Is this normal for FireFox?

Is this normal for Firefox to use this much RAM?

Pretty much. When you have multiple tabs open, and have it running for a while, yeah.

Yes, that kind of memory usage for firefox is totally normal. On my laptop right now, with only 4 add-ons installed and 5 tabs opened it's running at 190MB. No big deal though, as performance is great and I'm doing nothing else with the computer.

Hmmmmmm, might be worth it to make a Tray App that just calls EmptyWorkingSet with the FF process handle once every 1/2 hour.
