thank you - that's likely an issue with hardware acceleration. please try updating your graphics driver (this should be the right link for your configuration): https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24971/Intel-HD-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-7-8-64-bit

or in case this doesn't solve the issue or there is no new version available at the moment, disable hardware acceleration in the firefox menu ≡ > options > advanced > general (that setting will take a restart of the browser to take effect).

Thanks. For now, I have disabled hardware acceleration and the problem is gone.

Would you advise reenabling it and downloading the link you suggested. Would this enhance performance?

more options

yes exactly, that's why i'd go for a driver update first and only disable hwa if there are no other options. could you report back once you have tried the update? thanks...
