Maybe.  Or maybe firefox bug.

Build with debug info, try to understand why it crashed, build
a minimal testcase out of it, attach it to the PR.
Or you could use a brute force method, if -march=corei7 works,
but -march=corei7-avx doesn't, do a binary search on firefox built with
some corei7 and some corei7-avx object files, until you find the problematic
compilation unit.
