Ticket #7450 (closed bug: duplicate)
jQuery UI is leaking on Internet Explorer 6 (datepicker is leaking)
|Reported by:||E.||Owned by:|
When loading jQuery UI 1.8.13 on Internet Explorer 6, it uses 2MB of Virtual Memory every time a page is loaded (there's no need to actually USE jQuery UI, just load the .js in an HTML page and 2MB are wasted on every load).
Note that this issue does not affect Internet Explorer 8 or Internet Explorer 9 (nor Firefox). Note that this issue does not occur when using jQuery 1.4.2 and jQuery UI 1.8.2 (not sure about versions between 1.8.2 and 1.8.13).
Further investigations showed that the "datepicker" widget is actually leaking (a reduced version of jQuery with this component does not leak).
A very simple test case in HTML would be:
Just load and reload this HTML page a couple of times and IE will grow on used memory... until it breaks out with "out of memory errors"...
