I find that Firefox 83 and JAWS 2021 work fine, though I'll experience an occasional crash.  I find FF faster than Edge, surprisingly, when loading pages.  I've also found that browsers and apps load faster using the desktop icons than using alt/control and a letter to open them. 

I have found that FF works best on some sites while Edge Chrome works better on others.  In particular, page material is occasionally presented differently in the two browsers.  All the more reason to have at least two browsers.

It was crashing a bit a couple of Firefox versions back, but for me, it seems prettys table now. It still loads pages slower and is generally less “snappy” than chrome, but Chrome tends to crash if I leave the window for a good amount of time and then return to it – Chrome is comletely unresponsive. This seems *fairly8 consistent actually. Firefox is just a bit off a slow browser it seems, but it’s pretty dependable for me on my Windows 10 machine running JAWS 2018 and NVDA 2020.2. There are definite advantages to using both though. I’m certainly using Chrome more than I used to.

Heya folks,


Just recently went to Windows 10 and have found firefox crashing with that latest Jaws 2020 where it did not crash on my Windows 7 PC, anyone else having this issue?
