Firefox 82 crashes due to antivirus software

Colleague Bodgan Popa reports in this article about crashes of Firefox 82, caused by antivirus software installed on Windows.  A bug report on Bugzilla says:

I've been on 81.0.1 build, I updated to Firefox 82 today and Firefox won't start anymore, I did an install refresh, did a reinstall, doesn't seems to work, I had an older version of Firefox developer edition installed which was working, today I updated it to 83 and it also won't start, I tried Firefox ESR 78.4.0esr which is working fine. suspect it has to do something with 82 changes. I'm in a windows machine with 1909 build 64 bit and have Symantec endpoint installed, it's a work lap and I tried reproducing the same issue in colleagues laptop with similar spec and he is also facing the same issue. could be an AV issue or driver issue.

Whether the bug is fixed in Firefox 82.0.1, I don't know at the moment.
