Description DB Cooper 2011-12-07 12:18:31 PST
Using the "select element to hide" tool in adblock plus (w/ element hiding helper installed as well) creates a zombie compartment. e.g.

Navigate to a blog entry ( ), and select the adblock plus menu item "select element to hide" then hit the ESC key to exit that task, and close the tab. A zombie compartment should appear in about:memory.

adblock plus version: 2.0b.3308
Element Hiding Helper: 1.1.3a.343

> Fixed in AdBlock Plus it seems

This is a different issue (I am not using the context menu), and I am using a later version of ABP which includes that patch.
