Firefox crashes with NVidia 331.20 (Linux 64bit)

As the title says, Firefox crashes immediately upon opening when using NVidia's latest stable drivers (331.20). The last stable driver that Firefox works with is 319.60. This issue only afflicts Firefox. All other HW accelerated programs I've tried work. Anybody have any ideas on a solution?

Thanks in advance,

Solution choisie

There is a bug in the nVidia driver since R325.08 which affects GLX pixmaps. The simplest solution is to use drivers R319.xx (319.72 is the latest). Another solution is to recompile Firefox using the nvidia specific patch discussed here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=896287

There are no crash reports. This happens before Firefox's crash monitor can run.

Huh I guess even on Linux their newer drivers are causing problems. Not sure about Linux but the last version to work well for users on Windows was 314.22

Thank you for your replies everyone.

mats_b_tegner's reply sort of solved the issue. I'm going to try to patch and compile Firefox as the current NVidia drivers provide needed functionality. Hopefully the devs will see fit to include the patch in future releases.
