Description

I would like transmission to empty the RAM after quitting - like other programs do. It's suboptimal that I have to restart to free the memory. Thanks, Celine.

That is 100% the operating system's responsibility.

But other Apps like Firefox empty the RAM. I always use a lot of windows and tabs and my RAM is getting always full. But when I quit Firefox it frees the memory. So probably Firefox initiates this

This is something the operating system does. When an application quits, the operating system gains control of the memory, and does with it what it wishes. This is outside of our control.

ok i understand, operating system does it. but why for firefox and not for transmission? i am not talking about safari, an apple app, firefox is a third party app like transmission. so there's gotta be a difference. maybe firefox tells the system something different when quitting, like a trigger.

Transmission quits as it should. It is not possible for Transmission to hold onto memory after quitting. File a bug with Apple. Please do not reopen this again.
