I periodically debug about:tabcrashed. Bug 1240142 made it so that by default, the crash reporter is not enabled when using ./mach run. I totally agree with that decision, but when debugging about:tabcrashed, it's actually kind of annoying. In order to properly test our crash reporting infrastructure when using ./mach run, I have to manually edit python/mozbuild/mozbuild/mach_commands.py to get rid of the MOZ_CRASHREPORTER_DISABLE environment variable.

I'd like to add a --enable-crash-reporter to ./mach run which will allow me to create crash reports when using ./mach run.
