I have Dell PC, and I use Windows XP.

After using Firefox for extended periods, my audio starts cutting out, as though someone is pressing play and pause continuously, and the mouse pointer lags.

The only thing that seems to help is restarting the computer.

How do I fix this?

I have same problem on my laptop. I re-install and update my sound driver + update FireFox to last version. For now I don't have problems. What did you try so far ? – Jason Paddle Jul 30 '12 at 12:44
