 > You installed the latest EMET on an up-to-date Win 7, selected Max Sec,
 copied the ruleset for FF to TB's firefox.exe, disabled EAF in it,
 selected Audit Mode (or welcome SimExecFlow
 https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/13893#comment:56), and
 restarted the system. Then you did STR, right?

 Actually, no. I assumed as done in other comments in this ticket this was
 without EMET. So, I am marking this a duplicate of the EMET ticket
 (#13893). Please, file separate bugs for the other crashes making sure
 they are no duplicate. Having steps to reproduce them would rock.
