Add cycle collector button to about:memory
Now that Bug 625302 has landed, it should be possible to add a "CC" button to about memory that runs the cycle collector without (necessarily) running the GC. This is mostly a fiddly option that won't matter much, but it could be handy. Another thing to consider would be to add a button to do a CC that does a heap dump, as outlined here: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Performance:Leak_Tools#Cycle_collector_heap_dump I don't know if I am totally comfortable with a button that you click that dumps out a file, but the capability is already there to some extent.
Oh, and this could replace the GC+CC button that currently exists.

Oops, forgot to update the description and remove the comment about why we don't have a pure CC button.
