This bug was filed from the Socorro interface and is 
report bp-f31ef803-8e2c-4d95-9081-8412f2150907.
Reproducible with latest 43.0a1 (from 2015-09-07) *only* with e10s enabled
Affected platforms: 2 machines with Windows 7 x64, Windows 10 x64 - build 10532, Ubuntu 14.04 x32

Steps to reproduce:
1. Launch Firefox and navigate to
2. Click on Video or Audio&Video button.
3. Share devices when prompted.
4. Close Firefox.

Additional notes:
1. With the same STR on latest Developer Edition the process remains active & the global indicator visible, but no crash. Same as with latest Nightly, it does not reproduce with e10s disabled. Should I file a separate bug for this issue? Or is it enough to track it here? 
2. Unable to reproduce on Mac OS X 10.10.4.
3. More reports:

I can reproduce this, but only in release mode, which is why I didn't see it during development (the STR must have been run thousands of times...)

The fix for bug 1202617 doesn't seem to fix this (or maybe even causes it?)

The stack involves RecvReleaseCaptureDevice and that actually takes a different path on Mac.
This stack looked weird at first but now it's starting to make some sense. The reason why ~CamerasParent is in the same stack as RecvReleaseCaptureDevice is because of the:

  nsRefPtr<CamerasParent> self(this)

inside RecvReleaseCaptureDevice which held the CamerasParent alive past actual shutdown until this runnable was executed. Once it's executed, we clean up the CamerasParent ref. This can't happen on Mac because it does the ReleaseCaptureDevice synchronously.

The crash is inside:

#0  0x00007fffe92862bd in mozilla::camera::PCamerasParent::DestroySharedMemory (this=<optimized out>, shmem=...)
    at /home/morbo/hg/mozilla-inbound/objdir-desktop/ipc/ipdl/PCamerasParent.cpp:338
338         return (mManager)->DestroySharedMemory(shmem);

Maybe mManager has already been cleared here?

Not immediately obvious how to fix this. It's guess that postponing the CamerasParent destruction until past whenever its manager derefs it means all IPC related things are going to blow up badly.

Maybe I can modify BackgroundParentImpl::DeallocPCamerasParent to set a flag indicating IPC is gone? But do we have to care the Shmem was never properly deallocated? If so that has to go at that point (manager derefs), and not in the CamerasParent destructor.

Blake, do you agree with this analysis? What do you think is the most proper fix?

This confirms mManager has been freed by the time we run:

This looks right to me. I think you've also found the right way to deal with this: when the IPC connection closes, call an IPCCleanup function that frees the shmem and sets a member mIPCOpen to false and then check that before doing anything IPC related off of the event loop.

Sorry for not catching this in the original review.

That appears to be a MediaDecoder issue (the function name is very generic).  Please file a new bug in Audio/Video: Playback
