Firefox 40 has been released to offer better support for Windows 10. There has been an interface change so that the browser works with the new OS, but all is not well because some users are saying that Firefox 40 crashes in Windows 10 after the update.

One of the known Firefox 40 issues on Windows 10 are the browser can crash if multiple tabs are openwell two or more. There is a temporary workaround for this, and that is to disable the hardware acceleration, or even open multiple windows rather than tabs until a fix is released.
