How to Fix Firefox Memory Leaks

How to Fix Firefox Memory Leaks
Written by Admin

Current versions of Firefox tend to use more and more of your system's RAM as time goes on. Geeks call this problem a "memory leak" but this is not Firefox's fault but fault of the Macromedia Flash plug-in that is causing this problem.

To fix it, just follow these steps:
1)In your location bar, type about:config and press Enter
2)Right-click on the screen to bring up a menu, click on New then choose Integer
3)A pop-up box will ask you for the "preference name". Type in browser.cache.memory.capacity and Hit OK
4)Another pop-up box will appear - type in the number 60000
5)Close Firefox and restart the program.
