1. Not sure, crashed after doing a draft message in Gmail.

Crash ID:

I also crashed in the same stack on the 20th.
Assuming the stack in the crash dump is correct, the crash happened at
I'd guess that the "token" argument is NULL.
It appears that this argument value gets passed all the way down the stack
through quite a few functions that never check it for NULL before it gets 
here.  This is the first place it is used.  

PK11_ImportCert gets a token pointer by calling 
   850    NSSToken *token = PK11Slot_GetNSSToken(slot);
but never checks it for NULL, and passes it down the stack to the point 
where it crashes.  That's my hypothesis.

Is this using FIPS mode?
I may have previously used FIPS mode in this profile, but at the time of the crash FIPS was not enabled.

Summary: Crash in nssToken_FindCertificateByIssuerAndSerialNumber → Crash in [@ find_objects_by_template - nssToken_FindCertificateByIssuerAndSerialNumber]
The info that Timeless added confirms that the token pointer is NULL.
This patch adds sanity checks for NULL token pointers to all the relevant

This patch builds, so I will ask Bob to review it.  I will try to test it

note that i just grabbed it from comment 0, but indeed, this is why it's a good idea to inline the basic bit + crashing frame stack (up to 20 frames). glad to be of service.

Bug 503418 is marked as blocking but requires this patch. Asking for blocking1.9.2

What's the distribution vector here? Does this imply a new NSS tag?
This bug fix is targeted for NSS 3.12.6, which will follow NSS 3.12.5,
which is now in final release stages (I believe).
I see only 0-3 crashes per day across all firefox releases over the last two months on this signature.   might be a good candidate for a security/stability release if the fix involves updating to a new nss with other changes.
This was only marked as a blocker due to the dependency from bug 503418, but I no longer think that blocks Firefox 3.6 (would rather release note it) and feel like we should address these issues when NSS 3.12.6 comes available.

People know what to do if they disagree, but basically, I don't think the problem in bug 503418 (unable to toggle FIPS mode without crashing, and occasional crashes in FIPS mode warrants it; also, there's indications in bug 503418 comment 47 indicates it isn't an issue anymore.

This crash persists in Firefox 3.6 beta 5 - Did NSS 3.12.6 make it into this release? I am having difficult toggling FIPS - Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIPKCS11ModuleDB.toggleFIPSMode]"  nsresult: "0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)"  location: "JS frame :: chrome://pippki/content/device_manager.js :: toggleFIPS :: line 545"  data: no] appears in the console. is my report.
NSS 3.12.6 is not yet released.  It's waiting for a fix for the SSL/TLS renegotiation bug, and for server side SNI, both now in development, 
expected soon.
