To your kernel command line, try adding:

Code:
pcie_aspm=off
Hrm. Is that going to mess up how my video card gets power? It's one of those that doesn't need a PSU plug. (Geforce 1050ti)

No, it's just going to mean that clever power management isn't going to reduce power to the PCI Express bus. I always run with that disabled, I don't like that idea on a non-laptop system.

That's actually something the BIOS does, but the kernel has a driver so it can be controlled by policy, or disabled.

Oh hang on: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=196683

That sounds like what I'm experiencing...

Oof. Looks like I've got some stuff to read when I'm fresh.

Definitely worth looking into, while it's a 2017 bug report, there are some fairly recent posts. Possibly something a BIOS update, or microcode firmware blob could fix.

I presume if you're on -current you're using the distro's current 4.19 longterm kernel, not some ancient one.

Yup, I'm on current. BIOS flashed this morning, and I'm using rcu_nocbs (set to the proper amount of cores). Marking this one solved, because it's not a firefox issue. Thanks for all the help, folks!

Fingers crossed that it's mitigated? We had a family dinner, and I let things idle. Screensaver did kick on, so I'm not sure if that's enough activity to make it not crash.
