Bug 718340 may have caused this. investigating.
Attached file test
If I read the XBL code (C++ and videocontrols.xml) correctly, this is a valid
bug. Utils field can be deleted from the js object, yet some timeout function 
tries to use it.
Attached patch patch (obsolete) — Splinter Review
This could hopefully fix the problem.

Review of attachment 588976 [details] [diff] [review]:

This looks fine to me. I tested this out on my Windows build by causing the timeout to be set and then closing the tab or navigating away from the page. I couldn't reproduce the exception with or without the patch though (but that's probably expected due to its randomness).

I'd grant an r+ but I'm not a toolkit peer, so I've passed this review on to Dolske. Thanks for fixing this!

Nit: Please remove this extra whitespace.
I was told this happened even without the patch for Bug 718340.

It might only happen on opt builds, of which I'm running a debug build.

Based on tryserver, this doesn't fix the problem :(

Comment 18 was from the merge of the merge from fx-team, a perhaps more likely place for it to start, since it brought over the patch for bug 689387, and in fact there is an unstarred instance of this on the fx-team push of that.

This problem is verified in version 13.  I can reproduce it 100% of the time.  I get 2 exceptions in rapid succession when I navigate away from a playing video:

chrome://global/content/bindings/videocontrols.xml(639): event.item is undefined
chrome://global/content/bindings/videocontrols.xml(816): Utils is not defined
No sign of this for many months.
