 Replying to [comment:10 gk]:

 newer mingw-w64 versions that is not figured out yet if accessibility is

 Thanks! Adding `--disable-accessibility` allowed me to build Tor Browser
 8.0a8 with the newer mingw-w64 toolchain. The result is that this bug
 still occurs. At this point, I think it makes sense to try again to
 reproduce this problem in an ESR60-based Tor Browser, since I cannot think
 of a reason why we would not have the same problem there. When I tested
 before (see comment:6) I may have included extra logging which Kathy and I
 learned later can cause this bug to not occur.
