Windows 7: BSOD Freeze maybe related to Firefox??

BSOD Freeze maybe related to Firefox??

I can reliably produce a BSOD freeze (no BS) where all keys and functions are inactive by running Firefox 6 (or 5) for some length of time (varies, but usually not over a few minutes). I have enclosed the other materials in case it is not really FF doing this:

This is a Toshiba Satellite L675D w an AMD Phenom II N640 Dual Core 2.90 GHz CPU
4gig RAM
64 bit processor
Windows 7 Home Premium SP1

Any help would be appreciated

Hello Ksalzman, welcome to SF!

I can't really see a relation to FF yet... but you do need to check some things:

Please go to your Maintenance Center and check the Windows Update status. Make sure you are up to date, do them one by one manually if needed.
For help or reset see: Windows Update - Reset
Also, you seem to have a problem with a PnP device. Is there any exclamation mark in the Devices screen?
