I still get the same message with a bell/bong that sounds when the message appears. Currently I've left the hardware accelerator off. Even when I come out of the safe mode after having turned off the H.A. the message displays then as well.

Did you get the error in safe mode?

Yes, .... the only time the error message comes on is when I close firefox. So in the safe mode I closed firefox and the same message came up.

The BP report number is better all around. Once a report is submitted, the Mozilla system checks for comparisons with other reports. Sometimes this shows where the problem is.
