This occurs unpredictably and can effect any website. Other browsers installed on the same computer are not effected. Other installations of 3.5.2 on other computers on the same LAN do not have this issue. Creating a new profile did not help. Disabling IPv6 in about:config did not help. Downgrading from 3.5.2 to 3.5.1 and 3.5.0 had no effect. Downgrading to 3.0.13 worked around the problem. The Firefox profile was not replaced or altered when downgrading. The effected system is a dual core AMD system running Windows XP SP2 32bit. The two other computers on my LAN using 3.5.2. without issue are single core Intel systems running XP SP2 32bit. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: Occurs randomly and is not reproducible on command BUT occurs regularly enough to make 3.5.X unusable. This may be a version of bug 446249 (bug listed for FF 3.0) in the 3.5 series. There are reports of the same problem by other users in the Mozillazine forum: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1341345
