Capping ram assigned to firefox
Please tell me if it is possible to cap the amount of ram assigned to ffox, as it creeps up and up till over 1.3 gigs is being used.
I am referring to having a single webpage open - no tabs and no extensions.
I have shut down the browser, and restarted the laptop but cannot cure this problem.
Inevitably this slows everything down, and the pc fan will run non stop.
Thanks for any help.

Update to the latest version. Restart Firefox. Restart your computer. Disable resource consuming extensions and themes. Hide intrusive content. Use fewer tabs. Close tabs that use too many system resources. Check Firefox hardware acceleration.
Thanks for the response, however I clearly stated in my initial posts that there are no tabs or extensions in play - so that will not resolve the issue.
Again is there a way to cap the amount of ram assigned to ffox. is the question ....
