IE8 Memory leak

Reported by: jason@… Owned by: jason@…
Priority: low Milestone: 1.next
Component: global Version: 1.5.2
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


Upon setting our companies website from 1.4.4 to 1.5.2 20-30 employees started complaining within 2-3 hours getting "out of memory error on line ##" only in IE8. As soon as I put the site back to 1.4.4 all the complaints went away.

There isn't any heavy jQuery on the site, but most of these people probably had the site sitting in the background for a while before it happened.

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project! More information is needed to assess your ticket. It would be helpful if you could narrow down the source of the leak you are experiencing or provide a test case on http://jsfiddle.net to ensure it is an issue with jQuery.

We have had similar problems with jQuery 1.5 and IE, so we also downgraded to 1.4.4. A very simple test case is to include jQuery 1.5 in a page that is viewed inside a frame/iframe. Each time the frame is reloaded the memory usage for IE increases with a couple of MBs. Memory is only returned when the entire browser window is reloaded or closed. Changing the jQuery version to 1.4.4 removes the memory issue.

Confirmed that jQuery 1.5.2 is resulting in an "out of memory" error on the HP t5510 thin client running WinCE .NET 4.2 and IE6. Reverting to jQuery 1.4.4 seems to solve the problem - thanks.
