User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:12.0a1) Gecko/20111224 Firefox/12.0a1
Build ID: 20111224031026

Steps to reproduce:

Open attachment file in Nightly build firefox. I'll reduce the repro-case after the Holidays.

Actual results:

Comment 1 Matthias Versen [:Matti] 2011-12-25 20:41:22 PST
I can confirm a crash if I load the testcase via local filesystem.

This seems to be the regression range:
Last good nightly: 2011-09-21
First bad nightly: 2011-09-22

Comment 2 Matthias Versen [:Matti] 2011-12-25 21:07:05 PST
The crash report is useless: bp-f0aa99af-c05c-4735-9e50-52ced2111225 except that it confirms EXCEPTION_NONCONTINUABLE_EXCEPTION

Reduced test-case is file with the following content:

Comment 6 Boris Zbarsky [:bz] (still a bit busy) 2011-12-26 08:30:20 PST
I can't reproduce the crash in a trunk build on Mac.  Is this Windows-only?

The crash report stack is obviously busted, sadly.  :(  But I can buy us crashing on a null-deref here.

Alice0775, do you happen to have a debug build by any chance?  Accurate information on where this is actually crashing would be really useful!
Comment 7 Atte Kettunen 2011-12-26 08:42:54 PST
Can't reproduce on Ubuntu 11.04 x64 either. Seems like windows only. Can someone clarify the noncontinuable exception for me? Never faced one before.
Comment 8 Boris Zbarsky [:bz] (still a bit busy) 2011-12-26 08:54:50 PST
I don't think it's worth worrying about the exception type.  Given the crash address, this is a null-deref; given the Windows-only thing and the testcase, it's somewhere in nsLocalFileWin.  The question is where....

$: also crashes on Firefox3.0-12.0
Comment 10 Boris Zbarsky [:bz] (still a bit busy) 2011-12-26 12:39:59 PST
Those stacks are still showing crashes at points where there is nothing there to crash.  :(
Comment 11 Masatoshi Kimura [:emk] 2011-12-26 19:38:37 PST
> int drive = TOUPPER(path.First()) - 'A' + 1;
Obviously |drive| will have a bogus value when the drive letter is invalid.

Patch v1.
Comment 13 2012-02-01 13:45:02 PST
Indeed, running the test case in a debug build is much more effective:

Microsoft Visual C++ Debug Library

Debug Assertion Failed!

Program: ...
File: ...\crt\src\getcwd.c
Line: 233

Expression: ("Invalid Drive", 0)

Sadly Gecko then hangs because it executes a posted runnable that tries to XHR to perform an addon check that tries to create the bad cert handler for the first time by loading it from the startup cache even though I used -purgecaches which deadlocks when the startup cache thread tries to access the CRT...
Comment 14 2012-02-01 14:22:54 PST
Actually what worries me is why we are hitting this code at all because file:///C:/ should be a canonical path...
Comment 15 Brian R. Bondy [:bbondy] 2012-02-01 16:03:21 PST
At this point in code we're no longer working with file URLs but actual file paths.

nsPrincipal::CheckMayLoad calls fileURL->GetFile() to get the targetFile, and then calls Normalize on that target file.
Comment 16 2012-02-02 13:14:48 PST
Yes, I do understand that Normalize has been called, but C:\ is already canonical, so we shouldn't be trying to canonicalise it in this case.

The easiest example I could find of this is that launching composer using seamonkey -edit C:\ actually loads the listing for the current directory!
Comment 17 Brian R. Bondy [:bbondy] 2012-02-02 13:29:39 PST
I understand your concern and I'd like to investigate that in the context of another bug since it isn't related to this crash.  For example this crash can be reproduced by anyone using nsIFile and so this fix should be applied independently.  

Please let me know if you disagree.

Patch v1.

In that case I would prefer it if InitWithPath failed immediately.

Patch v2.

Thanks for the review.  Implemented review comments.
Comment 20 Brian R. Bondy [:bbondy] 2012-02-06 10:41:56 PST
In case it gets an r+, this is passing try.
