  • Firefox memory reduction

    I know a few of you here use Firefox, and some of you may even have it open at work visiting certain forums (how dare you, do you realize how much productivity you're wasting? Almost as much as I am by posting this). Do the following to reduce memory usage:

    ================================================== =======
    I found this new configuration entry at cybernetnews.com and IŽam suprised how easy it was to implement and how big the impact was. Have you ever noticed that firefox seems to become slower and slower the longer you are working with it without closing it ? I happen to open lots of tabs when researching and minimize firefox regulary when writing in open office for example. It tends to slow down the system and up until now the only solution I could come up with was to exit firefox and restart the browser.

    Now, this fix helps when you are facing the same problem. After adding a single configuration line firefox will only use 10 megabyte of ram when you minimize it. All you need to do is the following:

    1. write about:config in your firefox address bar and hit enter.
    2. right click and select new Boolean.

    3. Paste config.trim_on_minimize in the field and hit enter again
    4. Select True from the list.
    5. Restart Firefox.


    Thats all, pretty easy huh ?

        I always have memory problems any time, with or without the porn...

        Thanks, Reuber. Everything actually appears faster after doing that. I'll see what happens when I open up some porn in multiple tabs.

            Thank you, all very good points. Yes, my personality type is fairly laid back and even implementing things such as contracts and deposits has been out of character. To take the lead is very unnatural...

            That load issue is more important than any color issues you may have.

            If you have black shapes with white outlines, that could be a problem if not dealt with properly. If you expand a black shape with a white outline, the black fill shape will be half under the white line....
