      Description

      Hi,

      I have matrix jobs with 29 profil as Axis. After a first run the job page of this matrix job shows the big matrix configuration with all the possibilty of run. If we let the browser open on this page even without any run we can experience massiv leak memory.
      In order to reproduce:
      Run the config.xml job attach to this issue. Refresh the page in order to see the matrix scheme with all the possibility and obsever the memory use of the browser.
      You can find in attachment the memory use immediately after refresh and after only 1 minute open page wuthout any autorefresh.

      It consume over 1.5G in 5 minutes and so one. With an open tab some PC freeze because of the memory overuse.

      This issue happens on client side and not on server, it seems related to javascript issue. 

      Thanks for your investigation and help

          I have this issue on Firefox also (not so much on Chrome, and apparently almost none at all on IE - all on the same PC).  For me, simply leaving the "Stage View" open results in extreme memory use.  If there are a 'fair' number of rows (over 10) it happens much faster (the more rows, the faster if grows).  The number of columns (stages) does not SEEM to have as much of an effect, but I am making an assumption or two here.

          Overnight, we can have Firefox (on W7) taking over 12GB of memory in the tab with the Stage View alone.  Using firefox 69.0, 64-bit, W7 on the client end, Linux Mint is running our Jenkins server.  The Linux Firefox also leaks, but I don't use it for this, so can't quantify or guarantee that its as broken.

           

          (I'm being forced to use IE on Windows to view my jobs, which I find unacceptable.  Please, someone fix this!)
