(Whiteboard: [rtm] Regression in past 7 days with Mac plugins)

We have a regression in Mac plugins introduced sometime in the last 7 days.  Bug 
#57012 is supposedly fixed by the checkin for bug #54081 but I cannot verify due 
to a crash when loading the Arcade Action page on  Note that 
this is in 4.x plugin code and I do not believe it is related to #57885.

Might help if I document how to repro the crash (which actually happens on the 
way to the aformentioned Arcade Action page):

1) Go to
2) Click on the Games button in the green link bar near the top of the page
3) You should crash as the Games page starts to load

Note that this assumes you've already got the Shockwave plugin installed in your 
plug-ins folder

@#$%^!  I came back in tonight to try and narrow down what had regressed and I 
can not repro the bug now.  Since it definitely was still crashing early this 
afternoon I'd like to leave the bug open so QA can do some testing.  Dropping the 
Severity level to critical and removing the block on 57012.
No longer blocks: 57012
Severity: blocker → critical

I have SW 8.5 and Flash 5.0 on mac branch build 10/24. Could not repro this 
crash. Peter already has a bug logged for crash on shockwave game (56896). I am 
marking this WFM. Steve, if you had SW8.0 installed, then this is a dup og

I'm almost done with a patch that will probably fix crashes on this site (and 
others). Is there a stack trace somewhere so I can verify?
