    This is from a fresh install using the daily .iso of raring. That PC had been running for a few hours. I then just decided to download htop. ff was running for several hours. However, after I reported it, it began to slowly back-off and stabalize.

    If I were not experimenting with htop I would not have noticed.

    23instances of FF X 16.4MB using 3.5.0-17 kernel.

    Definitely appears to be ff problem.

    You're not showing anything out of the ordinary
    The "16.4" is % not MB
    Each PID is not another instance & doesn't represent any add. mem used or reserved
