Task manager memory help please thanks.

I have been using a program called imacro - simply its a add on for firefox , when you run it it works on web pages to auto click any tab you want and plays auto 24 hours a day ...
that being said -

Issue is firfox builds up and builds up intill in the task manager the memory gets full.
and then crashes firefox.

I then have to set up imacro again to run . (when it should be auto to run 24 hours a day)
if i wanted...

Is there any program or anything that can reduce the memory leak ??..
i have cleared cache i have no apps running no additional add-ons running in firefox.

No other programs running infact i even brought a vps to see if the issue would be resolved in here and , firefox does the same in there ....
i uploaded my brothers u tube click here to view imacro help - YouTube

how can this memory leak be resolved - i have tried so many way that you can think of on the internet nothing has worked...

Firefox stores all the tabs you've opened (and closed) in RAM, and when you exit FF it clears the cache. Chrome does this as well, but the tabs are split in to individual processes. So if your script opens a lot of tabs, it's going to need a lot of memory. You can change the memory cap of firefox in browser.cache.disk.capacity in your FF install directory, set it to a lower number depending on how much RAM you have.

Have you tried using opera? If you're using a Javascript, opera is usually the best option.

creating such a system would involve quite a significant amount of relatively complex coding I'd say, so thats not a option sorry already looked,

That doesn't involve any coding at all. Opera is a program that's installed like anything else.

It sounds like you have a buggy release of Firefox. I used to be a Firefox user, but I got tired of the quirkiness and the issues, so I switched to Chrome. No memory leaks, no issues, and it's faster.

Vbs scripts are coding for imacro - and they do involve understanding of coding,
and you can not use imacro - on chrome (well you can but has a replay of 99 times only - firefox using imacro runs 24/7.....
anyway i got a friend to code a small exe program that reduces memory leak ...
Thanks for responses

Try firemin, set at "max ram usage" (a relative term) still keeps the memory leaks in check. You'll see firefox run in a few mb of space, which is pretty amazing.

he wants to use a firefox plugin that automates actions. Since it does not exist for Opera, having somthing like that work on opera does require a bit of coding.
