On android 4.2.2
Which browser version? Which device? Do you see the crash reporter? If so, are you submitting a report?

If not, can you please attach a logcat captured from your device and to this bug. In it, capture output from when you open Firefox:

Galaxy s4, 4.2.2 OS. I attached a log from when I open it and it crashes. Hope I did that properly. It doesn't give a choice of sending a report. It just closes.

Browser version 33.0
We'll want the full log not a screenshot of the application

May or may not help. Screen recorder was started. Firefox was opened, and nothing was pushed. Firefox crashed and the screen recorder was stopped.
Unfortunately there's not much of anything in that log related to Firefox. I've never used .logcat, can you set the log level to Verbose and filter on 'firefox' or 'gecko'?

If you're on a modern Android device, those logcat apps you download from the store won't give you anything useful. You need to use `adb` on a development machine, unfortunately.

I'm sorry. I don't know where to begin trying to use adb. If the logcat apps from the marketplace won't be helpful. I'm afraid I can't be much more help. Maybe someone in the same circumstance that knows what they're doing can help submit a log

I found an apk of version 32. I reinstalled that for now. Hopefully whatever is causing this is fixed in the future.

Sounds good. It would be interesting to know as well if you have any problems trying out Firefox Beta on Google Play; we'll be rolling that out as a normal Firefox update end of November.

It crashes on the beta as well. Yes.
