Jorge, do we have a contact point for Stevie Smith, the developer of QuickDrag?

I can confirm the leak occurs and a reference is kept for the document where the drag originated from. Doing a second drag with different documents just replace the zombie compartment, so it isn't a cumulative problem.

The developer has been informed through AMO.

Ever confirmed: true
Summary: Leaky add-on: QuickDrag → QuickDrag add-on creates successive zombie compartments
The add-on has been downgraded to preliminary review. Since this is a single compartment leak, no further action is required unless the developer wants the add-on to be fully public again.
