kernel upgrade messed up internet video?

I think an upgrade to kernel 2.6.22-14-generic messed up my internet video. video starts and either freezes or just closes my firefox browser.
Sometimes the browser just fades to a different color and freezes. I don't know if it's the kernel or the firefox as they have both been upgraded.
i reinstalled both, changed video drivers. no luck. Also when I open my mail I can see the last web page I was on just for a second before my mailbox comes up. Can anyone help. Also I would like to know how to go back to an older kernel.

You might already have an older kernel installed. If so, you can select it from the GRUB menu. You can display the GRUB menu by pressing the escape key immediately after the POST tests. I like to have it always display the GRUB menu at boot rather than hide it. You can cause it to do that by either removing or commenting out the hiddenmenu line in /boot/grub/menu.lst.
