From Bugzilla Helper:

We have an monitoring application which keeps refreshing an html page generated
dinamically. If I keep that page open, mozilla will allocate memory in a way
that after 2 days of continous running I get this output at top (memory sorted):

I created an snapshot of our monitoring sistem at:
http://cioby.ines.ro/mozleak/leak.html

The particular thing about this page is that is full of tables...

Hope that helps

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load the provided url
2. Let it be...
3. Memory usage increases

Actual Results:  Mozilla keeps eating memory :)

Expected Results:  Not increase memory usage.

Also mozilla slows to almost a crawl when manipulating this page but that's
another issue.
