Windows 10 upgraded and firefox freezed twice already

Posted

After I upgraded to Windows 10 today, Firefox seemed to work probably. But after awhile, Firefox would freeze. I had to close firefox and restarted it again. It happened twice today already.

Firefox 40 is slated for release tomorrow. It will have a lot of Win10 compatibility fixes that aren't in 39.0.3 .
