Appears to hang when http://Yahoo.com is home page. 
When home page is set to other than Yahoo; i.e., http://google.com, then all other sessions load ok.
Can you try in firefox safe mode?

Safe Mode appears to work opening multiple copies; however, same warnings are seen in error console as in non-safe mode.

Warnings are of two types:

Warning: Expected declaration but found '*'.  Skipped to next declaration.
