Build ID: 20110626030229

Steps to reproduce:

I actually don't have to do anything.  It constantly hangs.  I might be away from my computer and I come back and it's hanging.  It's starting to happen very frequently now.  I just cleared my history to see if that helps.  

I'm on windows 64 bit.  I have scanned and rescanned, I do not have a virus, everything works fine in chrome and I do not get this problem.  I have add ons/ extensions - shockwave (latest version), adblock 1.3.8 and adblock element hiding helper 1.1.1

Actual results:

The browser gets a blue circle and just circles for several minutes at a time.

Expected results:

I should be able to just surf the internet in FF but it's getting to be impossible to do this on FF browser.

I could not reproduce the issue on:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:7.0a1) Gecko/20110626 Firefox/7.0a1

Is it a specific website loaded when you get the hang? Could you attach a screenshot of that moment with the blue circle visible?
While hanged could you try to get a crash (i.e. a forced close)?
