Firefox Update Fixes Crashes

Mozilla’s developer team has been hard at work updating Firefox after multiple reports of crashes.

Named 80.0.1, this update contains the correction of the browser crashing due to a GPU reset. And although these issues first began a few days ago, sources have stated that the GPU issues have occurred several months ago.

According to Mozilla’s release note, additional fixes included:
  • Fixed a performance regression when encountering new intermediate CA certificates (bug 1661543)
  • Fixed crashes possibly related to GPU resets (bug 1627616)
  • Fixed rendering on some sites using WebGL (bug 1659225)
  • Fixed the zoom-in keyboard shortcut on Japanese language builds (bug 1661895)
  • Fixed download issues related to extensions and cookies (bug 1655190)

Once the browser update is complete on your PC, it’s recommended you restart Firefox to finalize the changes in it’s entirety.

If you don’t have Firefox, you can simply download the newest version of Firefox on their website.
