Comment (by gk):

 Thanks to a script linked to by cacahuatl on IRC a while ago I was able to
 reliably reproduce the crash and look at possible fixes. The good news is
 Mozilla has fixed this (in two stages):

 First in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1117607 which fixes
 the crash but still has issues with ICO decoding.

 Second in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1196066 which seems
 to fix the remaining issues.

 So, this will be in ESR 45. Now, the bad news is that these fixes are too
 big to backport given that we are in full preparation for switching to ESR
 45 which binds almost all of our resources.

 Not sure yet if there is a smarter way handling this to get at least the
 crash fixed earlier.
