It seems I'm not along with this problem ...

As he says, no difference with safe-mode or -P

and https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=729817

So how do I tell if I have 2D or 3D?

I don't know if I know, but I'm pretty sure I know how to ensure that 2D is
used. Put the following in a configfile in /etc/X11/ somewhere:

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Disable"
EndSection

Except for an occasional testing session, I use it always, usually in
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-extensions.conf, as bling and I do not get along.
Trouble with any Gecko crashing or trashing any of my systems is
extraordinarily rare, even though I usually have 5 different ones open at
once in the same X session.


After googling I found a couple of threads for an older version of Fedora and another for ArcOS that advised booting with "nouveau.noaccel=1" on the command line.

This seems to work. I ran for most of yesterday without that problem.

Now where to put it in the xorg.conf.d/

goes extinct. That's the law of the universe, adapt or die.
