firefox crach when returning to desktop after playing a game
installed a new video card (GT240) in XP x64 edition. since doing so have alot of trouble with firefox freezing after returning to desktop (alt-tab) from playing a fullscreen game. this occurs with firefox versions 6,9,10,and 12. reverting to version 3.6 however seems to resolve the problem.
If that doesn't work, disable hardware acceleration. Turning off hardware acceleration. Firefox uses your graphics card to speed up rendering of some parts of some webpages, and if your graphics driver is out of date or conflicting, this could be causing it.

umm first off...how can edit my TOPIC?...my poor typing make me look silly .LOL
downloaded from nvidia site (oem as always with new hardware)
downloaded from realtek.com yesterday. seemed newer version than motherboard driver pack
please note problem existed before installing this board 2 days ago.
drivers downloaded from here:
yes turning off hardware acceleration allows the browser to work well however my game(s) will require it.in addition there is another symptom in that creating new empty profile allows firefox to function well BEFORE switching to already running game stored in BACKGROUND where as switching to my loaded profile firefox has alot of hiccup and freeze in this PRE-GAME
apologies for omiting this detail originally but the WINDOWS event manager records this error every time firefox locks up
"Windows cannot log you on because your profile cannot be loaded. Check that you are connected to the network, or that your network is functioning correctly. If this problem persists, contact your network administrator. "
and sometimes :
"Hanging application firefox.exe, version 188.8.131.5293, hang module hungapp, version 0.0.0.0, hang address 0x00000000."
i have a few of those from different versions i tried.
