Loading the testcase crashes Firefox.

Filing as security-sensitive because I don't know what would happen if I set it to something other than null, but controlled by content.
Attached file testcase
Completely different stack trace from windows on debug, cx->fp->pc is 0xCCCCCCCC (uninitialized memory). On an opt build this could potentially grab values from recently freed memory filled by an attacker. Memory would have to be filled with values that were addresses that pointed to something that made sense as JS opcodes, exploitation might be difficult.

Hit a JS assert in, but still looking like JS frame corruption of some kind. 
Assertion failure: JS_UPTRDIFF(fp->sp, fp->spbase) <= depthdiff, at c:/dev/ff15/mozilla/js/src/jsinterp.c:386

On trunk this WFM on windows. Mac only crash? Fixed along the way?

WFM Mac trunk debug.  Should the Windows issue become a separate bug report?
I still see this on Linux, but branches only, not trunk. I've got a trivial fix for the crash I'm seeing (same stack as the mac stack trace in this bug).
Attached patch Add null check.Splinter Review
In the case I'm seeing the crash, the target is a document, not something that successfully QIs to nsIContent.

Add null check.

Is this a branch crash only? The event listener should always be a XUL element, so why is the target of the event a document?

Add null check.

Since this is branch-only it's less important that the fix is the RightThing(tm). But it'd be good to know that things work as they should on trunk.
