nsContentUtils::ComparePosition is a trunk topcrash (#2) but I don't know if
the topcrash is due to this bug.

Getting this one a lot recently (not shure if its related but its a crash @

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.

Ryan, if you can reproduce consistently, can you see if the regression range
for the crash you're seeing is the same as the one Jesse mentioned in comment

I'm experiencing the same problem but having a hard time isolating it.  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.

Adblock Filterset.G Updater
Adblock Plus
CustomizeGoogle 0.50
Deepest Sender 0.7.7
DOM Inspector 1.9a1
Flashblock 1.5.2
IE View Lite 1.2.5
Nightly Tester Tools 1.1
refspoof 0.7.9
Talkback 3.0a1

BTW, it doesn't need to be "test", I originally experienced the error searching
for something else, I'm just using that as my example.

CustomizeGoogle is the culprit.  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").

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.
