Comment (by heywoodj123@…):

 Unfortunately, the crashlog was all I had. In particular, I do not
 remember what site I was on when this crash occurred.

 Regarding the security slider, I don't ever recall messing with it when I
 installed 7.5a2, but when I went to check it just now, I got the following
 message in the Security Settings window:

   ''Your custom browser preferences have resulted in unusual security
 settings. For security and privacy reasons, we recommend you choose one of
 the default security levels.''

 I have no idea what security settings I could have changed. The only
 specific tweak I've done was to add a second SocksPort entry to torrc for
 stream isolation. I'm not sure this would be considered a security setting
 per se, but in any case I'm pretty sure I've seen the security slider
 working normally even with the modified torrc in place.

 Anyway, I'll try restoring the default security level and report back if I
 get another crash.
