hi guys i'm running a simple 'refresh' with ajax and i'm getting a memory grow without understanding why check if i'm wrong or if i'm doing a wrong memory clean

running in firefox and i.e. i get a memory growing running on google chrome don't :/

i'm using jquery 1.6.1 and php script that return a blank page when ?frame=1

the javascript execute a ajax that return a blank page (?frame=1) and sum +1 on a success counter, and +1 on a error counter when sucess/error, after ajax complete (erro/sucess) it resend the ajax request

after +- 10000 requests memory jump from 43 MB to 85MB in firefox (running firefox 5.0.1) at chrome it work with 33-45 and never grow with +- 20000 request chrome continue with 33-45 mb and firefox get 130MB

check the link (it's a ziped file) www.spadim.com.br/bug.jquery.zip

this is the same as Ticket #9715

i couldnt save at jsfiddle but put this code at html and press run:

<script language='javascript'>
var contador=0;var last_contador=0;
var contador_erro=0;
var contador_sucess=0;
var velocidade='';
function tmp_tempo(){
function show_error(){contador_erro++;}
function show_sucess(){contador_sucess++;}
function get_values(){
            type: "GET",
    url:"/echo/blank", // if i could change it to a blank page, could memory leak faster...
            error: show_error,
            success: show_sucess
function show_values(){
    document.getElementById('conta').innerHTML="contador:"+contador+" [erro: "+contador_erro+", sucess: "+contador_sucess+"], velocidade: "+velocidade+"/s";
get_values();    // start loop...
<span id='conta'></span>

on some tablets (android) i execute it on default android webbrowser and it stop browser after some hours (no more memory), ok i don´t know what engine the default browser run, but maybe a variation of webkit webkitgtk or another one, maybe gecko... but let´s focus on firefox,midori,internet explore,safari,google chrome, since i´m using it on desktop for now
