[IE] Anyone ever see this

Not really asking for help just pointing out something INSANE (mods feel free to move if another forum is better for this)

btw I'm blaming »blogs.computerworld.com/
because thats the site I had openand since I changed to waterfox opening it the mem seems normal

If a different browser doesn't have the same issue, wouldn't it be more sensical to blame the browser vs the site?

well it might have been some plug-in on the site, and I don't have any plug-ins loaded in waterfox

plus I was leaving the page open overnight so I'd easily resume reading.

and sure IF I used 32bit IE it wouldn't have been able to use quite as much.

From your screenshot it looks like you have 5 instances of IE open.. (I can do that with MyIE2 also but i have it locked to 1 instance only (Even if i click to open a new instance))

Some websites do that to me (XP)!
I just delete them all and open the browser again, if they are still there I run malware and virus scanner!

I had 4 tabs open
ie 8 and newer (on that computer its IE9) it starts a process for each tab and one master one

the instance that was hitting 5GB was the tab that had the site I mentioned open.

That site would just slowly climb and climb, I had IE open for about 4 days at that point (left it open when I left for the day and just locked the pc)

seemed like a mem leak

Give IE9 32-bit a try. I remember reading that IE9 64-bit uses an old JavaScript engine (probably the same one as IE8 uses), it's possible that it has other irregularities along with it.
