There is still a memory leak in 1.4.0 pretty much the same as ticket:

Which is closed already

Example, load a big file in form.htm! and click a few times the memory will only go up as in the screenshot, this will happen in all browsers not only IE is just test on IE with the CollectGarbage method.

The leak is in Request too btw so every ajax request will suffer!

<!DOCTYPE html>

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
    <script type="text/javascript" src="mootools-core-1.4.0-full-compat.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        window.addEvent('domready', function() {                
            var ajaxContent = $('AjaxContent');
            $('loadAjax').addEvent('click', function(e){
                var options = {
                    url: 'form.html',
                    evalScripts: true,
                    update: ajaxContent,
                    onSuccess: function(){
                var xhr = new Request.HTML(options);
                return false;
    <a href="" id="loadAjax">AJAX REQUEST</a>
    <div id="AjaxContent">


Is this a problem with Request.HTML or also with Request?

I believe the ticket said that Request was fine, but Request.HTML was leaking. I haven't verified the ticket, though.


Is there a temporary workaround until 1.4.5 gets rolled out?
