this content crash signature (related to printing) is jumping up in firefox 80.0b - most of the crashing urls point towards some printing specific pages from various indian government domains, but nothing that would be publicly reproducible

Any chance we can get this crash on the radar to be addressed in 81 alongside the other printing crashes?

Priority: -- → P1
Whiteboard: [print2020_v81]

The crash report URLs/comments may indicate this is happening during printing, but there's nothing in the stack that would otherwise have led me to think that. It's not obvious to me how this relates to printing.

jwatt: Could this be a result of bug 1652270?

I don't think so. Apart from anything else it wasn't until 10 days after that bug landed that the increases in crashes starts to become noticable.

It looks like the GetDOMEventTarget() call in nsDocShellTreeOwner::AddChromeListeners isn't finding a target, and then we [crash trying to call GetOrCreateListenerManager on it](

I don't know enought about this code to know whether failing to find a target indicates something bad, or if this could be expected and we just need to add a null check.

Smaug, could you maybe shed some light on that?

Flags: needinfo?(jwatt) → needinfo?(bugs)

I guess the relevant tab(?) is being closed when event listeners are trying to be added. Does some new printing code keep a http channel open for too long, even after the tab has been closed? Or has some progress listener alive longer?

Could this be from ?

This happens under the window.print() callstack, so I'd say is not too likely. The others one don't seem particularly related to printing...

Some other recentish changes like sound like they could've introduced this... Those channels didn't end up notifying before dying before that patch, so maybe that's what increased the volume.

I think bailing out if the tab is being unloaded makes sense anyhow...

Tentative fix (though crash is long-standing), so no test :/

Assignee: nobody → emilio

Without a repro, adding a null-check seems a decent-ish way to avoid crashing...
