Firefox memory leak

Are you getting major memory leaks with the newest firefox? I'm using 1.5.0.2 and from time to time it eats up memory until there is none left. Didn't have this problem with other versions.

I've always had memory leak problems with firefox. But 1.5.0.2 is the worst! Within a few hours firefox explodes up to 150MB of RAM... with only 2 tabs opened and adblock blocking all flash movies.

I keep going back to using MSIE with the latest Yahoo toolbar. Yahoo toolbar now provides tabbed browsing support in MSIE.
