These started with yesterday's mozilla-central nightly.  They're already the #4 Mac topcrasher.

Chris, do you have any idea what's up?

Implied regression range ... if this is indeed our bug:

Chris, could this have been caused/triggered by the patches for bug 1114867?

Just looked again, and noticed that all these crashes are on OS X 10.7.5.

No. The code in bug 1114867 only runs on Windows.

I don't know why this would spike on Windows.

Jesup, and ideas?

Oddly, there still aren't any of these for m-c nightlies later than firefox-2015-01-06-03-02-01.  Maybe this was just some kind of fluke.

As best I can tell, these crashes were all submitted by the same person (on the same machine).  All reports have the same "install time" and the same list of extensions (mozmill@mozilla.com 2.0.9 and jsbridge@mozilla.com 3.0.3).

Henrik, was this you? :-)

No, but there are tests running manual and soon automatically with Mozmill for checking the GMP crash behavior. AFAIR Cosmin is working on it, so CC'ing him. I actually cannot find the appropriate bug. When querying Bugzilla I only see bug 1046052, but that's not Mozmill tests.

Ok, found it. It's bug 1113087 and it is indeed Cosmin who is working on it.
Flags: needinfo?(cosmin.malutan)
I just figured out this bug is probably nothing to worry about.  In fact these crashes probably resulted from setting media.gmp.plugin.crash to true in about:config :-)

So I'll set this bug WFM.  Please re-open if I'm wrong, and this is a real bug.

Yes, this is from running the moztrap https://moztrap.mozilla.org/manage/case/14441/ and setting the  media.gmp.plugin.crash preference to true.

Thanks, Cosmin, for letting me know.
