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.

I tried this trick on both my home and work computer... both still end up using 500+mb of RAM after a day. :(
