Lol, try chrome.
, since it's a new card they may have some issues. By the way have you try 12.3/12.4 drivers?

I'm running 12.3 with my 7870 and it's been rock solid on Win7 SP1 and Win8 CP. Which version of Firefox and plugins are you running? Any website in particular?
EDIT: Chrome is my primary browser but I'll give FF a try and see if I can replicate your issues once you answer my questions about version, plugins, etc.
The new Firefox coming soon!

Problem solved, I was using MSI Afterburner and my card clearly doesnt like the extra volts.
I stopped using it and used CCC Overdrive - 20% power and running stable stock volts @ 1250/1450. P Score of 7600, ******* love this card.
