I've been debugging this off-and-on for several days now.  The
NSS code ends up smashing its own stack and the stack pointer
wanders off into la-la land.  Obviously not the easiest thing
to debug using gdb.

Anyway, the reason why mozilla-firebird is in testing without
arm is because it _never_ built on arm.
