Firefox 68 crashing constantly on Fedora 30

I just upgraded to Firefox 68 on my Fedora 30, and now it crashes constantly – sometimes when I open a webpage, sometimes when I interact with some extension (eg. BitWarden). I am using the proprietary Nvidia driver, don’t know if it is related. Anyone else experiencing this?

Not here, I’m afraid. Can you please create a new profile and see if the crash persists?

Thks for the reply. I investigated a little further, and it does seem to be related to the Nvidia driver somehow. I accessed the troubleshooting information page (about:support) and realized that I had forced hardware acceleration in the past to see if it worked (and it did apparently, at least until v67), and the setting was still enabled. Resetting it to the default value apparently fixed the problem.
