Points to the back-out of Bug 385270 = Bug 386584.
i don`t crash with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a8pre) Gecko/200708060505 Minefield/3.0a8pre on about:license

Only when i change the font size (Bug 386584). 

Reporter: do you crash when anytime when you open about:license or when you change the font size.

If you crash anytime without changing the frontsize, can you add a crashreport to this bug, see http://kb.mozillazine.org/Breakpad#Location_of_crash_reports

Sorry, i spent some time to recheck my report and should now correct it.
To reproduce crash your need:
1)Open Firefox
2)type about: in urlbar, press enter, wait to load page
3) Find "See the build configuration used for this version." string and open link  "build configuration" in NEW tab (use context menu)
4) After it, click on "licensing information" link and get actual crash.

About breakpads - after crash Breakpad shows up, but send nothing, sorry

Following the steps in comment 3, I am unable to reproduce this on Windows Vista with a clean profile and the latest nightly.

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9a9pre) Gecko/2007101005 Minefield/3.0a9pre ID:2007101005
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a8pre) Gecko/2007081205 Minefield/3.0a8pre

crash going to about:license

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a8pre) Gecko/2007082005 Minefield/3.0a8pre

no crash going to about:license or following steps in comment 3

Presumably fixed by bug 385270, resolving FIXED in keeping with the trend of other deps of bug 385270
