Description

9 years ago
A Firebug user has reported a case where Firefox fails.

1. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1b4pre) Gecko/20090420 Shiretoko/3.5b4pre 
2. Firebug 1.4a20. Script panel options 'Break on Errors'
3. http://demo.swfupload.org/v220/applicationdemo/index.php

The page has an error "movieElement is undefined" in JS that is evaluated from with the Flash plugin (NPSWF32.dll). It looks like Firebug is being invoked and it is calling for the debug event loop, jsd's enterNestedEventLoop(). That calls the native event processing loop, but that's the end of it. The thread makes no progress. So FF is up, its not burning CPU but its not painting either.

Presumably Flash has done something that prevents the event loop from progressing.

What can be done? Do we know the Flash folks who can suggest how to fix this?

Here is the stack on the UI thread FYI:

Kev: can we get our Adobe contacts to take a look?

Wai. Will drop them a line and ask them to have a look-see.
Any feedback from this?

fwiw, in Firefox 3.6 with Firebug 1.5b1, I am unable to reproduce this bug.
Is this still an issue ?

Hi John!

I couldn't reproduce the crash since I don't see the "movieElement is undefined" JS error.

In any case this is very old report and should be closed.
