This is comp 1 in my signature.

After using firefox for a little while it suddenly goes laggy. I can still interact, but it lags like hell. I cant press x in the corner (no reaction), or that lags to...
I can terminate the application through the task manager and from there it closes down quickly, as it should. The task manager also claims that it uses 50 of the cpu, which it normally doesnt. I barely have any toolbars at all, just java, MS net framework assistant and vacuum places.

Close Firefox. Go Start>All Programs>Mozilla Firefox, click on Mozilla Firefox (safe mode).
Use it for a while this way and see, if same thing happens.

Last time i checked if you have AVG Toolbar installed it will cause firefox to have high cpu usage, and also caused mine to "lag" in a way similar to what you described. If you go to Tools>Add-ons>Extensions. You can disable it from there, and it should fix the issue. (If you can't find it in the extensions menu, but you're sure you have it installed, try the plug-in menu.)
Grace is given freely, but respect must be earned.

I disabled the plugin and it has not acted odd again. Seems like that solved it.
