It's giving me a headache now.

My browser bounces up and down about 1/4 of an inch. Just up and down, up and down, forever.

If possible,

1 why? 2. solution?

Thank you.

Is it only your browser and not your whole screen? Which browser is it?

To me it sounds like a virus or something..I would do a virus/adware scan if you haven't already.

Only the browser. It's Mozilla Firefox.

Try re-installing the browser. Try using a different browser (see if it's the same.)

Is it on any specific website? Do Anti-virus/spyware scans.

Is it all the time, or when you do something specific? I had a problem with pages in FF jerking around when I scrolled upwards, the problem was actually that the wheel in my mouse was broken.

Sometimes it happens right on browser loadup, but other times it doesn't happen until I click a link, then it happens.

Right now, it's actually not doing in.

I've left my laptop on for about 5 days, and the longer I let it run, seemingly the less it happens. Also, opening new windows seems to help, but not for any longer than 5 minutes or so.

I actually don't have any anti-virus software running. I'll look into that later today. I constantly backup my data, so I'm not reallly worried too much, but I know I should be.

You should definatly look into getting some protection, AVG is a good free antivirus. Do a scan when you download some protection.

Oh, I did also have a problem like this where one of the other symptoms was that it wiped my settings, bookmarks etc on startup. That meant it started with the bookmarks toolbar on the screen like it does by default; and for some reason it shook up and down until I closed the bookmark toolbar. Try closing the toolbar, or just make a backup of your bookmarks, wipe FF and install it again.

How do I backup my bookmarks? Yeah I have a lot of them, it'd suck to lose them all.

Bookmarks > Bookmark Manager > File > Export. Then import them back in after reinstalling.
