Public bug reported:

Every now and then, whenever closing the lid on this laptop, Firefox
experiences a crash. This in turn launches the Mozilla Crash Reporter.
Whenever that is launched during the transition to freeze or hibernate,
Mozilla Crash Reporter prevents the laptop from going into freeze or
hibernate. Instead, the laptop remains powered up until the tool has
finished gathering its backtrace and sent the bug report. The lid then
needs to to be open and closed again for freeze or hibernate to take
place. This is is an extremely serious issue, because if the user
doesn't notice that the laptop hasn't succeeded at going into
freeze/hibernate, it will end up overheating during transport.
