Firefox gets laggy and then proceeds to crash after activity on youtube, hulu, and imgur. This issue isn't happening on Chrome. Most apparent performance before crash is violently laggy GIFs on Imgur, it was a while before I noticed that gifs, were actually sweet to begin with but Firefox browser was turning dogs and infants into demented creatures.

This coincidentally occurred post having my laptop get fixed for video card issue, had logic board replaced 2x but also updated firefox/ adobe player at same time, so unsure how to debug.

This seems to be a bug that is fixed in the next version. If you are okay, with waiting - that's cool. If not, you can try out the Beta version of Firefox.
