I couldn't open those per-message menus on in one chat (the largest I have) anymore, but in all other chats. I reset every pref I had, deleted cookies, website data and serviceworkers and it didn't help. But it worked in a fresh profile. Then I went back to my main profile and set dom.indexedDB.enabled;false and reloaded whatsapp and got this crash.

this signature is spiking up in the past few days across channels with many comments referring to youtube as source of the crash.
I got this since Dec. 05th
Only for youtube, on Linux and Windows.
Using µBlock on both machines.

one crash report from Windows:
I also am consistently getting this bug when visiting the youtube homepage.

Looks like there is a massive spike in occurrences of this bug since early December.
I just deinstalled FF and then reinstalled it -> crash occurs again for yt
deleting my ~/.mozilla directory was the solution
I made a bug report which seems to match this error - Firefox about:config option for "dom.indexedDB.enabled" set to False.

However, sites (such as Youtube) are still creating the directory and some files for their sites.. I had to manually disallow write access to the site-data folder for Youtube, which fixed the crashes since now Firefox can't write ANYTHING to that folder.
