Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8.0.1) Gecko/20060111 Firefox/1.5.0.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8.0.1) Gecko/20060111 Firefox/1.5.0.1

This has only started happening since 1.0.something upgraded itself to 1.5

If a page is loading slowly and I have the temerity to change tabs, then FF appears completly hung.  The cursor sometimes becomes an I-bar insert cursor, sometimes it stays as a pointer, but the underlying application just stops responding.

The only solution then is to kill and restart.

What is unclear is if the long download delay is the first symptom, or if attempting to change tabs is the cause.  The tab change does not occur.

I have been trying to see if the problem is at a particular site, or if downloading flash, but there is no rhyme nor reason.  Today it was a google search that appeared to be taking a long time.

Reproducible: Always
Does this happen in firefox's safemode?
