Default Segfault in Firefox (GeForce 7600, Linux 2.6.9, JOGL)

I recently updated my drivers to v. 100.14.19 for my GeForce 7600 GS card. Since doing so, Firefox 2.0.0.5 crashes when I try to run applets that rely on JOGL (SUN's Java for OpenGL).

Here is an excerpt from the nvidia-bug-report.log file.

In my system log file, I find the following:

I am running Linux 2.6.9 (Centos 4.5) on a dual x86_64 arch.

I don't speak video card, so I would appreciate any help in determining whether I have a problem that has been solved in the past, or whether this is something new that would benefit by my submitting a bug report.

I have tried to search for clues (aw, man! nvidia - you MUST get rid of that timer that only allows one search every 60 seconds...) but have not yet found any matches.

Might someone interpret what these messages mean, and suggest a corrective course of action?

Thanks much in advance for your help.
