I have repeatedly seen crashes with FIPS enabled.

And I found a lot of crashes at

The stack on my machine (Solaris) is similar as

I can reproduce it with following steps
1) Create a new profile, set a master password, enable FIPS
2) Restart Firefox.
3) Open, it should not ask you master password.
4) Leave it alone for several minutes.
5) Crash.

It didn't crash if I change step 3) to
3) Open, it should ask you master password. Enter your master password. Open

This is because we're creating the prompt service from off the main thread, which xpconnect rightly refuses to do. bsmith I believe has a patch to make all the prompting use the main thread, but I'm surprised that this crashes.

It's a null-deref at which presumably indicates that cc is null which means that the prior call to GetCurrentNativeCallContext returned a success code but didn't actually hand back a call context.

I was experiencing a very similar crash, which is now resolved for me after the removal of XPCOM proxies from PSM (see bug 675221). Try current mozilla-aurora?

I didn't reproduce it with mozilla-central.
I got "Password Required" dialog after a few minutes.

looks like a different cause.

That is a similar problem, in a different component. I filed bug 711820 for it.

This was already fixed in the PSM parts of bug 675221, specifically [1] which landed on mozilla-central on 2011-11-03.

Too late for Firefox 9. I might be able to pare down the patch that fixes this in order to fix it for Firefox 10, but it is pretty late for that too.

From my read of crash-stats, this does not appear to be a top crasher or a new regression.
