User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:17.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/17.0
Build ID: 20121128204232

Steps to reproduce:

Created a document with an iframe and object both with the url of about:blank, then created a function binding iframe.contentDocument.childNodes.item to object.contentDocument.childNodes and called the function.

Actual results:

Firefox crashes when xul.dll references a null pointer and tries to write to its location.

Expected results:

Calling the created function should have returned a childnode from object.contentDocument.

Not sure if this is exploitable, but was told I should mark it security sensitive just in case.  The crash actually happens after other problems as a bailout in the line number listed.  I expect the line number could be different as this is from the 17.0 source but it has been tested on 17.0.1.  Starting tomorrow I probably wont be around for a while so I thought I should put this out there before then.  I wish I had more time to actually bring something helpful to the table with these bugs.

Confirmed. I just crashed with shipped Firefox in a standard profile on OS X 10.8 with this: bp-f45d40cf-f5b6-4b75-a994-2cc972121203
Ever confirmed: true
As long as it's always null this should be a relatively safe crash. It's possible it _will_ always be either null or a valid pointer because of the way our nsCOMPtrs work, but that's just a general rule and may not apply to this case once it's investigated.

Matt: please run this test in an ASan build and attach the log here. That will give us more information about what's going on.

Does not crash latest nightly or Aurora, ASan or normal builds.

However, I created an ASan release build 17.0.1 so that we could have a symbolized stack trace - below.

Hmm.  I'm surprised this is even triggered in 17; I thought we used the WebIDL bindings there.

In any case, sounds like ListBase<LC>::getListObject needs to null-check after unwrapping?  Peter?

I'm not looking at the source atm but I remember seeing two conditional returns in the function mentioned above and neither gets triggered before the crash is.  My original thoughts on this were what happens to leave a null pointer in play, but you guys probably already have that figured out.
This does not look exploitable, unhiding. Since it doesn't occur in Aurora or nightly (19,20) do we want to just call this WORKSFORME and move on, or do you think we still need that null check?

Might want to add the null-check in 18, I guess, right?
Looks like this was in the old proxy bindings, so I doubt it's a problem anymore.
