Thanks for the report. Do you have any more context that could give us ways to reproduce your problem) Like the website you had open while this happened? Whether you changed the security slider level? etc.

Unfortunately, the crashlog was all I had. In particular, I do not remember what site I was on when this crash occurred.

Regarding the security slider, I don't ever recall messing with it when I installed 7.5a2, but when I went to check it just now, I got the following message in the Security Settings window:

Your custom browser preferences have resulted in unusual security settings. For security and privacy reasons, we recommend you choose one of the default security levels.

I have no idea what security settings I could have changed. The only specific tweak I've done was to add a second SocksPort entry to torrc for stream isolation. I'm not sure this would be considered a security setting per se, but in any case I'm pretty sure I've seen the security slider working normally even with the modified torrc in place.

Anyway, I'll try restoring the default security level and report back if I get another crash.
