Here's another crash that's been hit a lot in Fedora, a SIGABRT when (presumably) starting Flash:
Downstream report: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1139316
Crash statistics: https://retrace.fedoraproject.org/faf/reports/426221/
Full backtrace: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=935404
Probably the same as this crash: https://retrace.fedoraproject.org/faf/reports/444412/
How can I try to reproduce it? Does it happen for any website having flash?
vrutkovs: mcatanzaro: sorry, no info, it just happened during the day of F21 usage
mcatanzaro: vrutkovs: Alas. OK, thanks.
vrutkovs: my workstation has been doing lots of background tasks recently so it might be one of these race condition bugs
mcatanzaro: Well there's over 900 reports so it's not just you.
I'll ask in the downstream bug in case someone else has noticed a pattern.
I managed to reproduce this, or at least a similar crash, because here it crashes in NetscapePlugin::initialize, like the bt in comment #2. The thing is that flash in crashing in NPP_GetValue when called with NPPVpluginCancelSrcStream.
#0 0x00007f6e52ecb873 in ?? () from /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/flash-mozilla.so

#4 0x0000000000b0569f in WebKit::WebProcessConnection::createPluginInternal(WebKit::PluginCreationParameters const&, bool&, bool&, unsigned int&) ()
Only adobe can know why, though, but the thing is that it only crashes for windowed plugins, adding wmode=opaque as parameter or not calling NPP_GetValue and always loading the source URL, fixes the crash and the flash thing works perfectly. So, the only thing I can think of is adding a plugin quirk to handle this specific case.
