Firefox: WTF?

Firefox's memory leaks strike once again. In the image to the right, you can see my page file running at a nice constant 900+ mb.
For the record, I only have 512mb of physical memory, the rest of that was in the virtual PF. Not surprisingly it made my laptop slower than a molasses on a dead pig on ice, so I killed the process, which dropped my PF usage under 300mb. It is absurd that 6 hours of heavy usage and having ~20 tabs open eats that much memory. Arguably, most people don't make the Internet their religion, but seriously, I've had flight simulators that used less RAM than that.
