Why does my cursor continually snap to a screen corner every ten seconds or so?

My cursor is unstable. Every ten seconds or so it will snap to one of the corners of my screen. Could it be a screen refresh? But hasn't happened while making this request. However does have problem with Newspapers, MS games, Java,Google search

You've answered only one of my questions, I have to re-ask.

Does it happen when you launch Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode?

Sorry. No, and it's not happening on this page either. This page is stable.

I did not ask you to test the issue while the Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode article is open.

I am asking you to actually follow the steps described there to troubleshoot the issue.

Ok, tried safe mode - didn't happen. Back to normal mode - does happen with other pages other than this one. This page is stable, others are not. ie, newspapers, and my broker.

Thx for your courtesy, well done. I'll give it a go and repost if I still have trouble.

Good luck. If you find the faulty theme/extension, you can email its developer stating

  • Firefox version,
  • OS,
  • the add-on version,
  • issue description,

so that the developer fixes the issue.

P. S. If the troubleshooting is successful, hit the 'this answer solved this question' link, so that we eventually know that the problem was solved successfully!
