Had to say Goodbye to FF =(

Well had to say goodbye to FF and replaced it with Opera

FF has been crashing my VideoCard and Bricking my system if i jump on it quick it will be ok but it randomly crashes

I've read that alot of people have this issue ,I thought it was a flash issue but not and when i am on FF when using Facebook my VideoCards rev up letting me know something is causing them to respond

If anyone else has encountered this issue and managed to stablize it let me know for now

im going to stay far away from FF just to much Unexpected crashing

Damn..it's the first I've heard of this type of issue with FF. I recently just started using FF over IE9. I'll be on the look out now...so far so good using FF for me.

BTW...what version of FF were you using?

Just checking FB using FF and everything is working just fine for me. Maybe there is a setting in FB that has changed...or a bug of some sort.

if your videocard fan starts to run it will crash because your VC shouldn't run hard when using a regular ole browser even though it has flash

I tried going back to FF recently, still don't like it. It's jittery and freezes so much (usually on sites with a good amount of flash).
It still just seems too bloated, or there's always too much going on all the time to make it useful.

Opera and Chrome don't have near the hiccups that FF seems to. Even IE works better.

Yes they all work perfectly fine what stresses me is the fact my GPU starts up and it never did that before

Only with FF my GPU starts up and im not sure if there is a conflict there or not since the uninstall it has been pretty much stone cold

Good thing there are more options out there I really liked FF for the look and the appeal but i can get over that very quickly if it becomes annoying which it has on to the next great hope

I also was going to get WaterFox but what would be the point Practicly the same thing so much for that idea

Since there is no fix for this im going to mark it solved for now but if anyone knows a fix please post on here sticky or what ever i think it will be helpfull

I also asked a couple members about there set up for further research so the word is out and people are on the look out

I agree with MWRed.

Firefox 12/13 up to 14 versions were OK.

I also noticed that these latest versions of Firefox with hardware acceleration enabled would take my GPU to 60c

But with Chrome or IE it would stay around 42/46c. I once used to be a Firefox fan back in 2008 & 2009.

Basicly FF is taking up Video resourses and making my system lock

Maybe should adress this with mozilla after all my GPU is too strong for it to crash on a simple browser this is the support list http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/sea...deo+card+crash

Pretty much everything here doesn't apply have the newest drivers as well

I had issues with FF about a year ago. Since then I switched to chrome and have had great success.
