What do you mean by "freeze" -- is Firefox really unresponsive and you have to kill the process? If so is the CPU usage really high or not? or does it just do nothing on that page and you can just go somewhere else to keep browsing?

Any errors in the error console (Tools menu)?

Did earlier versions of Firefox 2 work? Did Firefox 3 work until the 3.0.1 upgrade?

That URL is unreachable to us so there's no way we're going to be able to diagnose what is going wrong. This bug is probably headed for an INCOMPLETE resolution unless someone from your company who runs that site wants to chime in here.

I have a similar issue with eBay.  I can give you two examples, but no specific URL's.

1)  As a buyer, I was wanting to bid on an item.  In order to do that, I had to link my paypal account with my eBay acct.  I think it was when I was sent to the paypal login screen that FireFox froze on me.

2)  As a seller, I had to again log into my paypal acct with the same results as above.

When FF freezes on me, it become totally unresponsive for several minutes.  There is little or no CPU usage.  I cannot go to another tab and browse.  I had to ctrl-alt-del and kill the process both times.

Just an uneducated guess, but could it have something to do with going to a secure web page?

Anyway...  I am running FF 3.0.5, WinXP Pro, on a Dell Inspiron 9300 with 2GB ram.

I am new to eBay so I cannot give you any information regarding if it worked with earlier versions of FF.  Sorry.  If I can give you any other information that might be of help, please let me know.
