For instance wikipedia is one such troublesome site that gives me freezes. I visit one of the pages (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mantis) and halfway through the loading of the page contents, my system totally freezes up; the cursor does not respond, ctrl alt del doesnt work, and the hard disk LED does not flash. After a hard reboot, I reopen Firefox again, restoring my previous session, and reloading that specific page. This time round, everything works out fine and I'm able to browse that page without any problems. From that page however, I click on a link to another wikipedia article (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cricket), and again my system freezes up halfway through loading, and the only solution is a hard reboot again.
This does not seem to be an issue when I use Internet Explorer.
My Firefox version is 3.5.3 and I am running on Windows XP Home edition.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
