This is probably related to bug 790826.
It first appeared in 17.0a1/20120730. The regression range is:
It might be a regression from bug 744121.
Keywords: regression
OS: Windows NT → Windows 7
according to the signature summary I see a crash on each of the 2012082804 and 2012082903 builds; nothing in the regression range from comment 2 looks remotely suspicious. I suspect that or even a day earlier is more likely, and that this is likely a GC hazard somewhere in the plugin code, so we should be looking at both the JS/GC pushes as well as plugin pushes.
Depends on: 790826
It's #28 top browser crasher in 17.0a2 and #89 in 18.0a1.
Keywords: topcrash

This is currently at #25 in 17 topcrashers, could rise more once we're on Beta -- Benjamin have you had a chance to look into this more?

gfritzsche found this while working on something else, and I'm going to mark r+ here before checking it in! Woot.

Keep sDelayedReleases safe, rev. 1

Crashes disappeared on 12-Oct for nightly builds, woot.

[Approval Request Comment]
Bug caused by (feature/regressing bug #): Not sure, probably incremental GC.
User impact if declined: More crashes
Testing completed (on m-c, etc.): on nightly for a weekend, verified fix via crash-stats and some manual testing
Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): This patch appears quite safe to me; it's the equivalent of a null-check. The only real risk is a performance loss due to enumerating sDelayedReleases, but that shouldn't be a big array usually.
String or UUID changes made by this patch: none

Getting this landed early should give us time to gather feedback if there is any performance issue requiring this to be backed out.
