Launching Firefox under lldb while an existing instance of Firefox is running causes the new process to crash
Steps to reproduce: 1. Launch an instance of Firefox Nightly. 2. From Terminal, launch another instance under lldb, like this: > $ lldb /Applications/Firefox\ Nightly.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox > ... > Current executable set to '/Applications/Firefox Nightly.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox' (x86_64). > (lldb) run > Process 34735 launched: '/Applications/Firefox Nightly.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox' (x86_64) > Process 34735 exited with status = 6 (0x00000006) > (lldb) Expected results: Either the existing instance should be brought to the foreground, maybe with a new window opened, or a new instance should be launched. Actual results: The new process crashes. It doesn't seem to crash when launched outside of lldb. The crash is caught by the crash reporter; here's an example report: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/c5c54e68-c9ac-462a-82b5-5e9fa0181211
Also a regression from bug 469990, most likely.
