While trying to load the website http://munster.gaa.ie the browser window shows some of the text of the website, then seems to freeze while trying to download more of the data. I could click the close button on Firefox but when i tried to re-open firefox the service was already running and needed to be ended from the task manager.

Worked fine in IE

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Try to load munster.gaa.ie
2.Close firefox
3.Try to open new firefox
Actual Results:  
Had to end the service running from task manager

Expected Results:  
The website should have loaded quick like it does in IE.
