i never had this problem before with ubuntu but i just started having my screen just start flashing clicking on application for no reason. scrolling up and down by itself.

are there any application or steps i can do to fix this?

I've experienced this with Firefox3 as well. I don't think it's a virus. Should probably report it to launchpad though.

It might have something to do with the refresh rate. Used to be if your refresh rate was set wrong, ie, 60 instead of 65, you'd get a bit of a flicker.

I find this only happens occasionally, and attribute it to my track-ball/mouse, and not Ubuntu/Firefox.

Something I find more annoying is the page slipping out from under the cursor. When I go to place the curser on a link in a page, when I click on the link/text/image, the page will lurch/scroll out from under my cursor. Only since Firefox3

Does it continue to happen after a restart?
Did you recently do an update?
Does it behave like this without you touching the computer?
