Description

7 years ago
When installing one of the following addons
Firefox shows no information in about:memory?verbose

- about:memory Treemap Visualizer 1.0
  (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/aboutmemory-treemap-visuali/)
- Collusion 0.11
  (https://secure.toolness.com/xpi/collusion.html)
- Recall Monkey 21

Firefox version
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:9.0a1) Gecko/20110922 Firefox/9.0a1
on Windows XP.
Is the about:memory Treemap Visualizer breaking the verbose option?  That seems like the obvious suspect here ...

Confirmed using:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:9.0a1) Gecko/20110922 Firefox/9.0a1

Installing any one (doesn't need to be all three) of the addons in comment 0 causes *verbose* about memory to show up blank. Normal about:memory appears to work fine.

I can confirm this with recall monkey 21 on linux 64 bits

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:9.0a1) Gecko/20110922 Firefox/9.0a1
These are probably extension bugs, esp. the Treemap visualizer.

That add-on is no longer available there.

The add-on source code can be found here.
https://github.com/autonome/Memtreemap

Reading the comment I retested all of the extensions (about:memory Treemap Visualizer was still installed here) and can not reproduce the bug with about:memory?verbose anymore.

So it must have been fixed, even if it was by accident. :-)
