Bug #2307: Firefox has memory leak

Author: Pierre Abbat
Status: New
Priority: Normal
Target version: 

I had Firefox (the prepackaged one that calls itself Aurora) open for two days or so. If I use it after it's been up for several hours, it gets slow, and I have to kill and restart it. I forgot to do this, so during Hammer maintenance, the kernel killed X, resulting in a strange display. I had to shell in from another box and kill kdm, then as processes still using the dead X remained, I had to reboot. Firefox version is 6.0.2; kernel version is v3.1.0.114.g7fba7-DEVELOPMENT. I had a few Google Docs and Google Maps open in it. I don't see Konqueror taking over the memory like this.
