I have never had memory issues with Firefox personally but I close my browser often. Adobe Flash on the other hand ouch!
I use IE and I don't have any of these problems :-)

I dont know about Firefocx's memeroy leaking. I dont have any problem with that. I currenty use FireFox 5.0.1 on my PC. Am looking forward for better version Fire Fox in future
Meh its a problem especially when silverlight had a couple. Glitches.it would crash I would refresh page and whole time firefox would be running away with ram. I believe my record was just under 4gigs in between firefox and its plugins.
FireFox does get piggy at times indeed.

It works well for me,....I'll use the new version though.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
I love FF, and yes I am one of the ones who screams at the monitor when it crashes. I admit I love to have a gadzillion tabs up because I am multitasking through the social networking, my blogs, and anything else I find interesting in the interim. I don't know if I believe it is not going to crash. I am hopeful it doesn't crash, but I am not putting too much in it.
I use to use FF all the time, big in the recent builds I found it to become a hog and slow. Been on chrom ever since its debue and its running well for me

Using the new FF 6 here and sometimes use the Nightfly [Aurora] build both are a bit more snappier than previous FF5.
Came across this for some interessting reading and if you have the memory avail and a bit of time this could be a bit of fun

Might be just the thing to check the script esp if you have more than 4GB of ram and the time because Chrome is going to need it !
