Comment (by mcs):

 On OSX, you want to use lldb. If you do not have /usr/bin/lldb on your
 computer, you will need to install Xcode or maybe just the Xcode command
 line tools. Mozilla has some debugging instructions here:

 But maybe just start Tor Browser under lldb and see what is shown when it
 crashes. For example:
 cd ~/Desktop/TorBrowser.app
 lldb ./Contents/MacOS/firefox
 After the crash occurs, a useful command is `bt` (show backtrace).
