Fireshot 0.77 to cause 'memory leaks' in FireFox with Google Maps (3.0.10)

Hi all

I'm experiencing problems with the latest update of FireShot (v0.77). I'm working on a website with a lot of Google Map data. After two or three clicks around the website, the page does not render at all (although HTML code is downloaded from the server and processed normally).
FireShot draw my attention being the 'bad guy' because of an update yesterday. When I disable FireShot everything works as it should.

I think it has something to do with caching, because when pressing ctrl + F5 the page renders nicely, for 1 time.

Issue on both Windows XP and Windows Vista, running FireShot 0.77 on FireFox 3.0.10.

I don't think FireShot is a cause. Because it starts working only when you perform captures.

If you restart Firefox and never use FireShot since startup, it cannot affect the browser's performance.

I guess you're right. At first it worked with FireShot turned off. FireBug seemed to be the real troublemaker.

So, no memory leak due to FireShot :) I'm quite happy about that, since I enjoy using FireShote quite a bit :)

Thanks for the quick reply.

Yes, FireBug might be a reason.
BTW, you can switch it off for specific sites, so the problem can be solved gently.
