Description Brent Fulgham 2016-03-15 15:14:38 PDT
A double-release of a CFURLConnectionRef was identified in one of the WebDownload::init methods:

    CFURLConnectionRef connection = handle->connection();


    m_download = adoptCF(CFURLDownloadCreateAndStartWithLoadingConnection(0, connection, request.cfURLRequest(UpdateHTTPBody), response.cfURLResponse(), &client));


    // The CFURLDownload either starts successfully and retains the CFURLConnection, 
    // or it fails to creating and we have a now-useless connection with a dangling ref. 
    // Either way, we need to release the connection to balance out ref counts

The last line, the call to CFRelease(connection), is wrong and should be removed, because ResourceHandle::connection() just does 


CFURLDownloadCreateAndStartWithLoadingConnection() can retain the connection per the comment, while ResourceHandle:: releaseConnectionForDownload() lets go of the connection.

But then we release the connection via the raw pointer we stole from the ResourceHandle, as if we thought ResourceHandle::connection() returned a retained connection!

Note: It looks like this code is not tested in the LayoutTest system because the 'http/tests/downloads/' test suite is skipped on Windows due to missing DRT features.

Testing infrastructure on Windows is needed to avoid breaking this in the future. See Bug 155522.
