Firefox freezes when a harddrive it is not operating from is doing a lot of writing

more options

Hey, So I have 2 harddrives in my pc. I use one for writing a lot of data and another for my programs (this one is an ssd). I've installed firefox on the one used for programmes. When I dump a lot of data to my other harddrive, firefox stops responding. I would like to know why, because I know my pc can handle the data (when I dump data to the ssd I get 10x the performance). Thannks for your time, Maocx
