On current m-c, the app opens, throws "Assertion failure: aImage.type() == SurfaceDescriptor::TShmem, at /path/to/gfx/layers/d3d11/TextureD3D11.cpp:302" then crashes, even when ignored.

This does not happen when OMTC is explicitly disabled in the app with:
pref("layers.offmainthreadcomposition.enabled", false);

As discussed with bbondy on IRC, we should disable OMTC automatically when running the app under -metrodesktop mode.
Can you provide a crash ID from about:crashes?

This doesn't block any release. The work around is to disable omtc.

Hm. I can't replicate this anymore on a more recent m-c build. And I can't seem to find anything under about:crashes on the machine that this cropped up on (presumably because I cleared the profile when testing something).

Closing as workforme for now.

Deleting your profile doesn't delete your crash IDs that are in another folder: %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Crash Reports\submitted
