I haven't tried with testing, but this also happens with the official
Firefox 30.0, and the bug has already been reported (see forwarded).

The OCSP failures were actually not due to the crash, probably just
because there are too many reloads at the same time after a restart
with many tabs. Now, the real problem is that these failures remain
after a reload (a simple reload with Ctrl-R, but more importantly,
Ctrl-Shift-R to by-pass the cache doesn't even work, and one needs
to restart the browser again).
