Bug found in a bug posting about a bug found within a test

Today, I was notified in regards to a bug found in a bug posting about a  bug found within a test – one of my tests, that I had previously been working on.

The bug found here, at #462794 outlines a bug where Browser chrome tests for session store closes the browser window.

In detail, by running the the following command:

python runtests.py --browser-chrome --test-path=browser/components/sessionstore

This would start the test and the bug herein lies that the main browser window would close along the way.

Luckily, the problem was found quickly and the issue resolved with –
Attachment Patch (id=346073) [details]

As a result, this is my first encounter with bugs found in a test or patch that is supposed to fix bugs.  Rather unique experience I must say, as I have not dealt with Bugzilla postings that fall into the exact category as the name of this blog posting.
