Description Martijn Wargers [:mwargers] (gone per 2016-05-31 :-( ) 2006-01-30 05:35:27 PST
See upcoming testcase, which crashes upon load in current trunk builds.
This looks like a regression, doesn't crash in 2006-01-26 build, but crashes in 2006-01-27 build, very likely a regression from bug 310638.

Not related to bug 288357?
Comment 3 Martijn Wargers [:mwargers] (gone per 2016-05-31 :-( ) 2006-01-30 06:51:09 PST
No, not likely.
Comment 4 Boris Zbarsky [:bz] 2006-01-30 07:56:31 PST
Mats, do you have time to look into this?

Is the issue here that we're failing to tear down the special siblings as you've commented elsewhere?  Note that in general we don't run into it because we reframe the containing block, but in this case there is no containing block...

Yes, this is basically the same thing. We have two pending restyles
in ProcessPendingRestyles() for content that are descendents of a special
sibling (not the first in the chain), so the first restyle would destroy
the first special in the chain but since we don't destroy the following
the second restyle ended up doing a second DeletingFrameSubtree(), now on the
second special sibling that we left around.
In this frame there is a placeholder (the tooltip) that now have a null

Your patch for bug 322678 should fix this bug also.
I'm still a little worried that there are other (potentially bogus) frame
trees that would trigger this crash, so...

wallpaper, just in case...

... so maybe we should take this also, just in case.
(Until bug 323105 removes this function, but that might not land on branches?)
Comment 8 Boris Zbarsky [:bz] 2006-02-08 20:36:42 PST
Fixed by patch in bug 322678.

Mats, I suspect the wallpaper would just delay crashes, not remove them, no?

I think it would actually avoid crashes that is caused by traversing the same
(sub)tree twice. Not that I have any reason to believe that it will occur though.
Comment 10 Boris Zbarsky [:bz] 2006-02-08 21:08:15 PST
Hmm.. If you think that's possible, might be worth taking the patch on branch, I guess.
