My FireFox is OK.

How to refresh?

Nothing. If I use only FireFox and OpenOffice, System Monitor says: 30
to 40 % CPU, RAM 20% (of 2 GB), 0% swap and OpenOffice give disturbed
display. If I quit FireFox, run Chromium, CPU is 30%, RAM remain
almost same, and OpenOffice does not show any problem.

So, now I appears that culprit is FireFox :-(
