Woo Hoo! lol. Like I saying earlier...I always thought there was a leak after doing that because that is what I always do when I upgrade, i leave firefox going for about an hour afterwards and then firefox becomes very unreponsive.

Yes it will, there just seems to be a temp problem with the server (down).

I get this https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=323234
Was that what you were doing when you got the crash?


I was just doing random things, though off hand... it seemed to be logging into page with javascript/flash, generally in website ads and so forth.

... and another for today: TB13950287W

Added a comment to that bug...

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20060114 Firefox/1.6a1 ID:2006011405

1. New profile, start firefox with leak logging
2. Middle click on the BBC News RSS bookmark
3. Many tabs should now be loading.
4. Wait until the first tab you're on loads, then close firefox (whilst the other tabs are still loading)

This doesn't generate a leak all the time, but sometimes it does.
Leaked outer window 298b3a8 at address 298b3a8.
Leaked outer window 29aa0a0 at address 29aa0a0.
Leaked inner window 20f0d50 (outer 29aa0a0) at address 20f0d50.
... with URI "http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/4612838.stm".
Leaked inner window 2ec5140 (outer 298b3a8) at address 2ec5140.
... with URI "http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/4612802.stm".
Summary:
Leaked 4 out of 68 DOM Windows
Leaked 0 out of 60 documents
Leaked 0 out of 30 docshells

Worth filing? I suspect the leak only happens when tabs are destroyed when closing firefox, providing the tab is doing something specific at the time. Having 20 tabs open & loading whilst closing firefox probably makes the bug more obvious, but I can't get any more specific than that.

I guess that leakage when firefox is closing isn't too important anyway, since the whole app is being unloaded. But of course if the leakage is because of closing a tab at a specific time, then that can occur during normal browsing.

Also, blimey, much leakage when choosing to customize the toolbar.
1. New profile, run firefox with logging
2. Right click on toolbar > customize
3. Close customization pallet
4. Close firefox.
Leaked 4 out of 10 DOM Windows
Leaked 22 out of 30 documents
Leaked 0 out of 4 docshells

edit > this is #296474[Firefox:Toolbars]-Memory leak when customizing toolbars [Lin]

I see from yesterday that adding a new bookmark is also leaking, #168411[Firefox:Bookmarks]-Move bookmarks transactions into a JS service (adding a bookmark leaks the Add Bookmark dialog) [All]. Maybe it should also be noted that adding a seperator, or moving a bookmark (drag&drop in the bookmark manager) also leaks.

I filed a bug for that and someone else that can debug this can figure out if its related.

That's probably the same bug as the adding/removing bookmark memory leak. Got something to do with transaction managment or something like that.

These leaks are all well and good, but I can't help thinking they're rather footling and can't be responsible for the excessive memory usage some users experience. After all, who spends their time customizing toolbars or bookmarking stuff? After spending an hour or so trying to get firefox to leak with a virgin profile, i'm finding it pretty hard to discover any leakage; perhaps certain extensions (or combinations of extensions) are very leaky.

I also wonder the users who get firefox using 100s MB of memory are experiencing one huge leak every so often, or a small leak that occurs very frequently. BTW, whilst using the leak-gauge.pl script is there any way to estimate the amount of memory leaked? I just don't want to spend an hour finding a leak only to discover it's 8 bytes every time the user holds CTRL and SHIFT and double-clicks on a javascript link when the option window is open or something.
