    It's a problem with my browsing habits. I currently have 163 tabs open. I'm only up to 1.8 GB now (Fx 6.0a1). I'm impressed with how well Firefox handles memory. I don't think I've ever seen it go above 3 GB, and Firefox along with Thunderbird, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, After Effects, iTunes, Word, Excel, Kindle for PC, and thirteen instances of Windows Calculator have only currently pushed me to 3 GB total RAM usage. No performance impact whatsoever.

    My solution stands: get more RAM.

    It is true that Firefox uses lots of memory.But with a bigger RAM we can solve this problem.
