User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:10.0a1) Gecko/20111009 Firefox/10.0a1

Using lookupNamespaceURI() with XrayWrapper-ed element in text/html page causes NS_ERROR_FAILURE error.

Therefore, scripts which use XrayWrapper-ed element, such as
- Greasemonkey or Scriptish script
- Add-on SDK's content script
cause error when they use lookupNamespaceURI on text/html page.
For example, this problem affects AutoPagerize[1].


Reproducible: Always

Step to reproduce:

1. Set 'devtools.errorconsole.enabled' preference to true in about:config, then restart Firefox.
2. Input '' in the address bar, then press Enter.
3. Press Ctrl + Shift + K to launch web console.
4. Input 'document.lookupNamespaceURI(null)' in console, then press Enter to evaluate the code.
5. Input 'document.getElementsByTagName('div')[0].lookupNamespaceURI(null)' in console, then press Enter to evaluate the code.
6. Press Ctrl + Shift + K to close web console.
6. Press Ctrl + Shift + J to launch error console, then press Alt + C to clear messages.
8. Input 'top.opener.gBrowser.contentDocument.defaultView.document.lookupNamespaceURI(null)' in console, then press Alt + V to evaluate the code, and delete inputed code in console.
9. Input 'top.opener.gBrowser.contentDocument.defaultView.document.getElementsByTagName('div')[0].lookupNamespaceURI(null)' in console, then press Alt + V to evaluate the code.

Actual results:

Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIDOMHTMLDivElement.lookupNamespaceURI]"  nsresult: "0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)"  location: "JS frame :: javascript:%20top.opener.gBrowser.contentDocument.defaultView.document.getElementsByTagName('div')[0].lookupNamespaceURI(null) :: <TOP_LEVEL> :: line 1"  data: no]

Expected results:



result of Firefox 6.0.2 (User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:6.0.2) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/6.0.2)


result of Firefox 7.0.1 (User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:7.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/7.0.1)

So it seems that it is a regression.
This is actually a DOM bug... and it was introduced in bug 659053.

The non xraywrapper codepath calls nsINode::LookupNamespaceURI (directly, via quickstubs).

The xraywrapper codepath used to call nsNode3Tearoff::LookupNamespaceURI which then called nsINode::LookupNamespaceURI.  But the changes in bug 659053 added a LookupNamespaceURI directly on elements which forwards to nsGenericHTMLElement, like all the other DOM gunk.  So it ends up calling nsIContent::LookupNamespaceURI directly, which is the wrong thing to do.

I think the right fix here is to just rename nsIContent::LookupNamespaceURI to something else...

I have the same problem that calls LookupNamespaceURI from some XForms code. 

Before the DOM refractoring (bug 659053), it was like this (like bz said):

#0  nsIContent::LookupNamespaceURI
    at content/base/src/nsGenericElement.cpp:942
#1  nsINode::LookupNamespaceURI
    at content/base/src/nsGenericElement.cpp:786
#2  nsNode3Tearoff::LookupNamespaceURI
    at content/base/src/nsGenericElement.cpp:1309
#3  nsXFormsModelElement::GetTypeFromNode
    at extensions/xforms/nsXFormsModelElement.cpp:2027

Now it's like this:

#0  nsIContent::LookupNamespaceURI
    at ontent/base/src/nsGenericElement.cpp:1378
#1  nsXMLElement::LookupNamespaceURI
    at content/base/src/../../xml/content/src/nsXMLElement.h:58
[-> only a forward here to the one above]
#2  nsXFormsModelElement::GetTypeFromNode
    at extensions/xforms/nsXFormsModelElement.cpp:2026

Without having much idea about all the side-effects, I see three possible solutions:
a) Rename nsIContent::LookupNamespaceURI so that it doesn't override nsINode::LookupNamespaceURI any more (bz's suggestion)
b) Add the "return an empty string on any error and NS_OK"-code which is inside nsINode::LookupNamespaceURI ( to nsIContent::LookupNamespaceURI - but I don't know how that might break other things.
c) Remove the forwarding in nsXMLElement to nsGenericElement, but forward to nsINode instead

For solution a I attached a sample patch, a better name for the renamed method is still needed (perhaps lookupNamespaceURIInternal or something like that?); with that patch, the STR in this bug work as expected and the code in XForms does as well, so it seems to solve the problem.

patch proposal v1 (method name subject to change)

"Internal" is probably better than "2".  Other than that, looks ok, but have Jonas review, please?

thanks Boris, now with LookupNamespaceURIInternal as method name.

Could use a test too....

I don't quite understand what's going wrong here, but bz's review is absolutely enough for me. The change looks ok to me but I don't quite understand why it fixes things.
Attachment #579308 - Flags: review?(jonas) → review?(bzbarsky)
Jonas, the issue is that we have the following methods:

1) nsINode::LookupNamespaceURI (non-virtual, never throws)
2) nsIContent::LookupNamespaceURI (non-virtual, can throw)
3) nsIDOMNode::LookupNamespaceURI (pure-virtual)
4) ns***Element::LookupNamespaceURI (on each concrete element class, implementing the
   nsIDOMNode thing, virtual).

Quickstubs call #1, which checks whether we have a namespace element and if we do calls #2 on it.  If there is no namespace element or #2 throws, it returns null.

The XPConnect code used to call #1 as well, via Node3Tearoff.  But now it calls #4, which does the usual NS_FORWARD thing and lands directly in #2, which can throw.

So the proposed solution is to change the name of #2, so the forward from #4 will land in #1 instead, just like quickstubs.

patch, now with testcase

r=me, but that test will likely break with new dom bindings.  We'll fix it when we get to that, I guess.

Ah! I'm with you. Sounds good.

Please add a comment in the test describing why it does what it does (i.e. what you're trying to test).

Went through try (
which looks good to me, all test failures seems to be random orange.

I'm sorry to be spamming here, but could someone (bz, jonas?) get this checked in into mozilla-central so it makes the uplift today on time? I cannot do it myself due to missing commit access.
oh, I took the patch from my release repository instead of the mozilla-central one. Now the patch applies cleanly to mozilla-central as of now.
