Null dereference with bad channel implementing URI in ns
HTMLDocument::Start Document Load
I wrote a buggy nsIChannel implementation, which returned a null URI calling GetURI. Mozilla crashed later on this line: uri->GetScheme(scheme); I have a patch for that but no active test. My test at the time involved a JS-implemented channel.
I would rather crash here than press on with a bogus channel impl and end up with a security hole or something...
Yeah, I think I agree with bz. Is there a particular reason you want to change this?
Given that we want to move towards implementing more stuff in JS, I don't think we can keep saying that JS should never be able to crash the browser.
