Is even reproducible in Firefox 10 beta on Linux. The add-ons checker runs forever.

Just found reproducible in 9.0.1

Mozilla/5.0 (Ubuntu; X11; Linux i686; rv:9.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/9.0.1 Firefox/9.0.1
Please enable extensions.logging.enabled in the profile your using and after cancelling the compatibility UI look in the error console to see if there are any errors or warnings displayed.
