Sub Tasks

Description
FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
java version "1.6.0_10-ea"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_10-ea-b11)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 11.0-b11, mixed mode, sharing)

ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
Current Firefox trunk version or SeaMonkey trunk version

A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
With the following test case Firefox crashes. I believe the new Java plugin is to blame here:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?xml-stylesheet href="chrome://global/skin/" type="text/css"?>
<window
    orient="horizontal"
    xmlns="http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul">

<script>
var jsenv = new Object();
jsenv.HAS_JAVA = (typeof java == "object");
</script>
</window>

If I execute this JS code within a normal HTML document, it does not crash. Within a XUL document it crashes.

STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
1. Save the test case as javacrash.xul (the .xul extension is important here)
2. Open the test case in a current Firefox trunk build or beta version
3. Watch it crash

EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
EXPECTED -
Not crash.
ACTUAL -
It crashes ;-).

SUGGESTED FIX

http://sa.sfbay.sun.com/projects/deployment_data/6u10/6669444.1
testcase: http://j2se.east.sun.com/deployment/www/tests/1.6.0_10/6669444/

EVALUATION

The test case uses a Firefox-specific kind of XML document which
behaves slightly differently than normal web pages with respect to the
Java Plug-In. Added more error checking to the native code which
fetches the document base upon plugin initialization. Also revised
this fix after the fix for 6675834.
