Firefox 95.0.2 fixes crashes on systems with certain AMD processors

0


Mozilla Firefox 95.0.2 was released on December 19, 2021; it fixes a unique crash issue that affects some AMD processors on Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 devices.

The new version of the Firefox web browser comes just days after the release of Firefox 95.0.1, and about two weeks after the release of the last major version of 2021, Firefox 95.0.

Firefox 95.0.2 is already available. Installations should receive the browser update automatically, provided that automatic updates have not been turned off. Affected users, those using AMD devices that Firefox has crashed frequently recently, may want to run the update as soon as possible to resolve the issue.

Select Firefox menu> Help> About Firefox to view the installed version and check for updates. The new version should be picked up and installed automatically at this point.

The official Firefox 95.0.2 release notes list a single fix:

Resolves frequent crashes experienced by users with certain AMD processors running Windows 7, 8 and 8.1

The issue appears to affect Firefox running on Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 systems only. Only systems with AMD processors are affected, but the release notes do not provide more details on this.

Firefox ESR, the Extended Support Release version of the browser, is not affected by the issue. The latest version, Firefox ESR 91.4.1, is therefore not changed. It was released a few days ago alongside Firefox 95.0.1 to resolve a login issue that was affecting multiple Microsoft domains and two crashes in the Linux and Windows versions of the web browser respectively.

Firefox 95.0 was released on December 7, 2021. It marked the availability of Firefox in the Microsoft Store and introduced a number of improvements and fixes on top of that.

Interested Firefox users can view the official release notes on the Mozilla website.
