Startup crash in NS
This bug was filed from the Socorro interface and is report bp-cb093fb4-5788-4624-b780-81e0f0180315. ============================================================= Mac crash seen while looking at 59 release crash stats: http://bit.ly/2piOPoH. Present in 58.0.2 but in smaller numbers. Comments mention crashing after an update. Moz crash reason: u_init() failed Top 6 frames of crashing thread: 0 libmozglue.dylib MOZ_CrashOOL mfbt/Assertions.cpp:33 1 XUL NS_InitXPCOM2 xpcom/build/XPCOMInit.cpp:673 2 XUL XREMain::XRE_main toolkit/xre/nsAppRunner.cpp:1567 3 XUL XRE_main toolkit/xre/nsAppRunner.cpp:4933 4 firefox main browser/app/nsBrowserApp.cpp:231 5 firefox start =============================================================
It sounds like this is related to the initialization of the internationalization library.
I'd lay fair odds on folding ICU's data file directly into the binary fixing, or at least ameliorating, this. But just knowing u_init failed says effectively nothing to help with debugging whatever's specifically happening here.
Jeff, is there a bug for that? How can we get a better error message when this occurs?
Found it, bug 1445524. Hmm. Leaving this open as a P1.
Priority: -- → P1
Jeff, was this in fact fixed as foretold in comment 2? Is it too early to tell? etc.
Too early, seems like. I'd give it a week or two then loop back.
The desktop crashes appear to be gone as of the 3-28 build. There are still a few Fennec crashes in nightly, including one crash in 20180403100100.

I closed this prematurely. Still investigating.

We still have some crashes on Beta and Nightly with this signature and moz_crash_reason= "u_init() failed": https://bit.ly/2Lrjiew However, the number of crahes is way down from the spike in 58, so closing this one.
