Open Bug 518562 Opened 13 years ago Updated 3 years ago
Investigate if mutationobservers could have a flag to indicate whether the caller needs to keep a strong reference to them
See Bug 518122
Another interesting approach might be to see whether we can make observers never trigger a release of themselves while being notified. That might be somewhat difficult, though....
One solution would be to break XPCOM rules and force observers that could potentially release themselves to hold a kungFuDeathGrip on themselves.
We should also avoid calling any dummy mutation observer methods, is just possible.
