There are lots of these, though only on OS X.

They started with the firefox-2013-10-01-03-02-04-mozilla-central build, which implies the following regression range:

I suspect the patch for bug 903296.

These crashes have *not* been fixed by the patch for bug 920571.

Do you have any links to crash reports, URL's, STR etc?

This is almost certainly a regression from Bug 921233.

Ok, I guess this is because we have a DrawTargetCG created for the window CG context.

We try Snapshot it for PushGroupAndCopyBackground, and the SourceSurfaceCGBitmapContext constructor calls GetNativeSurface.

That then fails here (since it's not a bitmap context):

Jeff, do you any problems with allowing us to snapshot the window context?

I hit this crash when loading the test case from WebGL bug 924375 in a background tab.
Severity: normal → critical
Keywords: crash
Happened for us too on a OS X 10.6.8 while running Mozmill 2.0 automated tests.
Steps to reproduce using Mozmill 2.0 on a Mac with Nightly 27:
1. Get a mozmill-env from   (You need "")
2. Unzip mozmill-env
3. open a terminal
4. navigated using the terminal to the mozmill-env directory
5. enter " . bin/activate " from the mozmill-env folder (you should get a (mozmill-env) tag)
6. enter " mozmill -t tests/functional/testSearch/testSearchSelection.js -b <PATH_TO_FIREFOX_BINARY> "
  *change <PATH_TO_FIREFOX_BINARY> with your actual path to the Nightly firefox binary

We manage to reproduce this on a Mac 10.6.8 CI machine 4/5 times using the steps above. I am unable to reproduce it on a local 10.6.8 mac for yet unknown reasons.
To add to the steps:
- In order to get mozmill-tests add another step after 5:
  - 5.1 " hg clone " (do this from the mozmill-env folder)
     * this will get a repository with our mozmill automated tests that you will use at step 6.
  - 5.2 cd mozmill-tests  
     * we need to trigger step 6 from inside the mozmill-tests folder
btw, my STR in comment 5 hit this crash with 100% reproducibility on my MBP without needing to install Mozmill.

Don't use the window CGContext as a source with azure

I am also able to manually reproduce it with yesterdays Nightly build.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a Nightly build browser
2. Open about:config
3. Set to "true"
4. Open
5. Click the <a> here </a> link to install the engine
6. Select a piece of text and right click it
7. From the context menu click the "Search <ENGINE_NAME> <STRING>" option 

This causes a crash every few tries, around 2/10 times.
I can confirm that with the build specified in comment 13 we no longer have crashed neither manually or with mozmill tests. I have tested this by running over 20 tests with no failures with the new build and managed to reproduce it with 2 runs of the old build right after that.

Does that work?
