That's impossible! On my 64 bit system running 184.108.40.206 it only takes me about 1/2 day of browsing to hit 900 MB. If I forget to kill & restart Firefox every few hours (thank goodness for session saving), my machine goes into deep swap and I have to either wait 20 minutes for the OOM killer to save me or punch the reset button.
And, once it cruises past 600 MB, Firefox gets unbelievably slow. Click on a tab, wait for 1 second of 100% CPU before it responds, stuff like that. I don't know what's different between your 220.127.116.11 and mine, ldo, but I envy you.
I wonder if it has to do with the types of sites one visits.
