Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 425961
Excesive memory usage for FTP listing
Last modified: 2007-12-18 06:20:48 EST
Description of problem:
When firefox open page with lots of downloadbable content it eats way toooooo
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start empty firefox - check with top virt memory usage.
3. See how the memory dissapears in firefox - aroung ~90M
BTW - galeon also eats a lot of memory for this task - but at least its more
then 2.5 times faster.
Maybe a bit more reasonable amount of memory consumed for display this amount of
lines and especialy faster (at least galeons shows it's possible).
Please report this bug at bugzilla.mozilla.org, Thanks.
