I can confirm it too... How bizarre. However, i've closed it, and the
Commit Charge in Windows is still up at 1851MB! It only clears when
you close the firefox process completely (as expected).

Hi,

there is a security vulnerability in Firebox 0.92 (latest Version)

this link causes that your virutal memory will be rise up 1,2 GB used
Memory...

maybe Thunderbird 0.72 is also vulnerable via HTML.
