Under regular use, I haven't yet seen the browser go more than ~15 mins without crashing. This seems to always happen under a call to PR_GetAddrInfoByName -> getaddrinfo.

My browser crashed immediately when loading the repro URLs from the two referenced bugs (http://www.liliputing.com/2008/10/hp-2133-mini-note-prices-continue-to-drop.html and http://planet.mozilla.org/), but loading them subsequently hasn't caused a crash. So, no solid repro scenario. I suspect this is the same crash as this bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=463101 ...but that bug seems to have gotten titled and bucketed on a red herring (the "double free or corruption" report, which looks like it was spurious) Reproducible: Couldn't Reproduce
sorry. i do appreciate second attempts, but it's better to try to fix the summary of the first bug. especially since the triager is unlikely to change.
Fine to consolidate the bugs, although please note I am not the submitter of #463101.
