Description

18 years ago
The following XUL crashes, because there is no panel to correspond
with the second <tab>.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?xml-stylesheet href="chrome://global/skin" type="text/css"?>
<window orient="vertical"
  xmlns:html="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40" 
  xmlns="http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul">
<html>
Click on the second tab to crash (since there is no box to show).
</html>
     <tabcontrol orient="vertical">
       <tabbox orient="horizontal">
         <tab value="Tab 1" />
         <tab value="Tab Without a Panel -- crashes" />
       </tabbox>
       <tabpanel flex="1">
         <text value="Panel 1"/>
       </tabpanel>
     </tabcontrol>
</window>


Stack is below. I think just need a null check to prevent this.

-> Future (unless evaughan disagrees with me). This is one of a number of 
robustness fixes that need to happen, but not before RTM, since this is
not known to affect end-users in the NS6 product. This could be fixed on 
the Mozilla trunk, though.

By the way, this is an offshoot from bug 53150.

Comment 3

Doh! on neglecting to add corresponding tabpanel children to the tabbox
tabs, but the static XUL was working.  So I added code to maintain the
correspondence, and still get the crash with the classic theme but not
the modern theme, and found that the only way to satisfy the invariant 
that tabbox.childNodes.length == tabpanel.childNodes.length is to add
the new tabpanel child first, then the new tab.  Adding the new tab first
still triggers the seg fault with the classic skin.  With the modern
skin no problem is observed.

I don't understand your last comment, ericp. Your original testcase does not
crash when inserting the <tab> in either skin for a build after 09/19 evening
when danm checked his fix in.

It does crash when you click on the tab for the reason described in this bug
report, but if I modify your testcase to insert both a <tab> and a 
corresponding bit of content to the <tabpanel> _in_any_order_, I do not 
crash. I think you are confusing this bug (not fixed), and the original bug
(fixed) -- the stack traces are a dead giveaway -- the crash with the classic
skin when adding the <tab> was a deep recursion, this one is simply a null
pointer dereference.

I neglected to point out that I've been running this stuff on build
2000091312 all this time.  I'm probably way out of date now.

Comment 7

eric: keep in mind that all new hand-made builds have a build ID of 2000091312 
(which is a separate bug)...so it might not be as old as you think...

Just to be clear: this bug is only for the case where you create a <tab> with no
corresponding <tabpanel> contents. That is independent of the skin, and is in
now way related to the infinitely recursive stack noted on bug bug 53150, or
to the recent crash for tabcontrols noted in bug 54747.
