Eliminate Firefox memory leaks Firemin is a small app that eliminates all memory leaks in Firefox and keeps memory consumption at bay. The program runs in the system tray and constantly optimizes Firefox's memory by forcing it to release some of the memory it so greedily hangs on to. During our review, we ran Firefox with 8 opened tabs and just let it sit there for 30 minutes. During that time, memory consumption steadily increased to nearly 100 mb. We then activated Firemin and memory consumption decreased to 1-5 mb and remained within that range for the duration of the test. Firemin uses a save Microsoft API (EmptyWorkingSet) to force Firefox to release some of the reserved memory without causing stability problems. Runs in the system tray and does not require installation. Copyright Snapfiles.com

Kind of meh 2 stars by EmpressTrudy Sep 02, 2014 (Read all my 16 reviews)
It squashes out excess RAM but it makes your CPU work much harder. Anyway, the way most websites and apps are built today the bottle neck is the obscene amount of disc thrashing they force in order to get the limitless gobs of awful java and javascript to run show Review details
Buggy software 2 stars by Bebo10 Nov 05, 2012 (Read all my 2 reviews)
I didn't see much of a difference if any, as I am using a memory optimizer, and the options are NOT saved, always reverts to don't launch Firefox, needs fixing! show Review details
I guess it really does work 5 stars by gimpguy Aug 12, 2012 (Read all my 1159 reviews)
Immediately after optimizing, launching Firefox, there was a difference. Firefox is now opening right away, pages are loading fast and there is no more delay. Regardless if this was supposed to accomplish such a thing, it works. Multiple tabs open, no issues or slowdowns. I was reluctant to use this as Firefox was always fairly stable for me but this really did make a difference and anyone who uses Firefox should get this. show Review details
