That's not the classic firefox memory leak, it was a specific bug with a specific extension and specific websites.

I know because apart from the bugzilla ticket, the issue disappeared as soon as I stopped using that addon with buzzfeed open.

Also because I regularly have hundreds of tabs open for weeks at a time.

There won't be a clash per se, you just can't use gsync on a freesync screen, so it won't adaptively change refresh rates.

Do the laws define what a mobile phone is?

Because cars are mobile too right.

You have internet?

MSY have a website and email.

All you need is someone to pick it up for you - or just order it when you're closer to coming home and presumable prices go down.

Thanks to an interesting bug with firefox an extension I found the other month, I actually did have a scenario where my PC ran like shit because firefox would fill up all available RAM, and then fill up all available virtual memory, and only then do a garbage collection round that freed up SFA.

But it didn't make the computer freeze and hang and that's it. It just killed the runaway process - firefox.

I can't imagine that a system with virtual memory set to dynamic, and a full drive so it can never really create a swap file, might do some odd things. But probably not what the warning on the site says.
