I believe this can be triggered by trying to save a pop-up that is about to be closed just in the right moment, i.e. a race condition, sadly I had no luck reproducing it another time yet (tried about 10 times).

My original crash was bp-4d7f1e6c-04eb-4ef8-ae40-6ba3e2120820.
Oh, now I got it, the pop-up needs to open in a tab, e.g. because you have set to 0. Now I can reliable reproduce it on a clean profile: bp-1780b256-2332-4829-91e5-f5b1e2120820

The save dialog does not close when the tab gets automatically closed, unlike in the pop-up case, so making it close in the tab case too would be a good fix? Good candidate for a first patch?

Attached file 1st part, open this
Open this, let the "pop-up" open (but as a tab by having the appropriate about:config entries set, like set to 0), quickly switch to it and do a "Save Page As…" before it closes, and click OK in the "Save As" file-picker dialog only after the tab has closed itself.

Huh? Is this some sort of security feature that it will ignore me when I explicitly set the MIME type to text/html the first time?

I tried to download attachment 668421 [details] and hit the same crash:

It's reproducible all the time with the above mentioned attachment. Marcia, would you mind to check how often this crash occurs at the moment?

What happens here is that the "aDocument" argument passed to nsWebBrowserPersist::SaveDocument is some random non-document JS object.  XPConnect happily makes up an nsIDOMDocument, but then we QI it to nsIDocument, get null, and crash.
Ah, looks like the JSObject passed in is a proxy.  The proxy handler is js::DeadObjectProxy.  So this is actually sort of fallout from bug 695480, which is why it appears in 15.

I'll add the null-check here, but I wonder whether we should refuse to create XPCWrappedJS around js::DeadObjectProxy instances!
Blocks: hueyfix
Note that this will cause the saveDocument calls to throw, by the way...

Probably.  We should probably also make nsIDOMDocument builtinclass.
Yes, I was assuming there was some deep reason why it wasn't yet....
There might be!  Node isn't builtinclass either.
Marcia, I hope you don't mind me stealing this.  ;)

Don't try to save if what we have is not a real document object.

[Approval Request Comment]
Bug caused by (feature/regressing bug #): hueyfix
User impact if declined: Random crashes when trying to save self-closing moles,
   er, windows.
Testing completed (on m-c, etc.): Patched build doesn't crash on the testcases in
   this bug.  Instead it shows an alert that it could not save the document.
Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): Low risk.  Adds a
   null-check and exception instead of dereferencing null and crashing.
String or UUID changes made by this patch: None.

[Triage Comment]
Approving for Aurora 17 given this is just a null check fix for a low volume crasher. Please land early Monday PT to make the merge.

> Alex, is this wontfix for 16 then?

Yep - updated the status flag.

No crashes in 17beta1 and a nice error message is displayed when saving the testcases which previously crashed the browser in F16.
