Latest Nvidia driver SLI crashes when using firefox 28

I have Firefox 28 installed with update funnelcake September 2013 mozilla24 - 1.0 everytime i go to youtube or facebook or any flash related site or video related site my Nvidia display drivers crash ( I have them set with SLI mode) here are some screenshots of the issue. also it just crashed a few mins ago and Firefox sent report so hopefully they can fix it. SLI mode should not hinder FF.

Easiest solution is to roll back to the last driver that worked.

Also based on the age of those cards, the latest aren't going to offer much if anything in extra performance. With those cards I would only update if there is a specific fix for any issue you might be having.
