I stuck with earlier 2.49.X until sites stopped working. I tried 2.53.8 and it broke most of my addons that I depend on. I was able to fall back to 2.49.5 without losing anything in the Profile.

I generally have 3 browser windows open with 20 or more tabs in each. That allows me to switch sites with ease. In the earlier 2.49.x, memory usage would ramp up slowly and I'd have to close the browser and restart every 2-3 days. Upon startup, memory commit (KB) as shown in Windows Resource Monitor would be around 420,000 ramping up gradually to around 1,800,000 after about 2 days. Sometimes higher or lower depending on usage.

After installing 2.49.5, those numbers start out around 480,000 and quickly escalate into the 2,000,000 range within a day or so. I have not changed browsing habits or sites visited. I'm currently over 2,500,000 in less than 24 hours.

I know you don't like when we use older versions, but unless I can find a newer version that supports the older addons, I'll be stuck here for as long as it works.

But why the increase in memory commit?

Moving to SeaMonkey Support as version 2.49.5 is not a pre-release build.

Unsupported might not be the correct term. It would, however, be fair to say that because there will be far fewer users of obsolete versions, you may not find many who can evaluate your experience in their own installation of the program.

Could be something to do with the rollback from 2.53.x to your 2.49.x version. Might need to create a new profile, install your addons to the new profile and transfer your bookmarks and history. Never a good idea to jump forward so many versions and then roll back like that.

And, you claim to have rolled back to 2.49.5, yet your user agent is indicating 2.53.8:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 SeaMonkey/2.53.8 Lightning/5.4

Manually overridden. If I take it out, some sites don't load at all. I don't know how to get it to show the real configuration.

Such as?
Lightning/5.4

I'm pretty sure that has a tendency to cause issues, so I would remove that part.
(There might have been a GUI pref for that in earlier SeaMonkey, & maybe isn't even there in current, perhaps ?)
Fire 750, bring back 250.
