-> timdream for frontend assignee Jim, do you think this is fallout from the event dispatcher changes?
Looks like it's the "Bluhell Firewall" addon that's causing the crash, because it uses an invalid name when adding a menu item, which we ignored previously.

Based on the range and this comment, sounds like a fallout from your patch? Will you be able to get to it? Thanks.

This also affects beta and may turn out to be a bad issue on release. What patch do you think caused the problem? Must be something we uplifted for beta 11.
I only see this crash coming from installations with the "Bluhell Firewall" addon, which uses an invalid menu item name, so the impact should not be widespread. This simple patch fixes the issue.

Tracking to keep an eye on this after 53 release. I'm not considering it a release blocker though.

Can we request uplift to beta 54 and release 53 ASAP? also, QA verification would be good

30K crashes in Firefox 53 last week with this signature. We should uplift this to release in preparation for a dot release.

Devices: - LG G4 (Android 5.1.1); - Honor 8 (Android 6.0); - HTC 10 (Android 7.0); - Asus ZenPad 8 (Android 6.0.1). Build: 53.0.1 (Build 2) Based on Comment 2, I've verified this issue by disabling/enabling, opening and closing Firefox with the BluHell addon installed and everything seems to be fine, Firefox did not crash when initially installing the addon, all of the pages load correctly and none of the devices I've tested on have crashed.
