Let me explain this bug and my patch.

This happened because RenderBlock::updateFirstLetter destroys text children of
the <button> but it doesn't update RenderButton::m_buttonText. Then,
m_buttonText will be used after free (so this can be a security issue?).

This doesn't happen for usual buttons because they are replaced elements.
RenderBlock::updateFirstLetter stops digging when it finds replaced elements.
However, this issue happens when a button is not inline because
RenderButton::styleDidChange calls setReplaced(isInline()) (to be honest, I
don't understand form elements aren't replaced elements when they are not

With my patch, RenderBlock::updateFirstLetter stops digging whenever it finds
button elements so we won't crash anymore. I'm not 100% sure if this is the
best fix, but I'm guessing this fix is OK as this patch only changes the
behavior of combination of button, display:block, and :first-letter.
