It should be noted that when actually using IETab to view IE pages in firefox, even more leaks are reported.

according to IE Tab's homepage at http://ietab.mozdev.org/ the memory leak has been fixed as of version 1.3.* Im not sure if this is true or not, but I thought I should update the bug report to reflect this information
Thanks WildCide.. I've re-examined this problem and so changed the bug description. Things have gotten better, but this still leaks. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52pre) Gecko/2007071603 BonEcho/184.108.40.206pre 1. New profile, start firefox 2. Install IE Tab 220.127.116.1170528 from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/downloads/file/16070/ie_tab-18.104.22.16870528-fx+mz+sm+fl-win.xpi 3. Restart Firefox to complete installation 4. Close firefox and start it back up with leak logging enabled 5. Homepage should be something like http://www.mozilla-europe.org/en/products/firefox/ 6. Notice the new icon at the bottom right of the status bar. Click it to change to the IE rendering engine. 7. Page reloads, rendered by IE. 8. Close firefox, analyse leak log Leaked inner window 2bb4970 (outer 24db988) at address 2bb4970. ... with URI "chrome://ietab/content/reloaded.html?url=http://www.mozilla-europ e.org/en/products/firefox/". Leaked document at address 1c21e58. ... with URI "chrome://ietab/content/reloaded.html?url=http://www.mozilla-europ e.org/en/products/firefox/". ... with URI "jar:file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Ste/Application%20Data/ Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/md8q0qsm.mlktest2/extensions/%7B77b819fa-95ad-4f2c-ac7c -486b356188a9%7D/chrome/ietab.jar!/content/reloaded.html?url=http://www.mozilla- europe.org/en/products/firefox/". Summary: Leaked 1 out of 8 DOM Windows Leaked 1 out of 37 documents Leaked 0 out of 3 docshells If you click the icon three times (So the rendering engine goes: IE, Firefox, IE) and then close and analyse the leak-log, you get: Leaked 2 out of 10 DOM Windows Leaked 2 out of 39 documents Leaked 0 out of 3 docshells So it looks like every time you choose to render a page in firefox using the IE rendering engine, a DOM Window and a Document is leaked. If you right click on a page and choose "View page in ext. app" (IE) then no leak is reported.

Comment 4 also applies to the dev build (IE Tab 126.96.36.19970625)
Is there any evidence that this is Gecko 1.9 / Firefox 3 leaking memory and not something being done in the extension? Until there is, this isn't a blocker.

Can someone help me understand why this is filed under Mozilla's Bugzilla instead of MozDev's? IETab has several Leak bugs open. https://www.mozdev.org/bugs/buglist.cgi?query_format=advanced&short_desc_type=allwordssubstr&short_desc=leak&product=ietab&long_desc_type=allwordssubstr&long_desc=&bug_file_loc_type=allwordssubstr&bug_file_loc=&keywords_type=allwords&keywords=&bug_status=UNCONFIRMED&bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=REOPENED&emailassigned_to1=1&emailtype1=substring&email1=&emailreporter2=1&emailtype2=substring&email2=&bugidtype=include&bug_id=&votes=&chfieldfrom=&chfieldto=Now&chfieldvalue=&cmdtype=doit&order=Reuse+same+sort+as+last+time&field0-0-0=noop&type0-0-0=noop&value0-0-0=
> Can someone help me understand why this is filed under Mozilla's Bugzilla Because it might be a Gecko bug. That said, it's not obvious that it is, as comment 6 pointed out. Someone would need to debug the leak to make sure.
What about Coral IE Tab? Does it leak as well? https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/10909
According to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ie-tab/ it doesn't work with FF4+. There is an IE Tab 2 add-on. I think we can close this bug.
