Another crash with a similar stack signature and trace was fixed a while back,
so perhaps it can provide some clues to what's going on here.  See bug 204935. 
Please update the component if necessary.
Comment 1 User image David :Bienvenu 2004-11-15 13:07:57 PST
Could this have to do with an incompatible extension?
Comment 2 User image Jay Patel [:jay] 2004-11-15 13:17:51 PST
Considering that most user comments mention upgrading from a previous version,
incompatible extensions might be the cause.  I'll keep an eye on the Talkback
data to see if any mention of extensions show up.
Comment 3 User image Scott MacGregor 2004-11-15 14:05:26 PST
i suspect there's nothing we can do here for this subset of users.

this is usually the result of folks that were using version of thunderbird
before we had an extension manager system that disabled extensions when
upgrading. So they have extensions from 0.4, 0.5 that aren't versioned at all
that are still getting loaded and bad things happen. 

Comment 4 User image timeless 2004-11-15 14:09:15 PST
jay: can you contact them? XUL.mfasl might be of interest.
Comment 5 User image Jay Patel [:jay] 2004-11-15 16:02:01 PST
Hmm... just looking at the email addresses of these users, it looks like they're
all from outside the US.  I see .de, .ch and .fr addresses.  Any locale specific
issues that might be causing this crash?

For those that have access to the internal Talkback query tool (Scott), try this:

I'll try contacting a few of them to see if they're willing to post more info in
this bug.

Comment 7 User image Jerzy Konarski 2004-11-16 00:23:41 PST
I used 0.8 version in EN and I instaled the 0.9 version in FR. after instalation
thunderbird dosen't work (crash, bad inerface, ...).
Since I instaled the 0.9 version in EN and this version work good.
Comment 8 User image Adrien Bruneteau 2004-11-16 14:35:31 PST
 I apologize for my english language (I'm french and if somebody in the teams
speaks fluently french, that might help...)

 I was using the zip file installation of thunderbird since the 0.3 and this
time (for the late 0.9) I had taken the windows intaller the first launch was ok
but the second time it crashed showing me a strange view of the application

 I was using extensions
 - Easy get mail button O.2 (I think it already didn't work with the 0.8)
 - Minimize to tray

 I might help you better if you tell me what you're looking for...
Comment 9 User image Jay Patel [:jay] 2004-11-23 16:20:07 PST
I'm guessing this crash has something to do with users installing some localized
version of Thunderbird over an old en-US build in the same location.  Is there
anything we can do to prevent things from breaking or at least avoid the crash?
 It does seem like a bad idea to do a pave over install from en-US to something
else, but a lot of users are doing it anyway... 
Comment 10 User image Jay Patel [:jay] 2005-01-25 16:21:11 PST
This seems to be a topcrasher for Firefox (mostly MacOSX) and Mozilla builds as
well.  All comments mention updating to a recent build (with a few extensions
installed).  This seems to be a general problem with installing over an older
build with extensions that may or may not be outdated.  Updating component to
cover all products.

Comment 12 User image Benjamin Smedberg [:bsmedberg] 2005-01-26 05:27:50 PST
Jay, does this crash still appear? I suspect that bug 278534 would at least get
rid of the bad locale registration issues, although we should probably fix the
core underlying problem here as well.
Comment 13 User image Jay Patel [:jay] 2005-01-26 17:25:20 PST
Benjamin:  Yes, this crash is happening with Trunk builds as recent as
yesterday's.  Let me know when your patch in bug 278534 is approved and checked
in.  I can keep an eye on Talkback data after that to see if it helps crash
numbers go down.
Comment 14 User image Boris Zbarsky [:bz] (still a bit busy) 2005-01-26 23:18:21 PST
So looking at the talkback stack, the only thing I can assume is that it's off
by 2 lines and the script proto is null or bogus.

Jay, is there anything you can do as far as getting me locals here?
Comment 15 User image Jay Patel [:jay] 2005-01-27 12:44:45 PST
Boris:  Talkback is often off by 2 lines, so you're probably right about that. 
I also took a look at detailed reports from Talkback on our internal server and
something is broken...I didn't see any stacks at all and therefore couldn't find
any local var info or param lists (which normally is missing anyway).  Sorry. 
I'll look into the detailed report problem though.

