Firefox 38.4 immediately crashes when running the java applet on
http://java.com/de/download/installed8.jsp

Does only happen with Firefox 38.4, not with 38.3.
Does happen with both Java 8.51 and 8.60.

100% reproducable. 
Experienced on two different PCs.

The enterprise mailing list has several reports that this also happens in other java applets.

This crash is showing NPAPI code being called off main thread. This is a plugin bug and needs to be reported to Oracle.
I have filed a report and it is awaiting triage.
I'm marking this bug as WONTFIX per bug #1269807.
