Description juan becerra [:juanb] 2012-08-07 16:53:21 PDT
This bug was filed from the Socorro interface and is 
report bp-6f4979ac-095b-4a0b-9cbf-b6c4d2120807 .

1. Using Flash 11.4.400.252, go to and play a video like (N2 the Preppy Cat)
2. Click on the full screen video control
3. Let it play for a minute or so
4. Right click to bring up the context menu and choose "Pop Out"

Expected: Exit from full screen and an pop-out window that continues to play the video.

Actual: There's a full screen exit, and a pop-out window appears but Firefox hangs.

On a WinXP VM there's no way out of it, but quitting the app when it stops responding.

On a Win7 machine you get the above signature.

This is probably a case of bug 780658 and we'll probably need to dupe that one against this one, esp. once the reprocessing in bug 781005 has been done.

As shows, this accounts for ~60% of all crashes in this beta Flash version.

Sal, can you make sure this is in bugbase and somebody's looking at it?
Comment 5 Jeromie Clark 2012-08-09 11:09:23 PDT
This is Adobe internal 3306958.  We're treating this as our highest priority issue.
Comment 6 Jeromie Clark 2012-08-09 12:13:57 PDT
We believe this is already fixed in Flash Player 11.4.400.257, which went out via background update last night.  I'll send an installer to Benjamin and Juan for confirmation.

I have been testing this down in the lab on the same machine where I originally reprouduced the issue. Although I haven't yet reproduced with v .257, I have seen some odd behavior related to "popping out" on video on as well as some browser freezes when I try to switch tabs. Right now I am working on trying to get a screencast of what I am seeing.

The issue I have with the pop out context menu on is it does not work consistently on all videos.
Comment 8 juan becerra [:juanb] 2012-08-09 17:50:15 PDT
First, I went back to testing .252 on a WinXP and Win7 virtual machines, and I was able to reproduce the hang/crash respectively using Fx15b3. Then I tried .257 and I was able to reproduce the problem on WinXP, but I haven't been able to reproduce the problem on Win7.

A slight difference I noticed was that the context menu items didn't seem to be actionable for a little while when using the new version. On Win7 selecting the Pop Out item paused the video most of the times.

So this new version seems to prevent the crash at least on Win7.
Comment 9 Jeromie Clark 2012-08-09 18:58:57 PDT
We see a similar crash on WinXP, but the crash signature is different.  The Win7 crash was specific to ProtectedMode, and we're pretty confident that it's resolved.

Would you mind spinning up a new bug for the WinXP issue and providing some guidance on whether or not you consider that signature a stop-ship?
Comment 10 Jeromie Clark 2012-08-09 19:02:28 PDT
Quick correction, sorry.  We see a hang in WinXP but no crash.  We don't see the critical security impact that would warrant a stop-ship for XP.  If you guys disagree, please let me know so that I can surface it to my management for discussion.
Comment 11 Jeromie Clark 2012-08-09 19:39:32 PDT
@Marcia - we saw the same inconsistent behavior as well.  Context Menu is heinously difficult.  Our primary concern here is the crash, but we will want to further refine the context menu behavior in a future release.  

This one of those areas that would benefit greatly from a design meeting with Adobe and Mozilla.

It's #20 top crasher in 15.0b5, #31 in 16.0a2 and #47 in 17.0a1.
