I have the same problem with my Compaq laptop and finally turned off the
touchpad altogether and got a cordless USB mouse for serious browsing.
I think this is a feature of Firefox which it is possible to
accidentally access by touching the scroll portion of the touchpad, but
I admit I haven't investigated further.

[To forestall the obvious question:  My Compaq has an actual hardware
on/off switch for the touchpad.]
