Has anyone tried to run address sanitizer builds of firefox on android? It would be great to have it running on try, especially with the late spike of mysterious jemalloc crashes in the webgl test suit on android in bug 1293249.

I have never tried, but I fantasize about it. It's a thing: https://source.android.com/devices/tech/debug/asan.html

Step 1) build with clang

This is totally a thing.  You just need to hack around bug 1255210, and specify clang as CC and CXX with -gcc-toolchain arguments.
(Bug 1163171 tracks building Fennec with clang.)
