Windows 7: Mozilla MemShrink To Try to Fix Firefox Memory Leaks

12 Jun 2011   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Its about friggin time. I complained to them about this somewhere around Firefox 4.0 Beta <10. I am actually now using 5.0 Beta 3. No problems that I have noticed with 5.0 Beta other than a few incompatible addons which I replaced.

11 tabs open with 20+ Addons

Virtual size - 880 MB
Private Bytes - 480 MB
Working Set - 60 MB

Firefox plugin-container.exe can consume a lot of memory.

I currently have 57 Processes Running including Firefox and am using about 30% of my 4 GB of RAM on a W7 SP1 x64 computer.
