crash loading preview
I was surfing, so I'm not sure what URL I had loaded or what URL I was about to load. But I got a crash blowing my stack, with thousands of these calling down recursively: nsDocumentOpenInfo::OnStartRequest(nsDocumentOpenInfo * const 0x0d5c4b40, nsIChannel * 0x0c92b7a0, nsISupports * 0x00000000) line 254 + 34 bytes I think I clicked on a bookmark in my sidebar while another page was still loading, if that makes any difference. Will try to narrow down how this happened.
sorry, should have said: debug build on WinNT, bits from 10:30 am this morning.
eureka! the problem is simply loading this url: http://channel.web.aol.com/preview.cdf This is from the "Imported IE Favorites" folder in my bookmarks. It doesn't matter how you load it, from bookmarks, typing it into url bar, etc.
Summary: crash switching documents → crash loading preview.cdf channel
My build isn't done yet. I wonder what kind of content type is associated with cdf?
When I try this link in navigator I get an unknown file type */* alert. When I paste the URL in the addressbar of ie and hit enter it prompts me to add a "AOL Preview Channel" to the ie sidebar. if I accept it then loads http://channel.web.aol.com/channel2/index.html in the content area.
No crash using the 2000-04-09-08-M15 nightly binary on WinNT; loading preview.cdf behaves the same as NN 4.x, with an Unknown File Type Dialog for type */*; saving or cancelling work fine. IIRC, .cdf is for the MS-proprietary Channel Definition Format. This is not the only bug recently having to do with crashes with unknown content types: see bug 29360, "Crash after Unknown Type dialog comes up.", FIXED just post-M14.
This sure does look like a DUP of bug 29858, "File type of */* crashes Mozilla.", FIXED -- identical URL and problem. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 29858 ***
