Firefox crashes on a thread doing LZ4 compression in unoptimized debug build


(Toolkit :: Startup and Profile System, defect)

Not set





(Reporter: TYLin, Unassigned)


I notice in my Linux environment, Firefox unoptimized debug build starts to crash after opening for about a minutes. Remove the objdir and rebuild doesn't fix the issue.

rr call stack shows the following.

Thread 5 received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

My mozconfig contains the following: (I guess the --disable-optimize is the key, otherwise it should have been detected by our CI.)

ac_add_options --enable-debug
ac_add_options --disable-optimize

I can reproduce a quicker crash by change the number 60000 to 1000 in,756

I disabled optimize in my debug for accurate information in rr and gdb, so this may affect other people's day to day work.

This may related to bug 1550108. Doug, could you take a look?

Flags: needinfo?(dothayer)

That is a very strange stack. I'll try to reproduce on my end, but in the mean time could you print the disassembly of LZ4_streamHC_t_alignment?

I don't know why it's calling memset on 0x40040 bytes of the stack just to compute the offset of a member of a struct - I assume for some kind of instrumented sanity check. But in any case, this looks like it's just a dupe of bug 1550108.

Do you mean to dup this over bug 1587107? I just apply, and it does help.

Woops! Yes.
