I guess we need a debug version of firefox built and a copy of the core
dump from the crash. I was going to do that but haven't made time.

In the mean time, you might consider having two profiles, one where you
use skia for and and the other one default. Not ideal,
but as a temporary workaround that lets you use both sites until the
issue is solved.

Since SeaMonkey hasn't been updated, I'm wonder if the issue existed in
the older version of Firefox too.
