Whenever I try to get to a website through my favorites in Firefox, it always tends to freeze, regardless of what site I go to (even this one). It's kinda odd since this has never happened to me before until recently a couple weeks ago when I noticed I could sometimes not get to Youtube. And because of it freezing, I have to go to my Task Manager and end the process through that. I think I can x out of it, but with the usual "Not Responding" message that comes up and asks you if you want to terminate (of course, this tends to take longer).

I can get to sites just fine if I type in the websites, but it's kind of a pain to have to remember every single site (in terms of trying to remember which is .org, .com, .net, etc). So far, it's only through favorites that I notice this happening. Also, the bookmarks tab in the menu bar works fine as well. It's the bookmarks display tab thingy that opens up a menu on the left side of the screen that's glitchy. I'll look around on it to see what else causes it to freeze. Help is appreciated.

P.S. If you need a visual representation because my worded description sucks, I can give that as well. I can whip up what I'm trying to say in about 5 minutes tops.
