Firemin: Get rid of memory leaks in Firefox with this simple tool

Despite numerous optimizations throughout the updates, Firefox still uses significantly more memory than most popular browsers. It can even get as high as 500 MBs if you keep it running for a longer time.

However, it can rise even more – there were reports of even >1000 MBs memory usage from some users. That’s because Firefox has memory leaks. For those older systems that have 2 GB of RAM, this would mean Firefox is consuming half of the total memory.

Firemin is a free small utility that was created to solve this problem. Use it and you won’t be experiencing any more memory leaks in Firefox.

The tool relies on the EmptyWorkingSet API function (completely safe to use) to force the process to use less memory. In this way, Firefox will release some of the system memory so you can experience better computer performance.
