Your CPU so old of course it can't cope with latest version of Firefox/Chrome as they require much more resources to run.

Your hardware is ok but your browsers are heavy. My suggestion is to try other browsers, Chrome seem to have improved and is less taxing than Chromium (last I tried). If you don't need those browsers, choose from the many other light weight ones.

I'm amazed that you can tolerate it! The Pentium 4 you're using is more than 10 years old and is something like 20-30 times slower than a modern CPU.
