Hi Cor-el, your tip disabling the graphics accelerator under options/general/advanced/ - un-checking "use hardware acceleration when available" seems to have fixed the NONSTOP FF 26 crashing - it would not even load enough to select safe mode in FF. It took me an HOUR XMAS day to figure this out and find your solution. Running W8 - Intel 7 - new $800 Toshiba POS Laptop [going back to costco after the 88 day return mark].

I hope FF knows that this and other bizarre changes to the UI (ditching DL bar etc) is what is sending herds of people to chrome, including me, very soon when they release Australis. I do not like anything by the cia owned google spy organization, but at least it does not crash like FF.

Once again you heave been a tremendous help! Even though you do not make a cent for all your time, this community greatly appreciates you.

Thank you X 100
