As you replace each string, try looking at the bridge position in relation to the violin body, it should be perpendicular. The bridge feet should also be flat or flush against the violin. Same thing when you tune each string,check the angle of the bridge at the feet and at the top. Over time, some bridges can warp or bend if not maintained at a perpendicular angle and make it more susceptible to falling over as the pressure from the strings is pushing down on the bridge.
