Firefox/Iceweasl Restarts

I used to say that I needed to quit and relaunch Firefox/Iceweasel about
every 5 days as it would become sluggish and less responsive otherwise.

Nowadays it seems more like 10 days. Of course, two things have changed in
that time: 1) I upgraded to version 4, and 2) I got a new quad-core i5
machine with 8GiB of RAM.

But looking at its current RAM usage, it’s only about 600MB physical, which
would have fitted comfortably in the old machine. So I think the difference
may be down to the newer version having better memory management.
