Steps to reproduce:

We are sending jpeg-streams over websocket to our Website, Sadly I cannot provide any source code or test-system for reproducing, but I found a similar bug (Bug 1280916) which seems to be the same issue, also I will attach some memory reports from about:memory. If the time distance they were created is to short for comparison, I will create new reports.

Actual results:

With e10s activated our memory is constantly increasing, with e10s deactivated the memory usage is stable.

Expected results:

The memory usage, using FireFox with e10s, should be stable.

Hi, sorry for the delay. Do you think it's possible for you to provide a testcase?
I know that firefox has a memory leak (and we are working on it) when websockets are used in workers in non-e10s. Maybe this is connected.

Hi, I am also sorry for the delay, I will communicate this with my team leader and message you if I have more information.

I have the ok to provide an test-system for you, but it will take some days to set everything up.
I have created a virtual machine in azure with our software installed. If its possible I would provide the login data to this machine privately to an responsible official.
Moving to p3 because no activity for at least 1 year(s).
