funny about Firefox, sometimes i have it running all day and don't close it, given time memory use just keeps going up and up even if im not doing anything and or leave it just running with only one page going, ok maybe 10 pages but still.

Think iv seen it go as high as 1gig ram use.

 

Anyone see that too ? at the moment im running 43.0.1

I suggest you update Firefox. It's seriously outdated by seven versions, leaving you vulnerable to malware. :o
