Two notes regarding the attachment:

1) The Torbrowser patches are only responsible for 33 test failures, one is a bug on Mozilla's side tracked here:

2) The following test errors

/home/firefox/Tester/mozilla-esr17/testing/xpcshell/head.js:315 |
ReferenceError: run_test is not defined - See following stack:

and "TEST-UNEXPECTED-FAIL [...] 1 == 0 - See following stack:" won't probably show up if one retries running the XPCShell tests. I made the particular tests fail this way in order to be able to run the whole test suite and to produce the attached log: These tests just never finished (often a "too much recursion" error occurred) when they got run unmodified.
