Yes, I'm sure this is fallout from some of the newtab changes I made, so I'll take care of it.

Hm, so this is the same bug as bug 1367024, which as I look through the code, wouldn't have fixed the problem because we hit the getItemViewType first, and if the position was in fact -1, it would have hit the IllegalArgumentException rather than ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException.

I think the problem is still the same as described before (some were-state after notifyDataSetChanged is called but before there's new data), but let's land this crash fix, and investigate later if it manifests itself in the form of missing items or lost clicks.

Bug 1399042: Move NO_POSITION check for IndexOutOfBoundsException in onItemClick.

I wonder if these type of events can happen if a user clicks twice before the UI updates so the first click takes the action and the second hits this error.

Move NO_POSITION check for IndexOutOfBoundsException in onItemClick. r=mcomella
For context, I found a reference to Yigit talking about how you *do* need to check for NO_POSITION in RecyclerView:

(The code is a little different from ours because we use a RecyclerViewClickSupport which redirects all clicks to a single listener, and does the getAdapterPosition call.)
