I had much more severe issues than you. The i915 driver would not actually run without acpi and the system wouldn't boot without acpi turned off.
I gradually worked my way up to moving the system to -current and replacing the kernel before I saw results.
Martinus2u suggestion is not a bad one. I considered it a few weeks ago and in my exploration I made a weak attempt at updating files from the intellinuxgraphics.org site but I was confused how the pieces fit together and lacked the knowledge to make it work properly.
TobiSGD gave me the same advice Mr. Volkerding just gave you. It sounds like the lowest risk first step before you try riskier alternatives.
How many times do we read on this forum that a member spent a lot of time trying to solve a problem and was only able to finally solve the problem when they reloaded the software. Just a thought unpleasant as it may be.
I've got a 3 day weekend (because I'm a veteran) and I'm feeling particularly brave. I think I'll clonezilla the disk tonight and then I'll upgrade to -current just to see. If it doesn't work or I make a critical failure of myself then I'll just restore the clone and try some of the suggestions above.
I'm gonna leave the thread open until I can verify that -current doesn't suffer from the FF lockups the way 13.37 stable does on this machine.
