Well, I bother with firefox because of the facebook container
plugin, and I like the way menus work much better than chrome.
Besides that, before the most recent update of Jaws, chrome and
chromium-based edge would crash on my local news station kmiz.com
website. FF80 is purring like a kitten here with the latest
release of jaws.

Yes, there is a work around. It's called Google Chrome. To
be perfectly blunt, I don't understand why anyone still bothers
with Firefox. It is a screwed up mess, constantly crashes, and
seems to become less accessible with each successive release.
And most blind-friendly extensions like Webvisum and
Navigational Sounds no longer work. Mozilla betrayed its blind
users by promising a new era in accessibility when they hired
one of the developers of NVDA four years ago, but this has not
materialized. Whatever happened to this guy? Is he still with
Mozilla? Or did he get laid off along with 250 other employees?

Win10 version 1909, JAWS 2020 for August and Firefox 80.
Recently someone else on this list reported crashes with Mozilla
Firefox. At the time I didn't know what to think about the
problem but I am now encountering this and I noticed it after
Firefox updated to version 80. After a short period of time of
just navigating through a Web page Firefox reports that the tab
has crashed and presents me with a button to restore the tab.
These crashes are rather frequent. I only have one extension
running which is for Cisco Webex and I have disabled this
extension to see if this makes a difference. I'm not entirely
sure it's just a JAWS issue as I encountered this crash when
testing with NVDA although I so far haven't tried Firefox 80
with NVDA long enough to determine if the crashing is happening
as frequently. Have others noticed this and is there a
workaround for this?
