Thanks for helping.
I'm sorry but this is not a bug in Firefox and there is nothing we can do about this.
Any usermode application like Firefox can not cause the system to crash/reboot/Blue Screen. It's always a bug in the driver (graphic card, sound, firewall driver), the system itself or hardware issue in such a case.
Firefox is only triggering the bug in the driver,... and it doesn't matter if you get this only with Firefox. Today it's Firefox and tomorrow it's another application.

I would try to upgrade your graphic card driver if i would have the issue.
