While answering a question this evening, and just before I clicked Submit, Firefox temporarily froze. I thought it had frozen completely and just lost my entire response, but it barely recovered long enough for me to copy my response to the clipboard and into Word.
I looked at the task manager and Firefox was using 3.3 GB of Ram so it was at its limit. I have had this problem before on EE when answering questions and now it is an apparent memory leak. I can reproduce it by scrolling down to the bottom of a question page where it shows the footer, some video shortcuts and suggested topics. While idle there, the memory usage in Firefox gradually increases.
Has anyone else experienced this issue?
