Hi giuseppe

Concerning the memory usage, FF is known to have some memory leacks, and 
also, the more browser tabs you use the more memory will be used, even if 
you close the tabs. IE shouldnt have that problem.
Maybe should you look out the virtual memory settings of Windows.

concerning cartoweb tabs content, this is most certainly caused by unclosed 
html tags. Safari is especially sensible to that. To debug that the easiest 
is to use the DOMInspector tool that comes with FF 
(menu->tools->DOMInspector) and see whats missing before correcting your 
templates. Also, some html elements imbrications may cause problems (though 
this only appeared in safari and IE, not in FF), like <p> inside <div>, but 
this may also depend of the css rules used for these elements.

concerning the navigation problem, what exactly doesnt work? if its about 
these onclick="javascript:history.back();" and forward elements you added in 
your template, look for javascript error in the browser error log. In all 
cases, your browser's back and forward arrow (in the browser menubar) should 
always work. But even so, it doesnt mean the formular is being reposted 
correctly, so this may be an issue with your browser cache or the server 
apache config. I cant say much without more infos.
