I recently built & installed firefox-29.0,1 with debugging information.

That was just a day or so ago.

It has already dumped core twice.

Here is some info from the most recent one:

Core was generated by `firefox'.
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.
#0  0x000000080125024c in thr_kill () from /lib/
(gdb) where

#7  0x0000000000000000 in ?? ()

So, um, should I file a PR, or what?

P.S.  Do any of the chaps who work on the FreeBSD port of Firefox ever
themselves try to build it and then run it with debugging info enabled?
