Happens multiple times a day since updating to 2.0.07 just a few days ago. Kills all the open sessions, usually four or five so they don't work even though you can access them individually, you can not do anything with them and have to close them or kill the process to get them to restart. VERY annoying BUG!

Exit Firefox completely
and start browsing in Firefox safemode for a while.

As I could have predicted easily, running for several days in Safe Mode completely masked the problem so that it does not occur. However, today I noticed (as I did previously when I was getting the error message) that FireFox has sucked up ALL available memory and then some running 10 sessions doing nothing special, other than reviewing the contents of some search results for tutorials about SMTP. I'd say that 527,040K would be a little excessive for anything that I might be doing in FireFox and sure as hell looks like a race condition to me...

Comments?

If running in Safe Mode fixes the problem then it's an extension or theme causing this problem

I think you may have overlooked a key point, FireFox sucked up all my system memory in BOTH modes so I am NOT prepared to conceded its an extension problem... but I might entertain a memory leak in FireFox...
