    I just bought a new laptop about two months ago, and I'm having memory usage issues with both Firefox and Windows Live Mail. Specifically, it seems as if the memory usage is extremely high after about a day of usage - it often climbs to about 700k for Firefox and 250k for Windows Live Mail. It slows up both programs and makes my computer very difficult to use. No other program that I use appears to do this.

    While I can restart my computer and whatnot to make it go away, I'd like to know why this is happening and what can be done to limit the memory usage of both programs. Is there anything that I can do here? Thanks in advance.
