Hi everyone! I was using the AFOM – Memory Recovery & Retention FF add-on (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/11922) created by the same development team as Memory Fox. I was really happy with it – I often have many tabs open at the one time, and that is a huge strain on FF and a huge drain on system resources. But I thought I'd give Memory Fox a go the other day and see if it worked as well or better. But AFOM came up the clear winner. Both significantly lowered FF memory CPU use, but AFOM hands down reduced my memory use to a negible level. Right now I have seven tabs open and I am only using 22,000k. With Memory Fox it was up around the 100,000 level. Both are good, but IMHO, the former is better.
@Karen: I swear when I first got MemoryFox and when I first wrote about it, MemoryFox was for FF only o_O. I know this because I was very particular about this point seeing as the developer had other add-ons that did memory cleaning for other programs also which I did not want. Developer must have changed it with the latest release.
Per the add-on description on the Mozilla site:
Attempting memory recovery, retention to the following:

Thanks for the commendation. I am using Memory Fox but, like you, tend to have loads of tabs open simultaneously – sometimes crashing FF in the process..
Will give AFOM a try and see if that improves matters.
AFOM is as an experimental beta
Memory Recovery add-on.
Note 3: If you have multiple User Profiles then AFOM will work ONLY on
the profile which AFOM was installed on.
