This update has been pushed to testing.
My test: run "MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND=1 firefox" (I have MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND=1 in /etc/environment), go to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GTK : select all text & copy it, go to http://paste.alacon.org/ and paste the text in the textarea. Then select again the text => Firefox exit immediately with gtk3-3.24.1-2.fc29.
Using gtk3-3.24.1-3.fc29, Firefox no longer crash. Good!
