Mihai, to clarify - the graphics driver crashes, and also Firefox crashes?  What crashes first, and how far apart are those crashes?

I'm not sure all the crashes above are the same issue, but this one could be related to the recent DIB changes?  Bas, thoughts?

While browsing the screen goes black and then the gfx driver crashes and the browser recovers but I cannot get it to load any pages even though it recovered. I need to restart it to get it back working.

What happens if you resize the window?

The DIB changes were backed out.

and the crashes are back since yesterday. Here is a crash report: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/baff4c71-40f3-4098-96ab-58e7a2151230
The crashes themselves seem to be all over the place, and I'm not seeing clues as to what would have caused the driver reset in these.  It would be interesting to see if bug 1235407 helps with the "... need to restart it to get it back working..." part, though it wouldn't necessarily help the driver resets in the first place.
