If possible we should try to grab about:memory dumps from OOM crashes and analyze them to see what (if anything) is taking up too much memory, and further optimize/patch that area.
Dumping about:memory on OOM is very hard; we need memory to dump about:memory, and anyway, we could get an OOM signal at literally any point in time, and it's not necessarily safe to start an about:memory dump at any point in time.

If you could get some early warning, then you could use the work in bug 788021 to dump about:memory to disk.

If we can get about:memory dumps in low-memory situations it would still be useful but as it stands we probably won't get around to doing this, so I'll mark this bug closed.
