Firefox gcc4.12 port fails assertion in posix/malloc/superblock.h:272

This is a gcc4.12 build.

I havn't investigated this much yet, it's bt goes thru BPrivate::processHeap::free() which makes me suspect it's a Haiku problem. See screendump from QEMU for bt.

The assert in question would be interesting, but usually, when an assertion fails in the allocator, it's a memory corruption problem of the user application (or memory freed twice).
