Anyone else think Iceweasel has a memory leak?


The way Iceweasel is running is starting to get on my nerves.

Debian stable
Iceweasel: 24.7.0

I'll have webpages and some youtube videos running. However, I think there is a memory leak somewhere. It's like memory isn't being correctly released as I surf through websites and YouTube videos.

Firefox does the same thing. It starts off really snappy, but the longer it's open, the more RAM and CPU it consumes. One time I had left Firefox open for atleast 2 weeks, and it was using 8 gigs of memory. Sometimes I see it using 100% of a single core, just for being open.
