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.

Hey, at least it isn't taking as much as Battlefield... just barely.
