Hi, as usual any help is massively appreciated.
A few months back I noticed when navigating to any Google-operated page (Youtube sign-in, any Google search, other search messengers like Yahoo and Bing as well) the browser would freeze. It wouldn't go quite "unresponsive" as the "page loading" icon continued to spin and I could scroll, however I could not click any buttons or links and the cursor would not change within the Firefox window.
This phenomena occurred both with Firefox 3.(whatever the most recent versions were) and Firefox Beta 8. After an update to the primary Firefox the problem went away and later the same problem was solved when Firefox beta 8 switched to Beta 9. I noticed the problem didn't happen in Google chrome or a sandboxed Firefox.
Recently I've had someone else who has had the same problem with the most recent batch of Firefox software (Beta 10) and I can't for the life of me solve it. We've tried removing Google Chrome and it hasn't helped at all: Firefox still freezes. The one difference between us is that she uses Google.se and Google.ee as opposed to my usage of the standard Google.com.
