Default [hardy] 169.12 - X crash through firefox

I have a Geforce 8800GT, running hardy 64-bit with 169.12 drivers (installed through EnvyNG) (2.6.24 kernel)

Everything works fine, except when I visit certain websites in firefox that crash the X server. One such site is:

http://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/4986

You might have to scroll to crash. It's weird that I have no other problems, and the problem disappears if I uninstall the drivers. There is one more person with the same problem, the ubuntu bug report can be found here (not an apport report):

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/224966

I cannot get backtraces or apport crash reports. Please advise ways for me to get more info if needed.

Well, at least the first link crashes my machine, not just X, the whole system is locked up, and all I can do is to press the power key for 5 seconds and force the system to shut down.
Ubuntu 8.04 final, 169.12 driver, Thinkpad T61p with Nvidia Quadro FX 570M.
Since the system is entirely locked up, I couldn't get a nvidia-bug-report.

The second link is not problematic, it's the bug report in ubuntu launchpad. Note that if you uninstall the nvidia drivers you will not have problems visiting the first link, so we believe the problem is nvidia related.
