User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1.15) Gecko/20101026 Firefox/3.5.15 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1.15) Gecko/20101026 Firefox/3.5.15 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729)

I installed and later reinstalled 3.6 when it came out.  From then on whenever I exited FireFox, my computer would slow to a crawl.  We're talking click the Windows "Start" button and wait 10-15 minutes for the menu to pop up kind of crawl. As I said, I even tried re-installing 3.6 after I figured out what was causing my problems and it still did it.  I reinstalled 3.5 and it cleared the problems up.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Occurred every time I exited FireFox 3.6.12
2.Tired re-installing to see if maybe it was a problem with the original upgrade.  Didn't make any difference at all.
3.Reinstalled 3.5 and it cured problem
Actual Results:
