Ever since I installed Magnum/Titanium whatever version of FF, I get nvidia drivers crashes while browsing internet (black screen, kernel error message, driver stopped working, restarted). Random pages, some with videos, some without. Interesting thing I never got any crashes while playing graphics intense games, so when my card is under 100% load with temps approaching 90F it's ok, not a single crash... but throw some static webpage with 5 images in it and bam... crash. I thought my card was dying or something, so I asked help on Nvidia forums, and they all pointed out (without me even mentioning my browser) that if I'm using FF I should switch to something else. So I did. I've been using Chrome exclusively for a few days, and not a single crash.

So are you guys aware of this problem?

A) In case you are not aware of it, we're not Mozilla. This forum is not run by or formally associated with Mozilla. We're an independent user-helping-user community.
B) What version of Firefox do you have installed? Find out by entering "About:support" in the location bar and pressing "Enter".
C) Have you tried disabling hardware acceleration in Firefox? ... =inproduct
