Marking as Firebug-p1 since this is blocking Firebug team from testing on nightlies.

Yet another way how to see the exact regression range:

Regression range from comment 0:

Nothing in there jumps out at me....
Comment 5 User image jorge alves 2011-05-16 17:32:59 PDT
There's a tracemonkey merge in there...

Trying out hourly builds I got to this:
Comment 6 User image Robert Kaiser 2011-05-17 09:17:37 PDT
As of yesterday, this is the #1 crash on trunk with roughly 10% of all trunk crashes!
All the 6.0a1 crashes I checked in do have Firebug installed - but there are a few 4.0.1 crashes with the same signature (probably some other cause) and those don't have Firebug installed.

Still, the Nightly+Firebug problem is the immediate one, we should get that fixed, ideally before this code goes into Aurora next week.
Comment 7 User image Boris Zbarsky [:bz] (still a bit busy) 2011-05-17 09:45:54 PDT
jorge: can you try Tracemonkey nightlies and/or hourlies?
Comment 8 User image Boris Zbarsky [:bz] (still a bit busy) 2011-05-17 09:47:10 PDT
ccing some of the people in that range too.
Comment 9 User image Marcia Knous [:marcia - use ni] 2011-05-17 10:44:50 PDT
Happens on Mac as well, 
[@ xpc::XrayWrapper<JSCrossCompartmentWrapper>::createHolder ]
Comment 11 User image jorge alves 2011-05-17 13:38:58 PDT
BTW, is there an easier way to browse and test these builds?
Doing it manually is a bit error-prone.
Comment 12 User image Boris Zbarsky [:bz] (still a bit busy) 2011-05-17 13:48:21 PDT
jorge, might work.
Comment 13 User image Boris Zbarsky [:bz] (still a bit busy) 2011-05-17 13:53:21 PDT
Blake, this looks like a regression from bug 641342.

All the crashes are at 0x10, which looks like a null deref somewhere here.

This code:

    2.15 +        JSObject *inner = obj;
    2.16 +        OBJ_TO_INNER_OBJECT(cx, inner);
    2.17 +        XPCWrappedNative *wn;
    2.18 +        if (IS_WN_WRAPPER(inner) &&
    2.19 +            (wn = static_cast<XPCWrappedNative *>(inner->getPrivate()))->HasProto() &&
    2.20 +            wn->GetProto()->ClassIsDOMObject()) {
    2.21 +            typedef XrayWrapper<JSCrossCompartmentWrapper> Xray;
    2.22 +            wrapper = &FilteringWrapper<Xray,
    2.23 +                                        CrossOriginAccessiblePropertiesOnly>::singleton;
    2.24 +            xrayHolder = Xray::createHolder(cx, obj, parent);

looks to me like a gc hazard if |inner| can go away while |obj| stays around, since nothing is using |inner| in this case after we get |wn|.  Can inner go away that way?

Proposed fix

In practice inner and outer are related, so there's no GC hazard there. That being said, I cleaned up the code a little bit. The actual fix is checking targetdata before trying to create the Xray wrapper.

Do note that I haven't actually been able to reproduce the crash. But based on crash stacks, this has to be the fix.

Applying the patch to current mozilla-central fixes the problem on my end.

Latest nightly still crashes.

Still crashes in the latest Nightly channel. This bug blocks me to test Firebug on Nightlies and so, I have no idea whether there are any other problems raising.

Nice! If this works out, we'll want it on aurora as well, I guess, as this crash should be on Aurora 6 now.
Comment 22 User image Sebastian Zartner 2011-05-26 22:37:24 PDT
For me it is still not fixed yet. See
Or didn't your fix make it into the latest nightly yet?
Comment 23 User image Boris Zbarsky [:bz] (still a bit busy) 2011-05-26 22:48:21 PDT
Yep.  Blake's push was at 2011-05-26 06:15 Pacific, while that crash report is from a nightly that was pulled at 2011-05-26 03:05 Pacific.
Comment 24 User image Sebastian Zartner 2011-05-27 15:20:30 PDT
Thanks, now the nightlies are finally working again. Though it seems the error now leaked into Aurora:
So hopefully there'll be an update soon.

That's why approval‑mozilla‑aurora had been requested and now granted, the latter meaning that the fix will soon be pushed there (a comment here will be made about this) and then fixed Aurora builds will appear.

Blake, can you please land this on Aurora? The last builds on trunk that are seeing this crash are the nightlies from before you checked in on m-c, but Aurora is still hitting this significantly. This crash now takes the two top spots in 6.0a2 topcrashes...
