[Vista] glitches in live streams caused by lazily-open-shared-handle
Affected OS`s: - Windows Vista only Affected Builds: - Firefox 37beta7 - Latest Nightly STR: 1. Start Firefox 2. Open a live stream (I reproduced on http://www.twitch.tv/ and http://www.douyutv.com/) Here is a list of streams: http://www.joindota.com/en/livestreams/ or https://new.livestream.com/watch Expected results: Stream runs without glitches Actual results: Lots of glitches can be seen during the stream Notes: 1. This is a regression. I was unable to get central or inbound regression but I did manage to get a range through tinderbox beta builds: First good - https://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-beta/rev/89cfa8ff9fc5 First bad - https://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-beta/rev/7d4016a05dd3 Pushlog: https://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-beta/pushloghtml?fromchange=89cfa8ff9fc5&tochange=7d4016a05dd3

[Tracking Requested - why for this release]: Issue is Vista only, but is a regression and bad user experience on some popular websites.
I think that Video/Audio is a better place to start but this may also be a gfx issue. This is not YouTube so it's not MSE.
Component: Layout → Video/Audio
So I don't lose the comment, on irc Jeff said this was probably introduced by bug 1128170 or bug 1127925.
Can you try the build here to see if it reproduces? That should narrow things down between between those bugs: https://firstname.lastname@example.org
Tracking until we know better.

Based on comment 7 this is caused by bug 1127925. ni? to mattwoodrow as a heads-up. Not sure if he has cycles to look into this right now though.
Summary: [Vista] glitches in live streams → [Vista] glitches in live streams caused by lazily-open-shared-handle
Bogdan, are the streams using flash or the video tag?
(In reply to Jeff Muizelaar [:jrmuizel] from comment #9) > Bogdan, are the streams using flash or the video tag? Yes
(In reply to Jeff Muizelaar [:jrmuizel] from comment #11) > Which one? http://www.twitch.tv/, http://www.douyutv.com/ and https://new.livestream.com/watch - require Flash. I did not encountered any live stream that did not requested Flash in order to work.

Comment on attachment 8582647 [details] [diff] [review] Hold a ref to the right texture Approval Request Comment [Feature/regressing bug #]: bug 1046550 and bug 1127925 [User impact if declined]: Video flickering, seems to happen mainly on vista (but should be able to happen on 7/8 too). [Describe test coverage new/current, TreeHerder]: Nothing yet. [Risks and why]: Very low risk, obvious typo. [String/UUID change made/needed]: None. This was initially broken by bug 1046550, though it's racy and apparently very rare. Bug 1127925 increased the window where it could happen which made it show up more.
Comment on attachment 8582647 [details] [diff] [review] Hold a ref to the right texture Great simple fix for a very visible bug. Release- as we're not going to take this fix in 36. Beta+ Aurora+

I retested on Firefox 37.0 RC and latest Aurora 38.0a2 under Windows Vista 64-bit and the glitches are gone.
I see this patch only landed on release, aurora, and beta but not central. Are there plans to land this on master? Thanks!
Yes, but inbound seems to be closed every time I try.
