Firefox keeps freezing, resulting in blue screen errors

Whenever I use Firefox, it runs just fine for about 10 minutes, then it stops responding, and doesn't work for 30 seconds to a minute. Sometimes when it does this, I go into Task Manager to shut down Firefox, and when it shuts down, my computer screen glitches up, then it instantly blue screens.

This problem started happening to me right when I updated from version 3.6 to 5.0 a few months ago, and now it does this on every version of Firefox I try using. Infact, version 3.6 doesn't work at all now, that version freezes the moment the browser opens, and sometimes blue screens as well.

Does anyone know why Firefox continuously freezes and give blue screen errors?

Also, the only extension I have running is Adblock Plus. The browser still freezes when I have Adblock disabled.
