When Im in Firefox and online, the computer begins to go idle as if its disconnecting with the little round circle in the background, as the computer freezes up and I can do nothing. Then it just closes the site and I go back to the home page as if Im off line, then, it restores and goes back to the online page I was previously on.

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

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