Also, I'm pretty sure you meant "stutter".

Intel core 2 duo/6GB ram/ASUS EAH5450 Silent video card/Win 7/Firefox 5.0.
Often, when I go to Yahoo Mail, the main frame shakes left and right a few pixels and causes my cpu to jump to 100% until I use task manager to kill firefox. No other web site causes this problem. I work around it by opening my Yahoo mail in Chrome and then everything else in Firefox. Problem occurs even after a fresh reboot and no other tasks running.
I suspect it might be a video driver issue since I never saw this issue before I installed the video card, but ASUS shows no newer drivers for my card.
I guess I'll just live with it!
