Load test page: http://digital-one.fi/realplayer.html
Press the reload button.

On Mac OS X, the page is reloaded, but the playing doesn't restart. It keeps playing all the time. Sometimes the area becomes black.
On Linux and Solaris, the page is reloaded, the plugin area is grey. Realplayer is crashed. Reload the page again, it will recover.

I think it's the same cause of delay stopping plugin.

Seems to be an improvement to me on Linux and MacOSX.

I still crash the RealPlayer on Linux at http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/
when closing the popup window.  STR:
1. load http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/
2. click a "Listen to ..." link
3. select RealPlayer, click OK
4. listen for a while (works), then close the popup window
 ==> SEGV in realplay.bin
5. File->Quit
 ==> SEGV in Firefox

Without the patch Firefox does not crash in 5.

I think the patch is the way to go though, also on Linux,
but please file a followup bug on the issue above.

(I tested with RealPlayer v11 on Linux and MacOSX)

Is this still an issue? I suspect this was fixed in a different bug, whose number I don't have handy unfortunately... Please re-request review if this still needs fixing.

You meant Bug 485125 ?
No, it didn't fix this problem.

Without this patch, I'm having crashes of realplayer on reloading a page with Real plugin, I'm also having crashes of realplayer on exit Firefox sometimes.
Note: Firefox doesn't crash, and this bug is on all platforms. (at least Solaris and Mac OS X). So it should be a different issue of Bug 485125.

I didn't recreate the crash of comment #2 with this patch on Solaris.

Is this still a problem on trunk, now that plugins are out of process?

Tried latest-trunk on linux with ipc turned on, reloading the page causes Helix player crash.

Clearing out old reviews. If this is still relevant, please re-request review for this patch.

Closing old bugs in the Plugins component. We aren't going to track issues in 3rd-party plugins in the Mozilla bug tracker. In addition, support for NPAPI plugins will be removed at the end of this year; for more details see the post at https://blog.mozilla.org/futurereleases/2015/10/08/npapi-plugins-in-firefox/

If there is a serious bug in Firefox, it needs to be filed in the "Core" product, "Plug-Ins" component.
