My Firefox seems to be corrupting my video card. When I use Firefox the screen develops snow, then after a little while, it goes entirely beige (never seen that before), the computer seems to still be operating (drive lights are normal etc), but the screen is non-operative, just beige.
If I restart I get snow on the "checking disk" page, then eventually it beiges it out, even if I do not start Firefox.
If I restart a SECOND time, then the computer seems fine (as long as I don't start Firefox).
Currrently I am using Chrome to write this question. Chrome seems completely fine. I can watch videos etc.
I am interested in finding out why this is happening. Please don't just write "reinstall Firefox". I know that. That is not helpful. I want to understand WHY this happening and what Firefox could be doing that it is corrupting the video card.
