Yes, I noticed this myself trying it out last night. :-(

Well, the bad news is that it seems to be something that piggy-bank does
to firefox, not some internal problems.

The good news is that if we fix it, we don't have to wait until
everybody moves to deerpark.

I'll make finding this leak my first priority next week (I already have
an idea of where that might be... and I finally managed to build firefox
from source on my machine (boy that thing is *huge*!) so I'll get myself
dirty with C++, IDL and friends would the need emerge.)

Anyway, don't expect anything this weekend, I'm in LA and enjoying the
sunny-yet-dry-therefore-pleasent california's weather :-)
