Ramback 1.0 doesn't seem to have a noticeble difference Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I have to keep clicking on Tools/Clear Caches when my own hard drive finally light stops. The hard drive light flashes some more then i have to keep doing this, which doesn't seem to have a noticeble difference. What I find more effective is closing down Firefox and starting again. Try not to have too many memory/processor hungry tabs running like Yahoo Mail and Planefinder.net.

I have been using it on FF18 and 17, 16 i think
Window XP SP3
half gig RAM
Pentium 4 2.8 Ghz

Add-ons page says last updated 20 December 2012 but its the same version 1.0 I've been using for the past few months, why?

Works as advertised Rated 4 out of 5 stars

However, it could benefit of some improvement. One would be to provide an indication of memory usage (even in the tip as Memory Restart extension does). Second, if it really works only by clearing caches, it could also do Cycle/Garbage collection the samw way as it is done by the buttons on the about:memory page. Since the code for it is in that page, it should be trivial to implement (if it isn't implemented already).

Vidange de la liste Adblock plus Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Je n'ai pas vraiment eu le temps d'évaluer l'efficacité sur le cache, mais j'ai pu constater que ce module vidangeait sans arrêt la liste d'abonnement de l'extension adblock plus : il se réinitialise à chaque démarrage de firefox et il faut se réabonner sans arrêt sinon les pubs réapparaissent en continu.
Seule la désinstallation de Ramback a pu résoudre le problème.
En espérant que ce bug soit corrigé rapidement.

Does absolutely nothing for FF 16 on Opensuse 12.2. Too bad, I could really use it. :(

Absolute, solid, effective

Don't listen to the others, the reason they wrote bad is because when they wrote it, the add-on was in alpha or beta stages.

I recently acquired it at its FULL version, and I'll tell you, this program eliminated ALL leakage for me!

Just install it, and PERIOD, it works like a charm.

FF 16.0
Vista_32-Pro

Thank-U

PS ..

I always extract .xpi = Goto: folder and Change Install.rdf \max version =
to your FF version and save..
Then select all in folder \Send to zip\ copy name and change .zip extension back to .xpi file type.
Drag and drop to blank tab and let firefox do the rest...

Does nothing Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This product did nothing. There is a "clear Caches" in the tools menu but it does nothing, no change occurs. There is still large memory problems with firefox and this does not fix anything.

UI Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Is there a user interface for this extension, or does it keep memory freed up automatically?

Not working with FF 12 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Well,I just installed it,and found it in the disabled section of my extensions,where it is labelled not compatible with FF 12..
Badly in need of an update..

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Using Firefox 12.0 on a Windows XP SP3 machine and RAMBack works exactly how it's intended to and works great for me. I've been testing it for hours now since I first installed it and thrown all kinds of flash and such at it that would add to the plugin-container.exe memory usage, and it handles freeing up that memory perfectly. I think the negative and low ratings are people that simply don't understand how it works, and/or are using it wrong...

+1 for a more recent version. I would be happy to contribute testing.

Please update, its been over 4 years since the last update, does it even work anymore on Firefox 10 or 11 beta?

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Inadequate Description Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Best add-on to clear browser memory cache which is stored in RAM. Misunderstood by many as to its actual working due to inadequate description.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't do anything on my Firefox 6.0 on Linux.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

"does not seem to do anything. it is a bit suspicious how the program should stil be able to do anything when it was never updatet since the initial release in late 2007."

This is spot on.

The only useful addon to free up memory
