This was the easiest fix.
Attachment #519573 - Flags: review?(gal)
Is this a compartment-leaking security bug (sg:high or worse), or just an oops? I don't crash in an opt build, is "testcase (crashes Firefox when loaded)" simply a fatal assert in a debug build?
I think this can cause problems during GC with compartment GCs. Based on that alone I would say sg:something.
From talking to billm on IRC, operating on JS objects in the wrong compartment can cause us to collect reachable objects during GC. That's sg:critical. So, we should probably consider this as [sg:critical?]. Looking at the code, I'm not convinced that this case in particular is actually exploitable at all (and the result of the code that causes the assertion is thrown away anyway) but it's better to be safe than sorry.
