Occasionally when I am searching with Google, I will go to a web site that fails to load completely.  The 'stop loading' button will not work.  Closing the program will not work and even trying to end the Firefox process with the Task Manager fails to end the program.  The only solution is to reboot the PC.  There is no discernible pattern to the web site that cause this error except that the are often associated with using Google News.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Enter URL
2.Wait for loading of page to stall and Firefox to lock up
3.



I run BullGuard in teh background as my firewall and virus package
