xmlhttprequest leak?

Oct 02, 2005, 04:12am EDT



Dear LazyWeb,

What’s the correct way to prevent IE from leaking memory in XMLHttpRequest objects? I was able to stop Firefox from leaking by clearing onreadystatechange after I was done. IE doesn’t let me clear the method and setting it to a dummy method doesn’t help. I also tried not using a closure and just using a global callback but it still seems to leak (based on me watching mem usage in task manager).

test with closure

test with global callback

Thanks in advance,

I seem to have this problem as welll - merely creating XmlHttpRequests seems to create memleaks…did you ever find a solution?
