Are you really sure it only happens with firefox?  At first I also
thought it was firefox, because firefox was one of the first
application to use on that PC.  So I stopped using firefox and
everything seemed to be ok for some sessions (short sessions,
because it's only the experimental PC until it works reliable).  But
then again the GUI froze also using an xterm or synaptic.

So you use the nv driver, too?  Maybe one should try the VESA driver
to see if the nv driver is to blame for the crashes. I'll check this
