On this forum, above each post on the right, there is a graphic that looks like 
a pair of quotation marks.  

Clicking this graphic will open a new popup window, into which a user can post 
a reply.

If the qouote graphic is clicked a second time, while the first popup is still 
open, mozilla accvios and dies.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. click on the link provided
2. click on the quote graphic above any message
3. click on the quote graphic above any message _without closing the popup 
created in step two_
Actual Results:  
accvio, death.

Expected Results:  
not died.

IE replaces the old popup with a new one.
Alfonso: Can you still reproduce this problem in a recent build? It does not
happen to me using the 20030912 nightly on Win 2000. Perhaps it has been fixed,
or the site changed its code so the problem no longer occurs.
I got this crash in a 09/17 Firebird nightly by clicking "reply" twice at

Ok, I now see this too using the URL Jessee provided. Talkback ID for this
incident was TB23726099X. 20030917 trunk nightly, Win 2000.

A minimal testcase would be great.

Attached file Part 1 of testcase (obsolete) —
This is part 1 of a minimal testcase. At least on my machine, it crashes
Firebird every time I click the link twice without closing the popup between
clicks. Part 2, the source of the popup window, will follow.
Replacing qawanted keyword with testcase. Also, I have reproduced this on WinXP
too, don't know about any other operating systems

This looks like a regression from bug 152844, caused by a race when tearing down
the file control frame.

And this is a duplicate of an existing bug with a patch (I think jkeiser and
mats are working on that one....)
Whiteboard: DUPEME
Well, I'm not really working on that bug...

I have verified that the URL and testcase is fixed by applying the patch
in bug 203041 (to a current CVS tree)
