Just out of curiosity, do you happen to have Firebug installed? That is one extension known to cause serious memory leaks in Firefox (unfortunately, probably not the only one). I saw a graph once that showed Firefox' memory usage over time with and without Firebug running. The difference was pretty dramatic.

I have no idea what Firebug is, and as I said I just tried FF3, I haven't been using FireFox (any version) or installed any extensions. I had never even fired FireFox up on this machine before I tried FF3. It's sad, I think I would have started using it instead of Epiphany, just because FF3 looks better now.. :/ I have no idea what could cause that strange memory-eating behaviour, but I hope it gets fixed soon!
