I just checked in bug 473845 which fixed the last persistent leak in browser chrome tests. It also dropped the leak threshold down to zero for those tests, so leakers will be spotted immediately and properly backed out.
This sounds like huge news but I’m not sure. Could you elaborate? How many leaks were there in the past? What amount of leakage were they causing? Does this mean that all JS that runs the chrome UI is free from memory leaks? If that is the case, where are any remaining leaks, if there are any? Are they in the parser engine or something like that?
I would also like to know the answer to pd’s question.
You checked in a BUG. How about a solution?
It simply means that our tests trigger no leaks. Nothing more, nothing less.
