I just checked a fix for one of those into Firefox yesterday. It wasn't considered a serious problem because the malloc would eventually fail safely, but it's better to predict the problem ahead of time and not even try to malloc all available memory. See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1368407 in which a tiny PNG file tries to claim Gigabytes of memory.
