Every time I download something whether its a program or file, Firefox would completely freeze for a few seconds and then go back to normal and resume the download. I find it very irritating, especially when I am trying to do something else on a different tab whether its working on school work or just watching a video. Is there a fix for this or will this be fixed in an upcoming update?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?
