.0.x has a little memory problem, we should look into future. So don't cry if we have good results with 3.0. It won't be "fixed" in 2.0.0.x anyway...

    My daily build of Firefox 3.0 has 15 opened tabs and uses around 80 MB RAM. Does not really matter out of 2 GBs in total

    Are you all having real issues or just seeing lots of memory being used?
    I'm running XP with 20 FF windows open with 3 to 10 tabs in each with no issues. I run for weeks like this (until patch time usually).
    It appears to be doing a fine job of managing my 2gb of memory. Though I only have 68m free right now. Still no system operation issues.

    I've been running the same extensions for the LONGEST time. Nothing's changed. Come to think about it, I uninstalled quite a few too.

    Most memory leaks are caused by extentions.

    Run in safe-mode to confirm this.

    Gonna revive this thread to gripe BIG time..

    OMG. The latest FireFox update (2.0.0.7) has THE WORST memory leak I've ever had EVER.

    No problems here:

    All active at the same time here...

    Mozilla: 47MB, two windows and 3+1 tabs running for hours
    Thunderbird: 34MB
    Firefox: 33MB one window, with 2 tabs

    Dual screen monitors with TV going on one monitor.

    About 20+/-2% CPU usage, 36 processes.

    I never have seen problems with Firefox. I use Mozilla for my primary browser because of the way it handles multiple logins for email etc. Otherwise, my son uses Firefox for hours on end as his primary without problems.
