        Description

        FULL PRODUCT VERSION :


        ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
        Windows 8.1

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        At Mozilla we got multiple reports about Firefox crashes related to the Java plugin.

        We tracked it down to the plugin calling _releaseObject (NPN_releaseobject) from a thread other than the main thread. This can race with our JS GC and cause Firefox crashes.

        This affects multiple companies and intranet websites.


        REPRODUCIBILITY :
        This bug can be reproduced often.
