I have Windows XP SP3 and after updating to Firefox 3.6.8 I have a problem with Firefox freezing. In every case, trying to use task manager would not work. It wont respond and it will not close. I had to restart my machine every time. The only other app I was running was the anti-virus. After restarting I checked the cache and it is almost always full.
Reporter, are you still seeing this issue with Firefox 4.0.1 or later in safe mode or a fresh profile? If not, please close. These links can help you in your testing.

No reply, INCOMPLETE. Please retest with Firefox 4 or later and a new profile ( Also, ensure you have the most up to date graphics drivers, operating system updates, and plugin versions (flash, java, etc). If you continue to see this issue with the newest Firefox and a new profile, then please comment on this bug.
