Comment (by traumschule):

 short update, this is all I could get so far:
 $ ./firefox --version
 Mozilla Firefox 63.0a1
 ./firefox --debug
 ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 3022
 ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child
 ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal...
 [Child 2138, Chrome_ChildThread] WARNING: pipe error (3): Connection reset
 by peer: file
 line 356
 Bus error

 Looking into ways to [https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/77492
 /special-file-that-causes-i-o-error/144200#144200 simulate disk errors],
 like dm-flakey and
 e2fuzz] to avoid kernel panics and get the fs flagged as unclean. Firejail
 is another option.
