Right here goes, hope this makes sense!!
I have left my machine running 13.10 running all night, with f-fox open
on you-tube, not playing just open and on night 1 I awoke to a frozen
Night 2 I left it open, same as before except I set a small script to
write the top 3 lines of 'top' to my-log.txt, this showed that
plug-in-container (presumably flash as the only other one left enabled
was Ghostery) gradually crept up in mem usage, until the last log entry
said 87.6% (of 2.5gib)
So to the OP I think you are correct :) can anybody confirm if this
happens on Chrome(ium) or if it is a f-fox specific issue, as then I
know who to moan at ;)
If it is a Flash issue in general, then I will try and raise a bug? with
Adobe, if it is a f-fox issue the Mozilla will get it!
Your thoughts appreciated.
