Description

17 years ago
Steps to reproduce:
1. Load http://www.cs.hmc.edu/~jruderma/s/.
2. Click the link to http://www.plastic.com/ or press Alt+I to activate the 
link.
3. Right after the throbber pauses and the title bar text changes, close the 
window (Alt+F4 or bonk the X).

Note: it doesn't matter whether the window you do this with is your only 
Mozilla window.

Result:
- In an 07/09 nightly, the window reappears for an instant a little bit after 
it "closed", and then disappears again.
- In a debug build, I get three identical assertions about globalObject being 
null from nsWebShellWindow::ConvertWebShellToDOMWindow.

I tried this several times, using slightly different timing and methodology (X-
bonking vs alt-F4), with a debug build made this morning. No assertions, no 
problems. Which is kind of surprising really; I expect troubles closing a window 
while it's loading. But shining colours happened instead.
