means there is a security issue and a memory leak caused by the memory allocator unless alex knows what he is doing implementing an untested memory allocator in replace of jemalloc has a large security impact on the browser.
since its untested unlike the jemalloc firefox uses constantly being tested there are going to be huge security holes in the memory allocator he has used in waterfox possible zero days given its Intel Threaded Building Blocks memory allocator has not being tested on a xul runner application for use in a web browser.
why not fix the issue with webgl then use jemalloc its allow safer then implementing an untested memory allocator with a security impact that puts any waterfox user in great risk of losing there personal information or there computers been farmed via remote access.
true is this ? light shed please
