163 Some of you may recall this but I'm going to mention it again just in
164 case. I have tried different kernels, different nvidia drivers,
165 different xorg, and a clean .firefox directory.
167 What it does you ask. When I open Firefox, it causes a kernel panic.
168 This is complete with flashing keyboard lights. What I have noticed.
169 It seems to do this when it is downloading something. It does this in
170 both KDE and Fluxbox. I don't think this has anything to do with the
171 GUI itself but I also don't think it is Firefox itself either. I think
172 Firefox is accessing something that causes it but not Firefox itself. I
173 have tried different versions of Firefox and they all do the same thing.
175 <<<< TIME DELAY HERE >>>>
177 I been working on gathering information for this for a while. I just
178 tried something else. I use the download helper plugin in Firefox to
179 download videos. Also, it crashes when I am downloading videos but that
180 is about all I use Firefox for. I had a light bulb moment and decided
181 to see if the same plugin was available for Seamonkey. It was available
182 so I installed it. It works the same as in Firefox. So, I closed as
183 much stuff as I could and started downloading a couple good size
184 videos. After a few minutes, you guessed it, kernel panic followed by a
185 reboot. To make sure it was not a fluke or something, I repeated the
186 process and got the same result.

203 I have just updated to adobe-flash- and still
204 get the same results. So, my theory that it was not Firefox itself may
205 be correct since Seamonkey does it too now. Do I suspect flash? Yep, I
206 do. We all know what a cesspool that thing is. Is there another option
207 tho for videos that I can try? Do I know it is flash, nope I don't but
208 it sure does look fishy. Could it be the download helper tool itself?
209 That is one thing in common between both Seamonkey and Firefox. Just
210 saying. < shrugs >
212 I also upgraded my kernel again too. 2.6.39-gentoo-r3 now.
214 Right now, just look over my info, see if you see anything insane there
215 and if not, recommend something I can use besides flash. Maybe some
216 third party thing that works reasonably well. If youtube works, I
217 should be good to go since the sites I go to are using the same thing,
218 some even source youtube.
220 Thanks again.
