User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:17.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/17.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20130603110909

Steps to reproduce:

I went to http://www.shlomifish.org/nightly-firebug-crash-Solitairey/dest/dest/index-dev.html install the latest Firebug, enabled the Script console, and set up a breakpoint at application.js at the beginning of "function resize()" at the var declaration. Then I resized the window. The breakpoint was hit, and I started typing "active.game" in the Firebug watch expression input box. 

I'm using Firefox nightly Linux x86-64 bit (from the http://nightly.mozilla.org/ page) on Mageia Linux Cauldron x86-64.


Actual results:

Firefox crashes.


Expected results:

Firebug should behave properly.

Marking sec-moderate because it requires specific user intervention with Firebug, which probably mitigates the severity.

Hi all,

I received several additional notices to my email that this bug changed, but I don't see any changes on this bug. Where can I find them?

If you click on "history" in the upper right, it will show some additional things that you might be getting email about. In general, it will also generate mail when a blocking bug is closed, but that hasn't happened here.  In this case, you probably got them from people CCing themselves. You can adjust your bugzilla settings so you don't get emailed about such things.

Thanks for the info. I undertand that now.
Hi all,

I can no longer reproduce this crash (at least in its particular reproducing setting) with the latest Firefox Nightly. Now typing "active.game" completes fine and the watch displays "null".
