 sandbox. I used all the non-__try patches from
 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1230910 (including the one
 that just annihilates SmartStub) AND I commented out all __try blocks so
 it should just crash immediately.

 believe) wasn't doing anything. youtube.com showed some messed up
 rendering on the homepage even without e10s/sbox though:

 FWIW: I tested a build using the attached patch + the small fixup needed.
 And the build worked fine for me until I tried to enable e10s. I wonder
 whether that helps to explain your Youtube issues. Or does my build


 cause the same effects on your testing machine?
