Crash Data

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:14.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/14.0.1
Build ID: 20120713134347

Steps to reproduce:

We have our own javascript based spellchecker which accesses to our spellcheck service.  When our spellcheck is done in a editable body,  Firefox crashes.  The crash happens only with specific strings.

For example, if the user types the following 2 lines
Cc: amy, amy
then after running our spellchecker,  then Firefox crashes.

Actual results:

Firefox crashed after our spellchecker completed.
The crash-stat is here -

Looks like, after our spellcheck completed, updated the rich text area, and displayed window.alert with complete message,  Firefox's mozInlineSpellChecker started to run,  then Firefox crashed.

Expected results:

Firefox should not have crashed.
How can I reproduce the crash ?
Is a public testcase available ?

Hiroyuki-san, thank you for the detailed bug report.  I would very much like to
fix this bug for you, but unfortunately we haven't yet found a way to reproduce
the problem in Firefox, which makes the bug hard to analyze and fix.  Would you
to let us (Mozilla) use your spellchecker for the purpose of fixing this crash?

Also, does the problem still occur in the latest version of Firefox?
