    FireFox users with less RAM should use this tweak because FireFox really do eat a lot memory after few hours of active usage.

    Also i have noticed that FireFox can even hang and crash on older computers when a lot of tabs are opened in short time.

    Whats funny is that my backup computer(home-built), which has only 49 megs of ram, runs firefox fine whereas that program shows it as using 51, although it does crash every once in a while, as does every other program it runs. You get used to it though.
