Crashes Firefox 10.0.2

I've found a way to crash Firefox 10.0.2.

When dojoConfig.packages is not set properly and a corresponding package is requested in require() with "dojo/ready", Firefox 10.0.2 crashed.

Simply open the following web page in Firefox and it will crash.

I've also reported this problem to Firefox through Mozilla Crash Reporter.

It does not crash in 10.0.1. Note that it does not display the alert either but the console contains the following trace:

404 Not Found	669ms	
dojo.js (line 15)
"NetworkError: 404 Not Found -"
[Break On This Error]

Thanks for the verification. I done a more detailed test. It's correct that the alert won't be displayed.

The platform that Firefox will get crashed is as following:

  1. Windows 7 x64, Traditional Chinese version
  2. Firefox 10.0.2 x64 Traditional Chinese version

I've tested on 32bit Windows XP, both English and Chinese versions and Firefox works fine.

Will setup a VM to run Windows 7/x64/English and report back.

Can't reproduce on any of the following "cleanly" installed platform:

  1. Windows 7/64bit/English + Firefox 10.0.2 both Chinese/English?
  2. Windows 7/64bit/Chinese + Firefox 10.0.2 both Chinese

Not sure why it crashes my current platform. Seems like not related to dojo.

Ok, as it seems unrelated, I'm closing this. Please re-open if you have some indications this might come from Dojo?
