We should generate and send a unique user id with crash reports.  I think the simplest implementation of this would be:
- Store the ID in $APPDATA/Mozilla/Firefox/Crash Reports/ID (or other platform equivalents)
- If that file doesn't exist on startup, generate a new ID and store it in that file
- On startup, read that file and AnnotateCrashReport('UserID', id)
Only tested on Windows currently, but it works fine there.
