A Firefox add-on that adds crash signatures and attempts to diagnose add-on crashes
Version: 1.1Crash Report Helper is a Firefox add-on that puts crash signatures to about:crashes and attempts to diagnose add-on crashes.
Operating System: Mac OS X
In many cases when a user is having problems with crashes they aren't caused by the application itself, but rather an add-on installed for it.
The user may not have even installed the problem add-on intentionally. Crash Report Helper is an extension to help troubleshoot by automatically analyzing a submitted Mozilla crash report and attempting to point out when a plugin or a binary component of an extension is the cause of a crash.
The crashing add-on can then be easily disabled and the user can use this information to report the crash to the developers of the add-on. Application crashes or otherwise unidentified crashes can be more easily reported on a support forum or Bugzilla by posting the given crash ID and accompanying crash signature.
Crash Report Helper also augments the built in about:crashes page to list all signatures for past crash report submissions to make sorting through a long list of reports much easier. Diagnoses are attempted for each report allowing the user to see a full history of past crashes and their causes.
NOTE: The Crash Report Helper add-on is cross-platform and it works on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.
