Description Scoobidiver (away) 2012-07-13 08:48:14 PDT
It's currently #1 top crasher in today's build where it appeared for the first time. The regression window is:
It's probably a regression from bug 771251 as there are no Flash crashes in this build.

Review of attachment 641941 [details] [diff] [review]:

Kind of a bummer, I guess we'll just orphan these files? We should investigate why this winds up as a topcrash, presumably there must be some shutdown plugin topcrash.

Comment 4 Benjamin Smedberg [:bsmedberg] 2012-07-13 20:26:30 PDT
The outcome of IRC discussions is that this is a common shutdown crash that bc is seeing, and that this patch won't make it any worse.

Null-check, rev. 1

Bug caused by (feature/regressing bug #): bug 771251
User impact if declined: crashes (assuming we take bug 771251, which we really need for correct Flash crash reporting
Testing completed (on m-c, etc.): landed on m-c, should be verified by crash-stats tomorrow
Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): no risk (all the risk is in bug 771251)

Tracking for 15 which I think is what you're looking for here now, post merge.
