I get black screen when visiting some website on Google Chrome or Firefox. As example, the bug is reproduced when playing some video on youtube.
When playing a video on youtube the screen get black and the sound continue to play back. On FireFox the screen get black when accessing the page: http://www.google.com/chrome
Info about my graphic card
lspci | grep -i vga 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (primary) (rev 0c)
I have tested a couple of ubuntu 14.04 based distribution (64 and 32 bit) and they all have the issue. It's reproduced event with Fedora 20.
The bug can simply reproducing by booting the live CD of ubuntu 14.04, then open FireFox and go to the page google.com/chrome
Loading the DDX fbdev instead of intel, seems to fix the issue. but this is not efficient....
Is there a way to debug the issue?
Look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log and dmesg, see the error message, then attach /sys/class/drm/card0/error.

The Xorg log says that it has detected hung GPU.

Any suggestion about what part for code that could make the GPU hungs are very helpful. I will work on it.
It seems that Firefox get frozen for few seconds when access google.com/chrome on Windows Vista, but later it will display the page, however Windows display an error message saying there is hardware issue in the video card.
PS: I have used Linux for more than 3 month on this laptop and I have not this issue before.

crash dump from /sys/class/drm/card0/error
I am having the same problem since the last system update. I'm also running 64 bit and I have the same graphics card, so it really seems to be the same issue.
I'm getting the error in chrome, when I'm opening the details view of an extension in the Chrome App Store. Gnome's Oops dialog screen thing will pop up, but the screen doesn't go black.
Below are packages from the last system upgrade that I think could be relevant.

I'll also attach the crash dump. If there is anything else that could be of help, please let me know.
Could you please explain what this bug is a "blocker" for?
I'm unable to navigate to website in FireFox or Chrome because this issue.
youtube and many others website that have some graphics make the screen black.
I was forced to drop linux because this issue and I went back to my MS Vista.
