Only my meddling in simple web development could push one Firefox browser tab to eat up 10Gb and nearly crash my machine with it's humble 16Gb of RAM.

Something tells me Firefox doesn't just garbage collect my mistakes every time I reload my tab where I'm looping over data a dozen times and debugging my mistakes. Probably not the best design choice.

Though, I suppose it's mostly my fault.

@trevdev I've always suspected that something was whacky with the firefox GC. That thing can just eat all of your memory if left unchecked.
