I don't have a problem with ubuntuforums but I do have a very similar 
problem with Facebook. Firefox is my main browser (currently 18.01). it 
will start off normally and I can access facebook without a problem but 
over a period of 24 hours (my PC runs 24\7) Facebook will become 
unusable, cpu usage is bouncing all over the place and scrolling is 
jerky. I normally I have to close just the Facebook tab give it a few 
seconds and then restart Facebook in a new tab. All other sites I access 
are OK, I have had this problem for about the last 4 version of Firefox 
that has been released, annoying but I just live with it.
