Crash Data

This bug was filed from the Socorro interface and is
report bp-992b4607-b61d-4f31-a62a-7b7d60181009.

Seen while looking at release crash stats: Mac crash that appears to be affecting 10.14 users primarily. Users mention lots of tab crashes:

*keep getting Gah. Your tab just crashed I am unable to use my browser 
*Every time I open a new tab it crashes! Already deleted all cache, cookies, etc., ad relaunched Firefox, but it's still happening. Next I'll try creating a new profile. 

Although this is not huge volume now, it will be interesting to track this as 10.14 continues to roll out. No crashes seen on 64, but seen on 63 and 62.

Seems very similar to bug 1493743; I suspect it may be the same underlying issue.

No crashes in v64 (when bug 1493743 was fixed). So presumably this was fixed by the fix for bug 1493743.

Bug 1493743 is marked as esr60:unaffected, but this crash signature is showing up there. Is that patch likely to help on that branch too?
