I've installed Linux Mint 16 Petra Cinnamon few days ago, and I'm having freezing problem when i use a browser.
The problem occurs sometimes, I think especially when I look at videos; the OS completely freezes and i can't do quite anything to make it work again.
I've tryed with ctrl-alt-f1 and than sudo restart mdm but still does not work.
I've tryed firefox, chrome and chromium and the problem is present in all cases.
I don't know what it could be but I can say that I had a similar problem with windows 8 too (TDR failure), and the only way to make it work without freeze is with old graphic drivers (195.62). I don't know if this might be of help.
Here is what i get with inxi -Fxz
