I have tried everything I can think of. maintenance stuff (registry mechanic, ccleaner, ad-aware, symantec, defrag) and network stuff (restart the modem, kill the firewall (nvidias and windows))....

Firefox seems to log lots of errors in the console when I go to pages that the same version of firefox on my laptop (2 year old dell) doesn't have problems with.

I don't know what could be the problem, so all help and idea throwing is appreciated.

You could try reinstalling FireFox.

1) Download a fresh copy of Firefox and save it.
2) Save your bookmarks by exporting them using the Bookmark Manager menu.
3) Uninstall Firefox Using Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs.
4) Delete the Firefox directory under Mozilla in the Program Files directory.
5) Delete the Firefox directory under the Application Data directory in your user profile.
6) Reinstall Firefox using the download from Step 1.
7) Use the Bookmark Manager menu to import the bookmarks you saved in Step 2.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
