Comment 1

This signature also appears to be a low-volume crash signature which has been around in prior versions of Flash, but has spiked significantly with protected mode.
When I look at the breakdown by Firefox version, it seems almost all of the Aurora crashes are startup crashes, but those on 13.0.1 and trunk have uptime.

Here are the steps to reproduce, reported by Adobe:

1:Clear  firefox cache and Go to http://www.vudu.com/movies/#
2:Choose New Trailers
3:Player tailers one by one  -- Once the video starts playing, you can seek to 5-10 seconds before the end of the video, then let it complete.

Crash after playback  3 or more of the trailers (eg. play The Loved Ones->Madagascar3->Magic Mike->The Loved Ones)

Apparently this isn't an issue in Firefox 12.

I tried this but can't get Vudu to load at all... I'll try again on a different box. In the meantime, Marcia is it possible to get other people to try this and get a nightly regression window? Specifically checking the nightlies before and after bug 90268 landed, since it's the obvious candidate.

Not sure whether this is revelant. I ran these STR in nightly under a debugger and got a different stack trace:

Oddly, following these steps I can consistently reproduce the F1046602699 crash when in a debugger, and the F_835252764 signature when running Firefox normally with the crash reporter.

hrm! I crashed with crash report https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/bp-9386a084-5e5d-4c65-84c1-48adc2120717 which says that the stack is:

0: F_835252764_________________________________________________________ (F_1885880_________________________________________________________:2423)
1: F1018235994______________________________________ (F_1963533604__________________________________________________:3810)
2: F_1417225323______________________________________ (F_1963533604__________________________________________________:3756)
3: NPP_SetWindow (F_1417895389__________________________________________________________________:976)

MSVC says the stack for the same crash is:

>	NPSWF32_11_3_300_265.dll!F1046602669___________________________()  Line 2423	C++
 	NPSWF32_11_3_300_265.dll!F1092009539__________()  Line 3811	C++

 	NPSWF32_11_3_300_265.dll!NPP_SetWindow()  Line 976	C++

So the source/line information matches, but the function names don't. This is confusing; it must be something about the obfuscation technique?
Adding qawanted, but I will take a look at the STR in Comment 3 and see if I can help find a regression range.

Using the latest nightly in the lab (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:17.0) Gecko/17.0 Firefox/17.0), I keep freezing while the video is buffering - http://www.vudu.com/movies/# and playing the three stooges video.

I will try another machine next.
So far on several different Windows 7 machines I have not been able to reproduce the crash using the STR in Comment 3.

Hrm, I can almost always reproduce it, though it sometimes requires repeating the trailer load 10 or more times. It was easier to reproduce when I tied all the processes to a single CPU to emulate a single-CPU system. Perhaps it's easier to see with slower hardware?
I can reproduce the bug in today's Nightly and Windows 7. I followed the steps in #3.

I apologize to all. My above comment had been done using the wrong Flash version.

I updated to the correct one and I can still reproduce the bug.

This crash should be fixed in Flash 11.3.300.268.
Gabriela did some preliminary testing last evening and her testing indicates that .268 did address this crash. She indicated she would also do some additional testing this evening.
Crashes were reduced in 11.3.300.268, but are still around with .270 in smaller numbers.

MarioMi: As this is a crash in Flash, the versions of Firefox it happens in are not very useful. What is more useful is which versions of Flash it happens in.

Comment 25

There continues to be traffic on this signature for current Flash Player versions.  It happens under extreme low memory conditions.  Our audit of related code did not reveal opportunities for a blind fix.

I've pulled some 11.6 crash reports and added them to our bug in an attempt to get some new traction on this, but reproducible steps would be incredibly helpful as we're hitting the end of what we can glean from the stacks.

Matt Talistu noticed that I had put these comments in the wrong bug.  They belong here. Sorry for the confusion!

From Magnus:
It would be useful to have the call stack for the PIC process.  The current attached dumps are in the sandbox process.  Difficult to know what's going on as Jimson said earlier in the notes.

From Jimson: 
Seems to be due to a corrupt AbortUnwindList. May be because we don't remove the last AbortUnwindObject from the list. This would indicate that the player didn't invoke RemoveAbortUnwindObject() for one of the added objects. However, no missing invocations stand out.

Georg, is there anything actionable for you in comment 30-32? If not, what would help here? A Firefox regression window? A Flash regression window?

Comment 34

While there's a common signature in play, my guess is that the huge uptick we're seeing with Flash Player 11.8 has a unique root-cause.  

We reopened this last week as 3550712 and are currently investigating.  There has been persistent low-volume activity on this signature for years that I don't believe will be resolved by this fix.  I expect we'll have a fix for the immediate issue in a future Flash Player 11.8 beta build, and will be looking for parity with Flash Player 11.7 as our short-term success case.

We believe this is fixed on our side, but we had a nasty installer bug that prevented us from shipping the Beta last week.  That issue is also resolved, and we should be on track for shipping a beta this week with this fix.

We shipped a blind fix for this in 11.8.800.64, and I see a sharp reduction in frequency as compared to 11.8.800.50.  The low volume in 11.8.800.75 is early, but also supports a positive resolution. 

I've closed 3550712 as Fixed.  

In terms of the baseline issue (3318859), I think we're stuck on the issues in Comment 28

We really should have had a separate bug for the 11.8 spike to have it cleanly tracked separately. But what's done is done, so we need to live with having both issues in this bug.
