My PC keeps crashing, I have absolutely no idea why. It is seemingly at random but, possibly, with increasing frequency. The symptoms are that I cannot change tabs in Firefox or switch applications (either by the taskbar or alt-tab), the pointer moves if I move the mouse but there is no response to clicks. All I can do is power off the machine.
I'm not a power user and generally the only application I have had open when the crash occurs is firefox. I am aware there have been some memory leakage issues with FF on windows, does this also exist in Linux?
To be honest, I don;t know where to start here. Are there likely to be any logs that will help diagnose the problem?
