I wrote application using Mozilla XUL technology. One of the parts of
application is tree with remote datasource. I refreshes datasource with next
code every 5 min:
function refreshlog2() {
  var tree;"UniversalXPConnect");
  tree = document.getElementById("MyTree");
    var datasources = tree.database.GetDataSources();
        var currDS = datasources.getNext();
        var remote =
Every refresh causes growing memory used by MozillaFirebird.exe by 100K-200K
byte, however number of records in the tree still the same and not changed.
Also on the server side I use mod_gzip, so may be problem here.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create simple tree
2.Populate it with remote datasource
3.Refresh it using code above.
4.On the server side I use mod_gzip, not sure about influence of it.
Actual Results:  
growing memory used by MozillaFirebird.exe

Expected Results:  
use same memory amount in case when datasorce have same size
This is not the right place to get help with custom applications.  I'm not sure
what you're doing wrong, but this is for problems with Mozilla Firebird itself.

you might want to try the forums/mailing lists or #mozilla on if you want help tracking this down.

IIRC, you need to trash the contents of the tree first, then refresh the data,
but its been a while since I dealt with this type of issue.

-> INVALID, not a bug found in the Mozilla Firebird product.

Reopening: this bug is valid, but in a wildly incorrect product/component.  This
is a Browser bug in RDF.
