[Fixed] CBS image gallery causes leak/bloat with ABP+Chrome

Postby BigBoote66 » Mon Oct 29, 2012 7:50 pm

Adblock Plus v. 1.3 (default configuration)
Chrome 22.0.1229.94 m
Windows XP SP3

Visit this page: http://www.cbsnews.com/2300-504784_162- ... l?tag=page

Every time "Next" is clicked, memory footprint of Chrome grows by 28 MB (!), until "Windows has run out of virtual memory" error message appears. Closing tab in Chrome frees up memory. Bug goes away when Adblock Plus is disabled.

Thanks for reporting!

I can verify this in ABP for Chrome 1.3. The good news is that it seems to have already been fixed in the current development version, so we'll be able to make a fix release soon.

I've investigated this issue some more because I couldn't see what exactly the fix was. Turns out there was none: It doesn't happen with a repackaged version 1.3 either.

Could you to remove ABP and reinstall it from the Chrome Web Store? That fixed the issue for me.

As kbrint figured out, disabling the option "Disable inline text ads" solves the issue.

As discussed here, I've removed the option.
