      Well, shucks. I'll just have to live with it because my version of Slackware is still 14.2 and it doesn't utilize the newer ESR version (115.x, I think).

      problem though is that version 68  is not really not safe to use on the internet.

      Oh, the old box has other issues, but that graphics lockup carp had been really annoying me lately. A lesson to learn, though, for ALL LInux users of any distribution;   It's NOT a good idea to go outside of your repos for software.

      Nice that you figure out a solution

      Well, for months now, I've been experiencing weird graphics lockup of my system. It seems to ONLY happen when I view certain pages/images within the newest Firefox that I've been running for the past couple years in Slackware. I can duplicate this every time by just attempting to view a Google Map, specifically when I try to use "Street View" within that map page.   I just now reverted to the standard ESR version of FF that is in the Slackware repos. I'm hoping this will eliminate the video bugaboos.   OK... I just went to Google Maps and used Google Street View with no issues whatsoever, so my questions/suspicions have been answered. YAY!   My now current Firefox version is: 68.12.0 ESR (64-bit)... far cry from FF 118.x, but that's fine. This ESR version works okely-dokely for me.
