User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.11) Gecko/20071127 Firefox/2.0.0.11

Firefox freezes frequently when trying to say click on Google mail within a Google application such as igoogle.(http://www.google.com/ig)  It also happens with other sites such as bbc news.
The most recent I had bbc radio running and it froze as I clicked on gmail within the igoogle screen.
Windows task manager indicates that firefox is not responding and the cpu usage is zero.
This problem does not replicate in firefox 3 beta 2, which has other problems.
It may be related to response time but I cannot verify this.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.open igoogle
2.click on mail or calendar
3.frequently get blank screen and on F5, application freezes
