I happened to notice this while investigating another leak. I went to Google Maps to get directions, it popped up the little dialogue asking if I wanted to let Google Maps know my location, I clicked yes. It found my location, showed a route, and I closed the tab. Some time later, while using the about:cc addon, I noticed that the Google Maps document was still alive (along with its compartment). Somehow the document is being kept alive by the nsIDOMGeoPositionOptions. 0x12a3e9000 [rc=6] nsDocument normal (xhtml) http://maps.google.com/maps (etc) Roots: 1 0x132fa0f90 [rc=2] root nsXPCWrappedJS (nsIDOMGeoPositionOptions) 0x124cb5800 [rc=6] nsDocument normal (xhtml) http://maps.google.com/maps (etc) Roots: 1 0x132fa0f90 [rc=2] root nsXPCWrappedJS (nsIDOMGeoPositionOptions)
I had suspicions that the doorhanger was to blame in bug 731875 but I never got around to investigating it.
