This bug is for crash report bp-a6870e9f-ee46-4bd0-817c-aa4810200107.

Seen while looking at nightly crash stats: So far macOS crashes only.

Possible regression range based on build id:

If I am correct in the component, there are a few bugs that landed in that changeset.

Yoric, maybe this is a regression from some of your work on improving process launching? Thanks.

Very likely, yes. Preparing a patch.

Hi Cristian, Luca suggests here to uplift this bug to 73 - agree?

Flags: needinfo?(cbrindusan)

I think maybe you meant :jcristau or :RyanVm :)

Flags: needinfo?(cbrindusan) → needinfo?(ryanvm)

Oh, sorry. Yes, thanks.

We haven't seen any crash reports with this signature from Beta73. Do we think this bug is likely to bite us when 73 goes to release?

Flags: needinfo?(ryanvm) → needinfo?(jstutte)

I was just the messenger bringing in Luca's comment - Luca?

Flags: needinfo?(jstutte) → needinfo?(lgreco)

I think that it would be reasonable to ask David's opinions on this, and so I'm redirecting the needinfo to him.

(from my point of view, given the kind of issue fixed and where it is applied, ContentParent::GetNewOrUsedBrowserProcessAsync, it seems like it may start to bite us at some point and so I think it would be reasonable to fix it before it gets to release).

Flags: needinfo?(lgreco) → needinfo?(dteller)

Sorry for the slow response, I'm sick. There is a chance that the bug might bite us in 73, so I'd be in favor of uplifting.

Flags: needinfo?(dteller) → needinfo?(ryanvm)

You can nominate it if you want, we'll just need a clear assessment of risk vs. reward since we're just over a week away from 73 going to RC.

Hum. I don't think I ever nominated something for uplift. How do I do that?

Hey David, per our conversation on matrix last week we may be OK on 73; did you get a chance to double check?
