By far the most common cause of crash reports for Aquamacs is a bug in handling input in the Save As… dialog. I think, but I’m not sure, that the problem involves the arrow keys and Emacs movement keys. If you want to edit the filename, the safest thing may be to delete it and try again. Inconvenient, I know. 

I also think this one is fixed in the upcoming 3.6 release, which I hope to have available in a few weeks.

If you’re feeling daring, the fix is in the current nightly build, available through https://aquamacs.org/nightlies.html. Some people have said that things are working better for them if they use it.
