One of the biggest improvements that Mozilla claims is improved memory usage, in particular, the vanquishing of memory leaks. If you thought it was too good to be true you were right. Firefox still uses a lot of memory – way too much memory for a web browser.

We like keeping our apps running for a few days (that’s just the way we roll) and because of this Firefox was using over ~800MB of memory after about 3 days. It’s quite normal for Firefox to be sucking up ~100MB of memory right off the bat (in a memory leak you’ll see the memory usage keep increasing the longer the browser is open/in-use).

Rather than complaining about it, we decided to try and fix it. Enter Rizone Firemin (Formerly Firefox Plumber); simply put; it will eliminate most memory leaks in Firefox. All we did was tweaked our memory optimization engine a little and applied it to Firefox and most memory leaks was gone. To use Firemin; you will need to unzip and double click on Firemin.exe and let it babysit Firefox. You expected it to be more complicated, we are truly sorry to disappoint you.
