This started appearing in nightly 35 with the 20140911064110 build, so the regression should have been on 9/10.

For stats and more reports, see
This is the first build after bug 1064885 so I guess any regression range I can get will point to this as the cause and this is an e10s regression.
Note that those are crashes in content processes
Summary: Nightly crash in mozilla::OffTheBooksMutex::Lock() during crash reporting → content process crash in mozilla::OffTheBooksMutex::Lock() during crash reporting
Related: bug 1050210, bug 820716 comment 65, bug 820716 comment 71, bug 641685. The main problem here is that we have nested child processes (plugin processes as children of content processes) and we don't set crash reporting up to handle that properly. bug 641685 is going to make us stop doing that, but in the meantime we should probably just hack around that so we don't put ourselves in that broken scenario.
Happened for me once today as I was testing various settings on these preferences in about:config:
for bug #1064864
I crashed with this signature after disabling e10s in the Nightly options before restarting to apply

In bug 1081686, the reporter posted a link which crashes FF with this signature.

1) Go to
2) Click `Play with the machine' (or any other means of playing a chess game)
3) Start the game

I didn't detect any behavior which would trigger this. Happens even when I'm not doing anything in the browser.
e10s-m3 is long over - re-nomming.
This doesn't seem to be happening anymore in 37.
