If users report crashes in TB via Windows Error Reporting (WER) - they go to Microsoft where they are probably ignored. BUT, we can create an account and view these reports, for free I believe.

Thing link talks about the program:

To register we would need to follow these steps: which involve:

  1. Getting an EV code signing cert (done!)
  2. Signing a text file to prove ownship of said cert
  3. Creating an 'Azure AD Directory' account
  4. Sign 'Hardware Developer Legal Agreements

The agreements we would need to sign include:

I got access to this stuff for Firefox from Mozilla, so I have a little more experience with it now. It's likely I will be writing something for Mozilla to ingest these reports (which will be open source of course) so I will be able to adapt that for Tor I expect as well.

1) Create an account at
2) Agree to as part of the account creation
3) Sign the attached winqual.exe file
4) Upload it
5) ....?

Presumably there's agreements that come after #4 but I can't see them because I'm not creating a new company for Mozilla. (Nor do I have an EV code signing certificate, nor am I willing to pay to get one just to see the agreement.)

So I would request that if whomever legal-wise is okay with the first user account agreement, we perform the steps to see the next agreement and pursue this.
