Firefox SOMETIMES, not all the time, becomes un responsive and freezes upon
startup of the browser

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.none it only does it when i seem to use it too much
2.directway said i should use mozilla for my browser but it seems that IE is
actually getting faster than it was before. 

3.I have uninstalled firefox (current release) and reinstalled it but to no avail!!!

Expected Results:  
should have loaded properly to my homepage
try in Firefox-safemode to see if it's extension causing the problem

I am having the same problem to no avail.  Was working fine this morning.  And now wont load.  Even after uninstalling and reinstalling twice.  Just wont load.  I am on the web with IE as that is the only browser that will work at the moment.

I have a desktop and a laptop.  FF2 works fine on the desktop, but not on the laptop which is a new duo Mobile Intel® 945GM Express Chipset Family Toshiba P105 with 1GB RAM and 160GB hard disk.  FF2 starts, but during the process of opening the starting page, it freezes and becomes non-responsive 100% of the time regardless of whether it's started in safe mode or not.  I've tried every suggestion on this site (which I have diligently trawled) to absolutely no avail.  I've even changed the IP.  I've tried the EN-US, EN-GB and Google toolbar variants.  Same dismal result every time!  As premature baldness is beginning to occur, I'd like to know what I can do to get FF2 working on the laptop please?

I have seen this bug also on my friends Toshiba laptop when he turns on the laptop (Windows 7) and opens Firefox --> Firefox freezes. If he opens any other page Firefox is running without freezing.
