Firemin v11.8.3.8398

A small utility to reduce the amount of memory Firefox or other browsers use.

Having Firefox memory issues? Is it using over 1GB of your precious computer memory? Download Firemin and control the amount of memory Firefox uses. Firemin works with Google Chrome, Opera, Brave, Palemoon, or any other executable.

From the author:
Although Firefox memory usage improved a little over the last few years, it still uses a lot of memory; a little more than we feel comfortable with.

Programs on my computer can stay open and run for days or even weeks, and Firefox is no exception. Because of this Firefox was using over 3 GB of memory after a few days. Itís quite normal for Firefox to be sucking up over 250 MB of memory right off the bat. In a memory leak, youíll see the memory usage keeps increasing the longer the program is open/in use and this is exactly what happens with Firefox.

Simply put, Firemin will attempt to eliminate Firefox memory leaks and decrease the amount of memory Firefox uses. All I did was tweak our Memory Booster a little and applied it to Firefox and this solved the memory leak issues.





Using Firemin

Select your browser
Firemin will work with any browser, in fact, it will work with any program. For example, to configure it for Firefox; on the main Firemin screen, press the Browse button and navigate to the Firefox directory (normally C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox) and select the Firefox.exe executable. Press the Save button to store the setting.




Configuring Firemin
Still on the main screen; set Firemin to Reduce memory every 500 milliseconds. Although 1000 is the default here, we found that sometimes a lower setting yield better results. Play around with this setting to find your ideal configuration.

The Only reduce memory if usage over x setting allows you to allocate a certain amount of memory to your browser. If you are experiencing issues with YouTube audio clipping or your browser seems sluggish, set this to 80MB or higher.

Extended processes
The extended processes feature allows you to specify additional executables to optimize. On the main screen, press the Extended Processes button to open the Preferences window.

If you are experiencing the YouTube audio clipping issue while optimizing Firefox, try removing the plugin-container.exe executable from the list. Remember to press the Save button to store extended processes.




Other options
Other settings worth mentioning are the Start Chrome when Firemin starts and Start Firemin when Windows starts. We do not recommend using these settings together unless you want your browser to also start when Windows starts.

The first mentioned option is useful for when you would like to start Firemin from a shortcut and have your browser automatically open with it. This way you can automatically optimize your browser when opening it.
