Mozilla & Gecko clones Many people have complained about Firefox's memory use. Federico Mena-Quintero has a proposal for reducing the amount of memory used to store images, which, in his proof of concept code, "reduced the cumulative memory usage [...] by a factor of 5.5."

It's probably not memory leak, but rather memory FRAGMENTATION, which is much, much harder to detect and to fix.

No, there was some memory leaks in Firefox. I think they were fixed in 1.5, but not in the 1.0.x series.
