IE 11 throws not enough storage is available to complete this operation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a problem in one of my angularjs applications. That is, it constantly throws the "not enough storage is available to complete this operation" error in IE 11 and in chrome it throws a different error. I thought that there are memory leaks and reviewed the code and found the bug and fixed it. It worked just fine in Chrome. And I can see the memory blocks getting deallocated in chrome. But strangely IE is still throwing the same error.

    There are basically 2 pages (or states) in my application. One that shows list of some entries. The other one is a page which contains the angular ui-grid. The bug reproduction steps are

    1. Go to the first page
    2. Click on one of the entries that opens the grid
    3. Go back to the first page after data is loaded into the grid.

    Continue steps 1 - 3 repeatedly and after 3 times IE throws the error. This is a SPA and all these state transitions are done using angular ui-router.

    I am loading some 60MB of data into the grid using ajax call. The debugger shows the error is while reading the xhr`s responseText.

    Any suggestions?

  • Hi,

    there is (by default) a 10Mb limit for web caches and databases. Tools>Internet Options>General tab, Browsing History section>'Settings' button.

    It may be that the response content length is too large to be displayed/captured by the browsers' degugger. Try with the Dev tool closed and Network capture turned off.

    It is best to test on a production server (and not localhost). If possible please include a reproduction url (or a mashup at jsfiddle) with your questions.
