But it's obviously the same crash as bug #233578, so we only need one bug report open for it.

No they don't. There's no eolie anywhere in the first backtrace here, nor in the first backtrace in bug #233578, because it's a web process crash, not a UI process crash. They both crash in Nicosia::GCGLLayer::makeContextCurrent. It's the same issue.

You do see eolie in the unrelated UI process crashes that you posted in bug #233578, but those are different issues.

In this case, the cause is actually WebGL triggering switch to accelerated compositing mode.
