I'm not getting any memory leaks, just some warnings about jmps and movs based on uninitialised values.

Non-leaking valgrind output.

If you can reproduce this with the latest version of Firefox, please re-open this bug report. Otherwise, I'll consider this invalid (see attachment).

You've used the latest version, but what about the profile?
Do you see these leaks also in safe-mode, or starting with a pristine profile?
Do you have extensions installed?
Could you also re-run valgrind with the -v option in addition to the other options you were using?

Resolution: INVALID → ---
Is this still happening on the current trunk or 3.0 beta builds?
