nv? You should download the official driver from nvidia.com.
Now i'm using firefox3 with nvidia beta driver 180.

install x11/nvidia-driver from ports tree
load it with kldload nvidia
or add nvidia_load="YES" to /boot/loader.conf

run X -configure
if works (will work) copy output file to /etc/X11/xorg.conf

You can try with

Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps"

in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file under the nv Driver section.
I use the 'nv' driver and this solved the problem.

Hello, I had problems with firefox (amd64) with nv driver but it works fine after adding to "Device" section in /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
Code:
        Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"
        Option "MigrationHeuristic"  "greedy"

correction:
nvidia driver works on amd64, if you run it in 32bin mode ;)

besides, i don't see you mentioned you got 64bit os earlier

He may not have mentioned it, but you just assumed he wasn't using it :)

I find it odd that you won't use opera as a torrent client because it's closed source (http://daemonforums.org/showthread.php?t=2476#post18713) but you will recommend someone use a closed source driver :)

just install FreeBSD i386
However if you got more than 4G memory, there will be problem
