Limit RAM usage of Mozilla Firefox

I noticed that Firefox takes a lot of RAM space on my workstation. After googling around, I found a solution on how to limit it's memory consumption.

1. Open Mozilla firefox
2. type about:config in the url/address bar
3. just click i'll be careful i promise
4. filter "browser.cache."
5. change browser.cache.disk.capacity from original value
in my pc it's 1059997.
I changed it to 30000 since my RAM space is 2GB.
6. Choose OK
7. Close and restart Mozilla firefox

(i noticed the memory usage of firefox lowered to a significant level)

Cheers! :=)
