> Which proxy server software ?

Squid
Squid should not cause any issues.
Can you please try the Firefox safemode to be sure that this isn't caused by an extension ?

I have no proxy here to test it myself...

I have tried the firefox safemode and repeated the steps today. But the result is same.

It can't respond user input and the scrolling will be locked up for about 2-3 minutes. Then the page will be back from freeze mode and response to the input , the scrolling will also be unlocked.
Is this still a problem ?
I going to mark this incomplete - the test wfm and it lacks further input from original reporter.

it could also be a dup of sorts of 648603 where some ad servers nyt uses were hanging and monopolizing the small proxy connection pool.
