Platform version: 34.0
Build Identifier: 20141016001201
Git commit info: 2014-10-15 21:08:45 477a9e61

steps to reproduce:
1. Install on your flame device
2. Change the environment to stage and click Pay
3. Click on 'Create an account'
4. Try to register for a new account by entering email, password and pick your YOB

expected behavior:
Year of Birth dropdown selection works

actual behavior:
Clicking on Year of birth field doesn't show the dropdown making selection impossible

11-05 18:16:19.307 E/GeckoConsole( 1083): Content JS ERROR at app:// in StateManager.prototype._updateActiveState/<: TypeError: is null

NOTE: The dropdown works fine via marketplace but is broken during in-app purchases. I don't think it is an app-specific bug. needinfo'ing Stuart for confirmation.
Flags: needinfo?(scolville)
Yep this is fxa-content-server code I think. Although that looks like platform code that's breaking.

Assigning to and needsinfo'ing ckarlof for input.

I can also repro the STR on a flame/2.1.

Additional notes:

Once this error happens (when clicking the drop-down) the keyboard completely dies.

For clarification, this bug concerns the FxA Web flow on FxOS, not the native FxA flow.
adding qawanted for branch checks, you'll need to use engineering builds and install the app linked in Comment 0.

[Blocking Requested - why for this release]: this is P1 for an impending Marketplace release.

Reassigning to a Gaia component; may not have the right one.

The keyboard initially works within the TrustedUI. It's the switch of focus to the pulldown that causes or reveals the inputContext garbage collection breakage.

Switching to a window request then.
Did not reproduce shallow flashing with 2.0 today.

I was able to reproduce this issue in latest 2.1 Flame. Beginning Regression Window.

Should be a regression from bug 962434

Dropping the priority on this from the FxA point of view since its not blocking our launch of FxA, still a problem for 2.1 though.

Yes, this issue could be reproduced on v2.2.

As a discussion with George, this issue could be fixed if we implement bug 911880, so dupe this one to that bug.

Thanks for the advice, after a sync with Alive and George,
will try to brew a regression fix instead of relying on that refactor work.
