(To access the page above, use "sogo1" for username and password.)

The SOGo mail module enables automatic refreshes of the current mailbox. The interval is user-configurable but defaults to 5 minutes.
When you let the module page open all the night, Firefox leaks so much that it has to be killed and takes 1 minute or so to completely free its process space.

I have checked and rechecked and rechecked what could cause a leak in my code and could not find anything. Every request takes between 0.5 and 2.0Kb of RAM and never gives it back.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
login to the page wait for your instance to consume all your memory


press "refresh" (which call the exact same methods) and see how the memory usage inscreases
Actual Results:  
Memory usage increases
