What is this garbage? This reminds me of those crap programs from the Windows 95 era that claimed to defragment your memory or other such nonsense. Keep this junk off Betanews please.

Yea I agree. Why download this? Why cant Mozilla fix their own problems. No other browser has to have a "plumber" associated with it. The software offers no improvement otherwise. If you have problem with Firefox try Chrome. It is what it is.

I'd actually be fine with this software if they didn't advertise it as "fixing all memory leaks" which it does NOT do. Firefox's occasionally "high" (relative to what?) memory usage is NOT the result of memory leaks. It's more or less normal these days. Open up a bunch of tabs in Chrome, add up the memory used by each sandboxed process, and it uses just as much or more.

If you do suffer from an ACTUAL memory leak, it's probably because of a faulty add-on, and this software will NOT help you.

A modification that forces all addressed space to be located in virtual memory is all fine and well if that's something you want to do. Misleading potential users with blatantly false promises and descriptions doesn't help anyone, including the authors! They fix this and I'll give it three stars.
