What are your PC specs? Are you running firefox 4beta, or 3.6.X stable? Have you tried Firefox in safe mode(no addons?)

Something else to try, if you've tried firefox in safe mode, is to uninstall and reinstall Flash player. Uninstall from add/remove programs, disable in firefox's "addon" area and then download from here: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Firefox's safe mode, or loading firefox when in safe mode?

If firefox's safe mode, disable all your plugins, if it worked in actual "safe mode" on the PC, you should scan your PC for viruses and post in the Am I Infected? forum.
