Stop Firefox from eating up your memory with freeware Firemin

Posted In Browser - By Techtiplib on Friday, June 15th, 2012 With No Comments »

Mozilla claims to have improved the memory usage of Firefox significantly. In fact, they seem to be proud of the fact that involuntary memory leaks are totally eliminated. This is all strange, because while I’m busy writing this article, my Firefox is using between 250MB and 300MB of memory. As a side note; I am using the latest Firefox version.

Firefox still uses more memory than most other web browsers. Truthfully, the amount it uses is ridiculous. Firefox can use up to 500MBs of memory if you keep it running. In addition, you will see that the memory usage keeps rising because of, you guessed it, memory leaks. Some Firefox users even reported memory usage over 1000MBs. That is half of the memory gone on most computers.

Firemin

So, is there a solution? The answer is simple, Firemin. You will see its effectiveness almost instantly and the best part is that it is completely free. To use Firemin; you will need to download the Firemin.exe file, decompress it and run Firemin.exe from the extracted folder.

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.
