The referenced url is loaded forever on SOME PCs after updating to and as a result firefox hangs. So far I was nt able to identify why it works on some pcs running and on others not.
URL is running on different version of ie, safari, google chrome and so far on every firefox version. is the first version which makes trouble.

URL embeds a java applet, which is dynamically added to the dom via the official deployJava.js javascript library. 
In a wireshark trace I cannot even see a call to load the applet jar file, which seems to indicate that the "hang" is happening before actually loading the applet.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the browser
2. Go to
3. That s it browser is hanging

Hang happens every time on an effected pc.
In my office there a four people and 2 have the issue.
Actual Results:  
Firefox hangs and needs to be killed.

Expected Results:  
Firefox loads the url as any other version before.

After downgrading to the problem was solved.
Another try to install generated the same result.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv: Gecko/2009061305 GranParadiso/3.0.12pre

This appears to work for me; no hang in any case.

You lucky guy. :-) 
Do you know about an easy way to find out why/where it is hanging?
I m a software engineer so I know about the basics but I ve never did anything with firefox development.

As I ve mentioned it is not occuring on every machine....
No hang for me either. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.2a1pre) Gecko/20090724 Minefield/3.6a1pre (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) ID:20090724045715. What version of Java are you running, does it happen in Firefox 3.5.1 or later, and does it happen in Firefox Safe Mode?
