###!!! ASSERTION: Weird break found!: 'limitLength >= 0', file layout/generic/nsTextFrameThebes.cpp, line 6824

###!!! ASSERTION: Invalid offset: 'aOffset <= mSkipChars->mCharCount', file gfx/thebes/gfxSkipChars.cpp, line 92

###!!! ASSERTION: negative length: 'GetContentEnd() - mContentOffset >= 0', file layout/generic/nsTextFrame.h, line 327

###!!! ASSERTION: integer overflow: 'mMaxTextLength < PR_UINT32_MAX - aFrame->GetContentLength()', file layout/generic/nsTextFrameThebes.cpp, line 1437

Regression from bug 263359, I think.

Security regression from something landed for Firefox 7, should be tracked.

This came from not checking the definition of which characters constitute a forced line break in CSS.
Comment 4 Jesse Ruderman 2011-06-14 00:45:42 PDT
As assertion from a spec violation? Is that because other parts of Gecko check the right thing?
Comment 5 Simon Montagu :smontagu 2011-06-14 00:53:59 PDT
Yes, the assertion was caused by the inconsistency between nsBidiPresUtils and nsTextFrameThebes.

Since we never shipped a release with this bug we don't need to keep it hidden.

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:7.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/7.0

Could you provide some clear steps to reproduce in order to verify this issue on QA side?
Comment 10 Jesse Ruderman 2011-08-19 18:13:57 PDT
Virgil - just load the testcase in a build with assertions enabled (i.e. a debug build).
Comment 11 Anthony Hughes (:ashughes) [GFX][QA][Mentor] 2011-09-22 15:09:48 PDT
qa- as no QA fix verification needed
