As stated by James on bug 1388249 comment 11 we might want to add a capability to prevent the injection of the crashreporter variables.

I would like to know first why this would be necessary. James, what are your concerns by having those injected by default all the time?

In general these environment variables aren't needed for geckodriver to function and things like that we typically allow to be configured. I'm not sure if there's a specific use case for testing where content crashes might be expected, but you can imagine testing Firefox itself might require that. Or maybe webapps will eventually want to ensure that they can deal with certain crashes that don't take down the entire browser.

In any case it's not a priority.

Ok, those cases would be really rare. Not a single test for Marionette including Firefox UI tests had the need for it.
