    Firefox 29 Crashes Link to this post

    HI All,

    A couple of clients (as well as myself) have noticed that using Silverstripe's admin in Firefox 29 causes it to crash on an alarmingly regular bases.

    Has anyone else had any issues with this? I am assuming it is to do with Firefox's JavaScript engine, as it always seem's to crash in the middle of an AJAX request...

    Cheers,

    Mo

    Yep. Can confirm -- but cannot reproduce.

    My crash log shows for FF29 Linux:
    - Signature: mozilla::dom::WrapNewBindingObjectHelper<nsRefPtr<nsIHTMLCollection>, true>::Wrap
    - Signature: mozilla::dom::ElementBinding::getElementsByTagName
    - Signature: nsContentList::WrapObject

    FF30 OSX:
    - Signature: StrReplaceRegexpRemove
    - Signature: XUL@0x1f87c10 I js::Shape::search(js::ExclusiveContext*, js::Shape*, jsid, js::Shape*** bool)

    Hi!

    I've got the same issue in Firefox 29 and 30 as well. I can reproduce it like this:

    1. Open the admin page
    2. Click an arbitrary page from the tree
    3. Switch to the settings tab of the page
    4. Switch back to the content tab
    5. Watch it crash
    (6. If it doesn't repeat step 3 and 4 until it does)

    @Intodevel that is pretty much the same process as me.

    Also, using ModelAdmin for more than a few Ajax requests is pretty much guaranteed to crash firefox...

    I've update my FF on Linux and now the crash report says:
    - Signature: js::jit::IonCannon

    What I find interesting is, that if I start FF in safe mode, then FF does not crash at all... However, if I disable my AddOns (NoScript, Firebug) or if I start FF with a new profile -- which should be the same as "safe mode", right -- FF keeps crashing again.

    FF30 exactly the same for me
    Switch to settings and then back to content a few times (take a few seconds after starting up to manifest)
    and bang - every time !
    Chrome is fine !
    Come on Mozilla we need better than this!

    I've just been into about:config in my FF30 and set javascript.options.baselinejit to false
    and it *seems* better .....
    worth a try?

    My FF30 is crashing all the time inside the CMS. I've tried the javascript.options.baselinejit=false and it seems to be ok. In fact, it seems a tiny bit faster! Not sure how it affects everything else though...
