Description Zdenek Kabelac 2007-12-17 08:57:07 EST
Description of problem:
When firefox open page with lots of downloadbable content it eats way toooooo
much memory.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start empty firefox - check with top virt memory usage.
2. Open
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.

Actual results:

Expected results:
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).

This is where FTP with proper ~/.netrc makes sense.
$ ftp sunsite.mff.cuni.cz
ftp> cd /MIRRORS/fedora.redhat.com/linux/development/x86_64/os/Packages/
250 Directory successfully changed.
ftp> dir *xen*
227 Entering Passive Mode (195,113,15,26,244,52)
150 Here comes the directory listing.
...[very short and fast list]
ftp> get ...
ftp> quit
