Opera is having a heck of a time with it also. Something is definately not good here.

Had it today again on another computer. We should all just switch from firefox to a better browser(Safari for example). :P
Better? I personally think that Firefox is much more secure then Safari, the only issue here is some of Nethams code.
Lets not make statements about one browser being better then another ( IE is an exception because it is known to be worse then others, although IE9 took a huge leap ).
Anybody got any idea why Firefox hates Omnom now?
Apparently Netham thinks it's two functions calling each other over and over again, filling up memory.

Are your guy's computers slower than poop now?  Or is it a coincidence?

As long as I don't let it overflow into my swap I'm fine but if it fills up your ram enough you computer will slow right down. This is because while OmnomIRC is running it is continually filling up your ram due to two functions calling each other ( or so Netham thinks ) so close your browser and you should be fine again ( as soon as everything clears out of swap ). You might want to disable OmnomIRC, and then reboot your computer if it did end up in swap because it can take a long time to empty out swap sometimes. ( Windows does have swap too, it creates a temporary Swap file and grows/shrinks it as necessary )

I think we should keep a copy of this buggy OmnomIRC and give it to Mozilla. It is the web dev's fault in this case, but it might be interesting for them to analyze. Their memory profiling is top notch, and this case scenario might enable them to optimize more...

But having two functions calling each other ad infinitum still isn't a good idea O.O

I agree that Mozilla should fix the problem on their side too though, since all other browsers handle it gracefully.

If you call slowly filling up your ram until everything slows down to a crawl and not really giving you any warning graceful
:P

Well, this explains why my fire fox was wigging out. Good to know it wasn't the browser. :)

I don't think they are interested, because I submitted a bug report of a script that fills the entire memory in seconds, and they didn't care.

Well remember mozilla is a community as well as a company, so only those who looked at your report didn't care
