Same issue (screen goes black for a second then back to normal, pop-up message says nVidia driver crashed and then was restored
Seven 64 bits with nVidiaDisplay Driver v220.127.116.1112 (NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M 1024MB VRAM)
This Mozilla Wiki states:
We require NVIDIA driver version 257.21 or newer (June 2010), see bug 623338.
Notice that 257.21 is the commercial version number. This corresponds to the last 5 digits in the technical version number, which for instance is 18.104.22.16821 on Windows 7/Vista.

So I should
be fine with version 259.12 but crash is consistent
Deactivating graphics acceleration solves the issue for now.
PS. I had no addons issues with Firefox 3.

Edit: Geforce.com provides an updated driver (Nvidia Verde for notebooks v267.76
WHQL released on March 24, 2011).
Among other things, it touts "Improved compatibility and reliability with GPU-accelerated websites viewed using Internet Explorer 9"
for Vista/Seven 32/64 bits, but says absolutely nothing about improved compatibility with Firefox 4.
(Toshiba's latest update is version 259.12
