When i push down on my scroll wheel for auto scroll function it blacks out the screen. This just started recently. It doesn't happen on Chrome. Help?


I tried uninstalling firefox then reinstalling. It didn't help. The only thing I can think of that I might have done is... I use a program to find and remove junk files and possibly I junked a necessary file? But I've used this in the past several times and firefox was not affected. I'm on Windows XP.
