Is smooth scrolling turned on in Firefox (I think it is on by default
since 12.10)? It can consume a lot of CPU. You can turn it off through
Edit>Preferences>Advanced>(general tab) Uncheck 'use smooth scrolling'.
You could try turning off hardware acceleration too if that is causing
problems, though normally you'd want that left on.
