I just recently got a new laptop, and since the minute I've installed firefox on it there has been lag when scrolling webpages. It seems to start off not too badly, with there being some stuttering when I first open firefox, however it seems like the longer I'm browsing the worse it gets, to the point where sometimes I'll start scrolling and then a second later firefox will just jump to the bottom of the page. Internet Explorer and Chrome both have perfectly smooth scrolling.

I've tried numerous things to fix it already, this is some of the stuff I can remember trying: -Turning off hardware acceleration and smooth scrolling -Starting in safe mode -Complete reinstall with new profile -Updating graphics card and intel drivers

Specs of the new laptop: Core i7 GTX 970M 16Gb RAM

4 months later, and a clean install of Windows 10 seems to have fixed it. Was probably a bad Windows 8.1 install.

Still didn't help, though I did notice that Tor is set not to use hardware acceleration.

I have also tried unchecking smooth scrolling and combining those with Firefox safe mode, all to no avail.
