If you’re a Firefox enthusiast, the Mozilla community is currently looking for additional volunteers to help reduce memory usage and fix any memory leaks in the browser. If you’re not a programmer, Firefox programmer Jesse Ruderman says you can still help:

    “If you’re a Firefox user, an easy way to help is to browse with a trunk nightly build wrapped in a script that calls leak-gauge.pl when Firefox exits. If it reports that documents or windows leaked, try to figure out how to reproduce the leak and then file a bug report.”

The goal of the project is to reduce the memory usage in Firefox 3. On his blog, Ruderman details a number of leaks that have already been identified and fixed.

For more info on Firefox 3, check out the project’s wiki page at Mozilla.
