User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1.1) Gecko/20090715 Firefox/3.5.1

Some webpages seem to stall in the process of loading.  If I click again, they sometimes (but, annoyingly, not always!) load normally.  These are sites I visit regularly, and the problem did not happen (or at least not this often) with the older version of Firefox.  The website where it seems to happen most often is http://www.nytimes.com

Unfortunately, since this website is constantly being updated, I can't give you a reliable headline to click on to reproduce the problem.

Reproducible: Sometimes




I'm afraid I'm not sophisticated enough a user to tell you more.  However, exactly the same thing happens (with the same webpages) when I use my Mac, which I've also updated to Firefox 3.5.  So the problem does seem to be independent of the specific computer and operating system.

The nytimes.com is also mentioned in bug 506550. This in combination with AdBlock.
