Read Dawn's full message for more details. Note that Mozilla 1.0 has not yet been released.

So, let me get this straight. Mozilla runs over a month without crashing, so it's extremely stable, and it takes a month for leaks to get so bad you need to *gasp* restart the browser (if leaks remain after shutting down the browser the OS is at fault). And according to you it isn't ready for a 1.0 release? Where do you work? Nasa?

And yes, between 0.9.9 and 1.0rc3 some memory leaks have been fixed. Here's a list of resolved browser bugs targeted for 1.0 (and so not in 0.9.9) with the mlk (memory leak) keyword: <http://bugzilla.mozilla.o…se+same+sort+as+last+time> This probably isn't an exhaustive list, but it does give you an idea of what's been happening.

Btw, you may want to update your browser version, 0.9.9 contained a security bug that let remote servers read local files. It's fixed in the latest releases, so ...
