Steps to reproduce:
Upgrading Firefox to version 9 or version 10 causes freezing problems.
If I remove all plugins and restart Firefox in safe mode, nothing changes and the software systematically freezes.
I don't encounter any problem with Firefox 8.0.1. My network configuration is set to "Auto-detect proxy settings for this network". If I set the proxy manually, the software freezes too.
My co-workers have the same issue (on Windows XP). A PC without any previous Firefox install is working perfectly fine with the new FF versions...
What makes you believe that this hang has to do with the networking configuration ?
Please try a new profile
Could be related to Bug 72444 being fixed ?
I removed all my FF profiles and the directory : "D:\Documents and Settings\XXXXXX\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox" and created a new profile. Nothing changes and the software freezes when I set the proxy.
I've downgraded to 8.0.1 with any pb.
Your XP installation is SP2 or SP3 and not only SericePack1 ?
