[Affected platforms]:

[Steps to reproduce]:

  1. Crash the browser
  • For latest versions:
    Type about:crashparent inside the URL bar
  • For esr:
    a. Go to about:config -> (set it to true)
    b. Open Scratchpad with Shift + F4.
    c. Switch the Environment from Content to Browser.
    d. Paste the following inside the browser console:
    let zero = new ctypes.intptr_t(8);
    let badptr = ctypes.cast(zero, ctypes.PointerType(ctypes.int32_t));
  1. Write any characters (no space) inside the Mozilla Crash Reporter panel until the default width of the panel is crossed

[Expected result]:

  • Once the default width of the panel is reached, the following typing characters are passed on the second row.

[Actual result]:

  • The panel width extent infinite as new characters are continued to be typed.

[Regression range]:

  • I will provide more information asap.

This issue doesn't seem to be a regression, I could reproduce it way back to Fx 31.0a1.

I wasn't able to tag Anca and Anthony to commit push on phabricator. Instead I added gsvelto. You can also review it.

QA Whiteboard: [good first verify]

I can reproduce this issue with Nightly 66.0a1 (2019-01-23) in Arch Linux (x86_64) following STR from comment 0.

I can verify that this issue is no longer reproducible in latest Firefox Beta 67.0b10 (64-bit), width of crash reporter window does not increase anymore.
