Hi Jonathan. . .
My apologies on this one. I recall that I saw this post then... May be a kiddie distraction? No, can't say that - my fault.
You generated a user-mode dump that shows us an assert (break) code = 0x80000003
, which simply means that you/ the user caused the assert. Unfortunately, there is not much in there for me to go on. As you probably know, the BSOD kernel dumps we regularly work on are post-mortum dumps - caused by a force other than yourself and the dump is created after-the-fact (crash). Here we know exactly what caused/ created the dump.
Can you tell me more about this freezing with Firefox? Is it only Firefox, i.e., not with IE8?
Does Firefox exhibit the same behavior in safemode w/ Networking?
A few other things to try -
- run FFox at elevated admin level - RIGHT-click on FFox icon, "Run as Administrator"
- Try another user account. If you do not have one, activate the hidden admin account. Bring up an elevated admin cmd/DOS prompt, type net user administrator /active:yes
Logoff your account; "Administrator" account waiting at logon screen for you.
Sorry if you know most of this; I am in my usual detailed instruction mode! If you would like, I will be glad to look at various system reports - they may yield clues. 2nd pair of eyes and all. Lord knows a second or third has saved me in the past. I just updated my BSOD dump & system information gathering app this morning.

The EXE file that you would normally extract from the zip file can be found just below.

Please see my PM re: output.
Kind Regards. . .
