See testcase.  I think there's just a missing null check in nsHTMLDocument::MatchAnchors, although I'm not sure.

There's also the issue of it and document.links not working, but that's probably not a priority.

It's also crashing the latest 1.8.1 branch build.
Comment 2 Olli Pettay [:smaug] 2007-02-18 14:30:25 PST
A simple null check should fix the crash. That could be taken also 
for the branch, I think.

bug 348156 should fix this on trunk, but here is the null check patch anyway.

For 1.8 the null check is fine, IMO. Similar is used in nsHTMLDocument::MatchLinks. And unless there some other crashes, I wouldn't want
to start clearing all the collection lists. Only mLinks and mAnchors use
nsContentListMatchFunc functions.

Or bug 348156 fixes the bug if ::Destroy stops unbinding elements. Which I think
the latest patch does do.

Add a null check to prevent crash. Should be 
a very safe fix for the branch.

Verified FIXED on branch using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv: Gecko/20071008 Firefox/; I don't get a crash with, just an alert with "undefined" as its value.

Replacing fixed1.8.1.8 keyword with verified1.8.1.8

Assigning to sicking because bug 348156 will fix this on trunk.
Comment 14 Jonas Sicking (:sicking) No longer reading bugmail consistently 2007-11-30 15:53:18 PST
Should be fixed by patch in bug 348156
Comment 15 Stephen Donner [:stephend] 2008-02-05 04:06:01 PST
