Windows 10: GPU and Firefox issue

    GPU and Firefox issue

    First of all, I don't know if this belongs here or browsers sub forum :/ Move it to browsers if you think it's more appropriate

    I use Firefox now and in some occasions, Firefox (40) stops rendering using the GPU and reverts to software mode, making scrolling and such a bit choppy and about:support says it's blacklisted (?), searching seems that it's a driver issue and Firefox entered a safe-mode-like mode, I think may be the driver crashing or something rather than a Firefox bug, but I don't see the driver recovering message nor anything wrong in Event Viewer, does anyone know what could it be? In my other computer everything is fine.

    Thank you

    Turn off hardware acceleration. It seems that this helps according to the "experts" at their forum.

    Thank you!

    I've updated the driver as there was a new version at Nvidia, as well as refreshed Firefox and everything seems to be working fine and GPU acceleration is enabled. If it stops working again, I will try to disable HW acceleration
