User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:32.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/32.0 Build ID: 2014092000 Steps to reproduce: Went to a website that streams mjpg pictures Actual results: Firefox had a memory leak that filled up 16gb of ram in a minute then locked up Expected results: Should not crash.
Hello, can you please give us a specific page? this would help us to reproduce the problem in detail.
Any page that streams mjpg pictures. Viewing any page created by http://sourceforge.net/projects/mjpg-streamer/ will recreate the crash.
so is there a public testcase somewhere (link)? Or is anybody trying to reproduce expected to use that application you linked to to create a testcase first? Steps to reproduce are still unclear...
It happens on any streaming jpg site, so step one is to set up a page that has that, either from installing the mjpg streamer app or anything else that creates it. The site that I noticed this on Step 2 is to then go to that page and wait for maybe ten minutes depending on the size of the page. Step 3 is to notice that once your ram has been used up by firefox, that your hard drive is now thrashing and your machine is locking up. Then either firefox crashes or the machine completely freezes. Again, this happens in kubuntu and win7 when using firefox. I tested it in chromium, but that doesn't even display the stream at all.
> Went to a website that streams mjpg pictures are not really helpful steps to reproduce, because I have no idea how to find such a website. Please provide a public testcase.
Don't have time to create testcases - if you want a bug to get fixed, please make it as easy as possible for developers by providing a testcase or even a patch to fix it. Otherwise the bug likely will not get fixed.
My isp doesn't allow me to set up servers, so I can't provide a direct link. If you are on ubuntu installing the deb, running the command, and pointing firefox at it would take less than a couple of minutes. If any of you have any idea of how to make an easier testcase, tell me.
