The activity circle in the upper right corner of the browser (you know what i'm talking about) will spin for a half a second and then stop with the page still at the homepage. Restarting firefox solves the problem for about 20 firefox startups. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.Start firefox 2.Repeat until problem surfaces 3. Actual Results: It occured after 17 starts. Expected Results: Loaded the pages.
clear cache, history and download history and try again
I've already tried that, I even created a new profile. Problem still occurs.
Can you try in Firefox -safe-mode for a while and see if it reoccurs ? Windows Start Menu -> Firefox -> safe mode
It did not reoccur in Safe Mode (yet)
If it won't reoccur it is most definitly one of your extensions. You may either need to update or remove one of them
do you still see this problem? please update the bug with comment and/or close as appropriate. (bug has no comment since 2007-01-01)
OK, glad it is gone, but not FIXED unless we know what patch did this.
