The dialog closes.
The browser attempts to reload the page.

It stalls forever.
I can use "stop", I can enter another URL into the location bar, but it fails to load.

Note that after a restart of the application the page loads fine.
I believe this regression was caused by bug 674571.

I tried several times to reproduce on OSX with a nightly and no luck.  Is it every time for you?  Also, as the patches were just the "obvious" translation from (previously unsafe) proxies, I would appreciate any advice you have on this patch since you certainly understand what's actually going on in the code much better than I do.

Maybe it's Linux specific?
Happened to me with my own debug build.

If I backout your patch, I crash with the expected assertion (GetProxyForObject on wrapped JS not allowed).

I apply your patch, and I get your deadlock.


Could someone else running Linux please try to reproduce?

I am no longer able to reproduce myself.
Sorry for the noise :(

Maybe it was the side effect of another patch I had in my tree.
I'll reopen if it reoccurs.

Well, I don't know yet.
I tried the other potential culprit (my own work-in-progress-patch),
but I still cannot reproduce.

Maybe there is a random component to reproducing this bug.

I propose, let's try to find someone running Linux, who is able to reproduce this bug.

I'm changing to UNCONFIRMED and asking for QAWANTED.

Luke, try unchecking the "Permanently store this exception" checkbox in the exception window, when trying to reproduce. If you get a crash instead, see bug 678710.

Attempted to reproduce this issue several times using the steps in the description on the latest nightly. Worked fine for me.
This reflects the backout for the 8/18 nightly:
