Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 64626
Konqueror memory leak when browsing web
Last modified: 2008-01-17 12:49:41 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.0.0; Linux)
Description of problem:
Browsing the web with konqueror results in steadily increasing memory usage. It starts (according to top) at about 20MB including shared mem, but steadily climbs with each page browse. When it reaches 50MB I kill the konqueror process. Just about any substantial URL will cause this problem, including Foxnews and the WSJ Online.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Just browse the web for any length of time
Actual Results: Browser memory footprint climbs continuously.
Expected Results: Memory footprint should stabilize somewhere.
Using KDE 3.0 RPMs for Red Hat as linked to from http://www.kde.org, installed on Red Hat 7.2 with the latest updates.
This bug is reported against old release of Red Hat Linux or Fedora Core
that is no longer supported. Chances are that it has been already fixed in
newer Fedora Core release. If you still experience the problem with
current release of Fedora Core, please update the Version field (you may
need to switch Product to Fedora Core first) in the bug report and put it
back to NEW state.
Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at
Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do
want to make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks.
If this issue is still present in a current Fedora Core release, please
open a new bug with the relevant information.
Closing as CANTFIX.
