Crash reporter often generates empty (0 kb) dump (dmp) files

My Firefox crashes quite often, but that's not the topic of this question. The problem is that often when it crashes, an empty dmp file is generated which causes the crash reporter not to submit the crash report. I have used the about:crashes page to submit pending reports that had non-empty dmp files, but not one report with an empty one got submitted.

I think this (generating empty dmp files) is a bug that needs to be solved to better solve other bugs. Can anyone give me any information about this bug (preferably how to fix it)? Should I post a bug report to Bugzilla?

A few times a week
