Bug 1548525 added code to properly handle error codes returned from LaunchAndroidService, but it doesn't fix the root cause of these content process errors. snorp suggests GV crash itself closer to the error so we can stuff more diagnostic information in an exception report.

Bug 1555447 - Throw exceptions rather than returning 0 from r=rbarker!

Beta/Release Uplift Approval Request

  • User impact if declined: No immediate user impact; the purpose of this is to get better crash reporting for a top crasher so we can figure out what's happening.
  • Is this code covered by automated tests?: No
  • Has the fix been verified in Nightly?: No
  • Needs manual test from QE?: No
  • If yes, steps to reproduce: N/A; we don't have steps to reproduce this crash in the first place.
  • List of other uplifts needed: None
  • Risk to taking this patch: Low
  • Why is the change risky/not risky? (and alternatives if risky): It simply throws rather than returning an invalid pid from GeckoProcessManager.start() -- we'll crash either way, but with this patch we should have additional information in the crash report.
  • String changes made/needed: N/A
