startup crash [@ strchr | XPT_DoCString]
potential 3.0b4 topcrash (currently #11)
some have "Processor Notes  WARNING: Json file missing Add-ons"

also seen in FF. 3.0aN through 3.5.x. some recent ones have exact same stack as TB
bp-2edf9b07-66a8-43ed-8fe8-b60242090923 "Angry, every day at least 10x crash!"  :)
bp-e8dd2c4c-c7d9-40f9-87ed-d6dd72090722 I think this happened when I put a google toolbar...
but literally all the comments I see simply stink.
almost all FF are windows, except for a few Mac (but didn't check stack) bp-b37e07c5-b754-437a-b289-a4a8d2090520

so, this is probably one of those places where it'd be nice to stash variables for crash analysis, i'd love to know what .xpt file this is.

wayne; can you see if you can contact these reporters?

These are only via crash-stats.com, so not possible for me to contact reporters.

But it's no longer a topcrash - just below 3.0b4's top 100. 
Thus likely to break into top 100 for 3.0final.

I agree, there is a spike in version 11 thunderbird - via examination of the last 4 months of crashes  However, the vast majority are duplicates, so this crash is quite rare for thunderbird
