(4 files)

1. Open Nightly with new profile.
2. Wait for OpenH264 plugin to install.
3. Set pref 'media.gmp.plugin.crash' as 'false' (you need to create it)
4. Visit and start a h.264 video call
5. While the call is on, change the pref value to 'true'

Expected result: The crash reporting notification is shown.

Actual result: The crash reporting notification is not always displayed.

1. I reproduced this only on Ubuntu 14.04 32bit, I tried on Ubuntu 13.04 64bit but I was not able to reproduce, same with Windows 7 and Mac OS X 10.9.4.
2. Attached screencast showing the issue.
3. In terminal I get this after crashing:
[6836] WARNING: pipe error (114): Connection reset by peer: file /builds/slave/m-cen-lx-ntly-0000000000000000/build/ipc/chromium/src/chrome/common/, line 452

Georg -- Any ideas?

It's hard to tell anything without spending a little time investigating first.

Note: the screencast also shows selecting "Mode 0"; is this required?

In any case, I'm unable to reproduce on Fedora 19 Debug (mode 0 or not).

Can you try a debug build with NSPR_LOG_MODULES=gmp:5 and set MOZ_IPC_MESSAGE_LOG=1
