Installed it on 11/05/2015. No issues so far with my OS. v42.0.1 on Android is another story though. Crashes and stalls a lot.

Well, I must congratulate Mozilla Team, this version is way better than previous iterations, now HTML5 is more stable, yah, my VGA is still blacklisted, but you just tweak a pair of config values, and HD@60fps videos play smoothly. In general, the browser feels less sluggish.

Well done Mozilla!

New versions and updates every day now? I just installed FF ESR 38.5.2 and now a new version
43.0.2. I know that is a complete new version install but still, why go through this almost daily lately?

Well that screwed it up pretty well so off to reinstall my previous version.

Now back to where I was with all addons I put in enabled just as I like.
Security be damned but I ain't achang'n again.

FF v43.0.2 installed on 12/23/15. No issues with anything, including plugins and addons. Even seems to load a bit quicker.

If everyone's system was configured the same then the same success or failure rate would be the same.
But still it is amazing how some software can accommodate so many varieties of hardware and
configurations of addons and such. I just don't have the patience to fix something that ain't broke.
