comment The Stack Overflow Unofficial Patch (SOUP)
@NathanTuggy: That's actually very helpful, and I can see what's going wrong now. (SOUP isn't expecting anyone to call MarkdownConverter.makeHtml() in the background, especially not with intentionally mangled Markdown like Dude, where's my cursor does.) I'll list the incompatibility as a known bug for now, and will take a closer look later to see if I can somehow fix it.

@NathanTuggy: Alas, I still can't reproduce this myself. :( I do get the warning if I delete one or both of the opening dashes from the comment (which is appropriate, since it's not a valid comment without the dashes) and wait a few seconds for the popup to trigger, but it goes away (like it's supposed to) if I put the dashes back. To investigate further, could you check if you get any error messages with the prefix mso300679 hook: logged in your browser's developer console when this happens? Also, do you by any chance have any other user scripts installed that might be interfering here?

comment The Stack Overflow Unofficial Patch (SOUP)
@NathanTuggy: That's not supposed to happen, as long as the comments are correctly formatted (i.e. <!-- some text here -->). Can you show me a test case where that fails (like a post that gives the warning when edited, or some Markdown I can paste into the editor to trigger it)?

@JeffMercado: I tried to reproduce this issue, but after leaving half a dozen SE tabs pinned overnight and using about:memory to compare things before and after, I'm not seeing any obvious leakage. (In fact, the memory usage dropped by 60 MB or so overnight, presumably because Firefox ran a GC pass at some point.) Looking at your original report above, could you tell me what kind of pages you have pinned (front page / question page / chat? or just give URLs)? Also, you say you have them "refreshing every 15 minutes (5 for SO)"; how are you doing that? With an extension?

@JeffMercado: Thanks! I'll try to run some tests myself, although I probably won't have time to do it for a few days at least.

@angussidney: It's already removed from the devel branch. If I don't have time to make a whole new stable release this weekend, I'll backport the removal to the stable branch.

@JeffMercado: Thanks for the notice, I'll try to look into it. If you have time, is there any chance you could test how the memory usage behaves with GM on but SOUP disabled?
