Steps to reproduce:
1. go to this webgl test: https://cvs.khronos.org/svn/repos/registry/trunk/public/webgl/sdk/demos/google/shiny-teapot/index.html
What you expected:
A teapot displayed
Crash report ID (if applicable):
I believe other tests in the suite will cause similar crashes. Need to check more of these tests in this suite.
Shouldn't we group together all those malloc-related crashes triggered by WebGL demos on Android? For all we can see, they're likely all the same bug.
Benoit, I was thinking the same thing.
How would you like me to group them?
Should I go ahead and dup or do you want me to create a meta bug or do you want me to create a whiteboard tag?

*** Bug 709252 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I'm testing a patch that makes us revert to using the GLSL backend instead of the ESSL backend in the ANGLE compiler. Shouldn't make a behavior difference anyway, as on ES we're just passing the original shader source to the driver, but could avoid this crash if it's related to the ESSL backend.
Builds and logs will be available at http://firstname.lastname@example.org
We were able to confirm on AaronMT's phone that this patch fixes the crash.

The fix has been backported to Gecko 9+.
