Summary0002664: In-progress curl fetches which are active during shutdown of the browser will never be freed
DescriptionWhen we close the browser while there are in-progress fetches in cURL, we never
complete those fetches cleanly and so they leak all over the shop. This manifests often in lwc string leakage from the nsurls they hold refs to.

I'm not sure we care particularly.
Steps To ReproduceStart a fetch of something which takes a while, then close the browser window while it's fetching.

I noticed it while fetching https://httpstat.us/302 where if you close the browser the moment it renders, there's a couple of fetches outstanding.
TagsNo tags attached.

this is also seen if one simply stops the fetch rather than quits the browser
