When you go to Fox TV it ask you to install the "new player".  Clicking on the install button downloads the file but firefox freezes and will go no further.  I know it's not my computer because the play works fine in IE7.

Reproducible: Always

can you click on a menu in firefox? or if you click repeatedly does it say not responding?

if the latter,

!analyze -v -hang

if the former, tools>error console
PFS is being retired, and there are no plans to support the installation of additional plugin types (due to history of stability, performance, and security problems plugins introduce). Websites using these plugins should provide their own install information when the plugin is missing or migrate to HTML-based solutions.
