Crash Data

This bug was filed from the Socorro interface and is 
report bp-a41ef1fd-5edf-4eef-83ea-020ea2160603.

These crashes with signature mozalloc_abort | NS_DebugBreak | mozilla::ipc::FatalError | mozilla::plugins::PPluginSurfaceChild::Write are quite common, and are now showing up as a result of infobar crash submission (bug 1269998).

They're *mostly* (but appparently not entirely, maybe the metadata are wrong!?) crashes in the plugin process, and the plugin is Flash in all but one case.

Who should own these?

AFAICT we're trying to send a delete message for a PluginSurfaceChild on a channel that has already experienced an error. We probably shouldn't do that.

Owners would be myself or benjamin.

bug 1268559 may help here.
Assuming that these all have PPluginModuleChild::OnChannelError farther up the stack, this particular crash is very low priority. We've already detected a channel error and should just be aborting the child process without doing any of this work which happens to crash.

This is the #1 topcrash on aurora 49 with 733 crashes in the last week, 8.3% of aurora crashes. So I am a bit worried about the volume we are seeing in crash-stats.
369 crashes in the last week across all channels - - 197 on Aurora and 189 on Nightly. So we are definitely not seeing quite the volume we were back in June.
Hi :bsmedberg,
There are still some crashes in 49.0b1 but the volume is low, do you think we can have someone to help on this?
Flags: needinfo?(benjamin)
No. That's why I marked it P5 in the first place.
Flags: needinfo?(benjamin)
Mark this as fix-optional for 49 as this is low priority.
It doesn't look like 50 is affected, no crashes reported recently.
Closing because no crash reported since 12 weeks.
