Details

Something like "the distributor of this application has disabled the crash reporter in this release" as text.
Flags: wanted1.9.2?
For reference, currently we don't enable the about:crashes URL at all unless crash reporting is enabled:
http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/docshell/base/nsAboutRedirector.cpp#73

And the content gets built in toolkit/crashreporter, which doesn't get built unless crash reporting is enabled:
http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/toolkit/crashreporter/jar.mn
Should we also encourage distros to put their own instructions for getting a stack trace into about:crashes?  (See also bug 447771)
"yes"
Flags: wanted1.9.2?
