This bug will investigate the remaining leak.

Andreas, I'm still seeing the InstallTrigger getter hold an old window alive
with a slightly different path:

        --[InstallTrigger getter]-> 0x7fffcd03bcc0 [JS Object (Proxy)
        --[wrappedObject]-> 0x7fffd21ea4d0 [JS Object (Function)
        --[upvars[0]]-> 0x7fffdebba0d0 [JS Object (Proxy)
        --[proto]-> 0x7fffdaa93340 [JS Object (Proxy) (global=7fffdaa6c0d8)]
        --[wrappedObject]-> 0x7fffd475d108 [JS Object
(XPC_WN_ModsAllowed_NoCall_Proto_JSClass - Window) (global=7fffd475b120)]
        --[parent]-> 0x7fffd475b120 [JS Object (Window) (global=7fffd475b120)]
        --[xpc_GetJSPrivate(obj)]-> 0x7fffe1cb3ac0 [XPCWrappedNative (Window)]
        --[mIdentity]-> 0x7fffd46a5078 [nsGlobalWindow]
This is still InstallTrigger, so its still a regression and a hardblocker. There is a 3rd part to this that is an editor leak which is probably not a regression, so that would be a softblocker. We have to fix this first to tell whats up.
Whiteboard: [hardblocker]
Is there a bug on the editor thing?  Peter and I were talking about it today and have a good idea for what will fix it...

Starting at the object stored in upvars[0]:

(gdb) p (JSObject*)0x7fffdebba0d0
$10 = (JSObject *) 0x7fffdebba0d0
(gdb) call js_DumpObject($)
object 0x7fffdebba0d0
class 0x7ffff7b6e8c0 Proxy
flags: delegate
not native
proto <Proxy object at 0x7fffdebf5d00>
parent <ChromeWindow object at 0x7fffe0734510>

(gdb) x/a $->getProxyHandler()
0x7ffff7b945e0 <_ZN3xpc11XrayWrapperI25JSCrossCompartmentWrapperE9singletonE>:	0x7ffff7a47290 <_ZTVN3xpc11XrayWrapperI25JSCrossCompartmentWrapperEE+16>
(gdb) p $->getProxyPrivate().toObjectOrNull()
$11 = (JSObject *) 0x7fffdebb5068
(gdb) call js_DumpObject($)
object 0x7fffdebb5068
class 0x7ffff7b6ea00 Proxy
flags: delegate
not native
proto <XPC_WN_ModsAllowed_NoCall_Proto_JSClass object at 0x7fffcfc2c370>
parent <Window object at 0x7fffcfc0e9d8>

(gdb) x/a $->getProxyHandler()
0x7ffff7b8ed30 <_ZN18nsOuterWindowProxy9singletonE>:	0x7ffff79c2f90 <_ZTV18nsOuterWindowProxy+16>

So looks like 0x7fffdebba0d0 is a wrapper around an outer window. The proto of the outer window is 0x7fffcfc2c370

If I go up the proto chain for the proxy:

(gdb) p $10->proto
$12 = (JSObject *) 0x7fffdebf5d00
(gdb) x/a $->getProxyHandler()
0x7ffff7b94640 <_ZN3xpc15NoWaiverWrapper9singletonE>:	0x7ffff7a46a30 <_ZTVN3xpc15NoWaiverWrapperE+16>
(gdb) p $->getProxyPrivate().toObjectOrNull()
$13 = (JSObject *) 0x7fffdebb3108

The proto of the wrapper is a wrapper around a different object than the proto of the outer window.

(gdb) call js_DumpObject($)
object 0x7fffdebb3108

I found the issue. I've been hunting for the place where we changed the proto of the window objects, but after a lot of printf debugging and coming up with nothing it hit me that we're actually not doing that, we're transplanting. Turns out that when we transplant same-compartment we don't do anything about cross-compartment wrappers in other compartments. It makes sense, since we really replace the guts of the existing object with a new one and cross-compartment wrappers can keep pointing to the existing object. However, transplanting means that the proto of the object changes (it's part of the guts) so we change the proto to one that's parented to a different object, but the proto of the cross-compartment wrappers aren't updated. Once I added code to go through all cross-comparment wrappers and update their proto to a cross-compartment wrapper of the new proto the leak went away. I'll attach my patch.
Gal, does this make sense?

Excellent find Peter! I think we probably need the same treatment in js_TransplantObjectWithWrapper() (landed just a few days back), no?
peterv, I think the proper fix for this is bug 633382. If you still see this edge, please re-open this bug.
