That is a good question.  We had this working before, but then we
discovered this new need-the-proxy-settings problem.  nmago, what have
you seen? Does the tor process shut down before the crash reporter can
do its thing?

One way you can test this is to hardcode the crash reporter to get the
proxy settings from an environment variable, launch tor browser,
figure out the listening port using netstat, and then set the
environment variable to the correct port.
