Forever I've had problems, because I'm the kind of guy who has 1000 tabs open, with FFox eventually running out of memory, the GUI getting scrambled and then a crash soon would follow, usually with some loss of tabs.

Well, no more of this since I've installed memory fox. Typically FF will hover around 1600 MB mark for me and now its at 500. I can't remmeber how much plugin container would typically be, but I think around 300 and now its at 50.

So, give it a go, fellas, if you had trouble with memory in FF.

memory fox is complete crap - it just copies data from one memory to another - and back. happy waiting for data recovery :roll:
and read yourself
Memory Fox was NEVER intended to be a permanent fix for the memory issues.

https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/memory-fox/

so - you admit to have issues - resolve them and and memory fox will be history for you.

btw - somehow ridiculous to have 1000 tabs open and complain same moment about ram consumption. ](*,)
