That is a very strange stack.  The bit up to DOMStorageImpl::SetValue makes sense, but I don't really understand where the rest of it comes from.
Ok, the hashtable frames could be coming from nsGlobalWindow::Observe, ie.

>      if (!mPendingStorageEventsObsolete) {
>        mPendingStorageEventsObsolete = new nsDataHashtable<nsStringHashKey, PRBool>;
>        NS_ENSURE_TRUE(mPendingStorageEventsObsolete, NS_ERROR_OUT_OF_MEMORY);
>        rv = mPendingStorageEventsObsolete->Init();
>        NS_ENSURE_SUCCESS(rv, rv);
>      }
>      mPendingStorageEventsObsolete->Put(domain, PR_TRUE);

but it's still weird how the frames between the DOMStorage value setting and the observer notification are screwed up/nonexistent in some reports.
Interestingly enough, every single report I've looked at so far looks to be from some European version of Windows.
Please see also bug 630242.  My tip is that a window is used after CleanUp() has been called.
#6 crash on Beta10.
The stack above nsGlobalWindow::Observe is probably completely bogus. Honza seems to have a clue what's going on, so he gets the bug ;-)

If this is #6 crasher on b10, this sure should be a hardblocker.
I think bsmedberg meant to assign this to Honza, and having him take a closer look makes sense to me.
Whiteboard: [hardblocker]
My theory is that it is related to bug 630242.  We are sending DOM storage events to an nsGlobalWindow instance that is both:
- CleanUp()'ed
- Freeze()'ed

Going to check if I really am able to reproduce the first condition with test case from bug 630242.  If so, then fixing it will probably fix this bug as well.

This could be a dupe of some nsGlobalWindow leak.  We remove observers in the destructor.  Could this be that fix for bug 622361 is not sufficient?
Well, the fix for Bug 622361 doesn't really mess with old style storage events.  (I don't think moving the delete call should have changed anything.)
OK, I think I can say it is what I describe in comment 9, with additional conditions, enumerating them rather all again:

- nsGlobalWindow must receive an event from globalStorage change while it is frozen (to create mPendingStorageEventsObsolete hash table)
- it's Freeze()'ed and it's CleanUp()'ed (mPendingStorageEventsObsolete deleted but not nullified) ; doesn't matter in what order
- receive globalStorage change event again

I just checked I was able to receive globalStorage event in a window that has been CleanUp()'ed.

To have a simple fix for this bug, I'd return early from ::Observe() method if mCleanedUp flag is set.  Also nullifying mPendingStorageEventsObsolete would be good.

Someone more experienced with lifetime of nsGlobalWindow instance should confirm it is OK.

Kyle, I don't think anymore it could be related to your changes, this bug is there IMO forever, just raised because of some other change that makes the four conditions appear more often.

Patch according to comment 12.

Who's gonna review it?
Attachment #509151 - Flags: review?
Should probably switch mPendingStorageEventsObsolete to be an nsAutoPtr.

Maybe nsGlobalWindow should just stop observing these events when it is cleaned up.  Bailing on *all* notifications when the window has been cleaned up seems risky both now and in the future.
Comment on attachment 509151 [details] [diff] [review]

I think this would fix this, and I'd be ok with this change for now, but I think we might as well do what Kyle suggests and make this more future proof.
Attachment #509151 - Flags: review? → review-
I agree.

I am just testing the patch as suggested by Kyle, and have following issues:

I'm getting a different scenario now.  I can still see an nsGlobalWindow instance, that has no outer window, is NOT CleanUp()'ed - the flag is not set - and in general seems 'empty', i.e. all members of nsPIDOMWindow are null.

However, in the log (DOMLeak:5) I can see that the window has been created and assigned an outer window in the constructor, and so far not destroyed.

As I'm looking to mxr, I cannot find a place where mOuterWindow should be released (nullified).

Could the cycle collector free it up?  Though, there are other inner windows referring the same outer window that are still alive.

Could it be some saved state reversal?
(In reply to comment #16)
> and in general seems 'empty', i.e. all members of nsPIDOMWindow are null.

- mIsInnerWindow
- mWindowID
- mHasNotifiedGlobalCreated
When the cycle collector unlinks an inner window mOuterWindow is nulled out (at
Yes, that's it, just adding a simple log ("DOMWINDOW %p UNLINK", static_cast<nsGlobalWindow*>(tmp)) to NS_IMPL_CYCLE_COLLECTION_UNLINK_BEGIN(nsGlobalWindow) section shows it is the case.

I'll move comments 16 to 19 to bug 630242 where those belong.  It seems unrelated to this bug now, just confused me.

I think this is ok, but it really should be reviewed by jst or another dom peer.
