You seem to be having a major issue with that Federal 1040 Form, my friend.
This time I can't give you a suggestion for this software-recommendation issue.
Turbotax (free edition), somehow, seems to be running perfectly in google-chrome (as it seems to be a browser based application). I just found a couple of warnings when I tried to register using google-chrome and they were about the suggestion of using a stable (non-beta) version of some browsers which includes Google-Chrome, Firefox and others.
Take a look at this screenshots and give it a try. Or please inform, if you are trying to run a windows application maybe you can find useful giving a try to install it through "wine".
