Description

3 years ago
Nightly (current build) is crashing dozens of times per day, usually within a few minutes after starting.

There is nothing specific that triggers the crash. It seems to be completely random.

The version of Firefox 31 from Fedora works without problem.

A typical crash report is:

Some more information:

Happens with version 340.24 of the NVIDIA binary blob driver but not with version 331.89.

Happens with the latest Nightly (34.0a1) but not with the latest Aurora (33.0a2).

I am running Fedora 20 64-bit.

Can you try 340.32 driver, it's newer than 340.24 with more bugfixes.

https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/766018/unix-graphics-announcements-and-news/linux-solaris-and-freebsd-driver-343-13-beta-/

Also try 343.13 beta if possible, it's a newer driver branch.

I have been running with 340.32 for several days now and have not had any problems. I think it is safe to say that this is no longer a problem.
