  System freezing after install of latest kernel a few days ago

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  My system is locking up, while using Mozilla FireFox, after installing latest version of Mint 17 kernel.
  I can use Ctrl-Alt-Bsp to kill the instance of FF, but this re-occurs now every time I start to use FF.
  Could this be a problem with kernel handling of Nvidia graphics?  I have older 8600 graphics.  Other 
  sytem attributes:  AMD64x2 w 4GB ram, 1TB Hard drive, Viewsonic LED 1080p, 24inch.

  Again, no problems with this system until a few days ago when I upgraded to latest kernel.
  I always install all system updates as soon as I receive notice.

  Any way to get back to older kernel?  No previous kernel updates
  caused any problems!
