Changed in firefox (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

Having the same symptoms, but this was resovled for me by turning off smooth scrolling (as commented on https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/firefox/+bug/958852). Can anyone confirm if turning off smooth scrolling resolves this issue for them, as well?
