._mutation Observer is undefined" from new tab page
Thanks, Jesse. (In reply to Jesse Ruderman from comment #0) > I think this is actually > http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/annotate/ad2a5a4f53ec/browser/base/ > content/newtab/page.js#l149 Yes, I'm seeing that, too. (Is there a bug on JS errors not reporting correct file names and line numbers for preprocessed files? I would really like to fix that.) This is easy to reproduce. Just set browser.newtabpage.enabled to false, restart, open a new tab, and then close it. The problem is that in _init, _mutationObserver is only defined if newtab is enabled, but on unload, _mutationObserver.disconnect() is unconditionally called. An alternative to this patch would be to define _mutationObserver in init (no leading underscore), which is called even if newtab is disabled. But I think this patch is better since _mutationObserver isn't needed if newtab is disabled.
