Compose new email never releases memory
Is there a known "memory leakage" or "failure to release memory" problem with the Zimbra Web Client? (I could find no bugzilla report.)
I have noticed that using either IE or FF under Windows XP, I see tremendous growth in browser memory consumption while using the Zimbra Web Client.
If I log out of Zimbra and close its tab, only a fraction of its used memory is released.
As I compose new emails in a separate window, large chunks of memory, varying from 3-5MB in FF and up to 15MB in IE are consumed by each new email, but when I cancel, close, or complete the email composition, only a small fraction of the memory is released, if any at all. After several hours of composing email, FF or IE memory usage has grown to hundreds of megabytes.
What can I do about this?
Zimbra uncontrolled memory consumption
I have confirmed that Zimbra ALSO fails to release memory when using IE7. It is clear to me that this is NOT a Firefox problem. Memory consumption will grow to hundreds of megabytes.
