I'm guessing this is at least in part due to a bug in IcedTea java plugin. Still, it used to work (recently, w/in the last 2 months on trunk), and it doesn't anymore. --> 'regression' keyword
Did you manually set dom.ipc.plugins.enabled or use the default when checking the regression? The range includes
Benjamin Smedberg — Bug 531142 - Turn on multi-process plugins by default
which seems highly suspect.
Ah, that's probably part of it. I tried that in my up-to-date build, but not in older builds. (I'd thought we'd defaulted-to-IPC-being-on longer ago than that. :)) I'll try toggling that and report back...
NOTE: this is WFM on a different Ubuntu 9.04 machine, using sun-java6-plugin.
NOTE: Loading the URL in the 20100128 m-c nightly, I get a multiple "a plugin crashed" dialogs, as noted in comment 1. Just now, it gave me 3 dialogs (for a single load of the page). I pressed 'submit' on all of them, and here are the resulting reports:
bsmedberg is right in comment 2 -- this is only an issue with "dom.ipc.plugins.enabled" turned on. Problem goes away if I disable that pref. (double-checked that w/ the 20100128 nightly and also today's nightly)

Here's the combined stdout + stderr, with IPC disabled, with page loading just fine. (Contains a few "java.*.*Exception" backtraces, and nothing scarier than that)

I tried building from source but gave up after IcedTea required me to install nspr, xulrunner, libxul-unstable, and mozjs (very very bad sign!). I tried the system Ubuntu 9.10 IcedTea and confirmed it's broken; it apparently doesn't report a MIME type
LoadPlugin() /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre/lib/amd64/IcedTeaPlugin.so returned 30b5a90
GetMIMEDescription() returned ""
I'll try hard coding application/x-java-applet for IcedTea.so and see if I can repro. Otherwise I'll spin up an Ubuntu 10.4 VM.
So, the Ubuntu 9.10 version of IcedTea (6b16-1.6.1-3ubuntu1) is an XPCOM plugin.
WONTFIX for that. I'll spin up a 10.4 VM.

dholbert, you try running "strings IcedTeaPlugin.so | grep NP_" and see if you get anything?

IcedTea dies in my 64-bit VM because IcedTea wants SSE2 and it's either absent or IcedTea is failing to detect it. Need to give a 32-bit VM a shot.
On the bright side, I found that VMWare linux 64-bit will now record/replay! I've got a fun project for next week.

To clarify, this was when running under valgrind. I repro'd running normally.
fwiw, bug 552891 was my last encounter with icedtea...
Had some VM trouble, finally got icedtea to compile from source (needed to use mercurial latest). Here's one problem
$ nm -g --defined-only ~/.mozilla/plugins/libicedteadplugin.so | grep NP_

000000000000a970 T _Z21NP_GetMIMEDescriptionv
We're not resolving any npapi entry functions because they're not |extern "C"|. Need to file this against IcedTea. Whipping up a bandaid patch atm.
Nm, this was my fault; I bypassed pkg-config incorrectly. The fix was to -DXP_UNIX in MOZILLA_CFLAGS.
Here's one fun icedtea bug right off the bat
command_line = (gchar**) malloc(sizeof(gchar)*5);
command_line = g_strdup(appletviewer_executable);
command_line = g_strdup("sun.applet.PluginMain");
command_line = g_strdup(out_pipe_name);
command_line = g_strdup(in_pipe_name);
command_line = NULL;
Oopsie! Not sure yet if this is what's causing the crash, but it sure upsets valgrind.
Yep, this is the cause of the bug.

I'll try to see why we don't hit this in the in-process case ...
Huh, I get the same crash running IcedTea in-process.
Shrug. Definitely an IcedTea bug. I'll patch it up, verify the fix, and file against IcedTea.

Hack around IcedTea bug by forcing it into debug mode
Still waiting for my account info for the IcedTea bugzilla.
I *really* hope IcedTea doesn't ship in the official Ubuntu 10.4 release with such an egregious bug, but we may be too short on time. Here's a hacky "fix" to hedge our bets. If IcedTea is fixed in time we can rip it out.
Karl, the code this fix applies to is http://icedtea.classpath.org/hg/icedtea6/file/1188b1a313b9/plugin/icedteanp/IcedTeaNPPlugin.cc line 1462.
Comment on attachment 436103 [details] [diff] [review]
Hack around IcedTea bug by forcing it into debug mode
In debug mode, the plugin opens a Java debug socket on localhost:8787
type port inode uid pid fd name
tcp 8787 1639542 1000 5951 5 java
This means other users on the machine can attach to the plugin and read possibly sensitive information (verified this with a program that seteuid's/setegid's to nobody/nogroup and connected to the debug socket).
So we're just going to have to blacklist this plugin until the bug is fixed.

Attempt to blocklist IcedTea (though not working locally)
I don't know if this is the right way to blocklist a plugin or from whom I should request review. Will resume tomorrow.
We basically have three options for dealing with IcedTea
(1) "OOP blacklist" it. This exposes firefox-bin to definite crash cases and a possible security vulnerability
(2) start linking mozilla-runtime with jemalloc so that IcedTea will sort of work in mozilla-runtime. This pushes the browser problems into the plugin process. (Karl rightly points out that this might cause plugin perf degradation if they're tuned to the libc allocator. I'm going to spin this investigation off in its own bug.)
(3) blocklist until the IcedTea bug is fixed
I personally lean towards (3), but my understanding is that Fedora Core 12 already uses IcedTeaPlugin, and I see little chance of this bug being fixed before Ubuntu 10.4 ships.

Matthias Klose wrote 7 hours ago: #5
the fix is in IcedTea and uploaded to lucid.
(3) afaik FC12 does use the IcedTeaPlugin.cc, not the IcedTeaNPPlugin.cc. The former is not affected.
No release enables the IcedTeaNPPlugin.cc by default.
(AFAICT the IcedTea fix should make it into Ubuntu 10.4 beta 2.)
Thanks for the fix, Chris! Great work. :)
FWIW bug 556198 will serve as a band-aid for this problem, hope to land it today.
FWIW, this is fixed for me, with previously-broken versions of Firefox -- hence, it looks like Chris's IcedTea patch (from comment 25) has made it into the Ubuntu repositories.
My current icedtea6-plugin version is "6b18~pre4-1ubuntu1", and it's WFM with today's nightly and with the previously-"doesn't work" nightly from comment 1. (I verified that "mozilla-runtime" is running in both instances, indicating that the plugin is indeed being run OOP without crashing.)
