This jumped/started after bug 1353542 landed: https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/7970ea0858614c4de33e32fb59738ddc9c3efc23 Florian, please take a look.
Looks like this is failing only on Linux (but pretty frequently there), so I assume bug 1353542 just exposed an existing issue in the test. Forwarding the needinfo to ursula who reviewed this test, to decide if we she wants to debug it, or would prefer that we just disable it for Linux.
Flags: needinfo?(florian) → needinfo?(usarracini)
I say disable it, PreviewProvider was a module created for a project that is now dead, and the code isn't being used anywhere anymore. There are related bugs open right now to remove all the dead code for that project, so in the near future PreviewProvider.js won't exist anyways and the associated test will go away too.
Thanks much for the discussion here. I'll disable this today.

geoff: seems this is now back on windows, can you take a look or do we also need to disable on windows ?
Based on comment 7, I'd say we should disable on Windows right away. Would you mind? (I'm away for a few more days.)
