This test hits the network (because it opens a tab with a search query to the default search engine), and this generates an intentional crash because tests shouldn't be hitting the network. The theory that this doesn't happen in non-e10s is that the tab closing happens fast enough to cancel the network request, but that doesn't hold for e10s. The right fix is to make it use a test-engine that points to a mochi.test url. I moved it to browser/components/search to easily use a helper function. It appears this test was disabled on mac for being intermittent.. I ran it several times here and didn't see it happening, but I kept the skip-if == mac just in case to not have this bug backed out.
(ahh, wasted a nice bug number)
