Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open a page 2.Refresh it 3.Check task manager each time 4.Watch memory usage fly upwards! Actual Results: Memory usage spiraled upwards Expected Results: A refresh of the page without an increase of memory usage FF frequently hangs in such situations.
do you have a specific url where this happens ?
need specifics. if you can reproduce using: * latest version of all plugins (flash, etc), java (1.6_0_13) started in safe mode https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Safe+Mode with beta http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-beta.html then please update the bug. might have just been that beta. for now => incomplete

I seem to have this problem in ff27.0.1 & 28 when rapidly refreshing a large page. also, first refresh consumes a fair chunk. there also seems to be a running 12k/sec memory leak, maybe only when using this bugzilla page. will do some more testing after this comment closed. maybe I can narrow the problem down.
this is in safe mode with new profile.
leak still there when only page is about:blank
does this go into a new bug?
