I can confirm this on another Nexus 7 which has just been updated to 4.2 (JOP40C).

Both the latest 17 beta and latest 19 nightly (2012-11-13 1b0226622e94) with a clean profile.

Additionally, the crash helper does not appear so no crash report can be submitted.

It's likely bug 802510.
Can you provide the crash ID from about:crashes or the logcat to confirm?

Comment 3

There's no entry in about:crashes and I can't get a logcat as my device isn't rooted (in android > 4.1 apps can only access their own log). I may be able to get the full logcat with a usb cable, but I don't have any handy at the moment.
