So, this is that old "you can't ask a principal for its app ID if it's not in an app" issue.

Mounir, where do we go wrong in this callstack, exactly? It would be nice if it were better documented. Should nsPermissionManager::CommonTestPermission be called only for installed apps?

No. Apps will have an appId different from UNKNOWN_APP_ID and NO_APP_ID. In other words, > 0 (IIRC).

The assert is when the appId is UNKNOWN_APP_ID which is a way to say that we have no idea in which context this principal has been created. The ideal solution to fix this is to find out where this principal came from and set an appId that means something when it is created (NO_APP_ID being Firefox's appId). A less ideal solution would be to remove the assert and replace it with something less strong.

This is really a PITA. This same (?) issue bit us in bug 881996, and I had to figure out a workaround.

Who can own fixing this?

There haven't been TBPL posts about this in a while.  Is this still happening?

Doesn't appear that way. Not sure what might have changed around 9-15 to make this go away. Dolske, are you still having issues with this anywhere?
Flags: needinfo?(ryanvm) → needinfo?(dolske)
It's not happening on TBPL because I managed to work around it in bug 839961, and because bug 856470 can't even land until this is fixed.
Flags: needinfo?(dolske)
See also bug 881996.
Can you tell me how to reproduce this, Justin?

I tried reverting your workaround in bug 839961 [1] but the test still passes (I'm on Linux) with:

$ ./mach mochitest-chrome layout/base/tests/chrome/test_printpreview_bug396024.xul

Either reverting the patch in bug 839961 or applying the patch in bug bug 881996 should reproduce it. I don't remember what platforms it affected or if it was only Try.
