As already reported in the issue #60634 there is a problem in the NVidia driver (415.22 for example), at least on my Asus NV750JV with a NVIDIA 840M card.
If I try to load this page with Firefox (63 or 64, don't know for previous versions)
the server crashes.
This is probably due to the driver. The same does not happen on a Toshiba with a NVidia 710M that uses the 390.xx driver.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:

Go to and scroll to the bottom. The Xorg crashes.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Works for me
Additional comments about closing:  Can't reproduce and also it's very unlikely that we can fix this at a packaging level. If the issue remains, please contact NVIDIA directly.

Is this still an issue?
