Ok, people on liberation-tech are reporting that they can run the bundle
if they right-click on it and go to "Properties->Compatibilty->Run in
Windows XP Compatibility mode."

If 'Compatibility Mode' works, While in compatibility mode, can you try
setting one or both of these to 'true' in about:config:


Then try without XP compatibility mode, and see if one or both allow you
to run without crashes?

It also looks like Mozilla hit a similar bug some years ago, and
maintains a blacklist of bad D2D drivers to disable D2D for:

I wonder if we somehow didn't pick up their D2D driver blacklist in this
