[B2G] [Buri] [1
.2] [Browser] Some links require opening new tabs, eventually causing a device crash
Description: Selecting links on some sites will force the user to open new tabs in order to continue. After 3 or 4 tabs are open, the device crashes. Repro Steps: 1) Updated Buri to Build ID: 20130822040202 2) Launch the Browser and navigate to a site with a list of links (eg youtube.com or yahoo.com). 3) Once the page loads, select a link and observe the appearance of the "Open link in new tab" option. 4) Tap the button and navigate to the newly opened page. 5) Repeat steps 3 and 4. Actual: After about 3 or 4 new tabs are created, the device crashes. Expected: The selected links cause the pages to be loaded with no requirement to open new tabs. All pages load with no errors.

This needs better STR with an actual site. I don't think the STR in comment 0 is the correct way to reproduce this.
Bug 900012 has the signature for this crash, but even though it is resolved fixed it is clear that there are still some other bugs tracking similar signatures - bug 902927 is one of them that is already nominated.
If part of the STR for this bug are that "clicking on links is broken" then that is bug 907977 and will be fixed shortly. As Fabrice said in bug 907977 comment 0, he was using long-tap and then "open in new tab" to navigate links, which is a workaround until that patch lands. If that is what ckreinbring was doing in comment 0 then that may be triggering some other crash that I know nothing about.
When the user has 3-6 open tabs on the browser and tries to open the tabs, FFOS crashes. This issue is found when user follows the steps below. Steps to reproduce: 1. Go to www. youtube.com 2. Press hold on the videos listed from the "Popular on youtube" videos list to open link in a new tab (In this case the links used where, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFHcl1d-mGg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MJIXdF1vDPk http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cdp5yCRHwKo) 3. Go to tabs and open the videos Buri Build ID: 20130821050136 Gecko: http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/b2486721572e Gaia: 70033ba9cbac65551f68fcb3a28f7daf3105e6ff Platform Version: 26.0a1 RIL Version: 01.01.00.019.190 Also, I was able to find a regression window for this bug. The crash started occurring on build from 08/21. Tested all the way to the build 8/11 where the user is able to to see a white screen with a progress bar when, selecting some links from the open tabs. This can be possibly related to the issue mentioned in comment 4.

Still unable to repro the issue, selecting a YouTube or Yahoo link causes that page to load without requiring a new tab to be opened. Verifying as Worksforme.
