Package: iceweasel
Version: 6.0-4
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

iceweasel (6.0) just eats almost all my 2 Gb of ram. i have tried the
previous 5.0, and everything works as expected (i mean, about ~400 Mb of
used ram, while 6.0 uses about 1.5 Gb and mora than 500 Mb of swap)

i'm attaching a screenshot of htop, and iceweasel with just 3 tabs (and no
flash running)

there it shows iceweasel's ram use: 1.3 Gb **without** buffers/cache,
and over 2.5 gb counting that, too much.

oh. i'm using some addons. but i'm using them too on iceweasel 5.0, and
it just don't use all my ram.
