RAM memory usage
« on: May 15, 2011, 03:04:25 PM »
Hello
I have a problem and i don't know how to fix it.
When i'm on this site, my RAM memory usage increase verry fast. In aprx. 5 minutes the RAM usage is above 95%. Then my Modzilla crash and automatically is turning off. Why is that? How i fix it?
Thanks.

Sorry if my English is not perfect

Do you have an old version of Firefox? Some of the older versions had a terrible memory leak (an issue which does exactly what you described, although not usually that bad). Try updating your browser.

If your browser is up to date try another.

Yes, my Firefox is up to date.
I see that i don't have this problem with IE8. But I'm using a Modzilla and i want to resolve this problem, not to bypass it.

Any memory leak I've ever encountered has been hardcoded in (i.e. you can't fix it without having access to the source code and recompiling it). I'm not familiar with Modzilla though so it's possibly something you can fix on your own, but I doubt it.

On the plus side a memory leak that bad won't just be affecting you and will be a priority to fix, so I doubt you'll have to wait long.
