Crash Data


(1 file)

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20050928

Steps to reproduce:
1. Load the testcase.
2. Close the tab, close the window, or reload.

Result: Crash [@ DoDeletingFrameSubtree]. TB9854206G.

I think this crash is exploitable.  (I know there is *an* exploitable crash [@
DoDeletingFrameSubtree], but I'm not sure *this* crash is exploitable.)

I can't reproduce this crash on the Gecko 1.8 branch.
Whiteboard: [sg:fix]?
Bug 310520, "Removing <select> with <input> descendant gives 'ASSERTION:
RemovedAsPrimaryFrame called after PreDestroy'", might be related.
This might be a dup of bug 310505.

RemoveMappingsForFrameSubtree() will in some situations be called
with frames that already had there mappings removed - which
eventually leads to a crash DoDeletingFrameSubtree().
This is similar (but not same) as bug 310505 where the placeholder still has
a valid OOF pointer but the OOF have been destroyed.
Bug 310520 probably has the same underlying cause as well.
I will have a look at this after bug 310638, unless someone beats me to it...

Backing out the patch for bug 117984 does fix the testcase here as it does for bug 310505.

Blake - can you take a look?

I guess I should mention that Boris's patch for bug 315752 fixes this (as well as bug 310505 and bug 310520); that's why I added the dependency.
