Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

I observed this problem more frequently before my video driver was updated a month or two ago. It has only happened twice since the update. I don't recall the circumstances of the previous incidence other than that I clicked something in firefox and the screen went dark. I checked the log files, but didn't find anything relevant. This time I was reading a Newegg.com ad

Then I right clicked on an image of "LG W2286L Black 22" 2ms HDMI" and clicked to open in a new tab. The entire screen went dark and I couldn't tell whether the system was responding to the keyboard or not. I had to reboot.

The URL for the LG monitor is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824005133&nm_mc=EMC-IGNEFL121509&cm_mmc=EMC-IGNEFL121509-_-MonitorsLCDFlatPanel-_-LP2A-_-24005133
