Hardware acceleration crashes FF29 NVidia 460
FF29, NVidia 335.23 drivers, GTX460, Windows 8.1 Update
When hardware acceleration is enabled, FF29 crashes on start up. When Hardware acceleration is disabled, FF29 opens and works, but slowly.
IE11 hardware acceleration is enabled, with no problems.
Can you please provide a fix for this soon? Disabling hardware acceleration is not an elegant solution to the problem.

Hope that helps. If there's anything else you need, please ask. Regards, Steve
Michael has reported these to an open crash bug. There are two signatures however and I think that it is crashing doe to a translation of pixels not having a destination. (Though this is probably a bad explanation).
I did read that there are some beta drivers for the graphics card you reported. If I may ask, is there a website or any specific steps you take before it crashes, or is it just on startup?
Thank you for your input!!
The crashes happen on start up. I can sometimes get to the home page, but when I go to the 'open menu' dropdown, it crashes. The only way I can get to the start is to do safe mode start, when turn hardware acceleration off.
I've just downloaded the NVidia 337.50 Beta drivers and will install them. Of course I'll report back when I've installed them and tried FF30 Beta 1.
Installation of new drivers does not solve the issue.
Thank you for confirming this. For crash bugs this is the expected case for creating a detailed crash bug: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/d.../Triaging_crash_bugs What's next would be to find a regression window for this driver: Finding a Regression Window I also added the keyword regressionwindow-wanted
I am not entirely sure if this is correct, but the crash is a call to a status update on an accelerated thread that has timed out? other comments on the other crashes are seeing blank pages and most are start up crashes. But of course this does not say much on where this regression window started.
