This bug was filed from the Socorro interface and is report bp-fefc3617-7771-492f-8dae-b28d52110202 . ============================================================= Currently 3.6.13 topcrash #4, these are all EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION_WRITE in PR_AtomicIncrement called from mozillaps.dll which is part of the ShopperReports adware. Stacks look like PR_AtomicIncrement nsAString_internal::Assign nsHTMLDocument::GetElementsByTagName mozillaps.dll@0x290b Here's a post showing the malwarebytes detection http://www.overclock.net/networking-security/846696-prime-example-why-i-use-anti-2.html#post11038501 Adware is in the eyes of the beholder, the company presents itself as a useful toolbar addition (http://www.shopperreports.com/ ) but from disgruntled posts on the web it's pretty clear users generally don't know how they got it (it's bundled as a revenue source with other software). Extension appears to have the GUID firstname.lastname@example.org so we might be able to blocklist it on the basis of crashing (with exploitable-looking signatures). The crashy version appears to be 3.1.22

In a recent timeslice I only see one trunk PR_AtomicIncrement crash on a recent 4.0 beta. It had a different stack and doesn't appear to be associated with this ShopperReports add-on. Crashes inflict 3.5.16 though

It is similar to bug 630191 except that it is for 3.6.
According to bug 630191 comment 17, it is a dupe of bug 630191.
