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

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

Good tip indeed.

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

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