    Firefox bugs, any fixes forthcoming?

    I have noticed 2 bugs in firefox... one is the cross domain security issue which is just annoying, but acceptable for now, however the other!

    Firefox seems to have a memory leak! My site is a little tough on resources but nothing outrageous, it runs fine in IE but in FireFox after just a few minutes it is using 2gigs! Anybody know what's up? Is there a fix or one on the way?

    I was able to fix the problem by closing the tab that was running your website.

    What version of Firefox are you using? The computer I am on right at the moment is running 3.0.0 and the memory usage is OK, no leak. If you are leaking memory, also try disabling any extensions you have enabled and see if that fixes the problem.

    As far as bugs getting fixed, their bug database is online: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/

    What is the point of those orbs?

    Haven't a clue what you're talking about.

Also, since IE is partially built into the OS, any extra resources used by that could be masked by other components.
