User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0 Build ID: 20150318004012 Steps to reproduce: I hanged Nightly 64 bits. Ran crashfirefox.exe . Actual results: Nothing happened ("Could not create remote thread."). Expected results: Nightly 64bits should have crashed.
Compiling for 64 bits on VS2013 solved the problem. We thus need a crashfirefox64.exe
Summary: crashfirefox doesn't work with Nightly 64 bit ("Could not create remote thread.") → crashfirefox needs a 64 bits version for Nightly 64 bits
¡Hola Benjamin! Is this something you could please help fix? ¡Gracias! Alex
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
https://github.com/bsmedberg/crashfirefox-intentionally is the code. You can build it yourself pretty easily.
I did it (build it myself). I was thinking of less savvy users trying to debug hangs, when Firefox 'official' goes 64 bits.

You need to have Visual Studio installed, clone the repo in https://github.com/bsmedberg/crashfirefox-intentionally.git and build it in 64 bits.
Existing 'official' resources which lack the 64-bit version: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/How_to_Report_a_Hung_Firefox#Windows https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/utilities/crashfirefox-intentionally/

Summary: crashfirefox needs a 64 bits version for Nightly 64 bits → Publish a 64-bit version of crashfirefox.exe for Nightly 64 bits
Version: 39 Branch → Trunk
I spent a few minutes futzing with AppVeyor and got it to spit out a 64-bit build: https://ci.appveyor.com/project/luser/crashfirefox-intentionally/build/job/oe0b55ardbgfkcuc/artifacts
¡Hola Ted! Could you please put a copy over at https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/utilities/crashfirefox-intentionally/ ? Now that blog posts such as https://blog.mozilla.org/nnethercote/2016/07/22/firefox-64-bit-for-windows-can-take-advantage-of-more-memory/ might spike 64 bit usage it might become handy IMHO. ¡Gracias! Alex
I don't actually know the process for doing that, but the binary from comment 9 is still there: https://ci.appveyor.com/api/buildjobs/oe0b55ardbgfkcuc/artifacts/x64/Release/crashfirefox.exe
bsmedberg: do you remember how you got the crashfirefox.exe binary published? Should be easy enough to grab the new binary and put it there as "crashfirefox64.exe" or something like that.
I think I filed a releng bug and bhearsum put it up.
¡Hola Ben! Could you please put https://ci.appveyor.com/api/buildjobs/oe0b55ardbgfkcuc/artifacts/x64/Release/crashfirefox.exe over at https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/utilities/crashfirefox-intentionally/ ? ¡Gracias! Alex

Oremj or Jbuck, can one of you help out here? I'm not sure how we normally do one off uploads like this in the S3 world.
I have uploaded crashfirefox64.exe to https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/utilities/crashfirefox-intentionally/crashfirefox64.exe
