I too have been plagued by this bug for months, but I think I have something (useful) to add.
It doesn't seem to matter how many tabs I have open, but if YahooMail is one of them, I experience the following:
Memory use gradually creeps (about 5MB/min) until it maxes out (2GB), then the swap starts growing. Once the available RAM approaches 0, the system becomes terribly unresponsive.
However, if I close YahooMail, there is no noticeable increase in memory
use after leaving Firefox open overnight.
Hope that helps!
