    hello,

    i just bought a "cheap" GF GT710 v2 (Maxwell), as a temporary solution replacement for my older PC.
    So i installed it, installed the latest driver (364.72), and everything was fine.

    Than after a few hours, i opened a new tab in Firefox and bääm...screen goes black...and then tray-message "driver stopped working..." (Nvlddmkm error in syslog).
    So it only happens when i open a new tab in Firefox and when hardware acceleration is turned on.

    So after nearly 5 years i get this annoying error again :bang::bang:
    Last time with my 9800gt in 2011...

    so would could it be? maybe a driver issue? or broken hardware? maybe i should send it back?
    Or is this a specific firefox problem?

    My sys Win7 x64, na FF 38.8.0 ESR.

    Update Fire Fox. Around the time the version you are using was released there was an issue with it crashing. Or you can disable hardware acceleration.
