Ever since I updraded to Win7, Firefox is daily (sometimes multiple times per day) locking up, greying out, and I have to go to Task Manager to close it.  It does on most occasions tell me that it is sending a feedback report, but I have no assurance that it is doing this.  When I re-start Firefox, it does try to go back to my previous page(s), but is not always successful.  This only started to occur when I installed Win 7, and it was happening in the previous version of Firefox before this last upgrade a week or so ago.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce: firefox and read mail on ATT mail page
2.begin to visit trusted web sites from mail -,, etc.
3.locks up and greys out
Actual Results:  
have to open Task manager and force firefox to close - I do notice that sometimes the firefox application is using a lot of cpu capacity

Expected Results:  
go from site to site without locking up
