From this forum thread where I discovered this crasher:
https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/forum/1/628196

"I did every thing from going to safe mode to going to about:crashes it happens a lot when I'm looking at cards at http://gatherer.wizards.com/ I'm not sure what else to add."

oldtimer: this is an LSP, find the LSP and complain to its vendor, or if it's evil, complain to the user's AV vendor.

I don't see any signs of the LSP in the library list, so I'm going to say it's a hit an run LSP which probably means it's evil, or just plain stupid.

Please do NOT group LSP crashes with other platform crashes, any mac crashes in strncmp are distinct bugs.

Note that LSPs interface at the OS level and essentially have nothing to do w/ nspr/xpcom/necko. The only thing we can do is prevent them from loading. I have a patch somewhere which tries to do that.

right, if you have a live victim, please have him use https://developer.mozilla.org/en/How_to_get_a_stacktrace_with_WinDbg

we need the full log and it needs to be one from starting firefox with windbg. those tend to show hit and run cases.
