Sometimes when I scroll in firefox, I will a block of the same content from another portion of the page rendered where it shouldn't be, almost like the browser didn't scroll properly.

I suspect that this has something to do with my video driver, and some stability issues I've been experiencing. I'm using the recommended driver, 280.13.

Can you take a screenshot of an example? Add it to your question if you can. – Tom Brossman Dec 27 '11 at 8:49

And then ran:

sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin
