about:crashes does not function in the version of FireFox provided by ROSA. Can this be corrected?
Comment 1 Denis Silakov 2016-01-29 14:33:14 MSK
Crash reports are explicitly disabled in ROSA, as in many other distributions. The thing is that to make them really valuable, we should coordinate with Mozilla guys and provide them with up-to-date debug symbols for our packages - see for example discussion in the same Arch Linux task (https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/41994).

Conclusion in Arch Linux was that "Issues are usually also reproducible with the official upstream builds so you can use those to get a crash report." and we are going to follow this way, as well. In case you find FF issue and think that it should be reported upstream - please download upstream build and try to reproduce it there (or ROSA devs can do this by themeselves)

Otherwise mozilla devs will be really overloaded with debug packages from every Linux distribution...
