Send MOZ_APP_ID to crash reporter


(Toolkit :: Crash Reporting, defect)

Not set

Fennec using XUL and Fennec using android's native toolkit (Java) both have the same MOZ_APP_NAME.  They are both Fennec.  When a new platform comes out -- say windows phone -- and we want to port to Fennec, that application will also have the same MOZ_APP_NAME.

So, in order to separate these "different" applications, we want to use the MOZ_APP_ID.  This value is currently used by addons.  We want to send this value to the crash server so that they can key on this value.

Given the formatting of other values I have looked up in the code, I think we should use "AppID" or "AddonsAppId" for that parameter to send with crash reports (given that its original purpose is an identifier for add-ons, the latter might make sense).

When we are preparing to introduct a new app id, please make sure that a bug is filed with metrics as well since we will not automatically report on it unless we are notified.
ted: we are proceeding with this ASAP.  Please let me know when it's done.
We are going to use "ProductID" as the key.

This is consistent with the naming and case of other uses:
