[ubuntu] Firefox crashes running Cinnamon Desktop

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – My OP is here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2051275 I found nothing in my Firefox setting that would cause it to crash and I never got a crash report from Firefox to send. During the time all these crashes/freezes occurred I was running the Cinnamon Desktop. I went back to Unity and everything runs smooth. Now my question is could the Cinnamon Desktop be corrupted, or something happened to make it crash/freeze up Firefox and Chromium? Both Browsers reacted the same way. This started after updates that updated the Cinnamon Desktop as well as other things. Any clues as to what is go (Hardware)
