Comment (by pospeselr):

 So after applying patches in (
 https://bug1520177.bmoattachments.org/attachment.cgi?id=9039768 ) I've a
 working (albeit hacked together) build working with NVDA on Windows 10.
 The strange thing is that Mozilla folks are reporting a crash in their
 build with the same patches applied, so I'm a bit confused.  It's possible
 there is a bug in the version of mingw they are using that I haven't hit,
 will investigate further.
