Does anyone know how to stop Safari content from consuming total Memory?
i get error messages that there is no more free memory even when Safari isn’t being over used.
For example, I was working a USA crossword puzzle and watching Activity Monitor. Safari Content just ate up all 8 GBs of memory within a few minutes. When I dumped the puzzle, Memory Used dropped to 3.35 GB.
No large apps such as Office are open.
I’ve tried using Safari in similar ways including trying to download ONE small Youtube file, but the same thing happens.
I’m using Safari Version 7.0.5 (9537.77.4) with Mavericks 10.9.4 on a late 2009 27-inch iMac.
The only thing that’s open now with Safari is AI which is using 92.2 MB. Safari itself - using 149.2 MB - is the first item in Activity Monitor with nothing else but AI open. It’s not climbing now, but as soon as I connect to another web site, Memory Usage starts rising until it’s all used up.
Any suggestions as to how to combat the problem?
Please don’t attack me if I haven’t stated this correctly. I need help, not criticism.
