I was playing around with the driver software for my NVidia Geforce Go 7400. I tried to flip the image on the screen 180 degrees, with Firefox minimized at the same time. After flipping the image back again, Firefox did no longer respond. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Minimize Firefox
2.Open your screen settings, open the tab Settings, and click the advanced button
3.Inhere I find the driver specific settings for my GeForce Go 7400, and alters the direction 180 degrees, applies the new settings and then after the screen is flipped, I change it back again.
Actual Results:  
When trying to maximize Firefox, it appears to have crashed

Expected Results:  
It should have just opened as normal

Test performed with Firefox 3 Beta 4, danish version
