    I have as well. Thanks for the link. I still think FireFox is the best browser.

    don`t do this to firefox it slows it down to the brink of crashing and makes the tabs almost useless...

    Hasn`t slowed mine down at all, and I use the tabs extensively. I only have 512M Ram so it`s nice.

    It isn`t really a memory leak in it`s strict definition, where a program doesn`t return memory after it exits. You`re just reducing the memory FireFox has.

    LOL @ jinexile
    LOL @ buddy "only 512 MB" - I only have 384 MB on this 4 year old clunker and it works fine. :-D

    This hasn`t slowed down firefox. Considering I adBlock all ads, and use extensions and tabs extensively.

    Good tip indeed.

    Firefox gets about 0.001% of the popups IE gets. If I even open IE I get popups for days afterwards.
