any information on how the user upgraded? what .xpi was used?  what kind of
install was on machine that was 'upgraded'? 
I cannot reproduce using a typical install and adding chatzilla.xpi

is the .xpi compatible with build?  crash during/after install or next launch?

The user was installing that latest chatzilla, and the crash happend after the
install had completed.  Upon restart, the XPI was properly installed.  Every
version of chatzilla is compatible with every version of mozilla.  Beyond that,
any "incompatible" xpi should *not* crash the browser.

This looks like a memory magement problem, and is not likely to be 100%
reproducable.  There are a number of talkback reports with the same, or similar,
stack traces.  See also, bugs 175808 and 193757.

Going to close this as WFM per comment #4 and the fact that this bug has been untouched for over a year.
