https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/about/throttling links about:crashes. Clicking it will show the following message in the error console:

Security Error: Content at https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/about/throttling may not load or link to about:crashes.

The text on the web page is:

Hello curious crasher!

You're seeing this page because the crash report you selected was held back from submission. For statistical purposes, we don't need every crash report and sometimes we decline the submission of a crash report as a form of throttling. If you'd like to see your crash report, simply click on its link in about:crashes and your report will be automatically submitted to our server where we'll give it priority processing.

Thank you for reporting your crashes.
"

Please update it, telling the user to type about:crashes into the location bar.

I'd like to replace this page with a redirect to SUMO at some point, FWIW. I have to write up a candidate page first.
