It looks like we have imperfect detection of Optimus DLL injection under bug 1218473. Until I find out why that is the case, I think we should force the CreateWindowExW interception to be a detour. This will definitively prevent further crashes even if the Optimus detection fails.
Actually this is IPC
Component: Plug-ins → IPC
Summary: Force CreateWindowExW interception to be a detour → Force CreateWindow interception to be a detour
[Tracking Requested - why for this release]: this might be needed as addition to fix the nasty nvidia optimus crash in bug 1218473 for good, see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1218473#c81. this is making up over 5% of crashes in rc1 atm, after it had already gone away in 44 beta 8 & 9.
