I get a popup message and it appears in my Event Log: "Application firefox.exe has been blocked from accessing Graphics hardware." Started happening a couple of days ago. I only received two of these messages so far. My gfx card is not overclocked. Anyone else get these messages?

I just saw this in about:support.

Windows will block an app from the GPU when it crashes the driver too many times. I have not seen that issue in a long time.

Yeah, I was getting some display driver stopped responding messages so I upped my TDR. This stopped these messages but the Fx message now pops up. I did a clean install of the latest drivers.
