User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:18.0) Gecko/18.0 Firefox/18.0 Build ID: 20120917030530 Steps to reproduce: Browsing various sites on nightly 2012-09-17 build. Actual results: System memory becoming full. Activity monitor showed syslogd taking over 1GB of memory. On checking /var/log/system.log , saw the following in the logs: Sep 18 10:29:45 listsettle-lm [0x0-0x4e04e].org.mozilla.nightly: objc: Object 0x18c7a6380 of class __NSCFData autoreleased with no pool in place - just leaking - break on objc_autoreleaseNoPool() to debug Sep 18 10:29:45 listsettle-lm [0x0-0x4e04e].org.mozilla.nightly: objc: Object 0x18c7a6400 of class __NSCFData autoreleased with no pool in place - just leaking - break on objc_autoreleaseNoPool() to debug There were so many instances of this error that syslogd was not able to cope up and was running 5 minutes behind! I ven't checked it yet with a clean nightly sans plugins. The above is easily reproduced on my host. It happens after 10-15 mins of browsing. Expected results: Memory leak should not happen.
Probably already fixed by the backout https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=507578#c20. Can you please test tomorrows nightly and report back ?
yes, its been working fine since the day after nightly. regards Anshu Prateek

I've hit this bug with v. 18. For me it's tickled when I use a local proxy.pac file. To tickle: System Preferences>Network>Advanced...>Proxies>Automatic Proxy Configuration: file://localhost/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/proxy.pac Firefox>Preferences>Advanced>Network>Settings...>Use system proxy settings As this bug already has a RESOLVED status, I'll start a new ticket.
