Just after posting this I looked at Xorg.0.log again and found that
1. the system *is* running the modesetting driver
2. the modesetting driver's man page says it doesn't do acceleration, which
explains why there's no reference to sna or uxa in Xprg.0.log.
===> So, I'm left with my original problem, which is why the KDE Plasma desktop
often crashes when I close an instance of Firefox with a lot of open windows and/or
tabs. I had suspected that it might have something to do with graphics acceleration
(there are hints of such problems on the web), but it seems not to be so.
Suggestions are welcome. I've reported the crashes to Red Hat's Bugzilla.
What is the bugzilla #? Even though I don't use Intel HW at the moment it does
concern KDE which I do run an I would like to follow. You may also want to post your
experience on the KDE list as someone there may have run into this.
Additionally, I think you may also want to try switching to the intel driver. I
believe this can be done by just creating an xorg.conf with just
as the content.
