User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2b4) Gecko/20091124 Firefox/3.6b4
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2b4) Gecko/20091124 Firefox/3.6b4

Many links and bookmarks under 3.5 and the 3.6b4 do not respond when initially clicked.  After two or more clicks the link may work.  Load times also appear to be slow.
I have compared this operation under IE and Chrome and neither has this issue with the identical links.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on Link or Bookmark
2. Load bar appears but remains empty
3. Clicking again may work or the load bar only partially fills, then stops

Expected Results:  
Clicking on link once should immediately bring up target destination.
On other browsers, when clicking on these links, response is immediate.

Also running AVG 9.0.716 and Zonealarm 8.0.298.

Does the issue still occur if you start Firefox in Safe Mode?

How about with a new, empty profile?

Reporter -> Are you still experiencing this issue? Have you tried safe mode or a new profile?

Problem appears to be related to either Zonealarm firewall and/or AVG anti-virus software interaction.  Replaced these software with Comodo and with Avast and problem no longer occurs.
