https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=263436 --- Comment #6 from Josef 'Jeff' Sipek <firstname.lastname@example.org> --- (In reply to Lena from comment #5) Interesting idea to use limits. Setting the limit to 4GB works to keep the *sum* of all the firefox processes' resident sizes under 4GB, but the main process's resident size is slowly growing (as before). So, while 2 days ago (shortly after restarting firefox) the main process accounted for ~750MB (~18% of 4GB) now it is 1560MB (38%). As a result, firefox keeps fewer process alive as time goes by. I don't know if it will stop growing at some point, but if it doesn't the main process will hit the 4GB limit on its own. :) Oh, and the virtual size of the main process is still ridiculous 13GB, but I suppose that doesn't matter that much. (Yes, I'm making a few assumptions about firefox's memory usage and FreeBSD kernel's handling of memory in that statement.) -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
