Firefox 49.0.2 has an issue with the latest Geforce driver for the 750Ti. The Firefox browser window will not close until you do a manual screen refresh.

No crashes just the driver conflict. Did all the standard cleaning stuff. No issues. Reported this to NVIDIA as well. It started immediately after a driver update. This is a Windows 7 X64 Enterprise platform.

It sounds like the screen isn't redrawing properly. Firefox is closing as it should. I would roll back the driver if you didn't update it to fix a specific problem. The redrawng/refreshing issue is a windows/driver problem.

Moving to Mozillazine Tech. This really has nothing to do with Firefox.
