    I have a 2011 MBP (see sig), I've noticed twice in the last couple of days that in the middle of a session, the last time just browsing with Firefox, that I got a blue screen that did not go away. I admit I did not wait a long period of time before force restarting. On restart the problem goes away.

    Any ideas on a likely culprit? I have looked around for "blue screen" links, but the ones I found had to do with a blue screen on start. This is not my case.
    Thanks!

    Happened again tonight. Left the computer idle for an hour and came back to a blue screen. I could tell there were things going on in the background, just no video... Had to force a restart to regain video. I had a MBP once with a video problem and it showed in the profiler. Is a PCIe lane Width of x8 normal?
    Thanks!

    I did update Firefox recently (14.0.1) and found this thread regarding Firefox updates and video. Hmmm.
