The account manager dialog appearantly exposes some kind of huge style leak.

To reproduce,open Messenger, then go to Edit->Account Setup - now click around
all the options in the tree alot - this makes pages reload in the IFRAME on the
right.

I'm assigning to ramiro because he said I was going to file a bug against it,
and he knows where the leaks are.
Adding peterl to the CC because he's the style god...and bruce 'cause he's the
leakmaster.

It seems to have something to do with loading content in an IFRAME.
another good test is to go to http://www.mozilla.org/mailnews/purify/ and click
on one of the logs - these are VERY large (4-5Megs) so they take a long time to
load, but they're worth it.
Once loaded, do a search for any function or fraction thereof. the search will
also take a long time, but on Linux the process grows by about 1 meg ever 1-2
seconds during the search...during one search I leaked about 60 Megs!

I believe the style leaks refered to in this bug have been fixed.

Reassign to peterl for marking fixed.

Target Milestone: M15
It is mostly fixed. The huge leaks can't be reproduced with the 2 test cases
described here (the "Account Setup" dialog or the "mailnews/purify" page).
However we still have some small leaks (a few hundred bytes) with some form
controls, especially the drop-down list. I don't know yet whether these leaks
come from the style system or from the widget itself. Anyhow, the bug isn't as
critical as it was.

To reproduce, go to a bug page like this one and click on one of the popup menus.
