In advance, I'm sorry to reply so late,

And going to work, I've also tried the upload (https://www.cs.tut.fi/~jkorpela/forms/file.html) with a single file and you can modify without problems as you pointed, but then I remembered the whole process I'm doing. 

I'm using Firefox to open WebSphere Administration Console (yes I know... no comments) to deploy a web application generated by Maven. As you probably already know, the usual maven working procedure it's to clean the folder before compile (and we can understand clean as delete target folder), then I've tried the following steps:

1 Create a temporal folder
2 Create a text file inside the previously created temporal folder
3 Upload text file to testing page (https://www.cs.tut.fi/~jkorpela/forms/file.html) -> OK
4 Try to delete temporal folder -> KO Windows ask for administration privileges to delete
5 If you close Firefox windows let you delete it without administration privileges

Ok, it's due to e10s enabled. Surely an issue with process sandboxing. If you disable e10s in the General options, it works normally to delete/move file or folder.

This happens with the content sandbox disabled, but as you say, it is e10s only.
I'm guessing the issue is in File related Networking code.

It seems the child process is still holding a handle to the file after it's been uploaded.

Yes, ok I can reproduce not being able to delete the folder. The file I can delete. This is an annoying bug since you have to close the browser.

M9 as in blocking? If so, yes it should block, seems a pretty fundamental issue that would users leave and try it with another browser or stop what they were intending to do with their browser/website.

I have tracked this down to the fact that we are leaking the file handle in the child process, as it says in the following comment:
https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/ipc/glue/FileDescriptor.h#154

Ben, do you think we could avoid leaking the handle in this case?
Since FxOS isn't really a concern anymore, do the constraints in bug 827749 still apply?

mozilla::ipc::FileDescriptor as I understand it: if you construct it yourself, it owns the underlying OS handle and will close it; if you receive it from IPC, it doesn't own the handle and you're required to take it and dispose of it yourself.  This is a footgun and I don't really like it, but there's a nontrivial amount of IPC protocol implementation that uses it now (not just B2G) which would need to be changed.

So the easy answer is that something else is misusing the FileDescriptor interface, and it's Not My Problem.  But… that interface is kind of nightmarish for trying understand what happens with nsFileInputStream::Deserialize and its array of file descriptors and all the possible error cases.

So this might justify finally taking the time to clean this up — apparently we can't make FileDescriptor::PlatformHandle take the object by rvalue reference yet, but replacing the method with TakePlatformHandle (clears mHandle, sets a flag for assertions) or similar should hopefully get the point across.  (Callers which want to “borrow” the platform handle, if any, could probably just hold a PlatformHandleType or an NSPR descriptor or something and close it in a destructor, but I haven't audited everything to see how well that would work; there might need to be a BorrowPlatformHandle where the caller is responsible for avoiding use-after-close.)

I'm looking this.

Somehow FileDescriptor will be created in content process multiple times, with the same dup-ed handle/descriptor.

So I can't remote the condition here
https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/ipc/glue/FileDescriptor.cpp#77
or it will crash because of double free same handle.
Flags: needinfo?(wpan)
Please just ignore my previous comment, I didn't read comment 17 thoroughly.

I think the mozilla::ipc::FileDescriptor's copy methods are problematic in content processes.
They shouldn't close the PlatformHandle and then just take a shallow copy.

To fix this, I duplicate the PlatformHandle when it's copying, so that
every mozilla::ipc::FileDescriptor can safely close their own PlatformHandle.

I've tested this on Linux and Windows, at least in this case, no process
holds the file lock right after upload complete.

There is an ongoing job on try server, I hope this won't cause regression.

It busted on all branches, apparently it needs more work.
Now FileDescriptor takes the ownership of the platform handle, in both parent
and content processes.
Copying will duplicate the underlying handle.
It also comes with move constructor to avoid duplicating if possible.

The getter will duplicate a new handle, so it is recommended that use
ScopedPlatformHandle to hold the duplicated handle.

These patches should fix leaks in content processes, but to actually release the file handle, it's needed to close the tab, and wait few seconds for CC.

I *think* this is because we didn't release the nsMIMEInputStream after the form submitted.
However I know nothing about this, :smaug, can we schedule a Runnable to release nsMIMEInputStream at here?

In other words, why would we need to explicitly schedule runnable to release nsMIMEInputStream? Why doesn't that happen automatically inside necko?

I suspect that's a bug. We should probably null out mUploadStream in nsHttpChannel::OnStopRequest() and HttpChannelChild::OnStopRequest()
After the form completed, there are two objects hold the nsMIMEStream, one is HttpChannelChild::mUploadStream, another one is nsSHEntry::mPostData.
So just null out mUploadStream in OnStopRequest() is not enough.

:smaug, is there any chance we can release it from history after POST complete?

Thank you.

I thought this is the problem, but it's not (the root cause).
Those objects also hold nsMIMEInputStream until nsDocShell gone in non-e10s, but the file does not leak.

Because the file is closed by CLOSE_ON_EOF and reopened by REOPEN_ON_REWIND in this case, but there is no way to do this in content processes.
The flags are removed after IPC, even if they are not, the file reading is still happens in parent process, not content processes.

