Random log outs after dist-upgrade

Since the dist-upgrade I've experienced a few random logouts. The last couple times were just 10-15 mins apart and I was only using one web browser window and vim. Needless to say all my work in vim was lost. Has anyone else had this problem?

UPDATE: n00b alert: It looks like it may have been due to a firefox add-on  ::). Had to start firefox in safe mode to keep from getting an immediate log out.

After updating ABP and HTTPS-Everywhere it's running okay so far. If my luck lasts throughout the rest of the day, I'll mark this as solved.


UPDATE: It must not be an add-on. Disabled add-ons, and again running firefox and a terminal and I get a forced logout and lost everything :-\. Anyone have a clue? What supplemental info should I post?


lmfao keep going you have started the post you may as well keep going until you answer it yourself lol then close the thread


looks like your Intel card is crashing after you put a little pressure on it i.e overloading and/or it cries when it has too much work and decides enough is enough and says f***   this .. I didn't sign up for this shit they said it was going to be easier :) Im outta HERE ..

INTEL card walks out and slams the tty behind it

update the xorg drivers and re-test

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
