Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.9) Gecko/20050711 Firefox/1.0.5
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.9) Gecko/20050711 Firefox/1.0.5

Using WRQ's Reflection software (http://www.wrq.com/products/reflection/win/) to
create a file with the extention .r2w to launch Reflection within a webpage ends
up crashing the browser with the following error message:
**************************************************************
Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Buffer overrun detected!

Program: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

A buffer overrun has been detected which has corrupted the program's internal
state. The program cannot safely continue execution and must now be terminated.
************************************************************

Now dragging a .r2w file into the firefox browser normally works fine but I
copied the following dll files into the firefox plugins directory (WRQ states
that this should work with Netscape).

rdocact.dll
rdocenu.dll
nprdoc.dll

The file that seems to be the problem one is "rdocact.dll". If you remove this
one file from the plugins directory it does not crash the browser but the plugin
still does not work.



Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Launch WRQ Reflection for UNIX and OpenVMS
2.Go to File-->Save As and save the session (should have a .r2w extension)
3.Open Firefox and drag the WRQ session file (the one with the .r2w extention)
into the Firefox browser window.

Actual Results:  
The browser crashed with the following error:

**************************************************************
Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Buffer overrun detected!

Program: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

A buffer overrun has been detected which has corrupted the program's internal
state. The program cannot safely continue execution and must now be terminated.
************************************************************

Expected Results:  
Should have created a telnet session within the page.

That's a bug in Reflection, in the rdocact.dll file.

can you attach a sample .r2w to this bug? i'm likely to be able to get someone
to follow simple steps, but asking them to make their own .r2w is excessive

Is this still an issue in Firefox 3.5?

If it is not, we should set the resolution of the bug to WORKSFORME.
