[DragonFlyBSD - Bug #2307] Firefox has memory leak

Issue #2307 has been updated by Pierre Abbat.

I'm pretty sure by now that the Firefox taking up more memory is the result of opening Google Docs or exploring Google Maps. The XFCE terminal, though, definitely has a bug, and I haven't seen that bug on my Linux laptop, which has XFCE. Konsole also has a bug, which results sometimes in every Konsole window hanging when one of them runs less, but that seems to be a known bug in Konsole. I'm going to wait until the next release of binary packages and see if those bugs are still there.
Bug #2307: Firefox has memory leak

Author: Pierre Abbat
Status: New
Priority: Normal
Target version: 

I had Firefox (the prepackaged one that calls itself Aurora) open for two days or so. If I use it after it's been up for several hours, it gets slow, and I have to kill and restart it. I forgot to do this, so during Hammer maintenance, the kernel killed X, resulting in a strange display. I had to shell in from another box and kill kdm, then as processes still using the dead X remained, I had to reboot. Firefox version is 6.0.2; kernel version is v3.1.0.114.g7fba7-DEVELOPMENT. I had a few Google Docs and Google Maps open in it. I don't see Konqueror taking over the memory like this.
