If I stop moving my cursor, firefox stops processing. There is a new icon beside the tab title, that is a circle with a dot that travels around the circle and then circle turns green and rotates. Both these will stop moving IF I have stopped moving my cursor/mouse. I dont' have this problem in explorer but I prefer firefox. This just started the second day after I upgraded to newest version. This happens on every page, even logging into email or facebook, I have to keep the cursor moving in order for firefox to process and progress to the next page.

Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).


In Firefox 4 you can use one of these to start in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode:

  • Help > Restart with Add-ons Disabled
  • Hold down the Shift key while double clicking the Firefox desktop shortcut (Windows)
