Why is my screen freezing?

My screen keeps freezing and distorting images and text - see attached.

This happens on multiple websites but always seems to occur when scrolling to the latter end of the page. It's almost like its a buffering issue but the broadband speed is good and this doesn't happen when using other web browsers.

I have tried completely uninstalling FireFox and reinstalling but it still hasn't fixed the issue.

Any ideas?
