    When I close my firefox browser, I can still see parts of it on my screen. Basically looks like it is burned on to it. I can see the back buttons and the address bar. It seems to go away after a few hours if I do not open the browser. What is causing that? I have tried to dim my lighting but that doesn't help either.

    On what specific Mac with what exact Mac OS X version do you have this issue? If you have enabled Spaces, does it go away in other Spaces or when you open another application?
    Identify your Mac and Mac OS X version

    I haven't thought to check it with spaces. I will do that today when it does it again and let you know. I have noticed that if I put my hand on the top of my screen it is noticeably hot and the bottom half is cool. I assume that is normal.

    I just checked with spaces, the problem is still there. It can even be seen when the mac is rebooting. :confused:

    This sounds like the image is just burning into the display. Or maybe it's a GPU problem. You might want to take it to an Apple store and see if they can troubleshoot it.
