Bouncing Firefox...

I have the newest version of firefox, 1.5.0.3 or something crazy like that. Anyway, whenever I open up a new window of firefox, either when the computer has just started or searching the internet for hours, for some reason firefox "bounces". What happens is the address bar is sitting still, just the content I am viewing literally goes up and down. It bounces probably every half second as well. SOMETIMES if I switch tabs, it decides to stop and sometimes it doesn't. It is almost like it is playing with me.

I have uninstalled firefox, and reinstalled it and yet somehow it has kept my preset tabs and other information like it. So I was wondering if any of you knew how to completely uninstall it taking every bit of mozilla off the computer, so that when I get it again it wont friggin bounce. That, or explain as to how to get rid of the bouncing annoyance.

Thanks!

Is it just firefox that does this or do you notice it on other programs as well?

I'm betting it's more your keyboard/mouse that's doing this, which is probably what billybob is getting at as well.

I had this problem also. You are going to have to update your driver on your touchpad. Do a search on firefoxs help section. Thats where I found it.

How do you uninstall firefox completely anyways? I tryed removing every bit of it from my computer by going through Add/Remove Programs, and then I used the search to weed out the rest. I then downloaded and installed it again and it still had my Bookmarked tabs and history and everything.
