    Have any of you experienced any Firefox lockups since 25.01 was released? I am asking because I'm not sure if it's Firefox itself that has been fixed, or if the recently-updated Flash player has anything to do with it.

    I have a lot of issues with firefox and windows 8. I get flickering black screen sometimes with firefox open. Goes away once I restart the browser. I've also had lockups where I had to hold the power button to shutdown while just browsing.

    I had the same problem with the lock-up until yesterday.
    I would also get a full crash recovery just from browsing,
    and sometimes the mouse cursor would all but disappear.
    I've never had these issues before 331.65, on any machine.

    Hi there,

    I have been using cyberfox for months. I am using cyberfox 25 now &
    driver 331.65 with not one lockup. I know cyberfox is base on firefox
    but i think cyberfox is better.

    It is probably best to turn off hardware acceleration in FF and wait for fixed drivers for 460/560 users .
    Nvidia is trying to fix stability issues in there latter drivers 320.xx+ .

    Never ever had any issues with Firefox in Win7 x64 nor in Win 8.1 x64 which is my current OS.

    @Webhiker:

    It's weird to see you say that, because I have run chkdsk more times in the last week than I can remember, and I've been using Windows 7 since launch. Oh well, it seems to be working now, but I'm still keeping an eye on my Event Log.

    Getting black screen only in firefox window when I scroll. Also crashes with just normal browsing occasionally. No problems in chrome. Using gtx 780 ti + 331.65. I'm glad this thread exist I was beginning to think something was wrong with my system/win8.1

    You're welcome, mikami. Hopefully ManuelG checks out the thread too and passes along the information to the right people.

    If memory serves.. Flash has actually been a cause of crashing Fermi based video cards in the past.

    So.. who knows xD

    I'm on Windows 8.1 with 331.65 WHQL and using Waterfox v24.0 ... and have only had 2 driver crashes.. which is much much less compared to the

    EVERYFREAKINGDAYOFUSAGEONWINDOWS7+ANYDRIVERABOVE314.22WHQL!!!!!!!!!!!!1ONE

    *cough*

    Sorry... touchy subject for me.
