What OS / browser version / HTTPS-E version are you using?

I'm not the reporter of this bug, but I have those messages as well.

I use Firefox 29.0.1 (32 bit German) on Windows 7 SP1 (64bit German). The addon version is 3.5.1

[Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED) [nsILoadContext.associatedWindow]"  nsresult: "0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED)"  location: "JS frame :: file:///C:/Users/[redacted user]/AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/[redacted profile]/extensions/https-everywhere@eff.org/components/https-everywhere.js :: HTTPSEverywhere.prototype.getWindowForChannel :: line 424"  data: no]

This line contains:

let domWin = loadContext.associatedWindow;

It happened again, the browser was idle.

To give you some context I added a screenshot. Strangely in this case that it connected to google to retrieve information for safebrowsing. I'm unable to tell if that is just a coincidence or if those appeared together before. The console had much more entries, because I actually used it.

Update: The same message appeared once each after flashproxy gave my browser some clients to serve, but the connections failed. "Firefox can't establish a connection to ws://[IP4]:9000/". That is new. I reported this message as bug, once, but HTTPS-E did not throw exception.

2nd update: The same message appeared in rapid succession after visiting a website about Pi (π).

Could this be related to #11671? It's the same line of code.
