Question

FireFox hardware acceleration in version 18.0.1 and 18.0 is broken and not ready for release to public.

FireFox releases including 18.0 and 18.0.1 are horribly unstable and immediately crash when launched with hardware acceleration enabled. Firefox 17.0.2 is fully functional with hardware acceleration enabled, although strangely 17.0.2 is slower and less responsive than the 17.0.1 version of FireFox.

I have the very latest nvidia and intel video drivers installed onto 64 bit Windows 7.

I have an ASUS laptop with nvidia optimus video. ASUS UX32VD-DB71

Intel HD Graphics 4000

NVIDIA GeForce GT 620M

Conclusion: FireFox hardware acceleration in version 18.0.1 and 18.0 is broken and not ready for release to public.
