  • Added about:compat, where website-specific workarounds are listed and may be toggled. These workarounds are meant as temporary fixes for various forms of website breakage for Firefox, while the website fixes them in due time. With about:compat, it is now easy to see all of the workarounds that are active in Firefox, and easy for website developers to disable a given workaround for testing purposes.
  • When an HTTPS error caused by antivirus software is detected, Firefox will attempt to automatically fix it
  • New reporting feature in about:addons allows you to easily report security and performance issues with extensions and themes
  • Find high quality, secure extensions via the Recommended Extensions program. Look for these vetted extensions in about:addons
  • WebRender is being enabled on Windows 10 desktops with AMD graphics
  • Access your Firefox Account settings from the hamburger menu
  • Added a Firefox shortcut in the Windows 10 taskbar for new installations
  • Preloading of intermediate TLS certificates is enabled in early beta builds, which avoids error pages in cases of server misconfiguration
  • Properly support BT601, BT709 and BT2020/2100 colorspaces on all platforms
  • In addition to providing color contrast information for individual elements of a page, Firefox now offers a full page color contrast audit that identifies all element on a page that fail color contrast checks.
  • Unified existing locales (bn-BD, bn-IN) under a single Bengali (bn) localization.
  • Removed unmaintained languages: Assamese (as), English - South Africa (en-ZA), Maithili (mai), Malayalam (ml), Odia (or). Existing users are migrated to the British English (en-GB) version of Firefox.
  • The AwesomeBar has been rewritten using Web Technologies only (HTML, JS and CSS). Differences include that results that overflow now have a nice fading effect instead of an ellipsis, and removing history items from the results now requires a different key combination on both Windows and Linux: Shift+DEL or Shift+Backspace

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.

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit Build 7600 / Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP3

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.

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.
