Most of it swapped out, fortunately. Probably holes.

I have been several days opening and closing windows in Firefox. A moment
ago, I opened a new one (http://localhost/server-info), and closed the rest.
And:

It is still using more than half a gigabyte? Why doesn't mozilla return all
that unused memory? Is that /good/ memory management?

Oh my! :-/

I'm running FF 3.0 rc1 doing lots of gmail / calendar / etc..

Seems about the same (or slightly more: 779m virt 273m res 16m shr).
I thought it was supposed to be a lot better than 2.0? Or are you
running rc1 as well?

FYI: I'm at 236 hours, so just behind you. I don't know that FF2
would have been stable for 10 days for me. So I suspect you are
running rc1 or not using as much javascript as I do.
