[Bug 1340841] [NEW] Firefox crashed w/o "Firefox crashed" report window.

Public bug reported:

Not much to say:  FF just disappeared.  No "crash report" window
appeared.  I used "ubuntu-bug  firefox" to initiate this report.

I had replied to a "WishList" style "bug" report for GPRename, that added text and two screenshots.
I clicked on each of the screenshots with a right-click, to bring each up in a separate tab.
I clicked on the first tab and was looking at the screenshot, when FF disappeared.

I am NOT using the latest FF:  Each time I have installed something
later than the one here, FF crashes as it tries to bring up all of my
many windows/tabs.   Since a crashing FF is not usable, I re-installed
the last version that does not crash (immediately).

It seems to me that the last few versions of FF have been rather...
fragile...  The FF Crash Report window has appeared much more often.  It
does not often crash without the window (as it did this time), but it
does happen occasionally.

Since I used ubuntu-bug to report this, the following is probably
superfluous, but here it is anyway...
