Why does my Mozilla run out of memory?

    Hi all,
    I have a question which I hope someone will be able to answer. I really like
    the Mozilla browser (I'm currently using the 1.4 version) for browsing
    around. But what I dislike is the fact that the browser seems to run out of
    memory after a while. The surface disappears, turns white (I'm using a brown
    metallic skin) and the more I go on surfing the more intense the memory
    problem gets. Sometimes I clean the cache before the program crashes, but
    that doesn't always help resolve the problem. Why is it that Mozilla is
    having this problem, and is there anything I can do against that? I haven't
    experienced that problem with IE6 but I still prefer the way Mozilla handles
    websites. Thanks,
    d.

    P.S.: It seems to me that java applets make the problem much worse!

    There is a known bug in 1.4 on Windows 9x/ME systems. You can try
    Mozilla1.5beta or wait for 1.5final. (It's already fixed)

    BTW: de.comm.software.mozilla.browser= German Newsgroup

    There should also be a 1.4.1 update version coming out that also fixes
    the leak.

    Thanks for the suggestion. However, I just updated to Mozilla 1.5b and the
    problem persists. After approx. ten, fifteen minutes of browsing around the
    program seems to run out of memory, the surface disappears and graphics
    won't show up anymore. Could it be this problem wasn't fixed with the beta
    version already?

    The GDI Bug should be fixed and many people confirmed it.
    You must see a different problem..

    There's another memory bug, titled "Memory Leak much worse in 1.5b" ,
    a 1.5 blocker.
    http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=217663

    To see the 1.5 blocker buglist (currently numbering 9), go to the
    SeaMonkey build page
    http://tinderbox.mozilla.org/showbuilds.cgi?tree=SeaMonkey
    and follow the link from there.

    He get corrupt graphic and that indicates a problem with GDi handles.
    The OS should warn if it runs out-of-memory.

    I don't believe that he have a out-of-memory problem.
    The problem reloading www.heise.de is also no real memory problem.
    (It seems that only the Mozilla memory cache is filled with different ad
    images)
