It appears pretty obvious from the code what's going on - totalClusterCount is not being incremented, so the division in line 1127 divides by 0.

1114 roc+    1.61     PRUint32 totalClusterCount = 0;
1115                  PRUint32 partClusterIndex = 0;
1116                  PRUint32 partClusterCount = 0;
1117                  for (i = result.mLigatureStart; i < result.mLigatureEnd; ++i) {
1118                      if (charGlyphs[i].IsClusterStart()) {
1119                          ++totalClusterCount;
1120                          if (i < aPartStart) {
1121                              ++partClusterIndex;
1122                          } else if (i < aPartEnd) {
1123                              ++partClusterCount;
1124                          }

1125 roc+    1.22         }
1126                  }

1127 roc+    1.61     result.mPartAdvance = ligatureWidth*partClusterIndex/totalClusterCount;

This can happen in two separate situations:

  1) result.mLigatureStart >= result.mLigatureEnd
  2) charGlyphs[i].IsClusterStart() returns null or 0 for all values of i in [ result.mLigatureStart <-> result.mLigatureEnd ]

Since result.mLigatureStart is set to aPartStart, and then decremented; while result.mLigatureEnd is set to aPartStart + 1, and then incremented, the condition (1) appears impossible.

So the IsClusterStart() must return 0 or null for all charGlyphs[].

Probably the same bug as bug 423270, but the stacks are slightly different.
Bug 423270 is blocking1.9+.
Depends on: 423270
Ever confirmed: true
Jim, does this still crash for you now that bug 423270 is fixed?  You can
grab a nightly build containing that patch from
I can confirm that FF 3b5 crashes ( is where I saw it) while "Gecko/2008042207 Minefield/3.0pre" works fine. works for me with
Gecko/2008042106 Minefield/3.0pre.
Probably fixed in bug 423270.
