Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.0.4) Gecko/2008102920 Firefox/3.0.4

when it hits 99% it freezes, not just the download window, but firefox in general.

the rest of the pc is fine while this is happening.

it never used to do this before.

Have you tried cleaning out the download box? Open it and click "Clean Up." That might fix it.

If you have just recently upgraded to FF 3 then you might not have known, but whenever a download completes, it now virus scans the file. I'm not sure if it uses an online scanner, built in scanner, or your own scanner.
