Well, at the top of the page pointed to by the URL"

"All versions of Firefox no doubt leak memory".

About caching - I leave my browser for the night, i.e. I do not
visit new pages, so whatever the caching was, it should remain the
same, still, Seamonkey/Mozilla/Firefox consume more memory then when
I left it.

What does caching have to do with this ?

Anyway, the URL says:

"No more than 8 pages are ever cached in this fashion, by default",

and I'm using the default, which means that after 8 pages have been cached,
there will be no more chached, that it, old pages will be thrown away from
cache if more than 8 pages have been vivsited, so memory usage shouldn't
be increasing after caching 8 pages.

As I wrote, memory usage is all the time increasing, even if I do not
visit new pages at all.

What else to understand ?
