--- Bug 344434 comment 13 From Jesse Ruderman 2006-08-28 02:42 PDT --- nsContentUtils::ComparePosition is a trunk topcrash (#2) but I don't know if the topcrash is due to this bug. --- Bug 344434 comment 14 From Ryan Jones 2006-09-02 07:10 PDT --- Getting this one a lot recently (not shure if its related but its a crash @ nsContentUtils::ComparePosition) TB22807231E, TB22807286M, TB22777222Q, TB22777200G, TB22777154E Always seems to happen when you type: the meaning of life, the universe and everything ... into Google for some odd reason.

When I search for "test" in the search box with Google selected as my search engine I crash. When I search for "test" with any other search engine (i.e. Wikipedia) everything works accordingly. When I create a new profile and search for "test" with Google selected everything works too. So it looks like some extension I have installed or something. I am going to try and disable each and test further.

Would this be considered an extension issue, or a Firefox issue? I did not have this problem prior to Gecko/20060906 so it seems like something was changed that caused the extension to start failing. Here is the crash that I isolated as being directly caused by CustomizeGoogle 0.50. Immediately following this crash I disabled CustomizeGoogle, restarted Firefox and attempted the exact same search without error.

Depends. We'd need to see it in a debugger to tell, generally. It sounds like you're seeing a slightly different problem than the originally reported bug here (different steps to reproduce, different regression range). Could you please file a separate bug on it and cc me? In that bug, please provide steps to reproduce starting with a vanilla profile (including detailed steps on installing the CustomizeGoogle extension). Assume that you're asking someone who doesn't normally use Firefox to reproduce (which is in fact the case), so please describe any UI operations involved clearly without assumptions about UI knowledge (e.g. "click in the textbox on the top right of the browser window" rather than "click in the search box"). Thanks!
Does this crash still occur in today's trunk build? Bug 344434 is gone (probably due to the patch in bug 267833) so maybe this one is too.
Is this still an issue? I no longer see it on the topcrash list (looking in Socorro), so removing that keyword.
[@ nsContentUtils::ComparePosition] is the #269 topcrash for Firefox 3.5.6, and it has some interesting correlations, but CustomizeGoogle isn't one of them.
