QuakeLive / FireFox crash after closing/joining 2nd game
If you have an nvidia card then the likely solution is :
Quakelive uses OpenGL, nvidia introduced OpenGL 3.3 with their 197.13 drivers that were pushed to windows update.If you do not have an nvidia card then at this point I can only suggest either trying internet explorer instead, or backing up your firefox bookmarks, completely removing firefox, reinstall firefox and quakelive only. Try the game then.
the OpenGL 3.3 support in that version has bugs which come to light with quakelive, causing problems after any initial run of the game client.
The solution is to use earlier nvidia drivers (195.81 or older), or 197.25 or later.
Various plugins or extensions can cause problems that cause firefox to not terminate correctly, or slowly wind down to a crawl.
edit: also (especially for users of the newer 250.xx and 260.xx drivers, but this may work with older ones too) -

I can't seem to get rid of this problem.
GPU: Nvidia 7900 GTX with driver 258.96
According to the GPU specification the card only supports OpenGL 2.0
Has anyone else had similar problems and in that case, any solution?
I'm not bloody rebuilding/reconfiguring my computer just to play a game! It's like saying "in order to use this GPS Navigation you can pull out the engine of your car, strip it, put it back together, reinstall it and maybe it works. If it doesn't work, use another brand of car". Get real and find an actual solution...

Quake Live works properly with
258.96 WHQL (works pretty decent, only few crashes)
197.45 WHQL (however this driver has problems with in game stuttering and movie stuttering that are accelerated via DXVA)
But this isn't a solution, downgrade to so old drivers result in big incompatibility with newer games (and i am not playing only QL)
I will update this list as soon as there are any new drivers from nvidia that i could test

This need to be fixed asap...
how about dont be an *******. these people are going out of their way to fix YOUR problem, not theirs, and youre being a ******. if you dont like the ONLY solution available currently, say so, and dont fix it. try being respectful to people who are going out of their way to help you.

so still no change regarding this issue? interesting
hear hear kittenignition. Comparing with a car engine.... lol. He must be new to computers
This just started happening to me now. was fine all throughout beta... and since i been playing up until a couple days ago. Now it just always constantly crashes when joining or exiting a game. Exactly as the thread says.
I uninstalled and changed vid drivers, uninstalled and reinstalled firefox and quake plug in. don't know what happened, but nothing worked.
Same here, crashing all the time since the update recently. very annoying. tried different drivers with no luck.
