Tobias is this something for you ? Or do you know who could take a look, thanks!

I can go ahead and track this for 51 and up, if we come up with a patch we can certainly consider uplifting since improving the OOM crash rate would be a good thing. 

Andrew can you help find someone to investigate? Thanks!

That crash-stat is showing us crashing deep inside DOM when doing a tiny allocation. Making that particular case fallible wouldn't be reasonable.

/me wonders how Tomcat managed to find that page. Results in a massive xml file from a small-ish Finnish sport happening :)
FWIW, the page crashes the child process on Chrome too.
I'm not sure how important XML issues are (and thus need to be tracked). Are these crashes frequent?

Too late for 51, mark 51 as won't fix.
Too late for 52 as well.
Dropping this for 53 since it does not seem actionable.
Is this anything you want to dig deeper into or shall we leave it alone?
Flags: needinfo?(bugs)
It is trivial to crash any browser (child process) by just creating more and more elements, so I don't see there anything we can do.
