When loading e.g. about:config on fennec debug build: MOZ_Assert(24904): Assertion failure: typeAlloc->isArgument(), at /Users/dholbert/builds/fennec/mozilla/js/src/jit/LinearScan.cpp:595

 1. Install a fennec --enable-debug --disable-optimize build.
   (I built mine locally on Mac OS, using up-to-date mozilla-central (rev e89afc241513). I'm not sure if --disable-optimize matters; that's just what I had in my build)

 2. Visit about:config, in that fennec build.

ACTUAL RESULTS: immediate crash with:

I also hit this when loading the wired URL from bug 957006 comment 4.

(Not surprisingly, this issue goes away if I set javascript.options.ion.content to false, in all.js, and rebuild/package/install).

Ah, great find.  I think we were just hitting that assert in bug 943925 (independently of the central issue of the bug).

This should probably be high-priority, since it's popping up as a red herring in other bugs (and blocking debugging in other bugs, since this is fatal). At least, that's been the case for bug 957006 and bug 943925, it looks like.

(This is workaroundable with an all.js tweak, per comment 1, but that's not obvious when you hit this, and it requires a rebuild.)

gwagner says in IRC that he's hitting this on B2G (today, for the first time), as well. So, likely a recent regression.

This also happens on b2g when we start the phone with FTU and try to import facebook contacts.
A stack from b2g:

It's a bogus assert; the patch in bug 958432 removes it (and another assert). Can you try that patch and see if it patch fixes the test failures for you?

I pushed it to pine: https://tbpl.mozilla.org/?tree=Pine&showall=1&rev=c778a8f9def3
I'm hitting something similar, but different. nbp had a look at it on my laptop. Filed as bug 959126.