This patch is a hack to nsSHEntry, because it's useless to keep a stream alive in content processes if nobody is reading it.

:valentin, I'm confused, why do we still read it in parent process instead of content processes, even in e10s?
If this needs another refactor, can we just hack it for now?

I thought that the file reading would happen in the content process.
So do we still have a problem because we don't close the file?

So does this fix the handle leak? And does it still POST when you refresh the page?
If so, it doesn't look too hacky (I think there is code that does things that are much worse).
Also, add some comments to nsSHEntry so we don't forget the reasoning behind this change.

Yes, the current flow in e10s is:

1. content request parent to open the file
2. parent opens and keeps the file handle, sends it to content
3. content receives and keeps the handle
4. parent reads the file until the end, closes the file
5. the handle leaked in content

Ah, it fixed the leak but can not re-post by reload.
I've tried to close it in content process but did not go well.
I guess the "reopening" is conflict with content process.
For what it's worth, there's already code for letting a content process hold a by-pathname reference to a file rather than an open descriptor/handle: the DOM File/Blob implementation.

I notice that `Scoped` is marked as deprecated in favor of `UniquePtr`.  See also bug 1255857, which allows `UniquePtr` to use an arbitrary type for the underlying “pointer”.

Thanks for the reminder. I was attempting to use `UniquePtr`, but was struggling on making `PlatformHandle` nullable.

I don't understand why this is needed. If the stream is not needed, we should get it, in the first place.
If there is something wrong, the bug is in how HTMLFormSubmission (or any underlying layer) uses the InputStream.

We still need the RemoteInputStream in content-side, so it can tell the parent process which blob to read.
(https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/ipc/glue/InputStreamUtils.cpp#110)
And only in this case we don't need RemoteInputStream keep open.

I think we will have to do similar thing anyway. (in Blob or InputStream)

Can you ping me on IRC? I would like to understand this issue a bit better. Thanks!
Flags: needinfo?(wpan)
Some notes for future me:

When user clicks upload, child process request parent to show a file picker dialog.
Parent keeps the file id in BlobParent::IDTableEntry, then send back the file entry to child, as BlobChild::RemoteBlobImpl. [1]

Then user clicks submit, child will call mozilla::dom::FSMultipartFormData::AddNameBlobOrNullPair to gather all file inputs.

The function will call mozilla::dom::Blob::GetInternalStream, which will cause RemoteBlobImpl to send an IPC request, that will request parent to open the file, and send the FD back. [2]

Then child will call nsURILoader::OpenURI, sends nsMultiplexInputStream back to parent, let parent do the socket work. [3]

When parent deserialize the RemoteInputStream, it just use the cached File in BlobParent::IDTableEntry (please look [1]), so the FD in child does not matter in IPC.

Because child does not touch the RemoteInputStream (see [3]), the FD which obtained in [2] is useless.
And since we do not explicitly call Close() for the post data, those FD are leaked.


After a short discussion with :baku, we have agreed that the code should not involve changing in DOM, it should keep in network level.

Bug 1264566 - Part 4: Close unused stream in IPC.

Sorry for the delay. I spent a couple of hours today debugging this issue.
We have a serious problem in the shutting down of RemoteInputStream, but I still think this should be handled differently.

Here a question for valentin:

We don't use the inputStreams in HTTPChannelChild (mUploadStream) but we serialize and send them to the parent process. Should we call Close() ? At least when OnStopRequest runs?

It's OK to have a non-used RemoteInputStream opened. But it must be closed "together" with the nsIInputStreams in the parent process.

If part 2 is OK, can we land part 1~3 first?
At least the streams are CC-able after tab closed.

Yes please.
and maybe file a separate bug for this 'close-stream' issue and move patch 4 there.
Thanks! And sorry for the super delay in the review.

Dear Sheriffs:
Please land part 1~3, thanks.

I'd prefer to leave this bug open because the OP's problem has not completely solved yet.

Anyone already on VS2015 Update 3? After this bug was checked in today I get C2833 compile errors but not always in the same file. It seems that after a restart it compiles and goes on until the next error. I already clobbered my build directory. This is a comm-central suite compile but I doubt it matters here. Windows 7 in a virtualbox VM.

Comfirmed that this breaks build on VS2015u3. Replacing PlatformHandleType with FileDescriptor::PlatformHandleType fixes that error.
Thanks Xidorn. Compile is running.

I consulted with :jduell, and we should probably close mUploadStream.
For the child we can probably do that after right after serializing it.

valentin, can the necko team pick up the rest of this work?

Closing the upload stream in OnStopRequest seems to release the handle and get rid of the issue described in comment 0.

This bug is a mess!  The patches except the Attachment #8779905 [details] [diff] has already landed on 50 (now beta).  Why wasn't this bug marked fixed?  It had to be marked fixed/resolved in comment 50, apparently.

Bug 1293628 is dupl of bug 1293765 which just needs an uplift to beta.  I didn't request uplift approvals on that bug because this bug didn't have properly set status flags at all and I didn't know which versions have been affected.

I'm not sure what is the issue in comment 87 being discussed, but it definitely needs a new followup bug.  It's a very bad practice to span a single bug across multiple releases.  There the mess starts.

Closing this bug now, Valentin, if there is any more work needed to happen, please open a new bug(s).
