Adblock Plus does support collapsing does it not ;-)"

Apr 6th 2011 7:29PM Oh while I am on the subject you can have these as well:

Here is a list of the adjustments I make to the default profile:

The usual voodoo:

browser.display.show_image_placeholders: False
network.http.max-connections: 48
network.http.max-connections-per-server: 32
network.http.max-connections-per-proxy: 16

network.http.proxy.pipelining: True

ui.submenuDelay: 0

YMMV

1. Try a new profile.
2. Disable ALL your extensions, add them back in one at a time - identify the one causing the isse.

It may be your box or a add-on - its not Firefox that was fixed ages ago.

Don't confuse firefox making good use of lots of available ram with a memory leak.

If you have 8GB of RAM (as all real men do)... then if you want firefox to use more to speed up resonce... its exactaly as Chrome does.
