Question owner

And once it is stuck in processing .... it does not responds to any other link of the same website unless the original screen (on which processing struck) completes the page load .... this happens when i saved something on company's system .... and it is only me facing this issue (all other colleagues are fine) in every browser i tried .... rest of the websites like google , bbc all works fine even when the one of the tab is stuck

Question owner

Same problem

Question owner

Well I solved it .... I found that I was having windows firewall turned on along with my McAfee Antivirus firewall ...... I just turned off windows firewall and it is perfect now ..... hope this helps :)

I also fixed this by addressing antivirus. I have MS security essentials, & went into settings and Excluded Firefox.exe under excluded processes. It is like night and day, pages load so fast now it is hard to believe it is the same machine. If you are having page loads that grind on for ever look to your antivirus, and neuter it a bit.
