Firefox and memory
buzzed, B&W

For some reason, Firefox sucks down/leaks memory like nothing else on my work laptop . . . it's currently taking up 466 megs with no tabs and a blank page. I just closed (making sure the process ended) and restarted it, and it's using around 27 megs. Let's see how long it takes to get back up to ridiculous levels of RAM/swap usage . . .

I bet if you disable all extensions, it'll take weeks to or months to leak that much.
