12-12-09; 1.0 MB RAM; XP Home, Firefox 3.5.1.
Just added Ramback, memory usage dropped from 76,change, to 44,change.
Back up to 66,change, after registering to leave this review but still a net 10,000 improvement. And loading is noticeably faster, even with that small of an improvement.
P.S. Anyone know any other tweaks to speed loading? Seems like the longer I delay re-installing, which is a pain, the slower Firefox gets.
It has no apparent effect on reserved memory or performance, not at least in 3.5.
Works great, button available when personnalizing menu bar not shortkey apparently
It works, gained 2 Megabytes after clicking the button that I didn't saw before :)
I didn't notice any difference except the "Clear Caches" submenu under Tools. I didn't notice any difference with memory consumption (using Linux).
Would be nice to have a shortkey and/or a button too :)
no update since 2007?!
Finally my lost ram is returning back. This add-on should be added to the next firefox release.
Firefox is still using 500 MB of memory with the add-on installed. Doesn't seem to be working.
kills application http://www.rememberthemilk.com/
this tool seems like one of its kind but it didn't work for me. application seems to be dead.
Doesn't seem to work. After looking at the addon's code, it's possible that it's even outdated.
Hoping for a fix or update.
This may be pilot error on my part, but I install RamBack, restart FF, add tool bar button (blue, red, green stacked bars icon), and nothing. Button does not work and 'options' grayed out on RamBack in add-ons...
With four tabs open, FF is using 143K. I close three tabs (leaving this one open) and memory goes to 127K. Not bad, but is it RamBack doing it or FF?

Awesome. Removes my only (major) issue with Firefox. Great work!
I used ramback in 3.5.1 and actually ended up using about 50k more memory when I cleared the cache. Clearly I was doing better when I didn't have this extension installed.
I hope this can be fixed. The idea of it is good.
Ok with Fx 3.5 and a dozen add-ons
RAM use of firefox was constantly increasing before install. Now it is lowering when closing tabs, which seems soooooooo normal.

I was using "RAMbooster" to manage RAM, which is great as well, but RAMback is much more efficient.
great! thxn man, very useful for PC's with 256 ram or less.
Belive it or not, this actually works!!
please update this wonderful add-on...
AWESOME!!! Just that it WORKS!!!
- A pat to those who are lazy enough to minimize Fx and check the beauty of the add-on.
- Needs a little more exposure... thats y 4... or else... i'd give it a BIG 5...
Plug-in does nothing to free up memory as claimed. I'm using FF version 3.0.10 with XP as can see no difference with or without plug-in enabled.
1.0 crashes Minefield/3.6a1pre ID:20090423030711. http://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/9292b577-9cba-4001-b7c4-567a02090423 occurs when clicking "Clear Caches"
still no difference in RAM usage with/without this addon ... :-((
MinimizeToTray works when option is activated... it clears ram usage when minimized ;-)
It doesn't work for Firefox 3.0.8
I still have to restart firefox to retrieve memory, but i rated it 4 because If it worked it would be great.
but I would give 5 if it wasn't manual and freed memory on each tab close, because the cache data growth has a direct relation to to the content of each tab.
