Mozilla Firefox 15.0
August 28, 2012
Mozilla today launched Firefox 15, boasting that users will see "drastic improvements in performance" because of new code that stops add-ons from leaking memory.

There is actually one huge difference with version 15.
They finally fixed memory leak, which affected especially those people with bigger number of add-ons.
I've been using FF 15 since early beta and it works superbly.
I had a huge number of add-ons and I used to restart FF every couple of hours because increasing RAM usage was making it unstable.
No more restarting with version 15.

Mozilla has released an update to version 15 of Firefox to correct a bug in the web browser's Private Browsing feature. Private Browsing is intended to allow users to browse the internet without saving any data about the sites and pages they've visited. However an error in the recent Firefox 15.0 release meant that Firefox was storing sites visited in its cache while Private Browsing was enabled.

Mozilla Firefox 15.0.1 released.
