Bug 1368343 - Be paranoid about null TabChild. r=billm, a=gchang I had a theory about what was happening (that we're somehow closing the window between the attempt to open the channel and the resulting OnStartRequest), but when I attempted to test that I couldn't make it crash (in fact, closing the window calls Cancel on the stream and stops the OnStartRequest from happening). So, I don't know what's causing this, but clearly we're failing to get a TabChild out, so let's stop crashing for the time being. MozReview-Commit-ID: LeGJCvh26dm
