Plugin Crash Logs on Mac OS X?

H
I'm developing a netscape plugin and for some reasons it crashes.  I'm not able to find the crash logs though I've made
$  defaults write org.mozilla. firefox OSCrashReporter -bool true

I tried even deleting the crashreporter.app, still I could not find the plugin-container crash logs.

Is there any-ways to dump the crashes on my local computer.  I know about:crashes would show the crashed logs, but I need the logs on Mac OS X crash format.

Just to make sure, have you used the command without the space before
"firefox", i.e.:
   $  defaults write org.mozilla.firefox OSCrashReporter -bool true
... and restarted Firefox?

Does it work when running with the crash reporter disabled via an
environment variable? E.g. something like:
   $ MOZ_CRASHREPORTER_DISABLE=1
/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin

Is it a crash or a hang? We kill the plugin-container after a timeout
(dom.ipc.plugins.timeoutSecs), in which case the signature for the
linked crash report from about:crashes will start with "hang".

If it's a crash, can't you attach your debugger (e.g. Xcode) to the
plugin container and catch it there?
