Robin Cornelius commented on SNOW-318:

for the search tab this is caused at LLFloaterDirectory::onClose(bool app_quitting) it just hides the floater, if you change this to a delete(sInstance) it kills the floater and removes the plugin instances.

I guess this was intended behaviour, what is not intended is for those idle plugins to be wasting cpu time

>             Project: 6. Second Life Snowglobe - SNOW
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Performance 
>    Affects Versions: Snowglobe 1.2
>         Environment: Snowglobe 1.2.0 (2924) Oct 20 2009 09:11:10 (Snowglobe Test Build)
> Linux (32 bit Debian Unstable)
>            Reporter: Thickbrick Sleaford
>            Priority: Low
>             Fix For: Snowglobe 1.3
>         Attachments: Webkit plugins dont die.png
> It looks like some instances of the web_browser XUI element (qtwebkit plugin) are not unloaded (e.g. search, showcase) while other are unloaded as soon as the floater containing them is closed (avatar profile Web tab.)
> There's no danager or runaway memory consumption, but it still seems wasteful - each instance still uses around 20MB and some CPU time.
