Based upon [1], ~72% of crashes are from unique users. [2] suggests that we've had 3360 crashes thus far, so 2419*(10 throttle factor) users is 24190 users impacted. This isn't a startup crash, so we'll go out with the block tomorrow (morning?) once we have more data.

disable NT 6.2

The Windows string looks fine, but why '18.0b6+' ? From reading the AUS code it'll compare that config version to the appVersion in the snippets, which is a bare NN.0 even for betas. So it'll probably still work but '19.0' seems clearer (and won't block any 18.0 beta users on Win8).
This current patch will make updates for NT 6.2 100% impossible to obtain - not just manual. It will also affect beta, aurora, and nightly. We have two alternatives:
1) Fully throttle updates to all platforms
2) Fully disable updates to all Windows platforms (eg, not even manual updates would be available).

Alex, what say you?

For reference, we are already planning to do this option at some time today, based on the relman go. (I have a patch at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=715998)

Let's move forward with making updates for NT 6.2 impossible to obtain, and then backoff to manual only for all platforms at EOD. I think we've gotten enough data around bug 830531 at this point.

I think 19.0b1 would've worked too, but this is very temporary, should be fine.

As expected this also affects pre-release builds. Firefox 18.0b6 did not find any updates.

The patch to do this is in bug 841908, for the record. Still waiting on the go for that, though.
