libreJS v7 is now considered to be the current stable release and is a nearly total re-write; so this issue very likely refers to only to the previous version that was obsoleted my mozilla - all further development will be on libreJS v7 so this issue is marked as "wont-fix" for now unless it can be show to pertain also to libreJS v7

as this behavior was seen using libreJS v6, could someone try libreJS v7 on a firefox derivative >= v57 to see if the same issue still exists?

Parsing a whole tree and then passing on to the addon code for analysis is too greedy in terms of memory for very large websites (such as Google Plus.)

Hook librejs code analysis into Narcissus so that the tree does not need to reside in memory at any time.
