Crash with evil testcase, using table-column-group, table-column, table-cell
See upcoming testcase, which crashes Mozilla on load. Talkback ID: TB16137409Q HaveAutoWidth (Talbkack has become really short, lately) The testcase also crashes Mozilla1.7.12, so no (recent) regression.
Arrgh, the stack is bogus even in a debug build. This is certainly exploitable, at least writing to 0x0000002 seems like exploitable to me. We have a major error in the colgroup pseudo handling which yields a strange frame hierarchy cell - inner cell - cell. I need some time to come up with a fix. More than this I would like to move this bug after the OrderRowGroup removal which leads to the deleted object derefs. Martijn congratulations to your CVS privilege :-) , so its fair to assume that you have a build. If you find these bugs so quick you need to learn to classify them. The bogus talkback should have warned you.

The bogus talkback should have warned you. Well, I asked Boris some time ago, and he explicitly said not to file bugs as security sensitive (something with way too much security bugs already). I don't really know when a crash is exploitable. (normally, I don't fire up my debug build, maybe I should do that from now on with new crashes)
No, I am not asking to file every bug as security sensitive. But this bug causes already random function calls, it's not the typical already deleted stuff that I am used to. Launching a crash testcase in a debug build sounds like a good idea anyway, the stacktrace is more reliable than the talkback.
The only question that this patch causes is why did I not close the door in bug 239294. Fear Uncertainty Doubt? Or did I not know Martijn at this time? Or did I try a minimal invasive patch?
this is the next rev. still not *the* fix but closer to the issue.

this regressed the testcase in bug 325984
Is this exploitable? On a 126.96.36.199 windows debug build I crash in the nsMargin constructor reading from (0+offset) because mReflowState is null when nsBlockReflowState::BorderPadding() is called (the offset is the location of mComputedBorderPadding). Maybe some of these are uninitialized objects whose values would be non-null in a non-debug build, but in a debug Firefox 188.8.131.52 build this is pretty consistent. If you think it's exploitable we need a patch for the 1.8 and 1.8.0 branches. If it's not exploitable we can live with this low frequency crash (and should un-hide the bug).
Whiteboard: [sg:critical? nse?] null-deref? mem corruption?
Never mind: this fixes bug 330015 which is definitely operating on a deleted frame, so we do need it on the old branches.
Whiteboard: [sg:critical? nse?] null-deref? mem corruption? → [sg:critical?] mem corruption
