I corrected the html errors from Validator, Firefox hangs nevertheless

Firefox still hangs, even after correcting the html-validator errors. (the strange html coding was once created to get the right display positions in browsers)

Firefox 3.5.1 completely chokes on your attachment.

Also, I noticed on pages with many form input elements, the browser hangs when I click to enter text into one. Then when I enter text and click off of it, it hangs again. Is this a related issue?
