	That sounds like a GTK issue (or GTK port issue), they're all GTK
applications. I've never had Firefox or LibreOffice smash even an 8GB
system into the ground but I don't use the latter much and I don't play
HTML5 games on the former. I have seen sites which cause Firefox to
steadily consume ever increasing amounts of memory, closing the tab usually
clears things up, sometimes closing the tab and restarting Firefox.
