Based on this stack I'm guessing that SlingPlayer is trying to mess with the browser's native window or its native view hierarchy. Plugins shouldn't be doing that and it won't work out of process.

We should contact the vendor and make them aware of this. We could also block the existing plugin for now if it doesn't work at all, in order to avoid the crash.
Actually, all these crashes happen in 32-bit mode, and seem to be in-process.
I filled out an online form on their site to inform them of the bug and asked to try to get a developer on it.
Adding [@ strlen | asprintf ] since this is the stack that is showing up in the RC crash stats. is the report with a comment related to Sling player.

It is #3 top crasher on Mac OS X in 4.0RC1.
Keywords: topcrash
I sent another email to the PR contact on the website.
Heard back from the product manager for and he is looking into the crashes.

The signature [@ objc_msgSend_stret | SlingPlayer@0x2304c ] doesn't appear on any version in the past 4 weeks. The second signature [@ strlen | asprintf ] appears in low volume with 3 crashes on 8.0 total. Removing the top crash keyword.

I'm marking this bug as WORKSFORME as bug crashlog signature didn't appear from a long time (over half year) in Firefox.
