See parts of bug 823989 and bug 824016 - with testpilot enabled, we have leaks in browser-chrome devtools tests; fixing those blocks reenabling testpilot on aurora.
With the two web console tests disabled we are seeing failures and leaks in several other devtools, which was most-surprising to me. The problem doesn't seem to be isolated to the tests we disabled in bug 824016.

CC'ing other members in our team as well.

Who's taking ownership of this investigation? Re-enabling test pilot on Aurora is blocked on bug 832702.

Not sure here. The new toolbox and the web console show no memory leaks in all the runs we've had without testpilot. Who owns testpilot? Can we get him/her to check the situation? When was testpilot last updated?
Test Pilot is me, sadly.  I am trying to clear resources and see what the plan is / should be for fixing this.
Taking this, attempting to repro on my Mac.  Other advice welcome.

I am completely blocked on fixing this, and fumbling around pretty blindly.

This bug affects lots of downstream research for labs, ux, SUMO, privacy and others.
