68 Branch

(Keywords: regression)

If you start a WebAuthn register (or sign) in a debug build, then close the window while stuff is flashing, you get:

WARNING: YOU ARE LEAKING THE WORLD (at least one JSRuntime and everything alive inside it, that is) AT JS_ShutDown TIME.  FIX THIS!

This is also probably a result of bug 1448408, where again the old visibility aborts saved us from having to think through all these states.

JC, are you planning to fix this for 68?

Flags: needinfo?(jjones)

This won't get fixed by CryptoEng for 68; the operation that leaks is rare to run, so the priority is lower than average. We'll get it in 69.

No longer depends on: 1448408
