Closed Bug 666657 Opened 11 years ago Closed 11 years ago
segfault when running firefox without -no-remote (with a Firefox instance already running)
STEPS TO REPRODUCE: 1. Start a Nightly build from 110618 or more recent. 2. In another terminal, run that nightly build again. e.g. [~/myNightly]$ ./firefox ACTUAL RESULTS: segfault. (The text "Segmentation fault" is printed before command returns to my terminal) Other than that, everything seems normal. (A new firefox window appears, as I'd expect.) EXPECTED RESULTS: No segfault. Nightly regression range: http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/pushloghtml?fromchange=306bdc7101c3&tochange=0830b8ed9f02 In that range, my first suspect would be bug 552864 -- tentatively flagging as regression from that.

Most likely cause is something accessing a static string after libxul is unloaded. Not the first time this happens, I've fixed a bunch of those a while ago.
Not tested, but this should work. I would like to add a test that would basically do firefox -remote 'ping()' and check that we get a return value of 2 and not 139, but I'm not sure where to put that...
