    Firefox on Windows 7 SP1 64-bit.

    Since I installed 57.0 I've had two bluescreens. (It never happened on any previous version.)

    The second time I took a few notes:

    STOP: 0x0000007E

    Pointing at: atikmdag.sys

    It happens while using Firefox but the installation of 57.0 coincides with installing KB4048957 and flash_player_27_0_0_187.

    Anyone else?

    No issues here with version 57 on Windows or Linux. Methinks the problem is the MS update. Also, I'd get rid of Flash player completely because most sites now use HTML5 video and that support is built into the browser. I haven't needed Flash in 2 years. And sites that still use it are old sites.

    KB4048957 includes an update to Microsoft Graphics Component. atikmdag.sys is a system file from your ATI video driver.

    I had a hunch that KB4048957 was involved but was too lazy to investigate. If it happens a third time, I'll uninstall FlashPlayer but since Firefox "uses" HTML5, uninstalling FlashPlayer should make no difference, right?

    A second thought, if most sites are using HTML5, how come FlashPlayer is integrated in Windows 10?

    because Adobe is a Microsoft partner!
