It's a low volume crash but there's a spike in crashes starting from 17.0a1/20120824. It has been hit by 10 users in less than one day.

GeckoApp.mAppContext.getLayerView() is returning null, probably because of an activity restart. This is likely a regression from bug 781220. Patch coming shortly.
