possible fix for nvidia driver issues with 560ti cards and firefox

#1wwarren19Posted 9/14/2013 4:45:05 PM
for anybody having driver crashes when using newer nvidia drivers (after 314.22) and firefox.


Firstly go to the Nvidia contol panel and go to manage 3D settings , change the power management to Prefer maximum performance , leaving it on adaptive is known to cause this problem.

second Disable Hardware Acceleration (GPU Rendering) in Mozilla Firefox

1. Open Mozilla Firefox, click on the orange Firefox button and select "Options".
2. Go to "Advanced" tab and disable "Use hardware acceleration when available" option.
3. Click on OK button and restart the browser.

I just downgraded, and I'm using chrome at the moment.

But I can confirm that my 560m was locking up the computer when I used firefox.

Looks like 314 still locks up the system every 3 days.
