See ... it looks like Skype might be involved, but we can probably wallpaper over this or fix it in speculative parsing (if that is, in fact, where the bug lies).

#26 crash for 3.5.3

no crashes reported for 3.0.x releases. 
and doesn't appear for any trunk, beta or alpha builds
Keywords: crash, topcrash
OS: Linux → All
Summary: Topcrash [@ nsScriptLoader::StartLoad ] → Topcrash [@ nsScriptLoader::StartLoad(nsScriptLoadRequest*, nsAString_internal const&)]
Comments mention opening hotmail.  (And definitely correlated with the skype toolbar.)
Flags: blocking1.9.2?
Blake, did you say that we might be able to work around this crash in our code? FWIW, I've been trying pretty hard to reproduce this one, with the Skype extensions installed n' all, but no luck yet. I ran this in a debug build as well, and it seems the Skype extensions don't work right there (it *removes* phone numbers from webpages rather than wrapping them in a clickable link thing), but no crashes or thread safety assertions or anything like that.

This is a wallpaper. I don't understand how this crash happens.

Given that nobody seems to be able to reproduce this, I think we should land this and see what it does for us.

I am not using skype so that is not my problem with the crash. I have had so many different crashes lately. I just wish someone could help me with this. Thanks

#14 crash for 3.5.4. 3425 crashes roughly 2 weeks, about 1.6% of crashes
(3.5.4 hasn't been out for a week yet.)

I'm fairly sure this is a lot less than 1.6%. It's closer to 0.8% of crashes overall, last I checked.
I included what I assume is the RC.  I pasted the top 100 into excel (~170k) and guesstimated the count > which tacks on 40k. And from there came up with 1.6% Does the count above rank 100 typically amount to only 1/2 of crashes? Or, how does one get the full total?
Top 100 is ~35% of crashes, but let's not discuss metrics in this bug. Damon wanted an estimate. (I finally remembered to fix the bug number typo).

Resolution: --- → FIXED
I came to this page from the crash page:

(my instance of the dump was on: 2009-11-12 15:38:49.40305 with 3.5.5).

I just wanted to add that there's never been anything Skype-related installed on my machine, so I can't see that the dump would be caused by that.
That build was from two days before (11-02) I landed the fix on the 1.9.1 branch (11-04).
