whenever i go to click on a link the page partially loads then it freezes.  It is only the window that freezes. Then the whole page turns white including the tool and address bars.  When i go to the task manager to close the window (which is the only way it will close) it says it is still running but the page never shows up.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. search on google or another sight with links
2. click on link to another page
Actual Results:  
the page loads partially and then it freezes and turns white but is still running according to the task manager but the page never loads

Expected Results:  
the page should load
