We're developing a website using asp.net and JQuery v.1.11.3.
It has frameset and frames (althought it is unsupported in HTML5). Our
target clients use IE8.
We encountered memory leak in IE8 everytime a page is being
rendered by the frame element. I have also read several articles which
states that there are memory leaks when using frames in IE8.
So how do I confirm it as a bug? Well first I tried our website on
other browsers such as Chrome and Firefox and it seems that memory
leak doesn't exists. And then I get back to IE8 and downgrading
the JQuery version step by step, I started at 1.11.3, 1.11.2, 1.11.1
and then I stopped at 1.11.0, this is the most current version that
the memory leak doesn't exists.
I haven't bump yet into any articles that has the same problem
that I encountered, hope you can shed a light regarding this.
It's a lot to review, but I think you could rule out most of
the changes. If you see anything that was taken out that seems like it
might cause a leak, put it back in the 1.11.1 version and see if it helps.
Hi Dave, sorry I cannot point out how big the leak is, I only notice it
during the unit testing of our website while browsing using IE8 and
JQuery 1.11.3 to 1.11.1. When I view the task manager, it's
obviously not releasing the memory so I assumed it might be a memory
leak. I tried downgrading to 1.11.0 and the memory in task manager rises
and fall unlike the more latest version.
I just posted here to report the bug, please do inform me if
I'm posting in the wrong topic.
Thank you very much!
