ahh. Found that article! thanks.
I'm not sure, though, that the memory leak issue is the same as this
CPU usage problem. the high memory usage is supposed to make your
browsing experience FASTER -- this issue with the cpu makes firefox
agonizingly slow -- so slow that pages actually load faster with
explorer on my girlfriend's windoze xp laptop, connected by wireless,
than with firefox on my debian desktop, connected by ethernet. That
doesn't happen with epiphany, for instance (but unfortunately I
don'treally LIKE epiphany...).
I'll keep hunting around though.
