I noticed this since yesterday. Under Linux mint all desktops have been painfully slow. A scroll of the mouse wheel and 2-5 seconds later it will jump up/down the page. Cursor hanging only when in the window and anywhere else on screen is fine.
Wondering if anyone here is seeing this too. Chrome, IE are fine

    Not seeing it in Ubuntu 18.04 or Fedora 29.

    I tried that and it made no change. Also reset firefox, cleared cache etc. Hard to get there with the hangup 
    I completed another x99 build monday and moved a few folding cards to it. New install of mint and even that one is seeing this. 
    I may just use a different browser for a bit and see if others report anything. May be something local.

    You might need to re install to get rid of whatever conflicting issue you are having.

    Oddly enough I noticed this today on my work laptop, home desktop, and personal laptop. Was starting to think it was a conspiracy of my machines.

    So I found and replaced a 25 foot chew toy of my cats that used to have nice shielding and cat5 plugs on each end and all went back to normal. I cant figure why only firefox was being affected though.

    Glad you got it sorted out.  Seen a lot of weird things over the years.  My wife got a chuckle out of this one.

    This new rendition of FF has always felt like beta software to me...Many features are flaky at best. I switched to Vivaldi and never looked back.
