Another amazingly useful Firefox hack, this one instantly reduces Firefox’s memory usage on Windows.
This little fix will move Firefox to your hard drive when you minimize it, and as a result it will take up less than 10MB of memory while minimized. So far, from my experiences with using this today, when you maximize Firefox it will obviously increase the memory usage. However, it does not seem to go back up to the insane amount that it was at before minimizing it.
I am very impressed with the hacks that are found to improve the performance of our favorite web browser. Hopefully a lot of these hacks are incorporated in the next release.
