Reduced test case of various samples

The sample test cause has four different links:

1) link - JS window created with original movie source from page
2) link - Instead of JS window , movie loads in a browser window via target
3) link - JS window created like the first link except it's using a different
movie source
4) link JS window created like the first and third link. The difference is it
uses HTML to insert the movie.

The crash only occurs for me with link 1 and 3. They both insert a raw QT movie
(No html) in a JS created window.

This appears to be a Mac OS X issue since I can't reproduce under OS 9.1 or
Windows ME.

If feel this is a serious issue since it happens with a popular site. Accessing
the QT plugin setting from the QT plugin is pretty common.

Comment 5

taking....but I don't think it's that common. The crash only happens when going
to prefrences via the context menu in a quicktime movie while it's in full-page
mode being displayed by a javascript popup only on OS X.

I guess it's subjective on how common it is. Users will use it as a shortcut to
the QT preference settings. I would like to see this fixed...

This bug is on the list of Mac bugs identified as significant enough to merit
fixing for MachV - adding nsbeta1 keyword.

And I can confirm the crash still occurs for me with the 098 build but the stack
trace is somewhat different:

I can reproduce by clicking on a disabled menu item. Debugger isn't being too
friendly, trying printf's

patch v.1

It looked like the cause of the crash was some erroneous events being passed to
us from the widget. This patch takes a more defensive approach to passing
events to the plugin by ensure the event was really meant for our plugin's
widget. Please review.
so my question is why are we getting bad widgets passed to the plugin code?
seems like that's the right fix in addition to making the plugin more robust.

Comment 14

17 years ago
I think the plugin is getting it because it's the "lastWidgetHit" in
|nsMacEventHandler::HandleMouseMoveEvent|. The widget in the event isn't the
widget that's created for the full-page plugin, but it does look like a valid
one in the debugger. Looking in |nsWindow::DispatchWindowEvent|,
this->mEventCallback doesn't match mEventCallback of the event's widget either.
The plugin-side fix seemed safest to me.
Keywords: patch, review
Not that I'm against additional validation checks, but it seems to me that, if I
understand correctly, the plugin code is not really at fault here... fixing the
plug-in may leave other crashers lying around.

Do I understand correctly, that you suspect |lastWidgetHit| represents the
plug-in... even though it is not the most recently "hit" object (which I expect
would now be the context menu instead...)? If that's the case, shouldn't
|lastWidgetHit| be pointing to the context menu, or the new window, or whatever
is now really frontmost, or nothing at all if that's more appropriate?

cc'ing saari for some mac event insight...

reduce the urgency on this bug: the scenario is this --

you have to be on OSX, it has to be a js pop-up window with a full-page QT and 
you must select a disabled menu item on the pop-up. Enabled items do not crash.

patch v.1

I'm sticking by this patch. I think it's the right fix for this bug. It kinda
makes sense that the plugin's widget would get the event if it happened in a
native widget created by the plugin like the context menu. Where else is the
event supposed to go? We have no widget to corespond with the native context
menu. Our nearest thing is the plugin's widget which gets the event. I'm
willing to leave this bug open or open or open a new one and check-in this
band-aid to stop the crash.
