dispatchFormControlChangeEvent() dispatch an 'change' event, so a JavaScript code runs in it.
The JavaScriptCode can delete the parent <input>, and can change the type of the <input>.  So accessing element() after dispatchFormControlChangeEvent() causes a use-after-free.

You need to protect a reference of element() by RefPtr<> in order to keep <input> alive and in order to avoid 'this' access.
RefPtr<HTMLInputELement> input = element();
if (...)
    input->document()->axObjectCache()->postNotification(input->renderer(), ...
