Windows 7: Strange monitor/graphics card when using Firefox

Well folks, installed the 11.12 Catalyst drivers without a problem, which I didn't expect to have in the first place. No noticeable improvement, but also no worse than before. I think I'm going to stay with the FF version I'm using now for the time being. I'll try version 10.0b4 in a few days and see if that provides any improvement.

Does anyone suppose part of my problem could be with a monitor setting? I'm running the native resolution of 1600x900 and it seems to perform just fine. The only gaming I do is GTR2, rFactor and Evo and with the new drivers they are fine as well. I just use the default graphic card settings because I've never had reason to worry about changing anything. Might there be some adjustments I can try in the CCC?

I appreciate the help I've received and I'm apt to stumble on a fix if I get pointed in the right direction. Thanks again to all who have pitched in with suggestions.
