[bugday-20140217]
Run attached code by "fun.exe Z:\path\to\xul.dll" then launch browser. That is step to reproduce non-informative message box.
Maybe some details for this bug.
main()
InitXPCOMGlue()
XPCOMGlueStartup()
XPCOMGlueLoad()
In this function you should have file "dependentlibs.list" with list of dependenced libs.
If you have no this file or have no one of files (which can be in this file),
in this case you can see error message "Couldn't load XPCOM"
Please take a look at this, maybe related to Bug 855881?
