Re: Is There a Memory Leak when NVDA Works with FireFox?

Bhavya shah

Dear all,

This issue has been documented on NVDA's GitHub tracker also and there
are a couple related tickets whose links I am happy to share if
somebody is interested. I have experienced this issue on two laptops
(I don't use Desktops), both with Intel processors (I don't have a
machine with an AMD processor to test), as recently as with the latest
NVDA and Firefox versions. It is a frequently reoccurring bug that is
rather disruptive, and I hope its cause can be identified and a
resolution be reached soon.

It only ever happened with very specific websites.

And, to answer another question: I think I experienced this on an AMD
years ago, but I so rarely use desktops that I can't be sure that was
the issue. I have run into it on three laptops that I can think of.
