Description

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.3+) Gecko/20010909
BuildID:    2001090908

The browser is leaking memory when it opens dialog boxes.  In time, after
downloading items that make a dialog popup, system resources will fall and
continue to fall until you are forced to restart your system.  It reached 33% on
my system before I restarted.  My resources where at 83% before running the browser.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Just visit sites that cause the browser diaglog box to open when trying to
download a file.

Actual Results:  The same.


Expected Results:  Expected it to be able to perform these tasks without leaking.
Reporter: Is this still a problem with a more recent build ?
I can create an attachment to generate a modal dialog popup, a modeless dialog
popup, and a regular new window.  From that, anyone with a monitor for systems
resources can confirm or deny this bug.

Reporter:  is it a modal, modeless, or new window which is causing you problems?
Reporter:  per advice on #mozillazine, I'm closing this bug as wfm.  It is a
known problem for Mozilla to consume lots of resources.  For the record, my
system resources are currently 31%, and I'm doing just fine.

Please feel free to reopen this bug if you see additional problems in this
regard.  :)
