I seen that after I replied, and also had just replied to a Similar question for Windows sorry, but you could still encounter issues no matter what OS I have been told or seen Linux is less likely to but even still is vulnerable to issues such as viruses. I still suggest a malware scanner of some sort.

Look thru your programs. Make sure you know what each one is and what it does. Do a web search on anything you don't know.

You can check the connection settings.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox menu button/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • Switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox menu button/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance
  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window