Comment 18 User image Jay Patel [:jay] 2005-03-07 18:01:27 PST
This continues to be a topcrasher and after looking into the detailed Talkback
reports problem, I have not figured out a way to get the local var info. 
Hopefully someone will be able to figure out what is going on here with the data
that we do have:

I have not been able to reproduce this, but if someone else can and knows what
specific info from users will be valuable, I can setup our feedback system to
contact them and ask for more help.

Marking topcrash+ and nominating for Aviary 1.1 to get some traction. 
Reassigning to default owners since this isn't really just a Thunderbird crash.

I don't think, it's gone. This issue occured to me out of sudden after upgrading from Fx 3.0.4 to Fx 3.0.5. Crash Report:
Comment 27 User image Henrik Skupin (:whimboo) [away 02/18 - 02/27] 2008-12-26 04:55:32 PST
That's true. It's back in the topcrasher list as #9 for Firefox 3.0.5. There are about 1550 reported crashes mainly on Windows but also OS X. Even for Firefox 3.1 beta 2 it's listed as #45 with 140 crashes but only on Windows.

Tobias, could you install the 3.0.4 version and try to upgrade again? It would be interesting to see, if it's reproducible.

This issue did only occur on my father's PC (Win XP). I'm now back home and I won't have access to it this year, anymore. Maybe someone else can help?

I've no idea if this is profile related. You could ask your father to let him send his profile to you? So you could check it out? That would be really helpful.

Okay, I now fetched his profile folder and installed Fx. 3.0.4 in a different folder on my system, then imported the profile and updated to 3.0.5. What I have to tell is that it does NOT crash on the Win Vista computer, the update completed successfully - no crash.

If it's helpful, I could attach his profile folder to this bug. But only if it's deleted as soon as you don't need it anymore.

Please don't do that! Attachments cannot be deleted anymore.

I've taken a look at the crash report again and noticed that in frame 2 we are using a nsJARChannel. Do we probably crash while accessing a jar file, e.g trying to fetch the version information of extensions? The following crash report could be a bit more helpful: bp-3bfe1499-e1ed-47f7-bd40-71c9d2081229

This is #18 of top crasher bugs for Fx3.1b2 and #9 for Fx3.0.5 now. Looks like more and more users are affected by this bug.

Tobias, which extensions are your father using?

(In reply to comment #31)
> Tobias, which extensions are your father using?

As far as I can tell from the profile, he's using the following extensions:
ChatZilla 0.9.84
IE Tab 1.5.20081203
MediaPlayer Connectivity 0.9.1
Yahoo! Toolbar
Fasterfox 2.0.0 (made compatible by myself increasing the em:MaxVersion value)
Adblock Plus 1.0
DownThemAll 1.0.4
Deutsches Wörterbuch 1.0.1
Comment 33 User image Robert O'Callahan (:roc) (email my personal email if necessary) 2009-01-08 18:56:31 PST
So it was gone for a few days and then reappeared when we released 3.0.5? So does it happen once when certain people upgrade, perhaps?

Maybe something bad gets in the profile, then they upgrade and crash, then the profile data is fixed at least until the next upgrade?

I hate this bad old bug but I have no idea how to make progress.

Comment 35 User image steffen.zschaler 2009-01-13 02:02:55 PST
I have no idea whether this is helpful, but since everybody seems to be at a bit of a loss, I'll just throw it in: 

Looking at one of the crash reports associated with my original bugreport (Bug 473174), I noticed that it says: Crash Reason	EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION. Now, I may be misinterpreting this of course, but if it means that there was an access violation trying to access some memory location, it may be related to some other issue that has been getting on my nerves occasionally. Among other plugins, I have installed Adobe's Acrobat plugin in what I believe is a pretty recent version. (Not sure how to find out which version it is, about:plugins doesn't seem to show the version number). Sometimes, when I have a PDF open in the browser and then close the browser, I'll get a Windows message box saying that there was an access violation accessing address "0x..." (sorry, haven't got the exact address at hand) and that the memory location could not be "read". Other than that, Firefox will shut down quite normally, though.

As I said, no idea if this is related.
Comment 36 User image steffen.zschaler 2009-01-28 08:40:21 PST
Is any work going on at all regarding this bug? Firefox crashes for the majority of starts on my machine at the moment, regularly forcing me to restart it two to three times before I can work with it. Even so, it will randomly mess with my plugins, in particular NoScript and TabMixPlus. It looks like these plugins are executing, but their UI parts are disabled. For TabMixPlus this mainly means I cannot close tabs any longer. For NoScript, I cannot enable JavaScript for any site, which can get quite annoying. Restarting Firefox will often help, though...
Comment 37 User image Ted Mielczarek [:ted.mielczarek] 2009-01-28 08:47:17 PST
steffen: are you on Windows? If so, are you willing to use a debugger to help track down the cause? Nobody is working on this bug because no developer can reproduce it. If you'd like to try with a debugger, there are docs here:

If you join #developers, someone may be willing to help you through the process.

