 GDB is a debugging tool that helps figuring out where exactly the problem
 for your crashes lies by printing stack traces of the crash to your
 terminal. Not sure about your Linux environment but you might need to
 install it first with the package manager of your choice.

 Then we have
 There `Using Debug Symbols` and `Starting firefox from inside gdb` should
 be the sections you need.

 If you have Tor Browser running under gdb then try to get it crashes as
 usual. Now, stack traces should show up in your terminal. Please add them
 to this ticket, thanks!
