I have Firefox on my Windows XP..................just recently when wanting to click on an Icon on my Desktop the Icons will start flickering and i have to go to the Start section and click on my Internet icon to access my Facebook Homepage. This isnt all the time but out of an hours browsing it will happen about 7 times. Also I run AVG (paid) for 2 scans a day and there no Virus etc. My Facebook is also playing up I do not know if this is related ie page scrolling back up, debugging window popping up if i sometimes go to type a comment...this window is from my Tools heading under the title Debugging.............not having fun at the moment. Also Email page is going mental when all this is going on. Tried refreshing Firefox and it may have helped a bit......but still happening...all of the above. Any suggestions. Thank you.
