Mozilla & Gecko clones "Firefox OS could actually be wildly successful, no matter how underwhelming the actual phones may be. And that's because - at least for now - you're not the customer; your carrier is." I'm extremely disappointed by Firefox OS so far. There's nothing wrong with the low-end hardware we've seen during MWC, but there is something wrong with low-end hardware that can't even properly run its operating system. To make matters worse, carriers are the boss here. Terrible first impression.

Fergy,

As a dev myself I'd feel it necessary to take out all the variables by turning off all the plugins and confirming the leak still exists. I'm not thrilled at running without adblock/ghostery/firebug for a week.

I'd be kind of surprised if they aren't already aware of the problem, so it's probably a matter of finding a similar bug and saying "me too".

But what is his bug report? "It slows down after a week of usage" Could a developer do something with this?
