I just found out:

It is important to always have the latest nvidia driver installed.

I tried:

Nvidia-current (TTY gave black screen and firefox freeze) 

Nvidia-173 (TTY ok but firefox very slow)

Nvidia-173-updates (TTY ok and firefox very slow)

Then I installed Nvidia-current-updates and now my system seems to work 

I always use synaptic packet packet manager as I find it gives very good 

I think there is too little information about the importance of the 
proper graphics cards drivers version installed?
