- current m-c, debug, win10
- e10s OFF!
- load an offline cached page
- ctrl-shift-del
- delete offline data
- reload the page twice to cache it again
- close firefox
=> crash

Cause: CC frees the nsHttpChannel of the document which also tears down the associated nsApplicationCache object.  It tries to post nsOfflineCacheDiscardCache event to the cache IO thread, but that is already dead by that time.  The code crashes on dereference of nsCacheService::gService, but just adding a null check doesn't help here.  The cache tries to write something, apparently important, to the sqlite database, that has already been closed.  CC collects stuff long after all the shutdown notifications, I don't see a simple way of reordering here.

This will be very hard to fix.  I have no idea what is the regression range here.  Our appcache tests (still running with e10s off, AFAIK) didn't catch this.  Only channel not having e10s on right now is release.  A bit too late to discover these issues..

Notes: I can't reproduce this crash on any channel (an official release build) with e10s off.  Still, this prevents me from fixing and verifying bug 1286735.
