Hi,
Problem:

When I start downloading files, Firefox memory usage skyrockets. No mater if I download many or only 1 large file lets say 1 GB file or many files with total size 1 GB. Memory usage gets larger & larger.

Fir example Im DL right now 250 MB file & memory usage is 673MB(And is stable & constant) - 300MB (cuz its always uses 300 - 400 MB if its just running.)

You might want to read some of this....

Also, I've found that an external download app. works very well for my usage and this one multi-threads for faster downloading...

reason I use firefox to DL files is cuz I can do a part of a file & then preview it im MPC. & of course abort downloading it, if it turns out some #####. I tried IDM but I I get banned from the site for using it even with only using 1 thread or they wont give me files if I use idm.

I did not have any problems with memory before I upgraded to this version tho.

Edit: ye this is impossible, I cant Download large files, the longer it doenloads the bigger the memory consumoption & then it crashes.

Screw it im goin back the the old version.

You've got something interfering. Perhaps an extension written by a drunken developer. Too bad you reverted to an older version. That action always opens up security problems.

okey I felt like I should feedback this & say that I fixed the issue by uninstalling Firebug. & yes memory consumption is back to 200 mb even if I DL loads of stuff.

Thus issue solved.

Thanks. That's now reported here. I suggest you report this to the Firebug developer so it can be fixed.
