Comment 3

Ok, new information.

After digging into wordpress I found that the combination of W3 Total Cache & WordPRess.com Stats is to blame.  I edited the Wordpress.com Stats plugin to remove the 'Link: <http://wp.me/asdf>; rel=shortlink' HTTP Header it returned, and remove the <link rel="shortlink"> it added in the HEAD block.  That seems to have eliminated the crash.

Perhaps a conflict in the "X-Powered-By: W3 Total Cache/0.8.5.1" Header and the "Link" header tickled some rare Bug?

If I re-enabled the Link header, the crash returns.
Had this crash on me twice in the past couple of days, with a Firefox 3.6.4 beta on Mac OS X 10.4 (build ID: 20100513134853).

bp-51d52ccb-4502-43fa-b636-5b22e2100518
bp-e254f837-7f99-4fed-bcff-4bb8e2100520

Any progress on getting this fixed? Or any insight as to why it's recently cropped back up?
(To answer my second question, I can only assume this has something to do with the backporting of Lorentz.)

But I also seem to have found a new website that crashes fairly consistently in this build:
http://tvbythenumbers.com/

It's crashed twice more since I last commented. (One of the crash reports I linked to earlier was also from this website.) However, one of the crashes is apparently from [@ nsTimerEvent::Run() ], which isn't mentioned in the bug summary.

This error seems to cause the majority of my crashes on Firefox—which have reached 11 per day at the top end now.

To Randall Hand above, there may be a link with Wordpress Stats, because I use this plug-in, though I don't use the W3 Total Cache.

Noting that I have this same crash on Windows Vista (I typically get it on XP, from which I filed the comment above). It is far more widespread than I believe Mozilla would like to acknowledge.

Mozilla doesn't take the time to actively not acknowledge something. If it were more "widespread", there would be more than 10 comments here. Comment 8 shows the crash stats as of the end of September. If you have seen a sharp increase of crashes in recent builds, please provide your crash IDs.

Comment 12

Thank you, Gordon.

I would have filed more, but they have disappeared from my about:crashes. On the 9th, for example, I had 11 crashes (http://jackyan.com/blog/2010/1209b4.png). Now it shows only seven. Typically, Firefox crashes four times per day, more often than not with this crash, regardless of the platform I use (XP or Vista).

As requested, here are the most recent ones that about:crashes has not deleted from my XP PC; will have to go on to my Vista laptop to get those separately. I’ve stopped at the last 3.6.12 crash I could find:

bp-ea466628-76ad-42e0-881b-8032e2101217
bp-c28da65d-d843-4ce4-a45f-0ef022101220
bp-9292cae5-6881-4aa9-b365-e7d1a2101215
bp-3121ca66-e15b-4b77-bc58-3c5c02101214
bp-4caf473a-2119-4a3f-97c4-ef7ce2101212
bp-df829354-1f5a-4fb8-b80e-c86922101204

Unlike others, I have seen a sharp increase in crashes since 3.6.10 (no crashes per day to an average of four), but never knew about Bugzilla or about:crashes till fairly recently. I realize everything is relative, and you’ve seen other things that crash Firefox a lot more, but there’s a strong possibility that many netizens don’t even know about this site.

From the Vista laptop:

bp-6271d23b-ae8b-41de-a060-e815b2101220
918e4fa1-806e-4724-a82b-9c5502101219
bp-9a2efd3b-9355-4f1f-82dc-2551b2101128

Again, there were far more on the day (e.g. about:crashes shows three from yesterday; in fact there were five—I hope this means they are either getting solved or consolidated), but these are the only two remaining for 3.6.13 (the last for 3.6.12).
Hmm... you're right. In the past week, there have been over 3600 crashes of this sort in 3.6.13 on Windows. In the past month, ~4900.

It does appear that there is a significant difference between build 2010113000 and build 2010120300, in terms of the number of crashes, though that may be a result of the disparity between number of users of those builds.

Interestingly, there is a large number of crashes for 3.5.15, and significantly smaller for 3.5.16.

I'm not the right person to be looking into this, but that should help whoever is.

Thank you, Gordon—it’s nice to have confirmation of the error, especially from someone who knows more than the average punter.

Do you think I should keep filing here as the crashes recur or will this be annoying for everyone?

Hi Timeless:

Thank you. 

Can I ask what is MSE2? (I have searched but there seems to be many explanations for what that stands for.)

I will attach frozen.dll as soon as I figure out how to do it—thank you for checking it out for me, in advance.

Meanwhile, this is from my laptop: cf19ace1-60e2-4a4a-9f10-dc83b2101228

So these 3 signatures only appear in 3.5 and 3.6. Since they don't happen in current versions, resolving this bug as works for me. There are other bugs logged for similar signatures already.