Steffen, further please test with all add-ons disabled or better in Safe Mode. Does it happen also in this mode? If yes, does a new profile help?
Comment 39 User image steffen.zschaler 2009-03-30 02:12:16 PDT
Sorry, things have been a bit busy at my side, so I haven't actually been able to respond. Yes, I am on Windows. I was willing to do the debugger thing, but as I said, I got swamped. However, strangely enough, for some time now, I have been able to start Firefox without problems. I am currently running 3.0.7 and fearing to update to 3.0.8 lest I get the same problems again.

However, having said that, all is still not well, as some 2 out of 3 times I start Firefox, it will not start correctly some of the plugins I have installed. In particular, I am having problems with NoScript (currently version and TabMixPlus (currently at version 0.3.7pre.080728). The behaviour I observe is as follows:
  - For NoScript, the NoScript icon does not appear in the lower-right corner 
    of the browser window, as it should. However, Javascript and other 
    potentially dangerous contents is still blocked. I just don't get a chance 
    to unblock it if I need to.
  - For TabMixPlus, the easiest way to spot the bug is by looking for the 
    close-tab button. I have configured TabMixPlus to place these on the tab 
    itself, so when there is only one button at the very far right of the tab
    row, I know something has gone wrong. In this case, I will not be able to
    close any newly created tabs, even using the button that is in the wrong
Restarting Firefox often resolves the problem. However, note that the two failures seem not to be coupled. It is possible to have one of the plugins working correctly but not the other one.

Sorry again for the delay in responding,

Steffen, this bug is about the crash and not for any issues with both add-ons. Please talk with the add-on authors for those problems. If you have helpful information regarding the crash please report back. If it will happen again please follow my comment 38. Thanks.

Thanks for the reply. I am aware that this is a bug about the crash, but maybe wasn't sufficiently clear about my reasons for talking about the plugins here.

I mentioned the plugin issue as it seems to be co-located with this bug (see also my comment 36 above). So, I was hoping that this behaviour may give Firefox developers some more insight into this bug. It looks like a race condition to me, and as we all know these can be fiendishly difficult to debug. At least in my experience, any information about weird behaviour that seems to be co-located may be helpful in figuring out the true source of the bug.

Perhaps bug 497875 is related to this bug?

this is going to want some attention in the next couple weeks to determine if this is TB3 needs.  3.0b3 topcrash if the TB crash stats are stable in the next several days.

FF current trunk line# differs by one vs TB based 1.9.1
- FF trunk bp-e027e6c4-eb2e-4089-ac38-c98bb2090720 
- TB 3.x bp-5205ccdf-4961-4c14-8b95-64f712090722

not even in the top 100 for 3.0b3 or 3.0b4pre unless I misread the stats, so not a great concern for thunderbird

Just go this crash today launching Minefield (3 consecutive crashes):

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.3a1pre) Gecko/20090903 Minefield/3.7a1pre ID:20090903045002

I wonder if my crash could have been triggered by bug 514131

The recent cluster of these seems to be confined to the 20090903 nightly build.  I suspect the patch for bug 510844 somehow aggravated this issue.
Comment 50 User image Alfred Kayser 2009-09-08 02:46:42 PDT
Note, for the 5 crashreports mentioned in #48, only one is related to nsJARInputStream, so it is doubtful that bug 510844 is the cause of this.
On 20090903 there a number of other patches committed and backed out because of tinderbox issues.

#98 crash for Thunderbird v3.0.0, so if reporters confirm this is fixed with trunk build and the patch isn't offensive, suggest this is wanted for 3.0.1.

This appears for me in Fx 3.6, but only if NoScript is enabled. When will the wallpaper be brought to the 1.9.2 branch?

What is the scenario to reproduce this bug pre-fix? I see that No Script is involved in once instance but no details.
Comment 60 User image Al Billings [:abillings] 2010-03-22 11:20:27 PDT
QA has nothing to do here to verify this fix.
Comment 61 User image Sebastian Redl 2010-03-25 03:32:03 PDT
I can confirm that my problem is fixed in 3.6.2.
