I was using my normal profile as usual, when all of a sudden while playing a video the browser locked up and then crashed. It now always crashes shortly after startup (about 30 seconds) with OOM.
Gian-Carlo or Monica, what can I do to help you out here? This crash is preventing me from using my default profile.

Same thing happens when restarting in Safe Mode

Can anyone verify if this bug is happening in release?
I had this happen multiple times nightly.. I disabled the about config tracking protection prefs (via editing my prefs file when crashed) and haven't seen one since.
I sent mail to my Google contacts and pointed them at this bug. FYI, catlee reported on #developers that release was hanging as well. I am trying to get more information on release crashes.
I was not seeing this, but turning on Tracking Protection crashed me almost immediately.  I turned it back off and things are fine again.
re-enabling TP made the problem recur (still nightly) - so its determinstic for me. I'll try release.
Summary: crash with OOM after startup in Safe Browsing → crash with OOM after startup with Tracking Protection enabled
This is not a Google issue, this is ours. It only affects people who have tracking protection enabled, and we pushed a server update today.

For now the workaround is to disable tracking protection. We will figure out how to fix or revert the server.
Flags: needinfo?(mmc)
confirm that it impacts my profile in release too.
I filed bug 1134885 for client-side robustness against broken updates.

If I understood the problem correctly, the crashes will stop as soon as the server is fixed and the clients *won't* be stuck with a corrupted database or something like that.

The crashed happened shortly after startup because that's when Firefox probes for updates.
The server rollback is complete and it will take a little while for DNS to catch up after the rollback. Please let me know if this fix didn't work.
Enough people have reported back that the rollback worked that I will mark as fix. There will be a postmortem coming.
