Missing plugin UI is broken
In Windows 8, using Nightly (non-e10s), Aurora, and beta: 1. Uninstall Flash 2. Visit http://www.homestarrunner.com/ AR: See a plain gray box with no next ER: See "A plugin is needed to display this content." This works correctly in release.
This artificial testcase WFM http://benjamin.smedbergs.us/tests/ctptests/missing-solo.html But I can reproduce this on homestarrunner.com I tried to debug this at http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/annotate/58ce6051edf5/browser/modules/PluginContent.jsm#l394 using the builtin browser toolbox. Oddly, we seem to end up skipping over hunks of code for no reason when I step through: Stepping, I get to http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/annotate/58ce6051edf5/browser/modules/PluginContent.jsm#l394 and then the debugger immediately skips to http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/annotate/58ce6051edf5/browser/modules/PluginContent.jsm#l421 In any case, that's the place to keep poking at this.
After talking with jimb a bit, I'm going to try this in a self build to see if the symptoms still show up; but we think this might actually be some kind of JS execution bug. We almost ruled out debugger sourcemap errors because setting interior breakpoints don't hit anything.
I'm tracking 36+ in order to keep this on the radar while we figure out what's going on. Benjamin - Looks like you're working on this. Can we assign this one to you?
I'm not going to commit to this, no. In the grand scheme of things, I'd probably ship with this regression except for the really weird bit about this looking like a JS execution/codegen bug.
A debug local build doesn't reproduce this issue.
A release local build doesn't reproduce either.
Maybe a regression window will help.
Nightly-debug linux doesn't reproduce either.
2014-10-01-03-02-05 nightly doesn't reproduce, so that's at least an early-bound on the bisection.
Nightly range 17-oct to 18-oct: https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/pushloghtml?fromchange=ae1dfa192faf&tochange=92c87e95915e

Ah! It looks like local builds will return false for Services.telemetry.canSend: http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/toolkit/components/telemetry/Telemetry.cpp#2910 That's probably why we can't reproduce this in self-made builds. Thanks Matthias!
If it really is a JS execution problem, then I would be suspicious of bug 987560, the generator changes, in that list. That was a very large change, and it touches code generation.

Yes, it repros locally if I make that return true. The problem is in _recordFlashPluginTelemetry: let state = this._getPluginInfo(plugin).fallbackType; Services.telemetry.getHistogramById('FLASH_PLUGIN_STATES') .add(state); state is null, so add(state) throws "Not a number". Commenting out these lines "fixes" it.
Flags: needinfo?(jdemooij) → needinfo?(ydelendik)
It is safe to add something like: if (state === null) state = Ci.nsIObjectLoadingContent.PLUGIN_UNSUPPORTED; Eventually we will remove flash telemetry code.

Comment on attachment 8560695 [details] [diff] [review] Guard against state==null Review of attachment 8560695 [details] [diff] [review]: ----------------------------------------------------------------- By inspection, this looks good - though I'm not currently in a position to test this. We might want QA to bang the tires on this just to be sure.

How about: >+let state = this._getPluginInfo(plugin).fallbackType || Ci.nsIObjectLoadingContent.PLUGIN_UNSUPPORTED;
Yury, can you fill the uplift request for aurora & beta? Thanks
