Hi Wirawan,

I recently ran across a similar problem in Intrepid.  If I left Firefox
running, it would eventually consume all of my memory and cause lots of
problems.  I spent a considerable amount of investigating this, and I
recently determined that it was actually caused by leaving Firefox open
with Best Buy's website.  This is likely to be the cause of the your
problem as well as you listed bestbuy.com as one of the websites you had
open when Firefox started gobbling up memory.  Also, this doesn't appear
to be an Ubuntu-specific problem.  I was able to reproduce this with the
Windows version of Firefox as well.  Thus, I plan on reporting this
apparent bug to Mozilla.
