I believe crashing with the same reported error started after install of Firefox14 (installed Firefox15 but didn't help).
Firefox13 and before I don't recall any of these types of crashes.
Firefox has crashed over 10 times while I have been typing this into Firefox.
When I close Fox and instead use Google chrome or other s/w there are no crashes.
I have turned off hardware acceleration in Firefox but crashing continues.
I plan to uninstall firefox and re-install fox13.
hello DavidRox, please update your graphics driver - this should be the right link for your model: www.geforce.com/drivers/results/48847
& though probably not related to the issue in your question, please also keep your plugins up to date: www.mozilla.org/plugincheck/
Yay! problem now solved. I went to the recommended site fed in my system details "Asus Notebook NVIDIA GeForce GT 220M 1GB OS Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit" and the site recommended I download:
Downloaded, installed, tested for a day or two and no crashes of the display driver since - Fixed.
Thank you for your help!
