Memory Leak RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, I verified a memory leak while developing Windows Store apps with HTML5/JavaScript. I simply started a new project using the "Grid App" template.

    To reproduce the memory leak create  a new project using the "Grid App" template, run it, alt+tab and then verify the memory it consumes.

    Go back to the application and start navigating forth and back to the main page (clicking an item and quickly hitting back button). After a while the memory keeps increasing and it never gets garbage collected.

    After consuming too much memory the application gets suspended and memory goes down.

    The leak does not happens every time. I can reproduce it 20% of the times.

  • I think it has something to do with debug mode, while running the app normally the memory gets collected.
