Description Boris Zbarsky [:bz] (still a bit busy) 2012-04-03 20:11:04 PDT


the issue is we're calling Function.prototype.toString.  We never added an own toString on our interface objects....

This is causing orange on the Jetpack tests.

Tracking for release to prevent issues hiding behind these orange tests. Let's go with the simplest fix (test or code change) to get this working again.

If that's not the only reason to track this bug for release, please clarify. Thanks!

You could use JS_THIS_OBJECT and then just null-check it; then no need for thisv.

Note that JS_THIS always returns either JSVAL_NULL or an ObjectValue(), so the "undefined" case can't even be hit here.

r=me with those fixed.

[Approval Request Comment]
Regression caused by (bug #): bug 740069
User impact if declined: seems to break Jetpack tests, not sure if it affects addons. Could cause website breakage due to unexpected exceptions.
Testing completed (on m-c, etc.): landed on m-c (and has a testcase)
Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): low-risk
String changes made by this patch: None
