Internet pages won't load unless mouse is moving

Hi. I'm a newbie. Hoping you can help.
My Mac is as described below.
I'm using Firefox as browser, but it won't load web pages.
Discovered that it will work as long as the mouse cursor is moving. But even then it's slower than usual.
Repaired Permissions, but that fixed it for only a couple of minutes, then it started doing it again.
Stripped Firefox off the machine and reinstalled latest version (fetched the installation files from the internet via my PC using a thumbdrive to transfer).
That didn't help.

Hoping someone can help me run down the problem...

What system hacks have you installed on your computer? System hacks are programs that run constantly, and change the behavior of your computer in some way.

Don't know of any, but this may be pertinent:
When I try to go to Gmail, a warning comes up. This is the text:
Quote:
This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect
securely to www.google.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally, when you try to connect securely,
sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are
going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.

What Should I Do?

If you usually connect to
this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is
trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

Technical Details

www.google.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate has expired.
The certificate will not be valid until 3/27/09 5:20 PM.

(Error code: sec_error_expired_issuer_certificate)

I Understand the Risks

If you understand what's going on, you
can tell Firefox to start trusting this site's identification.
Even if you trust the site, this error could mean that someone is
tampering with your connection.

Don't add an exception unless
you know there's a good reason why this site doesn't use trusted identification.

What is your date set to? This message implies that it is not yet March of 2009, but you posted this message in November of 2009, a later date.
