The development cycle has all but ensured the end to my favorite browser. Version 8012 will fix that I'm sure. :) They really try too much to emulate google these days. I used to be able to part together boxes, put avg, zone alarm, and firefox on them and forget about them(after giving them away). Not any more. There is still that memory leak in ff as well. They should go back to what made them great imo. Not following chrome.

Uh, you’re a little behind the times. The Old-and-Broken 8012 has already gone into Testing, and Nightly is at 8045. It’s the New Hotness.
It does have a memory leak.
I have a terminal window running on the other screen running top, and when the memory fills up, and the load average climbs above 2.5, I do a pkill fox, and restart it.
