Am not computer savvy, but know just enough to get by with performing most routine desktop usage tasks .. I am running Windows 8 on a Dell Inspiron 660 desktop which uses Intel's built in HD graphics 2500.
Up until Firefox update 82.0.2, I had no issues with Firefox whatsoever. Applying the update to 83.0 resulted in numerous error messages along the lines that my display driver had stopped responding (but successfully recovered).
While glancing through some of the event error logs, as best I recall having seen, at least one made a reference that Firefox could not access the graphics card (or something to that effect).
I then opted to perform a system restore and rolled back my system to where I was once again using Firefox update 82.0.2 successfully and without issues. FYI, I am using the last intel display driver available for my Dell, so updating my display driver isn't an option.
Unless and until others report a similar issue, guess I will continue using Firefox as updated to 82.0.2 and not downloading any further updates. Any comments would be appreciated.
