When I use chrome, firefox or other browsers to browse the web, Ubuntu crashes often. Mouse and keyboard don't work anymore, so I have no choice but to restart.
My notebook is an Acer s3-391.

I'm still unable to help my Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202 in Firefox 14.0.1 crashing all the time when I try to watch a video, e.g. on vimeo, but only on mouse movement or keystroke on the keyboard.

Thought id post this as I have tried many times to install 13.04 but it crashes. I tried again with the daily build and it still crashes. It loads however if I turn off APCI=OFF however then I dont have use of the mouse or keyboard.
Since about 2 to 3 weeks ago, my Ubuntu 13.04 desktop frequently freezes after I am using Chrome for a while. The mouse is movable, but nothing respond to mouse or keyboard. I have to push the power button to shut down the machine and restart it. Sometimes, the symptoms are not complete freezing, but all files become read-only, which makes nothing works. All Chrome tabs shows error message.
One of my computers with Ubuntu 12.04 regularly crashes when I try to navigate video (and some other special) presentation formats on the web. Like the Zinio magazine reader. It happens in Chrome and Firefox both. Often I eventually get a message asking whether I want to restart Compiz or not.
