I doubt it is memory related unless the RAM is bad. You can start a RAM test.

I should hope it's intact. Stay tuned...and the built-in test found no problems.
Here are the particulars of my PC. I bought this one in order to get Windows 7:


HP ProDesk 600 G2 MT

Intel Core i7-6700 CPU @ 3.40 GHz

Installed memory (RAM) 4.00 GB (3.88 GB usable)

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit operating system

"Going black" can be a precursor of an OOM issue (& subsequent crash) &/or related video issue when using "lots" (> ~2GB 32-bit or ~4GB 64-bit Mozilla, Windows) of RAM.

Bug 1108253 OMTC: Screen Goes Black

Might be totally unrelated, but without knowing Mem usage...


67% physical memory

So is the seamonkey.exe process using ~2.68 GB of RAM at these times?

If so, 2.68 is a LOT (even for me, sometimes ;-)) with a 32-bit version of Mozilla, & I would quite likely expect all kinds of oddities to occur.

How do I disable OMTC? Any downside?

That's not the point, & you probably do not want to do that (if the option even still exists).

Well, something in rendering is amiss if it eats up memory like that.
Any way to age off pages as they scroll by?
Download speeds would allow it...

The driver update from Intel via HP seems to have helped.
I'm still running without hardware acceleration.
I'm not sure if I need it with the i7 chip.
I tried to induce the OutOfMemory blackout, but couldn't.
I turned the hardware acceleration back on and no blackout.

Oops, hardware acceleration was a bridge too far.
Stay tuned to see if that rosy conclusion about the update holds...

I've added 32GB RAM and still get blacked out frozen Seamonkey, with acceleration turned off or on.
Scrolling is more robust, but Flash items cause the problem when clicked. Never saw this before...

On the other hand, HD video plays without crashing after adding 32GB of RAM...
