So Unstable and driving me mad!!

My system is driving me nuts.. Its a fresh install of 8.10 with very
little extra added..
Firefox crashes all the time.. Thunderbird occasionally crashes..
Openoffice freezes or wrecks documents.. Printing is a nightmare with
errors or not printing correctly or at all..
I have used this exactly same hardware for 7.10 and its was fine.. About
6 months ago I started having issues with Firefox on 7.10 but on 8.10 I
just seem to have issues all the time..
So the fist thing I would like to do is make sure my hardware is good..
Are there any system stress test apps that I can easily run to make sure
its not a hardware issue??
I hope it is hardware because my faith in Linux is taking a knock and I
have used it entirely for the last 8 years.. I really hope Linux isn't
heading the Windows way..
If it not hardware I don't know what my options are other than to try
another distro but I really don't want to do that..
Anyone go any suggestions?
