 Replying to [comment:16 bugzilla]:
 > Huh, of course, you can be sure you've fixed a bug without STR if you
 know what you're doing. Just reading the code and understanding the
 processes are enough to search, localize and fix the bugs. E.g. see
 https://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-esr45/source/configure.in#5448. Do you see
 that {{{-DPIC}}} is missing? So much time passed, so much testing
 passed... Where are the tickets? And what kind should they be? Just
 reports of random crashes in non-related tickets, and you've written that
 it's your preferred option... OK, if so, please, post here how you can do
 things like that, based on this example: how you do search in Bugzilla
 (criteria), how you detect that found tickets are caused by -DPIC
 underlying problem, and, of course, your STR for this issue! (And who told
 you that every bug had STR...)

 I think you misunderstood me. I was talking about STR in this context:
 crashes on closed source software which oneself cannot reproduce. Even if
 I think I have a fix and give it to a user to test she/he needs to have
 some steps to say, "Yes, it works" or "No, it does not work".

 I closed this ticket as duplicate because this seemed to be mainly about
