Glad to know im not alone, thinking my SSD was failing at first, then i started to suspect of firefox and adobe flash.

Are you sure the culprit is firefox 21? Computer totally freezes while using firefox of course.

i've been investigating more, this is a random issue related with the latest nvdia drivers, the most affected people with freezes are the owners of a gtx 560, rollback to previous version and problem solved.
Check nvidia forums for more cases.

I had issues with 21.0 beta/release Firefox and I am now happy using v14.0.1 for about a week, just picked it off oldversion.com. I am Radeon HD 7950, so not Nvidia driver issue here.

Pale Moon had issues too, so now I am using Maxthon, FF, and Opera, though all at the same time on 3 monitors.

One program called Ad Fender turned out to be causing a lot of grief also, just in case you tried that one, might want to trash it.

Also, don't forget to check your settings, via:

about:config

In Firefox URL window.

I removed the latest Nvidia drivers and went back to 314.22. My Video card would just stop and I would get this pop up error saying that your video driver has stopped. Now everything is fine.

I use the onboard Intel graphics chip.

I think in my case, the update either conflicted with the video drivers, or somehow damaged the startup routine related to properly initializing the drivers, as I had no crashes after startup repair ran and fixed some undefined errors. After that I upgraded drivers, Firefox, Jaca and a few plugins and haven't had any crashes since.
