This is a new crash which first showed up on 2014-04-03 in Firefox 31.0a1. It's currently the #20 topcrash on Nightly so it's not yet in topcrash territory but we should probably keep an eye on it. 

Flagging this for QAWANTED to see if we can narrow down the regression window using tinderbox builds. There's only one comment so far and it mentions Instagram. 

Some prominent URLs include:

The majority of the crashes appear to happen on Windows 7.
Paul, can you please try to reproduce this and find a regression window if possible?

Looking more at the pushlog, bug 987127 might be a culprit. Chris, what do you think?
Flags: needinfo?(cpearce)
Looking at the code in WMFReader::ReadMetadata(), I think we could end up with a null WMFReader::mSourceReader if DXVA has been blacklisted (so WMFReader::mUseHWAccel is false) and WMFReader::CreateSourceReader() fails for some other reason (say trying to load a file with a blacklisted codec).

So we can just null-check WMFReader::mSourceReader after the CreateSourceReader() calls in to prevent this.

I couldn't make Firefox crash using any of the links in comment 0.

Dropping *wanted keywords since QA wasn't able to reproduce. We'll verify via crashstats a few days after this lands.
