Firemin 2.0.5.2055 - optimize Firefox memory usage

Firemin will attempt to eliminate all memory leaks in Firefox.

Firemin uses a safe API function called EmptyWorkingSet that basically forces the process (in this case Firefox) to use less memory. Other words, tells Firefox to give back some of the system memory it’s hanging on to. For those of you who are a little more technically minded, you can read more about it here. Using this function will sometimes result in a slight performance decrease measured in milliseconds , but I do mean slight, the chance of you noticing the performance decrease is almost zero.

Firemin is not one of a kind. There are similar “Firefox memory boosters” available; however, most of them are frauds (work mostly contain spyware and malware) or work using the Placebo function (if you think it will work, it will). Firemin does not contain any malware and actually do decrease Firefox memory usage, up to 95% (under 1MB in some cases). Firemin has not received any negative reviews and no side effects like browsers crashing have been reported, “knock on wood”.

Even though Mozilla keeps claiming that they fixed their memory-leaking issues, it seems like this is not completely true. Maybe one day, but until then, Firemin will lend a friendly hand.

Firefox consumes much less memory then chrome or ie with multiple tabs open!!
Releasing stuff from the memory is not always a good idea as advertised, such as when u minimize your browser and if pages were released from memory upon maximizing your browser it would have to read and cache the same content all over again, which means browser lags and hard disk thrashing.
InShort: stay away from such apps and tweaks!!

I know Firefox has always been know for memory leaks, but seriously?!

Anybody ever used this or one of the other memory savers that are there?

Does it actually do anything? Cause any other issues?

I know Firefox has always been know for memory leaks...

These days are now long gone... It has vastly improved its memory usage and no to mention adding Generational GC + electrolysis (per process model) with less overhead soon.

Wouldn't agree with that personally.
I tried the latest version last week and noticed it was choppy at scrolling (i5, 8GB ram so really shouldn't be). I had 5 tabs open and it was pushing 1GB of memory (and constantly rising) when I checked task manager.

I swore by Firefox for years, but sadly it's a mere shadow of Chrome now IMO. Shame as I'd love to support software from smaller companies.

As for scrolling, its always been this way on Firefox. IE11 outclass every single Windows browser in this regard.
As for memory consumption, it depends on websites as well you visit or have opened. So you should rather than checking task manager, should open about:memory to triage conflict.

Sounds like a leaky plugin. I don't get that issue at all.
