I need someone to confirm this, since I only have one Win2k installation. When I run crash-me.xpi with "Stack Overflow!" for the litmus testcase in the Windows BTF for FF3.5rc2b2, Windows 2000 does not load Breakpad, but it says that the crash reporter could not be loaded. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1) Gecko/20090616 Firefox/3.5 I will post a link to the testcase result after I have the id number of this bug.
Here is the testcase result: https://litmus.mozilla.org/single_result.cgi?id=191967
Breakpad doesn't support Windows 2000 by default, since Win2k doesn't ship with DbgHelp.dll. We don't have any plans to implement support. You can download DbgHelp.dll from Microsoft and it will work.

we should provide a relnote somewhere... for w2k, you can either follow the instructions here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/How_to_get_a_stacktrace_with_WinDbg (which will let you get stack traces directly) or you follow enough of the instructions to install windbg, then copy the libraries you need and let breakpad work.
