Description

7 years ago
I got a Nightly crash that brought up the apple crash reporter on 10.0a1 (2011-11-04). Looks like Nightly crashed and then breakpad crashed:

I'm going to try to reproduce now...
Since DynamicImages is on the stack, this is probably an out-of-process plugin crash that Breakpad was trying to write a minidump for. I'm guessing we read some bad data somehow, and tried to create an entirely too-large vector to hold it, causing operator new() to throw.

I seem to be able to reproduce a plugin crash / hang on yahoo news that than triggers a breakpad crash or hang. I'll try to figure out which ad is causing it.
