This crash does not happen to me on a fresh x64 Win7 VM. It is possibly
an AV/other software conflict.

I got an off-list reply from someone claiming that this was due to a
system Tor being installed, and that the conflict happens even if the
system Tor is not running.

I am not sure how they arrived at this conclusion/diagnosis, so we
should try to reproduce it.

For everyone who is experiencing these crashes: Do you have a system tor
installed? If so, if you uninstall it and reboot, does TBB still crash?

I have the crash, so I uninstalled Tor and TBB still crashed. I got the file (US) from here: https://www.torproject.org/dist/torbrowser/3.0a1/
