#10 FF doesn't let go of memory

I can open a few tabs and load sites and crank firefox mem usage to 66mb, then close all sites and leave the browser on a blank local page and the mem usage does not reduce. If I close and reopen FF, it will drop but sometimes not to the 28mb that seems to be my typical bottom line.

Windows keeps increasing my virtual memory allocation and I'm blaming it on Firefox. I hope someone is working on this.
