This is not unusual.  everybody seems to be implying that firefox is
being evil by doing this.

I certainly wasn't trying to imply evilness on anyone's part. Err, mad
props to Moz, X.org, and LTSP developers. ;-)

With the browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewers setting, Firefox is
also somewhat aggressively storing the rendered version of recently
viewed pages, tuned by total RAM of the host. Effectively, it's
trading RAM for CPU time. It's not just pixmaps for tabs and browser
windows.
