Was it working before the update?  Do you have a fully updated set of plugins (Java, Flash in particular)?  Do you have older versions of Java installed that may stall or crash, can you uninstall everything but the latest (Java 6 U3)?  Does this happen in Firefox's safe mode (http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Safe+Mode)?

Ok, then one of your extensions or themes is probably the culprit.  Uninstall them one-by-one until you find the one that is causing the issue.

Not fixed as it wasn't a bug in Firefox code in the first place.  Marking INVALID.
