Suitable for systems with low amounts of memory only.
If, for one reason or another you still experience Firefox memory leaks that seem to affect your web browsing experience, then Firefox Plumber could be the extension you’ve been waiting for.
Although it does not actually solve the issue itself, Firefox Plumber offloads your RAM in favor of the hard drive.
That means if you are running low on memory, you can sacrifice your hard drive lifespan and enjoy the functionality.
While running some tests, PCTechAuthority has concluded that while Firefox Plumber was constantly using 3-4% of the CPU and wearing your HDD, memory usage has dropped from 120 MB to just 1 MB during the Firefox launch.
Alternatively, you can just try different web browser.
