Firefox users report UI and constant crashing issues after updating to Windows 10 May 2020 Update.
Yesterday we reported Google is looking into Chrome issues with Windows 10 2004 reported by users. Google Security researcher says new Microsoft Edge will also be plagued by these issues soon.
Here is what happened:
Users on Chrome help forum reported they’ve signed out of all sites whenever they restart Windows 10 and Chrome informs the users that “sync is paused”. The issue seems to trigger on Windows 10 PCs running the latest feature update.
Well! some Firefox users also having issues with the latest Windows 10 update. After updating to Firefox 77.0.1 and Windows 10 2004, a white bar is appearing above Firefox tabs on monitors, a user notes.
I have 2 monitors, one on top of the other, on the bottom I have a 1920×1080 monitor and on the top a 1440×900 monitor. My GPU is a Nvidia GTX 1060 FE 6Gb.
I just updated my Windows 10 Pro to version 2004 and Firefox to 77.0.1 and now I got an annoying bug (don’t know who’s fault is Firefox or Windows or both).
I have 2 Firefox windows, when I maximize one of them on the bottom screen I get a white bar on the bottom of the top screen (see attached image).
Another user reveals in a bug, Firefox Nightly is crashing constantly ever since updated Windows 10 to 2004 version.
The user says refreshing and running Nightly without extensions hasn’t helped. Affected user reports to Mozilla that he also received an “exception integer division by zero” error for Firefox.
Ever since updating to windows 10 May update it started crashing randomly, almost never generating any crash reports or errors.
This happend even after refreshing nightly and running without extensions. Haven’t tried reinstall yet.
The user also says on Reddit that all windows updates and Nvidia drivers are up to date and the latest.
One person running Firefox 77.0.1 claims uninstalling the Estonian-ID card plugin fixes the issue for him.
Another user reports on Reddit that the screen is flickering when scrolling the playing video in Firefox on the secondary screen. The reporter in the bug suggests disabling WebRender should fix this issue.
Odd flickering with hardware acceleration on Nvidia 446.14_Windows 10 2004, only fix atm is to disable HWA, but I would like to use it
