Starting with Firefox 29, regular expressions with more than 999998 groups will not work, rather raise an
InternalError say “an error occurred while executing regular expression”. This change aims to improve both performance and security by preventing the counters from being overflowed. See Egor Homakov’s blog post for details.
Regressions from this change have been reported that some specific regular expressions wrongly cause an
InternalError where the regex previously claimed “no match” even if they should be matched. It has been discovered that the
trim function in older versions of jQuery is also affected. This issue has been fixed with Firefox 30.
