So, I generally cant do too much web activity with Firefox without my mouse freezing and making my computer unresponsive ( even Control Alt Delete ). It could be on all sorts of sites.

I wonder if there any know problems with Firefox 25.0 or the following.

 

Extensions.

Add block plus

No script

password exporter

 

Plugins

ESN Launch Mozilla Plugin 2.3.0.0

ESN Sonar API

Nvidia 3d vision

Nvidia 3d vision

Shockwave flash 11.9.900.117

VLC Web plugin

 

Thanks, as its most annoying.

Well step one, run the browser in safe mode and see if it still does it.  That'll tell you if it's an extension/plugin or your system/Firefox in general.

Use 314.22 drivers and wait for a solution from NVIDIA

Try nvidia offered special driver... It seems to fix issues for some users and also it is newer so BF4 performance might also improve with them.
