firefox 2.x vs. firefox 3 beta 1 on mac os 10.5.1

i've been using firefox 2 for a while.  my standard m.o. is to initially
open nine windows and leave those open all the time.  the browser is
open for days and days.  each of the initial nine windows has multiple
tabs -- 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 7, 11, 16, 18.  after a few days, the real memory
usage as reported by activity monitor usually grows to about 700MB or
more.  (i've got 8GB RAM so it ain't pretty but it doesn't cause too
many problems.)  some of the pages are fairly static (i.e., they're
reloaded manually), others are reloaded automatically (e.g., nagios or
mrtg reports).  of course, in addition to the initial nine browser
windows i also open and close many other windows/tabs throughout the
'lifetime' of the browser.

when using firefox 3 beta 1 and the very same m.o., after just 30
minutes the real memory usage is more than 1.5GB

also, firefox 3 beta 1 generally seems slower:  especially when clicking
on the bookmarks menu item (it takes longer for the bookmarks list to
appear), and when opening multiple tabs in a window.

i'm more than happy to gather whatever doc you would need to debug this.

Comments: Folks - I can understand you disabling any incompatible extensions when installing Firefox 2 Beta 1 in an environment where a previous Firefox installation exists (in my case, Firefox 1.5.0.4). However, what the heck were you thinking when you configured the Firefox 2 Beta 1 install to disable those same extensions in my existing Firefox 1.5.0.4?!!!

Allow Firefox and Firefox 3.1 Beta/RC exist on the same machine in Mac OS
Name: Adam Jimerson Email: vendionatcharterdotnet Product: Firefox Summary: Allow Firefox and Firefox 3.1 Beta/RC exist on the same machine in Mac OS Comments: It would be nice if the Firefox 3.1 beta/RC could exist parallel with the stable Firefox 3.0.7(?) for compatibility reasons in case a user runs across a site that doesn't work with 3.1 yet but works with 3.0.x. This can be done simply by just renaming the Firefox 3.1 launcher from Firefox to FirefoxTesting or something like that, depending if Mac OS allows white space in program names. I am not familiar enough wi...

Firefox 1.5.0.1 on Mac w/ OS 10.2.8
Just installed Firefox on a 266hz iMac running OS 10.2.8. I have put an alias in the Dock and it seems to work fine but everytime I start it up it pops up a small window with a large icon, a b&w icon and a image of a folder with a capital "A" . It also puts an extra alias on the desktop. It looks like a hard drive with the fox on it. If I drag that alias to the trash it will put up another, very annoying. Is there a fix?

Firefox 3.1 becoming Firefox 3.5
As was discussed at the delivery meeting yesterday, we're proposing to change the version number of Shiretoko from 3.1 to 3.5. The increase in scope represented by TraceMonkey and Private Browsing, plus the sheer volume of work that's gone into everything from video and layout to places and the plugin service make it a larger increment than we believe is reasonable to label ".1". 3.5 will help set expectations better about the amount of awesome that's packed into Shiretoko, and we expect uptake help from that as well. It's important to note that 3.5 repre...

Firefox 3.5 vs. Firefox 3.1
Dear Mozilla team, I have got just one question: I have seen that you talk [1] about version 3.1 of Firefox and the successing version 4.0, what about your plans to call the successor of Version 3.0 Firefox 3.5 as it was described on the figure [2] (from the roadmap wiki page: [3]) you have planned the version 3.5 to be based on Gecko 1.9.1.x Have you already decided how to call this version 3.1 or 3.5, I hope you also want to avoid the version number chaos like with the versions 1.1 1.4 1.5 ... I think it will be better to use the number 3.5 instead of 3.1 if it will be necessary t...
