In loacl build, the following chagesets causes the problem. 6ea9b217883a Blake Kaplan — Bug 546573 - EnsureInnerWindow from wrappers. r=jst sr=bzbarsky
Blake, this was caused by your commit, assuming the blame in the previous comment is correct.
I can't reproduce on Linux.
Olli, can you help out here? mrbkap was able to reproduce this on Linux but doesn't have time to debug any time soon. We know this started with the compartments landing, but we need to figure out what goes wrong, and maybe at that point mrbkap can help fix it if it's not something someone else can do.
OK, if I read and debug this correctly, the problem is that browser.xml handles pagehide event and it doesn't check the target of the event. It just always hides the autoscroller when such event happens. So bug 546573 seems to have changed the timing of some session history operations, but in practice this bug does exist on branches too.
Created attachment 500004 [details] [diff] [review] patch I'm not sure who should review this.
Comment on attachment 500004 [details] [diff] [review] patch >+ var doc = this._scrollable.ownerDocument ? >+ this._scrollable.ownerDocument : this._scrollable.document; I'd probably prefer it if you made an instanceof Window test to be consistent with autoScrollLoop. Or you could use || which works like Perl, not C++.
comment 9 ++ I thought I edited the style guide to recommend writing a || b not a ? a : b, and a && b not a ? b : a. If I didn't or that edit was lost, feel free to fix. /be
