See testcase, which crashes Mozilla within 200ms after load.
It also crashes branch builds, so marking security sensitive for now.

Comment 1 Jesse Ruderman 2007-06-04 10:38:33 PDT
Does the treerow element have to be root for this crash, or does it still crash if you wrap it all in a window?
Comment 2 Jesse Ruderman 2007-06-16 18:03:33 PDT
Bug 384728 has a similar stack trace, but involves <svg:use> instead of mathml and trees.

Proposed fix

We're failing to remove frames here when removing a content node.

I think we probably want this fix on branches too...
Comment 4 Boris Zbarsky [:bz] (still a bit busy) 2007-06-17 17:42:34 PDT
Note that I doubt the mathml matters that much, by the way.
Comment 5 Robert O'Callahan (:roc) (email my personal email if necessary) 2007-06-17 21:53:18 PDT
Wouldn't it be more robust here to check the container's frame type? Or something like that?
Comment 6 Boris Zbarsky [:bz] (still a bit busy) 2007-06-17 22:03:36 PDT
The point is that some of these containers just never have frames...  I guess we could check that too.
Comment 7 Boris Zbarsky [:bz] (still a bit busy) 2007-06-18 21:22:45 PDT
And I'm a little worried about performance impact of GetPrimaryFrameFor() calls in this code if we do serious population of listboxes.
Comment 8 Robert O'Callahan (:roc) (email my personal email if necessary) 2007-06-20 17:06:08 PDT
Given that we'd be getting the same primary frame over and over again, wouldn't that be reasonably fast?
Comment 9 Daniel Veditz [:dveditz] 2007-06-25 10:14:41 PDT
This testcase looks like a null deref in (debug), is this an exploitable situation?
Comment 10 Boris Zbarsky [:bz] (still a bit busy) 2007-06-28 09:58:50 PDT
I'm not sure whether we can tweak the testcase to be exploitable.  It's possible that this is always a null deref... But I can't guarantee that, given the invariants this ends up violating.
Comment 11 Daniel Veditz [:dveditz] 2007-06-28 13:04:28 PDT
On trunk I see the following assertions with this testcase

###!!! ASSERTION: null check on startContent should be sufficient to null check nodeContent as well, since if nodeContent is for the root, startContent (which is before it) must be too: 'nodeContent || !startContent', file c:/dev/fftrunk/mo
zilla/layout/base/nsCounterManager.cpp, line 145
###!!! ASSERTION: The possible descendant is null!: 'aPossibleDescendant', file c:/dev/fftrunk/mozilla/content/base/src/nsContentUtils.cpp, line 1143
Comment 12 Jesse Ruderman 2007-06-28 13:52:03 PDT
Those assertions also fire in bug 385866.

Boris, I like this better ... what do you think? I think this is more clear about what's going on.

Sure.  That works too.

Let's also get this in on the branches.
