Created attachment 278760 [details] testcase ###!!! ASSERTION: overflow list w/o frames: 'mFrames.NotEmpty()', file /Users/jruderman/trunk/mozilla/layout/generic/nsInlineFrame.cpp, line 346 This assertion may or may not be related to the crash. ###!!! ASSERTION: Attempting to allocate excessively large array: 'Error', file nsTArray.cpp, line 68 BuildTextRunsScanner::FlushFrames calls an array's AppendElements method with count = (2^31 - 1). "Excessively large" is an understatement. ###!!! ASSERTION: bad index: 'PRUint32(aIndex) < mState.mLength', file /Users/jruderman/trunk/mozilla/layout/base/../../content/base/src/nsTextFragment.h, line 184 HasTerminalNewline calls nsTextFragment::CharAt(-1) because aFrame->GetContentLength() returns -1. Firefox crashes in nsTextFragment::CharAt trying to dereference 0xffffffff. (I'm guessing this happens immediately after the last assertion.) I don't know how bad dereferencing 0xffffffff is, so I'm filing this bug as security-sensitive.
Flags: blocking1.9? → blocking1.9+
Is that an unrelated regression, or is it the same bug manifesting itself in a new (and less crashy) way?
beats me... but I think it's safe to remove blocking status.
Why do you think that?
because it doesn't crash or assert, and we don't much care about MathML DOM regressions?
Do you have reason to believe that all the ways to trigger this crash are now masked by the NS_ERROR_DOM_HIERARCHY_REQUEST_ERR regression? And that the NS_ERROR_DOM_HIERARCHY_REQUEST_ERR regression won't be fixed?
No and no. But those uncertainties do not justify this being a blocker, IMHO. We should add the test to the new crashtest framework when that's ready, so that it gets tracked.
Oops, the NS_ERROR_DOM_HIERARCHY_REQUEST_ERR is just due to a bug in the testcase: it accidentally calls boom() twice, which results in it trying to append a node to itself. WFM on trunk, Firefox 126.96.36.199, and Firefox 188.8.131.52. Since this was WFM a while ago, I'm making it public now, and I'll check in a crashtest in a minute.
