So for about a week now I've been having trouble with my Nvidia display driver crashing, then recovering. The only time this occurs is when I am on Firefox (I have yet to have an issue on another browser but I'm not ruling them out either). When the driver crashes, my screen goes black for about 5 seconds, then comes back on with the message "Nvidia display driver has stopped working and recovered successfully." This has never occurred whilst playing a video game or using any other program but Firefox. I tried reinstalling Firefox but that didn't seem to help. My graphics drivers are up to date, and everything seems to work perfectly fine.

So, is this an issue with the browser or my graphics card? Any suggestions for fixes to this problem are greatly appreciated.

did you clear the preferences when you deleted firefox since this makes a massive difference to just uninstalling it.

Try to rollback to previous graphics driver, see if it helps. Make sure you uninstalled all the current drivers and clean the registry entries.
