Firefox 12 and periodic spinning wheel on MAC OS

Firefox 12 on MAC OS 10.7.4 frequently gets the spinning wheel and temporarily locks up. Just typing this message I've gotten it several times. I sometimes get it when I switch between tabs also. Google Chrome seems to work fine.

I have enabled 32-bit mode, and disabled hardware acceleration in Firefox. I have also deleted the WebEx plugin as suggested on another site. Any ideas what is going on?

One more thing...I tried downgrading to 11.5 and still experienced the same issue. I'm back at 12.0 now.

Try disabling addons and plugins and updating them

Did that... restarted Firefox with add-on disabled. Also updated the out-of-date add-ons.

OK...I tried the first one and that didn't work. The second suggestion, "Delete duplicated Session Restore files" seem to have fixed my problem. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Thanks!
