Steam leaking memory?

Is anyone else having problems with the latest version of Steam?

Yesterday I noticed my Firefox tabs were getting unloaded and when I checked my memory usage steamwebhelper was using 24GiB of ram at idle.

Today it had 8GiB in use.

Not that I’m aware of, seems to be running normally for me

No problems here, either. I have steam start up on login, so it’s always running. Right now, my system is at 8.7 GB used; steam processes are around 500 MB of this.

Interesting, I started steam about 15 minutes ago and I already have 8 steamwebhelper processes consuming 1.2 GiB. This number continuously rises the longer I have steam open.

I am not seeing this unfortunately. I am at 3Gib with steam open since yesterday no suspend (because I saw your post earlier yesterday) with 5 firefox tabs open one is playing a youtube video.
