FF just freezes with hourglass after i click on a link. Goes nowhere. I can close FF using the Close Window icon, but have to shut down process (Ctrl-Alt-Del) before I can restart. Other apps not affected. Reproducible: Couldn't Reproduce Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
Please report back if the above article helps you troubleshoot the hanging.
Francis, when this is hung is it using a lot of cpu?
Hi: It's still happening. I have to restart FF about five time a day. I'm using Firefox/18.104.22.168. It seems to occur when using the scroll wheel as well. Now FF generates a boilerplate error message and when I click on it, FF closes down. I failed to note the text of the error message, but it is the standard Windows crash message.
Does it also happen with a new profile without any extensions installed, and a Firefox reinstallation in a new empty folder? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_Manager#Creating_a_new_profile
